Duo Singh and Blanes sing timeless love ballads that cross musical continents and cultures. An intimate portrait is drawn between these two musicians, each song performed acts as a vignette of a deeper love story.
Singh (The Bombay Royale) plays a combination of Indian instruments, the sitar and tanpura, and sings in English and in her native Punjab; accomplished pianist Blanes (The Bamboos, The Melodics, The New Black) minimalist in his approach to this project has drawn near, with his baritone, a deep simplicity in lyrics and phrasing. Their tender heartfelt performances and high musicianship are a rare sight and sound; playful and earnest.
