Carla will be returning to the US for just over a month in early May before she heads to Mauritania for another round of Peace Corps service. You can catch her while she’s here at these New-York-area performances:
Saturday, May 16th at 9pm at Cubbyhole Coffeehouse in Poughkeepsie, NY

Carla’s music is featured in a new iMix on iTunes called “Relax, Inspire: music for unwinding, reconnecting, and reflecting, featuring some of the best voices in female folk.” Other artists in the mix are Laura Nyro, Indigo Girls, Kate Chadbourne, Suzanne Vega, Lucy Kaplansky, and Kris Delmhorst.

Returning to Azerbaijan this month, Carla filmed (and was filmed in) a video for her song, “Azerbaijani Housewife,” off of her debut album Under My Skin. Footage was shot in a rural village in the region of Oguz in the north of Azerbaijan. Activities shown are typical of the ones Seidl observed among village women during her service as a Peace Corps Volunteer but are not intended to represent the activities of Azerbaijani women in larger towns or the capital city of Baku.
