BoomlaBoomla mixes a smooth combination of funk and soul woven with groove creating music that makes you move. One word to describe Boomlas music is phenomenal. In wisdom, this music has taken away from the modern beat and created a new exciting combination that Boomla is being rewarded by with sell-out gigs.
Boomla is made up of two artists, both from Melbourne, Ben (sax, clarinet and percussion) and Syrene (lead vocals) who take the stage with an eight piece band as well as dancers and costumes that covers the audience with a blanket of awe, releasing their art, Ben and Syrene, send all listening on a floating dance.
Boomla worked with a twelve piece band for their album From Brasil to Cyrene which is soon to be released, containing the track Brain.
Brain is set somewhere between the real-floor and the surreal. You are able to move and be encapsulated in a scene of light, moves and challengingly different music that delights the ears for an entire songs.
The name Boomla apparently comes from Boom being the sound of a drum and la the sound of voice, that stunning and earth-shatteringly-wonderful voice that gives the instrumental soul, is Syrene. Syrene who needs to be distinguished for her soothing voice is the head vocalist for Boomla and her sensational onstage presence brightens a room, along with bright costumes and wonderfully produced harmonising music. We have Ben to thank for that music.
Ben provides the harmonising music that is evident in Boomla recordings, it is clear that Ben was born to play music to us; he supplies the magnificent instrumentals rewarding Syrenes voice. Bens rhythm is the reason you want to feel the melody and cant help but sway in unison.
Although delightfully different from the mainstream, Boomlas tracks are already being mixed by well-known internationally DJs, Kosheen remixed Mozart Would and John Course and Mr. Timothy who remixed Lone Rider. Soon youll find Boomla following you, through DJs, to your favourite dance locations.
Find one person that doesnt move whilst listening to these beats and Ill be impressed. Seriously watch out for Boomla! The only advice that I can provide to you is, to catch on before everybody else does, or youll be left behind, way behind...
