New Track: Chico Mann – “Light of Love” ft. Alecia Chakour

 

Definitely don’t hear too much soulful Hanukkah music during the holiday season, whereas a variety of Christmas music always seems to be in abundance – so, this is refreshing. Chico Mann invited our lovely gal Alecia Chakour to lend her vocals for the warm and cozy new tune, “Light of Love.” Got us dreaming of candlelight, fireplaces, and hot chocolate on this Thursday afternoon.

Also, for those unfamiliar with Alecia, please get to knowing and be sure to check her out on December 20 for a very special show. The night is going to be killer. Alecia shared with us:

“What makes this night even cooler is that the bands feature allstars from The Royal Family (Soulive, Lettuce), Daptone Records (Dap-Kings, Charles Bradley, Antibalas), David Byrne’s band and TV On the Radio. Basically, 20 of my favorite musicians in one tiny room.”

Oh, man does Rahsaan Patterson make us melt. Too much soulful grooviness in this live performance of “Easier Said Than Done” in Amsterdam. What is it about is voice that can’t do anything but make every single track hit material?! Swoon city.
