Ay Portugal, La Compania
We’re pretty lucky in Melbourne to have access to musicians of this calibre. Although we’re about to lose Siobhan Stagg to the UK for a while, you can hear this Melbourne born virtuosic soprano on the latest disc from early music group, La Compania. When listening to this disc, the word that popped into my head was ‘groovy’. In every track there’s a terrific groove that gets your toe tapping, even on the more lyrical songs. This is a seriously good disc that is well worth repeated listens.
