The muggy midsummer air characteristic of Cincinnati, along with a seemingly apocalyptic amount of thunderstorms, are not cramping anyone’s style at Ambient Studios. Artists have been taking refuge from the heat and the rain to record some decidedly cool music, including the star of last month’s post, Brazilian double-threat Lakinni. The musician and model has formed a new musical act called Stigma de Lis and is currently collaborating with Blues great Noah Wotherspoon on a track titled ‘Don’t Make Me Cry.’ The uber-talented Wotherspoon won first place in last year’s Cincinnati Blues Challenge and was a finalist in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis. You can, and should, check him out here. And while I’m being bossy, make sure to stay tuned to hear what Lakinni, Stigma de Lis and Noah have cooked up!
