I love Kerieva‘s voice! its beautiful, passionate and intense!
Having a split Manouche (‘Gypsy’) and Irish lineage, Kerieva’s musical palette creates a rich soundscape reflecting her heritage within her contemporary surroundings.
Her latest album ‘Stand Aside’ released 2010, sees her alighted at a new destination, where traditional sounds and percussion interact with electronic beats, textures and beautifully layered strings. Heavily featured are, Indo-jazz clarinettist Arun Ghosh, who provides a melodic counterfoil to her soaring vocals and Dr Das, co-founder and original bassist of Asian Dub Foundation, who supplies his trademark heavyweight dub sound.
Kerieva regularly collaborates with other artists and producers. She works closely with Steve Chandra Savale (AKA Chandrasonic), she will be guest vocalist on the latest Asian Dub Foundation album, due for release early 2011.

Hey people here are some awesome pics taken last week at RichMix, where Shri, Bandish Projekt, Last Mango in Paris, Sanchita Farruque, Lord Kimo and Bobby Friction graced us with their presence.
I bombed it down the motorway from Birmingham to London and caught the last 50 mins of it. I was disappointed with the turn out.
I get emails and facebook messages from so many people. Sanj, let me know when the next gig is. Sanj the music is awesome where can I see it live? Well there are people out there holding these gigs and people just don’t turn up.
What’s with that? There is a lot of hard work and effort that goes into staging even a small gig. This is a chance for fans to support the artist so they continue to make new music that will push boundaries.
I cannot stress the importance of fan support. Its crucial.
Please do make the effort to attend!
