Over the past couple of years, singer/songwriter Nala Lakaschus and producers instrumentalists Helge Hasselberg and Janto Djassi have dedicated themselves to making music with devoted attention to detail. Their different musical backgrounds range from pop, soul and jazz to hip-hop and punk, fusing together to create an unpredictable and unique sound. They have traveled across continents to record with traditional griots in Senegal as well as contemporary masters such as New York based drummer Jörn Bielfeld. The result is an incomparable live experience with Nala Lakaschus at its center, telling her story to an audience who is being led through dreamy and sometimes gloomy worlds by the band. One foot steps into the electronic future, the other still in the analog past. This, is Heartbeast.
