Vimala Rowe and John Etheridge
Legendary guitarist John Etheridge (Soft Machine, Stephane Grappelli, John Williams) joins forces with sensational vocal star Vimala Rowe.
John Etheridge is one of a handful of players who can claim to have helped shape the character of modern jazz guitar. He's been described by fellow fretsman Pat Metheny as 'one of the best guitarists in the world'.
Vimala Rowe's enthralling style is a blend of jazz sophistication and swing, soulful passion and a hint of Indian exoticism. An exemplary jazz singer, she has a unique style that's further enhanced by her past training in classical Hindustani vocals.
Together, they weave a magical spell, effortlessly travelling musically from India to Africa, the Middle East and the USA.
Their album, Out of the Sky, was elected in the Top Ten critic’s choice of album of the year 2016 in both the Guardian and the Sunday Times.
