Join Jacqueline Foreman as she welcomes the amazingly talented Sparlha Swa to the show LIVE! The genre-splitting vocals and lyrically-potent songwriting of this rising artist offer us an alternative music that is truly honest and evocatively so; sparse, powerful and to the point. Sparlha Swa is a velveteen clash of impeccable vocals and haunting modal chords. She sings from the place where sounds meets spirit, a soundtrack for the seeker of sounds. Born in the Caribbean, she has lived in 8 states and 3 countries and pulls her music and lyrics from a far wider net of influence. Her music will call to mind Sade, Billie Holiday, Joni Mitchell, Astrud Gilberto, Ravi Shankar, and Miriam Makeba.
