Bumcello :: Cyril Atef & Vincent Ségal

Bumcello & Co



"Leave no trace"

"Timeless yet of its time, it's a slow-burning build, there's nothing obvious or showy about the songs contained here.You might have to listen to this album twice to get it but once you have, guaranteed, you'll be listening to it again and again and at the risk of sounding cliched, it's an instant classic. Buy it - your grandchildren will be impressed."
Francesca Beard. [october 2004]
