about

Amira's new album 'Mystic Dance' is a marriage of the traditional with the modern. Its elegant, organic form allows for ancient songs to sit side-by-side with more recent classics of the genre, not forgetting, of course, Amira's own compositions or, indeed, a version of Kurt Weill's 'Speak Low'. It is a celebration of ancient East African roots that have been catapulted into futuristic desert blues, and it compels us to expand our vision.
