Sachal Vasandani & Romain Collin (USA)

website, facebook, instagram, twitter, youtube, soundcloud
Rooted in jazz, Sachal Vasandani is known for his singular voice, with a tone and unique phrasing that mark him as one of today’s most compelling artists.
On his current album he is accompanied by French/NYC pianist Romain Collin. The album originated from a shared desire to create after months in isolation in spring 2020. The project intimately reworks well-known music by Bob Dylan, Nick Drake, Lennon/McCartney, and other outstanding songwriters, alongside “spellbinding sensitive originals that are uniquely expressed.”
“What is most remarkable about Vasandani’s music is his uncomplicated vocal style, which reminds the listener that expressions of pain, angst and loss are perhaps most impactful when you don’t make a big fuss about those emotions.” (Rolling Stone India)
New album “Still Life” due July 2022! (Edition Records)
