Sever Combo - Mashkara
I'm back after some lay-off! A ridiculously busy schedule, including a superb performance in the Penang Salsa Festival 2015 as well as teaching a host of amazing and awesome Salsa and Rueda classes mean that my amateur DJ career is not the smoothest, but that's how things are. There's a time and place for everything, right?
Today's Song of the Day is by a Russian band, Sever Combo, which apparently roughly translates as 'Northern Combo'. The title of the song is 'Mashkara'. Click on the link below and have a listen and tell me what you think about it:-
Because many of the songs are in Russian, for a non-Russian speaking dude, its really tough to find their songs but I've found a way (as only the madness of Dom can). Still, good luck in finding more of their songs.
This group packs a full band with trumpets, saxophones and the works. The style of their music, at first listen, doesn't sound entirely Latin, but that's a good thing. They managed to incorporate a local sound and marry it with Salsa, making Sever Combo one hell of a band if you're looking for different sounds to groove to.
Any friends in Russia? I'd like to find out more about these guys!
