Sugarcane’s hybrid sound updates vintage bossa nova and calypso for twenty-first century London. With one British parent and one from the Caribbean, it’s not surprising that Robin French’s music is a post-Colonial jumble. Acoustic backyard sambas meet French chansons, Bahian drumming melds with Trinidadian steel pan, an old drum machine, and a toy melodica.
Robin French honed his songwriting craft as the former bassist of Mr. Hudson and the Library, who supported such heavyweights as Amy Winehouse, The Police and Kanye West. In the years after, Robin has proved his talent has no bounds, garnering huge success as a scriptwriter – creating and writing the award winning BBC1/Netflix sitcom Cuckoo and writing plays for The Royal Court, the RSC and The National.
