The View From Here #3: Mei Saraswati Band

Sunday 11th January / posted by Chris Wheeldon

RTRFM's The View From Here film series continues in 2015 with the release of episode three, which features the honeyed vocals and hypnotic world beats of Mei Saraswati Band.

Filmed at Perth's Yo Yo Studios, The View From Here's latest instalment captures a rare performance from the nine-piece band, which has only performed live a handful of times to date.

The band ran through three songs - Swamp Gospel, Dash and Power in the Soul - two of which appear on Saraswati's 2013 release, Hypermeditations.

Saraswati has gained a loyal fan base, both within the Perth music scene and beyond, following several years performing and recording as a solo artist. This most current incarnation of her unique musical vision has been hotly anticipated by many.

Saraswati's music is celestial, futuristic, soulful and earthy all at the same time, encompassing RnB influences and layered patterns of melody, awash with cosmic synths.
