Alarke at Nublu
Jan 22, 2014 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm| $10
Electronic beats merge with Django Reinhardt’s gypsy jazz in a style that culminates in beautiful music and dangerous rhythms under compelling vocals.
Alarke’s voice bears both tone and control earned through opera training and the emotional connection of a jazz and soul singer. Also a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter, Alarke has laid the groundwork for a fresh, distinctive, and unforgettable sound.
Her songs, full of infectious melodies and dangerous rhythms, blend floating, jazzy vocals with poignant lyrics. Manipulation of electronic beats, synth pads, acoustic bass lines, and glitchy textures shapes a modern orchestration under the gypsy jazz guitar’s hot rhythms and haunting acoustic licks.
