Rupa ( The April Fishes) November 8th
Lead singer Rupa was born to Indian parents in San Francisco and raised in the U.S.,Indian, and the south of France. Rupa & The April Fishes are one of the hottest musical acts to come out of San Francisco in the several years. The band which takes his name from the French version of April Fool’s Day is the foremost exponent of a style which cross all music boundaries. Rupas is a practicing physician by day a singer by night..She draws comparaisons to everyone from Regina Spektor,Manu Chao to Tom Wait, but singer, songwriter and performer Rupa has a sound all her own.Whether singing in French, Spanish, English,Romany,Hindi or Trotzil, she echoes the roots of all the music she grew up listening to.The band’s latest release “Build” is the sum of all her influences. She will be my guest on Africamix November 8. Tune in to hear her story.
