Drawing influences from Bon Iver, Avett Brothers and David Bazan, George Kamel effectively unites the ethereal and earthly using an impressive array of folk instrumentation, while guiding the listener through haunting seasons of beauty and pain.
As a part of our Suite 268 series, Kamel offered us a solo version of Taylor Swift’s “Safe & Sound” (featuring The Civil Wars). Watch this intimate little scene from our Studio B in the live video above.
Be sure to stay updated with all of Suite 268′s latest video from Indaba Music HQ or the Indaba loft here.
Everyday, we’re blown away by the amazing music our community of musicians are creating on Indaba Music. Needless to say, we weren’t surprised to watch this gem from Indaba member, Jus Bus.
“BLASTING AWAY,” featuring J.nation, Drastic of Them Island Boyz and LogiQ Pryce, was directed by Kenny Frankland with 2D Animation by Mark Paterson. It’s a very special animated video about three friends exploring the universe: a troll, a faun and a goblin. These creatures become sick of the modern world and decide to leave the earth in search of new lifeforms to terrorize…
Justin Nation (known to us Indabans as “Jus Bus”) and his friends deliver an amazing song that fuses Hip-Hop, Pop and maintains a strong Caribbean influence. As a whole, it stands for Freedom and Equality of all Human and Extraterrestrial races. Enjoy!
Last week we had the pleasure of recording The Royal Concept at Suite 268. This insanely catchy indie-pop band from Stockholm played us through their newly released EP including hit tracks like “Gimme Twice” and “Goldrushed.”
In addition to their electronic hits, they performed their cover of The Beatles “Dont Let Me Down” and gave us an exclusive interview about becoming a band and creating their debut album.
The Royal Concept EP is available now and you can catch the rest of our session on our Suite 268 youtube channel. Get your dancing shoes on and D-D-Dance!
Austin recently hosted Rock n Roll Hall of Famer Bootsy Collins and his all-star 13-piece band. And what a night it was!
The evening started with Mrs. Patti Collins and the Bootsy Girls greeting the crowd spreading the importance of empowering women of all ages. Encouraging and supporting one another in ways they can relate, you can show your support for women all over the world by becoming a Bootsy Girl yourself. Chow Meow!
Now, Indaba Music is hosting the first EVER Annual Bootsy Girl Party at Indaba HQ this Sunday at 7pm! If you’re an Indaba lady and want to join the fun, be sure to tweet to us at @indabamusic
