Song of the Day #3,922: ‘Da’ – Nil Lara

Nil Lara is a Miami musician who my wife and I saw live a few times back in the 90s. His early self-released albums and EPs were excellent.

Lara signed with a major label in 1995, releasing a self-titled album that collected his best work in more polished (and less effective, IMO) form. He didn’t put out another album until 2004’s Da, on which today’s SOTD is the opening track.

In the 14 years since, Lara has kept active in the local music scenes. According to his frequently updated Facebook page, he’s playing a show in Coral Gables on April 12. He also released his first album in 13 years, titled 2018, a little more than a year ago.

Thanks, Random iTunes Fairy, for the blast from the past.

    You should go to his show for old times sake.
