Suzanne Santo: “Mercy”

By: Jack Anderson

If you know L.A. roots duo HoneyHoney or have watched shows like Medium and Without a Trace then you’re already acquainted with the talent bestowed in singer Suzanne Santo.

That specific combo of acoustic and electronic, of modern and traditional first came about with the formation of Nihiloxica half a decade back, when UK producers Spooky-J and pq linked up with Nilotika Cultural Ensemble members Isa, Sally, […]
