Introducing "LAL MERI"....A Techno Pop Fusion Band
If you split up Lal Meri into Nancy Kaye, Ireesh Lal, and Carmen Rizzo, you get 3 different artists with a range of styles that don't really need proper introductions. There talent has been combined to make a fantastic new electronic pop group with lots of promise. Their self-titled debut album highly recommended for those of you who dig loungey pop, good synthy vibes and beats. It's a hint of Zero 7, positivity, Brazilian girls etc. Satnam Ramgotra on the Tabla behind Nancy on the videos. So Dope ;)
Lal Meri takes its name from an ancient Sufi folk song, part of a mystical tradition that helped to expand the reach of Islam around the world in centuries past. Ecstatic, transcendental Sufi art forms were used to draw people in through direct experience, bypassing dogma and authoritarianism. And, in a sense, that's just what this unusual trio is all about — unifying listeners of different cultures, beliefs and aesthetics with an irresistibly seductive sound.
They produce a seductive mix of music meant to heal the human spirit. The LA-based trio based their name on a Hindi term that encourages people to smile through good times and bad and will bring those positive vibes to Morning Becomes Eclectic.
Very soulful and spiritual track “Dreams of 18” moves one to different world.
Lal Meri feat. Carmen Rizzo - Bad Things (Morgan Page Clean Remix) Amazing Remix!!
“Give your Light”…Beautiful song with great sync and tune.
Very Nice track “Take me as I am” good experiment of sounds with instrumentation.
Eastern mysticism and pop music have been cross-pollinating since at least The classic band Beatles. In recent years, dance-friendly club mixes rich with sounds from India, Iran and the Arab world have become a cottage industry. Lal Meri certainly draws from globalista techno-pop, but Nancy Kaye's languid vocals, mostly in English, become a powerful focus. Poetry and form are as important here as atmosphere and groove.
Lal Meri is the work of three self-described "headstrong producers," who come together under the potentially insipid banner of, "Why can't we be together as one?" It's an endeavor that risks dissolving into a well-meaning muddle. Layers of droning vocals and jangling strings swirl together within grooves that range from a lazy lope to lashing club beats. But the best songs always coalesce around Kaye's charismatic vocals.
For all the high concept and technical finesse here, these are essentially pop songs, with verses, choruses and elegant vocal hooks — not so far from The Beatles after all.
