Jaggery / Walter Sickert and the Army of Broken Toys
Jaggery is an experimental art-rock collective who work the dark edge of a genre-defying musical style. Fronted by Boston-based singer/songstress Mali Sastri, whose training in the expressive arts discipline Voice Movement Therapy is evident in her global-sized voice. The band suggests a classical, organic, avant-jazz-oriented Cocteau Twins or a "white witch" counter to the haunting Diamanda Galas. Mali's voice can be a leaf floating in the breezeand then become an Earth-shaking, Everest-sized volcano.
Walter Sickert & the Army of Broken Toys are a musical alchemy, fingering the rabbit hole of performance art. With their toys and voices they create a death-folk, steamcrunk, organic-industrial experience. At the moment Walter Sickert and the Army of Broken Toys are touring throughout the world. Their music has appeared on international and American radio as well as in independent films and on television.
