Rupa and the April Fishes
"While the music of Rupa & the April Fishes defies categorization, their intimate sound combined with a broad appeal has earned them comparisons to everyone from Manu Chao, Pink Martini and Lhasa to Beirut, Dengue Fever, Gogol Bordello and Keren Ann. Rupa’s nomadic upbringing has led her to write songs in a multitude of languages, including French, Spanish, Hindi and English."
"Blending indie rock sensibilties, retro sounds, and smart lyrics, Washington, DC songwriter Sarah Azzara’s (yes, it rhymes) original style was hailed by critic Mark Jenkins as “effervescent,” and “classic, but not antique.” Spanning multiple rock and pop genres, her unique songs reflect common dilemmas or weave conversational stories, using uncommonly sophisticated lyrics and contagious hooks.
