CHOON OF THE DAY: "Подих" - Jamala (Джамала)
My fellow blogging muso friend Piotrek from No Snobs Allowed described Jamala as Ukraine's answer to Jessie Ware. The silky smooth soulful vibes of the song completely confirm this accurate description. I don't know an awful lot about this Ukrainian singer but what I know is that "Подих", which I believe means "Breath", seduces its listener with understated, funky groove, passionate vocal harmonies and charmingly summery production. Sometimes the simplest ideas are the most effective ones. On the quiet side but undeniably enchanting!
