THE ODD BEATS
Dila V & The Odd Beats are all about multinational hip shimmying gypsy folk and roots from far away lands.
Fronted by the spellbinding Dila Vardar, this Bosporus-straddling blend of Turkish folk and irresistible Balkan dance beats comes with sinuous hints of Greek Rebetiko amongst other tasty world music flavours.
Lisa Marini takes flavours from Latin America, with a hint of Gypsy found in a Jungle, combined with a dash of delta Blues.
‘Her self-penned songs are achingly melodic and artfully delivered, Lisa is spell-binding and mesmerising.’ Paul Latham - Live Nation
While it would be easy to label Cate Ferris as just another singer/songwriter, this would be selling her short as the ingeniously crafted sonic jewels she embellishes her songs with clearly testify.
Armed with a simple musical arsenal that includes guitar, flute and keyboard, Ferris is also not averse to using old school technology in her performance such as a cassette recorder, megaphone and a charity shop found electronic FX box. To this set-up she also adds samples of her own live playing and vocals, steadily building up intricate layers of rhythm, reverb and electronic chorusing that creates the illusion of an imaginary band echoing behind her. With the pressing down of a foot pedal, however, the spell is immediately broken, before yet another entrancing song is pulled out from her seemingly bulging songbook.
Ferris’s special talent is partly in the tradition of such noble singer/songwriters as Kevin Ayers and John Martyn – while still retaining her own unique vision that is bristling with humanity and bold invention.
