Watch List: Let Tash Sultana Take You 'Higher'
'Lose yourself in the music, the moment' - a most noble Oscar and Grammy-winning sentiment, for sure, but one that is often most elusive in its realization. When we came across Australian singer-songwriter Tash Sultana last year, it quickly became evident that she in fact embodied and embraced just such a notion with the immersive facility of her hypnotizing talent. Blending together impressive skills with acoustic/electric guitar, beat-boxing, looping and stomp box to craft a truly distinctive folk/roots/reggae/singer-songwriter inspired sound, Sultana proved that her ability to absorb and enchant the listener's attention came with an authenticity of creative expression that was rooted in a deeply intuitive, uninhibited natural talent. Making her mark on the Australian scene through her busking, live shows and festival appearances - she is currently touring across Australia - she here reminds of the arresting charm of her amalgam of beat-boxing, layered vocals and intricate guitar solos with 'Higher'.
