I thought I had lost these pictures ages ago, but as I was cleaning out an old drawer today I came across a flash drive that still had them. In August, 2003, my friend Mike Eisenberg helped bring Samla to Chicago. The lineup consisted of Lars Hollmer (RIP), Coste Apetrea, Lars Krantz, and Tatsuya Yoshida.
I believe that this was Samla’s first ever U.S. appearance.
These photos are raw and unprocessed aside from some cropping and downsizing.
