From press release
Snow Angel featuring Gabby La La and Pamela Parker
October 28, 2011 | 6 p.m. | FREE | All Ages
@ Music Millennium, 3158 E Burnside St.
Gabby La La has been heralded as one of the most inspiring multi-instrumentalists (sitar, ukulele, accordion, theremin, voice) this side of the emerald city. She is a sitarist extraordinaire and Nintendo 8 Bit beat master.
One of the founding members of DAKAH Hip Hop Orchestra, La La went on to play for several years with Les Claypool as a member of his Fancy Band. Claypool also produced and released La La’s first album, Be Careful What You Wish For, on his record label. Gabby’s latest CD, I Know You Know I Know, is completely self produced and performed by La La, using sitar, ukulele, theremin, voice and Nintendo DS Lite.
Gabby La La is currently touring with her duo, Snow Angel, which features her on sitar, ukulele, accordion and voice, and Pamela Parker on keyboard and backing vocals. Snow Angel is La La's most personal and emotionally inspired project to date, and songs like ¬Å“This is Where We Go¬Â and ¬Å“You Rewind the Tape¬Â have already become theme songs in the band's lives. Invoking feelings of nostalgia and hopeful possibility, Snow Angel makes an impression that could melt the most cynical of hearts.
Gabby La La’s music is a mixture of indie-pop, folk, and North Indian classical music – her sound cannot be defined by any one genre and perhaps that is exactly what makes her so compelling to such a wide and varied audience. Since 2005, she has made waves not only in nightclubs and festivals, but also in the classroom and for friends, wherever she goes.
