Slovo

Biography

Slovo began in the mind and then the South London studio of Faithless guitarist Dave Randall (to view Dave's discography click here). In 2002 he brought together Iceland's Emiliana Torrini, West Africa's Maezah, England's Kirsty Hawkshaw, the urban poems of AD, the drums of Max Roach, the voice of Charlie Chaplin and the words of Woody Guthrie. Entitled 'nommo', Slovo's debut album raised questions about the world and was in the words of The Sunday Times, 'a wonderful album that is both stridently polemical and determinedly celebratory.'

Dave Randall then put together the Slovo live band with singer Andrea Britton, bass player Lucy Shaw, percussionist Sudha Kheterpal, guitarist and keyboard player Andrew Phillips, dancer Adura Onashile and drummer Ami Rothenberg.

Slovo toured extensively in Europe in 2003 and 2004 playing at all the major European festivals and supporting Lamb and Damien Rice in the UK.

In 2005 Dave Randall returned to guitar playing duties with his friends Faithless, but also began work on Slovo's second album 'Todo Cambia'. The new album features the vocal talents of Andrea Britton and UK hip-hop MC Bobby Whiskers among others. It will be released later this year.
