Tiessen and accompanied by a collaborative collective of artists, producers and engineers from Detroit (USA), Melbourne (Australia), Istanbul (Turkey), Bucharest (Romania), Toronto and Windsor (Canada).
“I am truly moved by the music. For me, Suada combines the best of two worlds—the global or "world music" realm and a beautiful dark ambiance and edge—with real flair and sensitivity.”
—Tristra Yeager (rock paper scissors)
