The Saturday Morning Canasta Club: Misery Marmalade and Other Spanish Jams

The Saturday Morning Canasta Club is a loose collective that is part of the London based community Abubilla Music. You might call them the house band, with a core group and people hopping on and off as they see fit. Their second album is called Misery Marmalade and Other Spanish Jams, inspired by their extended stays in Spain. Their music can be labeled as poppy rock folk, with some forays into hip-hop and beatboxing. It may sound as "free-for-all" grab bag of songs at first, but all songs share the fun of a DIY approach that simmers through lick and chord. It's like being invited to a mad tea party with music, with the musicians pulling rabbits out of their instruments.

The band is currently working on a new album entitled If I Were a Little Birdie.

All profits go to Kenya:

We are working with Ketebul Music in Kenya to raise funds for a couple of mobile recording studios and to train studio engineers, to ensure that village music is preserved and promoted. Please check out the details of this project and get involved – we need money and volunteers, with a more urgent need for the former to be frank. All profits from our first three CDs will go to this project, so buy our music and tell your friends about it."
