An unusual combination that works very well, I reckon. Ignore the album samples & listen to the full tracks:

I've booked them to play Darbucka next month & would be really interested to know what people think.

Thanks

I'm glad to hear this, Jamie. I've mentioned Sacha Silva once before on the 'what are you listening to now' thread - a song called "The Argument" which I think I thought was called "Anatomy of a Coup" which is the title of the album the track is on - and they are my friends on MySpace. When will they be in London?

Thanks Judith

Sacha & the band are playing Darbucka on Thursday 4th June. I don't suppose that by chance you happen to be over in the UK then?

I'm glad I'm not the only one who likes Sacha's music! It has a musicality & beauty to it that's far removed from the empty flash & dash of most "culture crossing" projects.

Cheers

Jamie
