The Sound of Now

Living life out loud, and shooting straight from the hip of the on-trend Parisian jazz and pop scene, Or-Sha are purpose built to show us all how to have a good time. A thrilling fusion of influences – think Erykah Badu, Hiatus Kaiyote and Thundercat – and inspired by the maths of the Ancient Pharaohs, NSA cryptograms and Swedish digital pirates, Or-Sha are the perfect band to blend innovation and tradition among the young and old vines of Clos Marey-Monge. With intense and complex musical rhythms from Vincent Tortiller on drums, and Kevin Haccoun on bass forming a thundering rhythm foundation, it’s down to Lucile Chriqui’s melodically sweet and deep harmonies to sync with Hippolyte Housset’s keys and Arthur Links’ smooth guitar lines. It’s a beautiful noise. Or-Sha is tipped for great things in 2017 with the release of its first EP. Check out “Black Coffee” or “Trouble and Strife” on SoundCloud and then come discover them live at Rootstock. Satisfaction guaranteed.
