Find Your Bliss In Mad Satta's Warm, Soulful Embrace
It was a moment of Soundcloud serendipity that instantly resonated with the realization that, 'this band is going to go places'. When we came across Mad Satta back in 2013, it was more than evident that the New York-based eight-piece possessed such a supremely soulful amalgam of hip-hop, jazz, reggae and soul that it was only a matter of time before many more ears than our own would be under their spell. Led by singer Joanna Teters' husky, richly emotive vocals and driven by the band's superbly accomplished musicianship, their mellifluous brand of honeyed neo-soul embraced its lush keys, bold horns and deep grooves in such a warmly inviting way that knew bigger things were surely on the horizon.
So it has proved, with the band going on to a prestigious residency at Zoo Labs in California along with opening for Goapele (and Teters for Sam Smith) while, more recently, they sold out their headlining show at the Apollo Cafe in New York. Having received critical acclaim for their 'Comfort' album and 'Break Me Free' EP, here the band showcase just why all who listen fall under their spell with a bewitching slice of soul-soothing neo-soul live-and-direct from the renowned Daryl's House (Daryl Hall of Hall & Oates).
