Martin Case and Love & Light

Love and Light was formed to create a sensuous, rhythmic ensemble that offers beautiful music. Mixing ethnic instrumentation, dual saxophones, and electronica with a cutting-edge production style, Martin Case with Love and Light have created a distinct ethno-modern sound that is both sophisticated and danceable.

The composer for Love and Light, Martin Case, wanted to create an ensemble that would honor the rhythms of the past while keeping it relevant to today, to create a held sonic space for meditation, dancing, and pure enjoyment.

They encouraged women to dress for success in the workplace and aimed to turn women into creators not shoppers.
