Across the Sina Spiderweb

I have been considering starting a "down the rabbit hole" thread for this musical artist (Sina Doering) and her collaborators. So I decided when I saw this most recent highly entertaining vid from her that I would go ahead and do so. I have mentioned a half dozen of her music vids on this board previously. She is a fantastic percussionist and has played with both rock bands and symphonies. I just adore this young lady, and hope you may find something in the variety of her collected works that you like too.

This was shot in one take. After a couple views I saw little things like the piano guy doing handstands, the bass drummer juggling his mallet high in the air, and the guys tossing a tambourine and ukelele off the staircase (to people waiting below to catch them).

Hey! (Sina and friends and all the instruments we could find)

re: Across the Sina Spiderweb
Over the past seven years Sina has recruited dozens of young talented musicians and singers to produce outstanding collaborations, much of it performed remotely and engineered by her father. The nationalities represented include Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, England, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Pakistan, Spain, Taiwan, Romania, Russia, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, and the United States (and U. S. Puerto Rico).

The variety of Sina's work includes every genre imaginable - Caberet, Jazz, Blues, Salsa, Rock, Soul, Funk, Metal, Rap, Instrumental, Symphonic, Progressive, Ethereal, and even Elvish? - so if you like any kind of music at all there should be some things in her collected work that you will appreciate.

Most of the songs are covers, but many are originals written by the either the performers themselves or by Mike and Rick (Sina's dad and friend). Some of the originals are available on streaming services.

Singer Moriah Formica is from the USA. The guy playing bass, Abel Lovac, and his two brothers used to noodle around with Sina in her basement until they were signed by a German record label and could no longer contractually do so.

re: Across the Sina Spiderweb
Sina considers herself a percussionist, but also composes drum tracks, sings in English and German and plays guitar, bass, and piano on some tracks. When she decided to learn to play bass guitar, she posted a bass cover Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean" within only three weeks, with her little sister Milena accompanying her on the drums. In one of her videos Sina plays 12 different instruments.

Here Sina plays bass, and her friend Chiara Kilchling (Germany) and their doppelgangers harmonize.

re: Across the Sina Spiderweb
Since she has posted hundreds of drum cover on her channel, it can be difficult to search through them all and find the original compositions and cover gems.

This astounding composition and performance on ukelele and guitar is by Feng E (Taiwan), 12 years old, accompanied by Kai Petite (Japan):

And now for something completely different. Sina has played in a couple of German rock bands, including "The Gas" (The Guess) and this one, Sticky Hickey. A little funky:

re: Across the Sina Spiderweb
In many cases I have through Sina discovered classic rock music that I really should have heard before, but there were just some bands I wasn't into. Some of the covers sung by female singers just seem more pleasing to my ears than the original male artists. Love this one, first heard here, from singer Vienna D'Amato Hall (Canada):

There will be more to come but it's getting late, so for now I leave you all with a little "symbol" of my appreciation for her talent and sense of humor:

See what I did there? Symbol?

re: Across the Sina Spiderweb
Today's Sina Collaborators of the Day are singer Victoria Knight, from Australia, and guitarist Andrei Cerbu of Romania, both 14-year-olds at the making of this video. Like many or maybe most of the performers, they have their own bands and projects, YouTube channels and other social media.



Her band, "Victoria K", released an original album of "symphonic metal" to positive reviews, and is presently dealing with some Covid-related cancellations while on tour around Australia. I've enjoyed some of her newer music, but will likely consider this her masterpiece. Smooth and sultry vocals in a bluesy tribute to Elvis, accompanied by very excellent work by Andrei on guitars and Sina on drums and backup vocals:

Foreplay/Longtime and Radar Love are the two I go back to most often. Just a joy to watch.

re: Across the Sina Spiderweb
I've never tried to listen to all of her covers but have watched and listened to some of those I knew had great drum parts. Radar Love was one, and she also did some Who covers including Pinball Wizard, Won't Get Fooled Again, and a medley of Overture, It's A Boy, 1921, and Amazing Journey that bring the drum performances to the forefront. If you appreciate unusual style in percussion, give those a watch. She was interviewed for a documentary on drumming to talk about Keith Moon's style and demonstrate it when she was about 17.

Also, in listening to any of her stuff, headphones or a good sound system is a must. The audio editing by her dad is usually very well done. It amazes me that people can often do better sound in their homes now than in recording studios back in the day.

TGIF!

This inspiring instrumental is one of my favorites to get me up and moving when I have things to do, leading off my Sina instrumental set list.

Composed and performed by guitar virtuoso Andres Marzzucco (Argentina):

re: Across the Sina Spiderweb
The Dubai Opera in United Arab Emirates solicited auditions for an opening act, and out of more than 800 entries by persons of all ages the winner chosen was 12-year-old Emily Linge ("Lin ga", it's a Norwegian name). As a citizen born and raised there, she gets an oil royalty check from the government, which has to import construction and other menial workers from other countries.



Her voice is maturing into one of the purest I have heard, and she also sings in Norwegian and Spanish. She plays guitar and piano quite well for her age and is now composing original songs. She also seems to have an unlimited wardrobe of designer clothing. Adorable, talented and $elf $ufficient financially - teenage me would be trying to stow away on an Emirates flight.

Of Norwegian and English heritage, Emily has an affinity for the band "A-ha" and the Beatles. I have a playlist of more than 40 of her performances. The more I listen to this one, the more I appreciate the vocal arrangement by Chiara and the lush instrumentation by Mike and Rick:

re: Across the Sina Spiderweb
Again, now something completely different. Collaborator Juna Serita ("The Princess of Funk") is another who is deserving of her own thread. A very talented bass guitarist from Japan, she creates some fantastic original compositions. Now living and working in the USA, her former jazz group in Tokyo includes several musicians who have their own albums available. Here featuring Juna, with Shinobu Kawashima on Shamisen and Aria Shinbo on Shinobue. The group sometimes also includes gorgeous sax star Harumo Arai. I like how Sina dresses the part, as she sometimes does when not wearing her usual jeans and Chuckies.

I got the fever, yellow. And the only prescription is more talented and beautiful Japanese girls.

re: Across the Sina Spiderweb
Top 40 and Classic Rock radio does absolutely nothing for me these days. I feel as though I've heard the original versions of many songs a thousand times and just tune them out. But I sometimes really enjoy hearing a cover or "unplugged" version with just guitar or piano.

Sina's dad, Mike Wilbury (Doering), was in a Beatles tribute band and four international tours of "Beatlemania" and the like, performing in the character of George Harrison. Because of his German last name, a producer suggested he perform under a more Anglicized nom de music and he has used Wilbury for his professional moniker since. Mike and Rick Benbow add excellent keyboards, guitar and bass work to this wonderful performance of a classic Harrison song, as re-arranged by Sir Paul McCartney and performed at the Concert For George on the first anniversary of his death November 29, 2002. Ukelele and vocals by Avonlea Shea Martin, then a 16-year-old from Southern California. Avonlea was a final judges' cut in auditions for America's Got Talent and is signed to Atlantic Records.

Sina's instrumentals are awesome. She was asked to play on this title track for a German musical play, Das Zauberschloss (The Magic Castle), composed by Uwe Mueller.

Cool Jazz with jazz master professionals Ernie Griffin on piano and Wolfgang "Bolle" Diekmann on bass. This composition was also Fraulein Sina's final exam when she studied under them at the Drummers Institute. She flawlessly performs to difficult rhythms and switches in time signatures.
