If it seems like all has gone a bit quiet for Black Sesame of late, that’s because she has been busy collaborating with other wonderful musicians, among them the beautiful Inga Liljeström. But in between shows she’s been busy writing, and a new album is on the horizon. Stay tuned!

For the month of April, Black Sesame’s song “Angel Songs” will be featured in 85 independent cinemas across the USA. Apparently, “Previous artists to be featured in the program include Jackson Browne, Tom Waits, James Taylor, Goo Goo Dolls, Joni Mitchell, Gram Parsons & Flying Burrito Brothers, Sia, ….” (Personally, I got as far as Tom Waits and my happiness was complete!)

The cinema playlist can be viewed on the Orsino Publicity website.

Le Caveau des Artistes
79, rue de Martyrs, métro Pigalle
8pm, 5 euros

This is a special concert with the whole European lineup. It’s been 8 months since we were all in the same city at the same time, so we’re all really looking forward to playing this gig. If you’re in Paris, make sure you come!


Some random pieces of news :

- Black Sesame now has a facebook page (I’ve been a bit slow to adopt, but I get there in the end).

- Black Sesame is also on Jango internet radio, where for three weeks in a row we have been among the winners of bonus play credits awarded to top-rating bands on the site. Let’s hope the trend continues!

- “Many” from “brink” was recently used in a French documentary called “Tous à poils” which aired on France4 six times in February.

It’s been nearly 18 months since Black Sesame moved to Europe – so it’s about time the website had a bit of a makeover too. Here it is!
