SoSaLa…Sounds Beginning Before An Ending, Sounds Ending After A Beginning

SoSaLa will be performing at CA Music Room on Wednesday evening, December 20, 2017. They will playing songs from their CD Nu World Trash as well as new material.

SoSaLa is led by saxophonist and vocalist Sohrab Saadat Ladjevardi. Their music blends melancholic melodies Ladjevardi’s native Iran with improvisation, lo-fi electronics, and diverse instrumentation to create an ambient and psychedelic take on World music.

Bill Friskics-Warren of The Washington Post wrote:

Freedom, as in civil liberties and free jazz, is the word that best captures “Nu World Trash,” the irrepressible debut by SoSaLa, the intercontinental collective led by Iranian saxophonist and activist Sohrab Saadat Ladjevardi. Boasting a formidable musical résumé, Ladjevardi has worked with everyone from Malian pop star Salif Keita to Ornette Coleman and Bachir Attar of Morocco’s Master Musicians of Jajouka.
