SARGEANT AND COMRADE
Yolanda Sargeant’s rich, smoky vocals – playful or melancholy, joyful or pensive – come in over top of a fresh and unexpected mixture of elements in each song. Sometimes it’s ‘40s swing piano riffs tinkling over a languid hip hop beat. Sometimes it’s haunting flamenco guitar mixed with reggae styles blended with soulful trip hop. Always, it’s distinctive and fascinating. Always, you can bet on it to draw you in.
This Calgary band have been creating their unique music melange for more than six years, and it shows in the polish of their delivery and the confidence of their risk-taking. Sargeant’s vocal style infuses inspirations like Billie Holiday, Lauryn Hill and Erykah Badu into a style entirely her own. It comes together with the sonic architecture of rapper-producer Evgeniy Bykovets “Comrade”, bassist Marvin Kee “the fly” ). Comrade has described it as: “The purest definition of ‘Canadian’ music there is – a bunch of cultures coming together creating something brand new.”
La Mosca’s sound is not easily categorised or defined. Their influences vary to the likes of Paco De Lucia, Rodrigo Y Gabriel, Funkadelic and Earth Wind and Fire.
The result upon hearing them however is without peer.
They sound like La Mosca.
Not funk…under-funk. Not soul…every-soul. Jazzm. Gypsick. Flamencool.
Journey and arrival. Jarrival. Desire and satisfaction. Satis-fire.
La Mosca are best described as ‘Spanish erotica laid on a bed of groove’.
Marvin Kee ‘the fly’ – bass/guitar
David Matyas – guitar
Brent Van Dusen – drums/percussion
