Agama is the music project and alter ego of Singer, Composer, Producer and multi instrumentalist Cassandra Gurling. Born and raised in Birmingham and now based in London, Cassandra is a classically trained vocalist and choir director. Her sound is classic yet contemporary, a dense mix of styles in which her operatic and earthy voice is simultaneously rooted and floating above - soulful, jazzy, slightly psychedelic with touches of electronics and a dramatic twist. Think a mix of Rotary Connection and Four Hero with a touch of musical theatre and you'll be approaching the range and depth of these 4 amazingly fully-formed, exploratory songs. This rare fusion of musical and cultural influences within a socio-political context mirrors Cassandra’s mixed Anglo-Jamaican upbringing, where she learned to sing within the Church and Musical Theatre schools in multi-cultural Birmingham. Safe in Noise is Agama's debut release and comes courtesy of The state51 Conspiracy.
