Arhai at Rich Mix With Secret Archives of the Vatican

496364652-1Although not a huge fan of the world music electronica genre (blame Buddha Bar in the 00s) some bands just get it right. Secret Archives first sent us their CD in 2006 (pre-Soundcloud in the Myspace era). We’re excited then to see them playing this Saturday at Shoreditch’s Rich Mix with Arhai who themselves have a very broad palette. We’ve just listened to Arhai’s new album Eastern Roads, the second release by the Arhai duo. Think breathy Celtic folk vocals over a variety of strings and sparse beats. With the occasional bass line and a sometimes very 90s-sounding keys.
