lin-go (noun)—An unfamiliar language. Music may be the universal language, but that doesn't mean it should all sound the same. There are a lot of people speaking the language of music, but most of them don't really have anything new to say. Lingo is different. This is a band with their own secret language, as their name would indicate. There are familiar components, to be sure—ripping guitar solos that evoke the Allman Brothers, African and Latin grooves, jazz and funk, soulful vocals, thoughtful lyrics. Still, the result is unlike anything else out there, and if you open your ears wide enough, you can tell Lingo has something to say. Like some hip new street slang that hasn't hit the mainstream yet, Lingo is currently one of the best-kept secrets in music, but their tribe is growing. This new sound speaks from the heart and reaches the soul, once you learn the secret language. Do you speak Lingo?
