She also performs some old-time standards of the French “chanson,” mixing them with grooving reggae rhythms and dub deflections. Singing and playing ukulele, Dahlia is accompanied by George Saenz from South Texas on button accordion and trombone, Yoshiki Yamada from Japan on bass, Chris Hansen from California on drums, and Diego Cebollero from Argentina on guitar. Collectively they are called The Blue Dahlia.
