Hear the Fresh Handmade Sound Collective live tonight on Echoes
The name Fresh Handmade Sound Collective probably means nothing to you unless you’ve been to one of the Lush Cosmetic stores or Spas, but you should know the name of Simon Emmerson, a founding member of Afro Celt Sound System, still the defining exponents of 21st century world fusion. Recently, Emmerson connected with Lush to make Spa music that wasn’t spa music. Gathering a host of English, Indian, Irish and other musicians, including people in his Imagined Village project, he’s created a series of eclectic albums under the Fresh Handmade Sound moniker including the forthcoming A Hard Day’s Night Treatment, which takes Beatles songs from across their career and spins them into dreamy folk and global improvisations. We got a trio version of the collective in the Echoes living room with Simon Emmerson on guitar, sitarist Sheema Mukherjee and keyboardist Simon Richmond. They rework some Beatles tunes and play some original compositions live tonight on Echoes. So light some candles, lay down and drift off the the Fresh Handmade Sound Collective tonight on Echoes.
