Once you hit play on Clifford Brown and Jean Bassa‘s Mother Nature EP, you won’t want it to end!
Recorded six years ago on Garageband by Brown and Bassa with 2 Karaoke Microphones, the project was later buried on a hard drive never to be heard again. Thankfully the lost tracks have been rediscovered, and a full-length album called ‘Samba Del Sol’ is on the way via Banoffee Pies.
Preceding the album is a three track EP which opens with the soothing vibrations of Que Seña. The production recorded initially as just an instrumental; the song has been reignited and revamped with a vocal insert from the beautiful Ella Mae Sueref.
The three tracks making up Mother Nature EP all have a big carnival and Latin feel. With each member bringing their cultural influences and backgrounds to the project. Bassa’s heritage in Mauritius and Brown’s childhood in South America alongside Sueref’s Spanish language fluency reflect the multicultural makeup of the trio.
Ahead of the release, you can stream Que Seña, which can be heard via the Bandcamp player below. You can also pre-order the EP below.
