ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Not just another Latin party band!!!

Fast rising West Midlands 5 piece Lament stir up a wonderful evocative concoction of irresistible world grooves and latin fever. They cross boundaries mixing up gypsy and latin rhythms refusing to be labelled as any particular genre blending jazz, ethnic groove and flamenco styles all underscoring memorable and original melodic songs tinged with lyrical melancholy but always managing to come out joyous and life affirming. You cannot resist the overlaying of countless rhythms and quality acoustic musicianship.

Embracing world sounds but steadfastly rooted in their UK urban setting Lament have been seducing audiences who want more than just latin rhythms. You can dance, you can listen but you will be enticed and bewitched by their passionate and exhilarating performances and leave dancing with their infectious melodies whizzing round your head. Their grooves are spiced with Arabic, rumba, Cuban, jazz and brazilian bossa nova flavours with English words that talk of longing and loss. This is more than just dance music!

Fronted by Kath Kimber, this 5 piece have to be seen live to marvel at the energy and performances of incredible improv and freestyling. The band have spent the last year tirelessly touring to nail their sound and to promote their album.

Lament released their second studio album in 2007 This Ain’t Rio and sales are so successful that the album is now in its second print run. The follow up 'Sun Soaked' has now been released and they are currently touring Art Centres across the UK throughout 2009.

Sun Soaked
Having purchased Lament's first album 'This Ain't Rio' I was curious to see if they could follow up and develop further their own unique style of latin jazz.
I must admit this new offering is their best yet. The performances are more assured with some stunning solos and more touching songwriting. If you like world fusion and latin grooves this is a great album with catchy hooks all over the place and listening to it brings back many memories of my Mediterranean travels. From strength to strength
