Chavo formed as a London-based Balkan recital outfit playing acoustic music to seated audiences. Very quickly the audiences began to stand up and the show times moved from 3pm to 3am. Sweating it out on the oom-pah music circuit became the norm, and after many years Chavo felt a desire for change. They waved goodbye to the traditional material (often sung in Roma or Serbian) and crafted an album of original songs in their home tongue - English. A change in line up and instrumentation also followed as they caught up with the technology of the 1970’s.
What appears to have distilled from this epic journey is both imaginative and intriguing. A percussion heavy, mandolin infused, vintage keys indie band with seductive female bv’s, pounding bass lines, 4-floor dance rhythms and harmonic discord - a firm footing in the west with a nod to the east.
JOHN BLOOD AND THE HIGHLYS
John says: “I born in England, grew up in Trinidad in a house full of music. Plenty singing used to take place everyday, and more so when we go Church on Sunday.. Now I in London, living as a musician. Through the highs and the lows of life, music has been there with me. Now I have to give back to music whatever I can.. Where de name come from?
