Coda -‘Rocking Horse’
Coda sounds like they came from a place I’ve never been, some eastern European country I haven’t travelled yet. A lot of people compare their music to gypsy music, I wouldn’t know if this is true because I have never met an actual gypsy or done much research into the culture. There are seven members of this band, and they all just love to dress up in costumes on stage and put on a real big event, often featuring showgirls, aerialists and projections. In fact, I would say that the visual aspect of this band defines and lifts their image from mere world music contenders to almost performance art level. I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re touring with Cirque du Soleil sometime. They are regulars performers in all sorts of music festivals around the world so it shouldn’t be hard to catch them live. The new album Calling Mission Mu is out soon.
