TEA has just finished producing the new album by keyboard legend Brian Auger
, titled Language of the Heart.
From Six Degrees Records President Bob Duskis:
A few months ago I received through the magic of E mail, the latest album from a duo who call themselves TEA. Mixing soul, house and jazz with African flavors, Tea is the brainchild of guitarist Franck Balloffet, from Lyon, France, and Southern California drummer/keyboardist Phil Bunch. Franck & Phil first met as members of Los Angeles’ premier African band, Bateke Beat, which featured multi-instrumentalist Fidel Bateke, formerly of Fela Kuti’s ensemble from Nigeria. The group's second record, Dreams, rises to the challenge of fusing lots of different influences while maintaining a distinct personality all its own
