Malaysian born multi-instrumentalist Kelly Teh and London-based Jazz singer Cris Tanzi teamed up to create the most exotically inviting single which you’ll hit play on this year.
The chemistry perceptibly spilt from “Amano” as the Indie power couple poured their respective talents, soul and culture into the incandescent soundscape. The Latin Jazz single boasts accessible elements of Hip Hop along with infusions of Funk and Soul to create a dynamic hit which may put you off monocultural music for life.
My unilingual mind may not have been able to extrapolate the exact meaning from the lyrics, but the purifying, warming tones were efficacious all the same.
You can check out the sublimely sun-kissed soundscape for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud now.
