The Mummer's extended play "Mink Hollow Road" was released in January 2011, under Big Bass Drum record label. The EP features six songs: "Call Me a Rainbow," "Fade Away," "Driving Home," "Cherry Heart," "Your Voice" and "Stuck in the Middle." The EP was released after the death of a member of the group, Mark Horwood. Lead singer of the group, Raissa Khan-Panni, shared with The Guardian that under the influence of Horwood's death, she started to write personal and direct lyrics and that the music could have turned out edgy and dark. But instead, she wrote song that were more ornate and escapist, saying that the ghost of Horwood guided her and that Horwood could have written the stuff they released in the EP.
The Mummers are an English band centered on London-born singer/songwriter Raissa Khan-Panni, producer/writer Paul Sandrone, co-producer/manager Alastair Cunningham and composer Mark Horwood, before he committed suicide in September 2009. Raissa Khan-Panni is of English, Chinese, Indian and Mexican descent. She was raised in the South London district of West Norwood. She studied classical music, learning the piano and then oboe as a child. The Mummers released their well-received debut album "Tale to Tell" in April 2009, but tragedy struck five months later when Horwood was found hanged at his parents' home.Learn more about Art & Literature
