A French tranny cranking tunes out of Berlin- burlesque, gospel, blues, rockabilly- what else? This is up there with Rocky Horror, Elton John, Freddy Mercury, transcending genre and creating something new and timeless. This is fantastic music, and nobody straight and narrow could have made it.
An icon of the Berlin underground, Shambhu Leroux is a stonking mama with a voice like velvet thunder, with a penetrating vocal power and deep, soulful ferocity that sends seismic waves of emotion straight through the crowd. Previously with the Sin City Circus Ladies, a notorious psychobilly band, she floored crowds when opening for The Queens of the Stone Age and The Dwarves. In Shambhu and the True Love Hearts, she filled crowds with her lush fire and penetrating soul. And now…she's ready to turn it loose.
