Robert "Robi" Svärd
"Pa'ki pa'ka"


“If you want, I´ll sing on this track, Robi” This comment was made by Granada based flamenco singer Alfredo Tejada on a video of Sweden based guitarist Robert Svärd and led to this unique album, recorded together with Miguel “El Cheyenne” in Granada at the legendary FJR Estudios de grabación.

"Heads Up"


Annique’s voice is for the inner ear and open heart, a soul singer’s instrument carrying the freight of past greats while trailing its own strong colours. Growing up in Rainham, Essex, Annique travelled out on the strength of her voice, studying at the Academy of Contemporary Music before working with the likes of The Streets and Gorillaz, drum’n’bass outfit Step 13 and then teaming up with Koby Israelite at his south London studio for a series of informal writing sessions that have become Heads Up.
