Celebrated Composer and Bassist Dave Manington is someone we’ve featured before on Backseat Mafia, and we’re delighted to be able to premiere the video for his new track ’Fones’, a collaboration with our very own Athens – London based jazz and folk singer Lara Eidi.
Using words by the revered Greek poet Constantine P Cavafys, the song is sung in its original Greek, and has this breathless, almost anxious backing – brooding basslines, guitar interjections and a multitude of percussion sprawling all over the track. Lara Eidi’s beautiful and at times ethereal vocals swooning over the top immediately lgrabs your attention.
Check it out here, crafted by Lara and stock footage from a mesmerising Sufi Dance.
