Live with no tricks, just like it was when the fab four were on stage, straight from the West End, “Let it Be” is coming to Leipzig. It’s been 50 years since the release of their first album, “Please Please Me” and I know every word to every song. I’ll bet you do too.
Here’s what the Huffington Post is saying.
And Time Out:
Sometimes this job brings me joy. Last week I got a pre-release copy of Annuluk’s new album “Ushna” due out 12 April. Basically I’ve pretty much had it on repeat since then. It’s world music, but it’s more than that. It’s an expression of a roots based musical journey through India, West Africa, Spain and American jazz mixed with European electronic samples and distorted dub beats…..all that with the heartful powerful mature voice of Miša. I can’t say enough about the diverse quality of her voice. I don’t want to pigeon-hole the music, but Björk and Portishead came to mind as I listened to some of it. I have to say my favorite song is Mamangoni with its funky fretwork, groovy percussion, flute and that voice……but then, I am a huge fan of Afro Beat!
Here’s where you get lucky….next week is a record release party!

You may have read my blurb about Gon Von Zola, the Leipziger in London who’s making his way in the music scene. Hard to imagine anyone breaking up with someone so charming, but it happens to the best of us. It’s what we do with the experience that makes us different. I know it’s a horrible thing to say and I feel kind of bad saying it, but it was a good thing for us. His new Budda Cakes release, The Edge of Different, has been proclaimed the ultimate break-up album. What it is is a whimsical musical journey to a place we’ve all been. This time the darkness is a fun place to be. Wow! And just in time for Valentine’s Day!
