Broken Record #41
The Belly of Paris are based in Bahrain but their roots are sprawled all over the place. Formed by ex-By Toutatis frontman Daniel Cochran, the band consists of pianist Yasmin Sharabi (Palestine), Szabolcs Nigo (Hungary) on trumpet, drummer Sumit Sharma (India), bassist Carlos Villarroel (Argentina) and Robert Prest (England) on drums. The Belly of Paris are, as you'd imagine. quite the cultural hotpot, part Jazz, part folk and part Cantina Band, it's probably best to just listen for yourself. The band have just released a new single which you can find below, and their debut album is due early next year. To celebrate all this exciting stuff Daniel Cochran spoke to us about his record collection for the latest in our Broken Record series.
