San Francisco's musical nomads Rupa & the April Fishes hold up a carnival mirror to life and present a warped, humorous and occasionally disquieting reflection. Sequestered beneath Rupa's infectious and captivating melodies are thought-provoking themes that address life, love, art, death and the real and artificial divisions that keep us apart. Specialists in crossing borders and building bridges, they effortlessly blur the boundaries of genre & geography to create a sound Time Out has called "global agit-pop".
French, Latin and any number of gypsy-adjacent influences course through their mix with a pleasantly "San Franciscan" kind of flourish. Watching them perform is a little like riding with the top down in a double-decker bus, careening through seven or eight crowded ethnic neighborhoods, each one in the middle of a massive street party. -- Los Angeles Times, October 17, 2008See all Editorial Reviews
