About the Album

This CD captures Wah!’s English songs in a live setting. Backed by a mostly acoustic band, WAH! sings as only she can – silky smooth and from the heart. The songs are intimate and revealing – some previously released, some new, all of them fresh in this performance of a lifetime. Sparsely sprinkled with light percussion, harmonium, rotating Leslie speakers, occasional back-up vocalists, and electric bass, the CD brings you on a journey of uplifting quietude.


“A warm and thought-provoking album, UNPLUGGED shows that even without ancient
mantras, Wah! definitely knows how to lift the spirit in a multitude of ways.”


The Story Behind Unplugged

In 2003, we were invited to play a live concert on Santa Fe Radio KSFR, based in Santa Fe Community College. They made a recording of the talk and the music and gave us a CD of the show. It sounded really good. But something was strange. It sounded really different than the CD Opium. In fact, it was obvious that the live WAH! band didn’t sound anything like Opium. We were having an impact with our acoustic instruments, and there was no recording our fans could buy that sounded like it.
