Truth BeTold - "Truth Betold"
[ Galagos 091 ]

MP3: £0.79

‘Truth BeTold’ is the new single by Shama to be released on Label Fandango on Friday 8th September. It is taken from her new album of the same title to be released early next year.

Truth be Told is a standout, dreamy track switching between English and French vocals and mixing traditional and contemporary melodies and instrumentation. Championed by the likes of Gilles Peterson, Tom Robinson, BBC Introducing, BBC3’s Lopa Kothari, BBC London, BBC Asian Network, The Arts Desk and more, Shama has been compared to Bjork, MIA and The Cardigans. Shama is a London-based sitarist, singer & composer. She performs with a full six-piece electro-acoustic band, or duo, with live Sitar, uniquely taking it out of the traditional context, across genres including pop, jazz, live electronica, worldbeats, Indian/western classical melodies, folk storytelling & beat poetry.

'Imagine Dead Can Dance and Björk getting together in a folk club, to make jazzy trip-hop records...with sitars.’ - Songwriting Magazine
