Burlesque star Lola The Vamp is already renowned or pushing boundaries - her PhD in burlesque was the first to feature actual performance of the risque art. But just wait until you hear her debut single with Brisbane band, Desert Blues Cartel! It's a song reminiscent of both Nick Cave's murder ballad duets and the infamous recordings between Serge Gainsborough and Brigitte Bardot. In this fine tradition, Lola duets - entirely in French - with the masterful vocals of Robert Davis for an epic and sweeping orchestral ballad.
Ma Cherie is a collaboration with Desert Blues Cartel, whose sensual style has seen them travel Australia during their debut year in 2013. Like stumbling drunkenly into Wiemar Berlin, the Desert Blues Cartel transport you to a world of overt aural decadence, described by Time Off as 'oozing with swagger and style'. The duet was composed at the picturesque Shorncliffe Pier, a vintage seaside town just north of Brisbane, Australia.
It's available for a short time as a free download at www.desertbluescartel.com. You can see Lola sing and dance at the official launch from 6.30pm, Friday May 16th at Sandgate Town Hall, Brisbane, Australia. The launch is proudly presented at the very first of the Cardigan Bar Town Hall Sessions.
Burlesque Dancer Lola The Vamp is a living amalgam of vintage beauty. A true star cast in the mould of yesterday, has the figure of Brigitte Bardot and the face of Vivien Leigh.
