Thanks to the free local music mag, L.A. Record for introducing me to the magnificent Mia Doi Todd. Since reading the article, I’ve been hooked on her captivating, ethereal, globally-influenced sound. Her voice is heavy and soothing. It’s the kind of music that Sade blesses us with–a mystical vibe that nudges your ears a bit beyond their standard reference of what sounds and feels like good music.

A great big thanks also to the City of Los Angeles for allowing me to see Mia Doi Todd perform for free (!) at MacArthur Park. Here’s a clip of the band’s set:
