in early 2015 a plan was hatched to make a 70s funk style album with at least TWO drummers per track, and it grew from there.
along the way we added some amazing musicians with brass, percussion, bass, guitars…
after a year of recording all over the world, there were enough tracks for three mini albums.
the first featuring the soulful voice of Rokhsan is Back to 169th Street
The sound of the project is defined by the choice of players
