Their love for American soulmusic started to reflect in 2000 when they collaborated with singers as N’Dambi, Carleen Anderson, Leon Ware, Michael Franti and Sandra st. Victor. Sandra initiated the Daughters of Soul; daughters of soullegends like Lalah Hathaway (daughter of Donny), Indira Kahn (daughter of Chaka), Simone (daughter of Nina Simone), Deniece Williams and Nona Hendryx. Accompanied by Liquid Spirits they toured all over the world.
Manuel Hugas (bass) and Wiboud Burkens (keyboards) produced exclusively for Lalah Hathaway a song for her album “Self Portrait” (released 2008). The four leadvocals give Liquid Spirits their unique sound, based on a layer of deep grooves: hiphop-soul tracks inspired by Tribe Called Quest and JayDee (“If You Don’t Love Me”, “No One”), sixties and seventies flavours influenced by Charles Stepney & Minnie Ripperton and Leon Ware (“Stepney”, “Music”, Melodies”) and contemporary soul (“Higher Ground”, “Say It Ain’t So”, “Sacred State of Mind”). Mastered in New York by Will Quinnell makes “Music” a unique one of a kind.
