The BLACK HOUSE Sessions
Arno and Jason have rented a house a bit outside of Pai. The house is black – hence the name – you guessed it! Since there are so many musicians in Pai they invite some of them all the time to the house. They make some music videos and Arno posted them on facebook.
The interesting thing is the mix of different styles and ideas. I filmed a few of the videos. If you have time check them out here:
->Ramon & the Hot Gang de Pai – Chocolate Jesus
->Hot Club de Pai – Latcho Drom
->John Taney – Tennessee Whiskey
->Bamboo Tambourine – Belleville Rendezvous
->Saint James Infirmary
->Hot Club de Pai – Misrelu
There are MANY more videos up! Check out the music love!
