Criss crossing the world from India to Portugal to South Africa, absorbing all that comes her way, poet and singer Bajka (pronounced Bai-Kah) brings in her work the world itself. Diving into dark and psychedelic Jazz, collecting experiences in various Electronic, Chill-out and Hip-Hop projects, she delivers a multi-influenced, unique mixture of sound.
Aside from her notable contributions to albums from Radio Citizen, Bonobo, Ancient Astronauts, Beanfield and others; her solo work, inclusive of a 7″ and 12″ for Jazzman, delivers the experimental and intriguing. Enigmatic and seductively soulful, she mesmerizes with her unique vocal qualities.
Finally, she treats us to her debut full-length titled In Wonderland. The album was derived from The Hunting of the Snark (An Agony in 8 Fits), a book of poems written by Lewis Carroll. With lyrics lifted directly from the text and laid down over lush jazzy beats, the overall theme is a metaphor for the subconscious search for subjective happiness in life.
Definitely pick this gem up along with the Escape from Wonderland set of remixes, and dig up her previous tracks if you’ve never heard them. One listen to her voice and you’ll surely never forget that unmistakably beautiful sound.
