 Zmaj kandidature... 5. 8. 2008  
       
 
Nove Konzerve
Band Nove Konzerve, ki ustvarja avtorsko rock glasbo, je nastal pred približno letom dni in pol, ko sva se združila vokalist in sprva tudi ritem kitarist Uroš Vučko ter solo kitarist Miha Zupanič. Pol leta kasneje se nama je pridružil sedanji bobnar Miha Cerar, s katerim smo bili zelo hitro na pravi valovni dolžini. Po dolgotrajnem iskanju basistov in poskusih s klaviaturisti, smo se odločili, da v band vključimo še eno kitaro kateri strune sedaj že več kot pol leta pridno navija Matevž Kopitar. Na mestu bas kitarista so z nami v preteklem obdobju sodelovali različni glasbeniki, ter kot vse kaže, bo tako ostalo tudi naprej. Vaje imamo v Moravčah (nekateri se pritožujejo, da trajajo celo večnost), pred nedavnim pa smo v studiu Garbage v Ljubljani končali s snemanjem plošče, kjer nas je k ustvarjanju izdelkov vodila odlična studijska atmosfera ter profesionalna ekipa (Drago Popovič in Bernard Pajk). Naša starost se giblje med devetnajstim in dvajsetim letom, prihajamo pa iz precej različnih koncev Ljubljane in ljubljanske okolice (Mengeš, Moravče, Domžale). V prostem času radi pohajkujemo po lokalih, se družimo in zabavamo, še najraje pa v roke primemo vsak svoj inštrument. Tako pač je. Življenje je rock'n'roll…

Fatima Spar & the Freedom Fries (Aus)
Two years after the release of their debut album, ´Zirzop´, Fatima Spar and the Freedom Fries have established themselves firmly in the Austrian and international music scene. After more than 200 live shows in more than 20 countries around the world, the band is currently working hard on their second album which will be released in the fall of 2008. In a good ´Fatima Spar & the Freedom Fries ´ tradition` , most of the new songs will be tried out live during the upcoming tour that starts in France at the end of March.

Fin Fang Foom (ZDA)
A pair of LPs for Lovitt Records, 2001’s Texture, Structure, and the Condition of Moods and 2003’s With the Gift Comes the Curse, found the band streamlining and amplifying upon their math-rock/post-rock sound, and the Foom became popular enough to warrant their first European tour. Given the circumstances of its creation, it’s no surprise that Native Tongue (2005, Native Tongue EP, out now on Japan’s Stiff Slack records) is frankly triumphant: Fin Fang Foom’s glacial gloom is moodier and grander than ever!

Katanija (Slo)
Smo skupina, ki se 4. leto ukvarjamo z ljudskim glasbenim izročilom Slovenije in Balkana in delujemo pod okriljem Železniškega kulturno-umetniškega društva Tine Rožanc, Folklorne skupine Tine Rožanc.
Želja po obujanju ljudskega izročila Slovenije in Balkana je združila skupino 19 ljudi, ki ustvarjajo od decembra 2003. Vokalno-instrumentalno skupino oz. orkester sestavlja večina ustvarjalcev iz Folklorne skupine Tine Rožanc, Folklorne skupine Emona in drugih glasbenih (rock in funky) skupin, katerih znanje in izkušnje se združujejo v okviru idejnega projekta Katanija (kar je izraz, ki je v srbohrvaškem slovarju razložen kot konjenica). Projekt se razvija izključno iz veselja in navdušenja nad spoznavanjem glasbenih zvrsti slovenskega ljudskega izročila kot tudi ljudskega izročila Balkana, katerega del smo nekoč bili in na nek način v nas še vedno živi.

Vodilo skupine je raziskovanje ljudske glasbe z ljudskimi inštrumenti in ustvarjanje oziroma vključevanje etno prizvokov v glasbo.

7 ženskih vokalov, ter 9 instrumentalistov; 2 harmoniki, 1 violina, 1 kaval (občasno igra tudi na lutnjo), 2 kitari, 1 kontrabas, 1 oseba na tolkalih (tarabuka, tamburin, ropotulje, tapan, zvončki…) tvorijo orkester, ki ima v svojem programu 40 stilsko različnih glasbenih (etno) izvedb iz različnih slovenskih in balkanskih območij; različna področja Slovenije, Hrvaške, Bosne in Hercegovine, Srbije, Črne Gore in Makedonije.

Za sladokusce ali pa "sladoušesce" imamo v našem reperotarju pripravljenih in naštudiranih več kot 40 glasbenih izvedb, iz različnih pokrajin Slovenije in predvsem Balkana.

Ultra (Slo)
Zgodba skupine Ultra se začne konec leta 2001, s prvim vidnejšim singlom Prebudi se in posnetim videospotom zanj. Sledili so koncerti po vsej Sloveniji, na različnih prireditvah in festivalih. Fantje in dekle so bili že tik pred izdajo albuma, ko se je skupina razšla in je vsak odšel svojo pot. Tako je ideja Ultre poniknila za nekaj časa, a nikoli usahnila. Ustanovnemu članu Tomažu želja po ustvarjanju in glasbi ni dala miru in tako je začel v letu 2004 ponovno zbirati ekipo, kar mu je po vnetem iskanju ujemajoče se ekipe pred poletjem 2005 tudi uspelo. Bend tako sestavljajo Marjeta (vokal), Tomaž (kitara), Jernej (kitara) Maurizio (bas) ter Domen (bobni).

Dweal
Dweal so mariborska pesrpektivna glasbena zasedba, ki navdušuje na različnih koncertnih odrih, saj dobiva na vrednosti tudi in predvsem zaradi izjemnega vokala, glavnega vokalista Matjaža.  Zanimanje za njihovo glasbo je vsak dan večje, skupina se v prihajajočih mesecih odpravlja tudi v tujino. 
Nastopili bodo na majskih igrah, hkrati  pa so dobili  izjemno dobro ponudbo, da kot edini slovenski predstavniki nastopajo na Crossover festivalu v Avstriji.
Trenutno pa so ti meseci namenjeni koncertom v Sloveniji in tako bi radi sem vključili tudi vas. V prilogi vam pošiljam nekaj osnovnih informacij, vsekakor pa menimo, da največ informacij pove sama glasba.

We Can't Sleep At Night
Od leta 2005 naprej so prekrižarili slovensko klubovje in dokazali, da so ob primerni konstelaciji zvezd zmožni (in primorani) dodobra razgibati obiskovalce in obiskovalke svojih koncertov, vsled česar so bili v letu 2006 s strani Radia Študent izbrani kot del karavane »Klubskega maratona«. Kot vrhunec živega udejstvovanja dojemajo samostojni koncert v okviru festivala Trnfest 07, kjer je bilo očitno, da suvereno obvladujejo tudi večje odre - da podčrtamo njihovo zagretost, za njimi je več kot petdeset koncertov. Po nastopu na Trnfestu, v drugi polovici leta 2007, so se posvetili snemanju. V maju 2008 (bo | je) pri neodvisni založbi Kapa Records izšel njihov prvenec, kjer (bo | je) zabeleženih 13 skladb; od »patriotsko« naravnane Chain me, preko Trigger happy tanks - kjer je lekcije iz igranja surf kitare delil edini gost na plošči, Robi Biloderič iz kultnih Bitch Boys - pa do dobro preverjenih »uniči glasilke« No offense ter diskoidno zaokroženih Tm T Dm in Blokish.

"Superb third offering from highly regarded Welsh outfit whose sophisticated acoustic folk-fusion is of the least pretentious kind. Alongside an array of instrumental skills (harp, fiddle, flute, guitar) their 'singularity' comes in the form of supremely silky vocalist Gwyneth Keen. Exceptionally fine with crisp and uncluttered production to match."

Analogsupply
Kaj te piči, da si v dobi digitalnega v samo ime skupine daš analogno – besedo, ki v trdnjavi digitalnega velja za bogokletno? Glasbeniki so že po svoji naravi pač radi kontra, pop je zanje kletvica in digitalno je danes pop. Glasbeno industrijo poganja digitalno, digitalno je brezhibo, je brez šuma, kot fotografija bejbe v modni reviji, ki so ji digitalnim programom zgladili gubice vse do plastičnosti. Je popolna, toda ni naravna. Digitalno je popolno, analogno vsebuje toplino; digitalno je vedno enako, je multiplikat; analogno je vsakič drugačno, je original. Digitalno je fotografska temnica brez kemije. Analogno je žica, digitalno je zrak. In analogne mašine so čudež, ki se pojavijo nekje vmes. Med telesnim, ritualnim in brezžičnim.
Digitalno je prineslo s sabo marsikaj, kar s pridom izkoriščamo, velikokrat nam prihrani ogromno časa. Vedno več nas je in vedno lažje je. Toda, ali ni absurdno, da se v današnjem času z digitalno tehnologijo zvoku umetno dodaja tisti šum, ki je last analognega! Analogno je nostalgija za dobrim. Kaj naj bo drugega, ko pa živimo v kulturi, ki je hočeš-nočeš digitalna?

Rzepczyno (Poljska)
RZEPCZYNO is one of the most interesting Polish bands; they combine a specific sound of folk music with the energy of rock. The band has a superb way of reinterpreting traditional folk themes and adjusting them to the form of progressive rock. The lyrics which are derived from the original folk tradition provide a springboard for a spontaneous artistic expression. The combination of traditional rock instruments of guitars, bass and drums, with violin and accordion, strengthens and enriches the band and gives them a distinctive recognizable signature sound. RZEPCZYNO created this distinctive style during the bands first years and is now sometimes humorously referred to as ‘agro-punk’. The band has performed many concerts throughout Poland and especially loves the audience interaction with outdoor concerts. Audiences obviously like the band, as expressed through spontaneous dance and exuberance. But RZEPCZYNO is not only received well by Polish audiences, their appeal extends beyond cultural and language differences, something that was particularly highlighted with the concerts in Berlin and Barcelona. The music played by RZEPCZYNO is a kind of mixture of reggae, rock, ska and traditional folk music of Wielkopolska (a province in western Poland). This ‘folk of lowlands’ – in contrary to the music of the mountains – was not well known and used only in an insignificant way in contemporary light music. RZEPCZYNO’s unique approach and expression of this style is their specific ‘discovery’ and it’s popularity is due not only to the strength of the music but also in the powerful lyric. It’s the energy and joy that emanates from their songs that makes it difficult to be indifferent to a RZEPCZYNO concert. Critics too have acclaimed RZEPCZYNO’s music. Some performances of RZEPCZYNO are particularly important. They have played in four ‘Woodstock’ festivals and for the final concerts of a Great Orchestra for Christmas Help. In 2001 and 2002 the band played in Studio 5 TVP (Polish Television) in Warsaw, on the stage located by the Palace of Culture.

Godalike
Godalika je godalni kvartet, ki deluje že četrto leto. Sestavljajo jo profesionalni, akademski glasbeniki Jelena Ždrale (violina, viola), Matjaž Sekne (violina, viola), Klemen Bračko (violina, viola) in Klemen Hvala (violončelo). V preteklih letih so soustvarili različne projekte, med temi najodmevnejši: ODPETI, ki oživlja slovensko poezijo v glasbi, filmsko glasbo za televizijske in dokumentarne filme, glasbo za gledališke predstave ter igrali po različnih koncertih, festivalih in kulturnih prireditvah po Sloveniji (Festival Lent, Festival poezije in vina v Medani, itd).
Leta 2006 so izdali svoj prvenec z avtorsko glasbo Nina De Gleria z naslovom Time 2 start. Gre za svojevrstno izdajo, saj je ponudbe z glasbo za godalne kvartete v Sloveniji malo, sploh pa je svetovna rariteta izdaja godalnega kvarteta z avtorsko glasbo enega samega skladatelja.

Jazzilanti
Glasbeniki, ki sestavljamo kvartet Jazzilanti, smo se pred tem projektom kalili v najrazličnejših glasbenih zasedbah. Člani zasedbe imamo zato izkušnje z igranjem različnih glasbenih stilov, od klasike, musicala, tanga, šansona, do rocka, funka, latina in popa. Svoje znanje ves čas dopolnjujemo in nadgrajujemo na raznih seminarjih in delavnicah, ki so jih vodili priznani slovenski in tuji glasbeniki (Rok Lopatič, Lovro Ravbar, Matej Hotko, Janez Gabrič, Saša Nestorovič, Matija Dedić, Grete Pedersen, Fillipo Maria Bresan idr.); posamezni člani delujemo tudi pri drugih glasbenih zasedbah (trenutno Big band Zmaji, Big band Grosuplje, mešana vokalna skupina Expe...). Trenutno vsi glasbeniki kvarteta zaključujemo šolanje na Srednji glasbeni in baletni šoli v Ljubljani, na oddelku za jazz in zabavno glasbo, kjer vseskozi iščemo prostor za vaje – od tod ime: Jazzilanti.
PROGRAM zasedbe:
Naš koncert sestavljajo izbrani jazz standardi; to so skladbe, ki imajo različne izvore. Lahko so črnske duhovne pesmi, popevke oz. melodije iz musicalov ali pa so jih tekom zgodovine jazza ustvarili jazz glasbeniki sami. Te melodije (t.i. jazz standarde) jazz glasbeniki vedno znova poustvarjajo in se z njimi preko improvizacije vsakič drugače glasbeno izrazijo. Na povezavi www.myspace.com/jazzilanti lahko slišite štiri skladbe, ki nekako povzemajo naš repertoar (poudariti je potrebno, da so posnetki snemani v živo in niso bili deležni studijskega šminkanja - prisluhnite glasbi, ne posnetku). Trajanje natopa in število odmorov se dogovori z organizatorjem. Možnost izplačila honorarja tudi preko študentske napotnice.

Angelo Branduardi (ITA)
This is not a musical, not a concert, not a dance and not a comedy….it is a ‘Lauda’ or rather a representation of all of these forms combined expressively together.
Angelo Branduardi has created a form of representation that goes back to sacred theater that was popular in the Xlll century, meeting with the origins of the Italian language, but being able to be at the same time surprisingly contemporary.
The “La Lauda di Francesco” is the logical and artistic continuation of the project “Infinitamente Piccolo”, the album, that the artist published with EMI in the year 2000. The album sings the “story” and the “Lauda” is put on stage.
“Infinitamente Piccolo” is eleven songs on texts that were taken from Franciscan sources. This album is dedicated to the Holy Saint Francis of Assisi. Angelo Branduardi has made a continuating tour that began in 2006 and has received, with a continuous momentum, a great and unexpected success.

As a direct descendent of french and amerindian stock, this grand dame of latinamerican song, knows more about the history of this new world than most. Having been exiled from her native Argentina for some years and told the stories of her land to foreign audiences, she has built up an immense international reputation that saw her share the stage with many other of the world's acclaimed artists, such as Pavarotti, Sting, Joan Baez et al. Her latest CD, "Corazon Libre" was released by Deutsche Gramophone and features a lot of classic repertoire as well as much of the new talent on the Argentine music scene. In December, once again she was chosen by the new and first female president of Argentina to sing at her inauguration.

Za kultno hrvasko skupino so bile glasbene oznake od vsega zacetka ustvarjanja pretesne. Zato so iskali svoj lasten slog in bili temu primerno tudi posebni na hrvaski glasbeni sceni ter mogoce zaradi tega tudi dlje casa ostali skriti slovenski javnosti. Neupraviceno, saj gre v primeru TBF za najboljso zivo zasedbo, ki je kriticna, duhovita, ima fantazijo in resnicno obvlada svoj posel. Edina prava primerjava bi lahko bili Beastie Boys, ceprav gredo TBF v svoji glasbi se dlje. Izdali so stiri albume »Ping Pong«, »Uskladimo toplomjere«, »Maxon Universe« in »Galerija Tutnplok«. Ze s predhodnjo izdajo so tudi doziveli pravo mero popularnosti in odziv hrvaske glasbene srenje, saj so pobrali vec glasbenih nagrad, med drugim tudi nekaj Porinov. Poleg tega pa so napolnili tudi Dom Sportova in nastopali na glavnem odru Exit festivala. Po 16-ih letih ustvarjanja so TBF na odru boljsi kot kdajkoli poprej in pripravljeni, da svoj sloves upravicijo tudi v vasem kraju.

Boss tweed (ZDA)

Boss Tweed, ta zanimivi Brooklynski trio iz New Yorka, ki igra izredno privlačno mešanico bluesa, rockabillyja, surfa in rock n' rolla, je skupina kakršne redko srečujemo na koncertnih odrih Slovenije. Trio se je mudil na krajši slovenski koncertni turneji  s skupno štirimi koncertnimi termini (v sklopu širše evropske), v kateri ni zaobšel tudi nastopa na tradicionalnem Ortofestu v Ljubljani.
Gre za trio s povsem izvirnim slogom, ki krasi njihov avtorski repertoar, prekaljene glasbenike, ki se zunaj Boss Tweed udejstvujejo in povezujejo znotraj različnih glasbenih projektov ali drugih žanrskih skupin, zato o visokem pedigreju posameznih članov ekipe Boss Tweed niti ni vredno zgubljati besed, vseeno pa je dobrodošlo, da poudarimo nekaj »osnovnih dejstev«. Srce in duša skupine je šefica Carolyn Sills, ki je pevka s posebnim šarmom in karizmo in njen zapeljivo čuten, erotičen soul glas, ki ne skriva hrepenenja in bolečine, je eden najpomembnejših karakteristik zunanje podobe Boss Tweed. Družbo ji delata simpatični kitarist Gerard Egan, prefinjen mojster tehnike igranja, kar se tiče združevanja prvin rock n'rolla, rockabillyja in bluesa na svoji Gretsch Hollowbody kitari in vsestranski bobnar Eric Reed.

Rudi Bučar (Slo)

Istrski folk-rocker RUDI BUČAR, je mladenič iz Izole,

ki danes predstavlja enega vodilnih istrskih tradikalistov

 - radikalnih presnavljalcev tradicije. Svojo ištrijanskost je

preizkušal že s prvencem Kapot, na katerem je istrsko beneške viže

zavil v plašč lahkotnejših, sredinsko rokerskih všitkov.

Z novim albumom Kambiament pa se predstavlja

v vlogi zrelega misleca in ustvarjalca istrske muzike

današnjega časa, ki drzno in smelo raztaplja

meje med ljudskim ter popularnim.

Nekaj besed o meni.
Sem Zoran Furman, študent ekonomije na Ekonomsko poslovni fakulteti v Mariboru. Poleg študija me zanimajo tudi potovanja, ki jim posvetim več časa kot študiju.
J
V zadnjih let odkrivam dežele sveta. Začel sem z avtoštopom  po Evropi- Švedska in Škotska, odkrivanje sveta pa nadaljeval v ZDA, kjer sem preživel poletje 2004 v tradicionalnem ameriškem poletnem kampu. Koncem februarja in v začetku marca 2005 sem se potepal po deželah JV Azije: Tajska, Laos in Kambodža.
Poleti 2005 me je pot ponovno vodila v ZDA, kjer sem preživel še eno delovno poletje, od tam pa sem krenil na pot v Peru in Bolivijo.
Obiskal sem Indijo in Nepal, se potikal po najbolj odročnih delih Etiopije, Kenije in Tanzanije, ter se povzpel na najvišjo goro Afrike-Kilimandžaro.
Poleti 2007 me je ponovno zamikalo začutiti Ameriko. Prve štiri mesece sem preživel delovno, nato pa sem izpolnil svojo večletno željo in se mesec dni potikal po čudoviti ameriški pokrajini, kjer sem obiskal najbolj znane Nacionalne parke.
 
Doslej sem predaval v številnih krajih na Štajerskem, Primorskem, Koroškem, Notranjskem in v Prekmurju. Bil sem gost knjižnic, mladinskih klubov in drugih institucij.
Pišem članke za razne revije: Spekter, Poslovni list, Otrok in družina, bil sem gost na VTV Velenje in TV Maribor ter na Radiu Štajerski val.
 
V okviru tematike potopisnega predavanja, lahko pripravim tudi fotografsko razstavo. Iz vsakega potovanja prinesem veliko fotografskega gradiva, ki ga strnem v najbolj zanimivo obliko.
Razstavljal sem na:
STA Ljubljana, Tyler Place (Vermont-ZDA), Galerija Hodnik-Klub Ajdovskih študentov, Univerzitetna knjižnica Maribor, Knjižnica Nove Fužine. Vse razstave so bile na temo Otroci sveta.

Fing Fang Foom (ZDA)
A pair of LPs for Lovitt Records, 2001’s Texture, Structure, and the Condition of Moods and 2003’s With the Gift Comes the Curse, found the band streamlining and amplifying upon their math-rock/post-rock sound, and the Foom became popular enough to warrant their first European tour. Given the circumstances of its creation, it’s no surprise that Native Tongue (2005, Native Tongue EP, out now on Japan’s Stiff Slack records) is frankly triumphant: Fin Fang Foom’s glacial gloom is moodier and grander than ever!

Ognjena poezija (Slo)

Ognjena poezija je ulična predstava (literarno-ognjeni spektakel), v kateri se prepletata slovenska poezija in ogenj.
Besedilo predstave je sestavljeno iz kolaža slovenske angažirane poezije in govori o svobodomiselni ideji in liberalnemu dojemanju sveta, o današnjem svetu in položaju posameznika v njem ter o odnosu avtorjev do teh tem.
Podajanje besedila ustvarja tudi zvočno podobo predstave, ki se dopolnjuje z zvoki, ki jih izvabljata igralca z manipuliranjem ognjenih inštalacij, ki so sestavljene iz različnih materialov in oddajajo različno kvaliteto zvokov.  Besedilo in zvoki pa se prepletajo z igro ognja, ki jo ustvarjata igralca, ki s svojo podobo in ognjenimi inštalacijami  tvorita vizualno podobo predstave. Vsi elementi skupaj (kolaž slovenske angažirane poezije, vizualna podoba igralcev in ognjene inštalacije ter njihovi zvoki) ustvarjajo apokaliptično atmosfero predstave.
Predstava traja trideset min

Always hand in hand with the social commitment of three Latin American MCs who fight for justice and dignity.
Onstage, they are all fury and attitude, accompanied by one DJ and an accordeon, making music they have taken to stages all over Latin America, from Venezuela to Brazil, Cuba, Chile and Uruguay among others and, of course, Argentina, where they’ve been whipping it up for years.
Now it’s time for the old continent. Actitud María Marta will be taking audince’s breath away at festivals and venues in Europe in July, August & September.

Tiken Jah Fakoly (Belokoščena obala)

Following in the footsteps of his musical mentor, Alpha Blondy, Tiken Jah Fakoly has established himself as one of the figureheads of the new reggae scene in Africa. Fusing his infectious reggae beat with hard-hitting lyrics, Tiken Jah has become a spokesperson for an entire generation of music fans, speaking out on political and social issues through his songs.

Tiken Jah Fakoly was born in 1968 in a village in the north-west of Ivory Coast into a family belonging to the griot caste. Tiken's music was successful and soon crossed national borders and spread to Europe. He was already a star in West Africa when he moved to Paris as a consequence of political trouble in his home country. Soon he was signed by Barclay (Universal Music) and his first album there (the sixth in Tiken Jah Fakoly’s career), Francafrique, made him win the title of Best World Artist at France’s 2003 Victoires de la Musique awards. Like the following album Coup de gueule it was produced in the legendary Tuff Gong studios in Jamaica. Both albums have sold over 100,000 copies each and propelled Tiken to currently be the best selling African Reggae artist. His new Album L’African is released in autumn 2007.

Tiken Jah Fakoly is not only a star in Africa and in France where he played more than 200 concerts since 1998, filling arenas during his 2005 Coup de gueule tour (and again in autumn 2007, with L’African).

He is becoming a star in Europe and America, too. In 2005 he performed as guest of Youssou N’Dour at the United Nations Organisation’s 60th anniversary concert in Geneva. At the world music tradefair Womex 05´ Tiken Jah demonstrated with an explosive performance why he is one of the most requested African and reggae-artists of the moment. His first international album was released a few months later. As a consequence, he performed at many important festivals (Roskilde, Couleur Café, Rototom Sunsplash, Sziget, Dour Festival, Summerjam, Chiemsee Reggae, Africa Festival Würzburg, Sunsplash Wiesen, Two77Splash Amsterdam, Stockholm Festival, …). By critics and audience, Tiken Jah Fakoly’s performance was considered to be among the best at most of these festivals. He has so much energy and power, an authentic musical jewel!

 

 
     
     
A Tribute to Andy Palacio feat. the Garifuna Collective & Umalali (Belize)

Following and supporting the wishes of the whole Garifuna community and it´s musicians to continue with Andy Palacio´s legacy, we want to announce for this summer 2008 a Tribute project that will come to Europe to present a solid and consequent program with it´s purpose and on top a spectacular live show. The Tribute band will be formed by Andy Palacio´s Garifuna Collective and some really talented Garifuna musicians that already made substantial collaborations in Andy Palacio´s debut album, Wátina. More…

Original artist information on our homepage:

Andy Palacio is currently the most popular musician from the Central American country of Belize and a cultural ambassador for the Garifuna, a unique African-Native American culture.

The debut “Wátina” received critical raves around the world and was awarded countless international prices. For several months the album was placed in the Top 5 of the European World Music Charts, and was selected as the top album of the year by the WMCE Panel. In October 2007, Andy Palacio will receive together with Ivan Duran, the producer of his record, the prestigious WOMEX-Award in recognition of his outstanding work.

On his first European tour in May and June 2007 Andy Palacio and the Garifuna Collective played nearly 20 shows at important festivals in Germany, UK, France and BeNeLux. Andy Palacio & the Garifuna Collective will be touring Europe this November, and again in the summer of 2008 with special guests from Umalali, a magnificent Garifuna women’s project whose album will be released by Cumbancha in spring 2008.

The Garifuna people live on the Caribbean coast of Central America. Palacio grew up in a small village surrounded by his unique traditions, which are based on elements of West African and Native Caribbean heritage. He speaks and performs in the Garifuna language, which was declared by the UNESCO in 2001 as an Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.. For Palacio, music has been the tool which he uses to promote and maintain his culture at home and abroad.

During the 1990s, Palacio became a star of punta rock, a popular yet unsophisticated party music. But his long-time collaborator and producer Ivan Duran convinced Palacio that he should focus on less commercial forms of Garifuna music and look more deeply into its soul and roots. Duran and Palacio set out to create an all-star, multi-generational ensemble of some of the best Garifuna musicians, naming it the Garifuna Collective. Their debut album “Wátina” (2007, Cumbancha) explores the more soulful side of Garifuna music. It includes powerful messages and symbols about cherishing and celebrating their culture, and is marked by enchanting rhythms, strong melodies and deep soulfulness.

Initially, the band was formed by a double-bass, a guitar and a violin player, who not only shared a high passion for Swing Jazz, but also an affection for experiments in electronical music, and so it comes as no surprise that they name as their major influences Django Reinhardt and the French electro-duo Justice. Thrilled by this blending of musical styles, a second guitar and a clarinet player, a DJ and a singer soon joined the others, bringing to life a band that combines experienced musicians and young talents of the French electro- and jazz scene.
The songs unfold their full potential when played live on stage, where they are accompanied by projections of films, revealing the music’s cinematographic dimension.
In June 2007, Caravan Palace managed to sell out the prestigious “Nouveau Casino” in Paris, and with their explosive mix of Gipsy Jazz and electronic rhythms made the crowd boil with joy.
Their enormously danceable songs and the band’s stunning stage presence spread enough energy to take over the entire hall. The band being dressed in the Zazou-style of the 1930s surely adds to their breathtaking performance. And so does the unique voice of charismatic lead singer “Latoya” Zoé, always in perfect harmony to the sparkling groove of the band.
With their showcase at Womex 2007, Caravan Palace clearly marked one of the major surprises of this year’s fair. The audience, consisting of course mainly of professionals and experts, just went wild, and even here, no one in the crowd could resist the urge to dance.

Vive le Swing!!
 

 
     
     
Khaled (Alžirija)

Khaled is without any doubt the best known raï -singer in the world. Venues are always packed to capacity, when this charming man celebrates the most emotive performance that you might have seen in your life. When he starts Didi or Aicha, he doesn´t need to sing – the audience does. His fans are the most loyal a musician can imagine – and truly love him. Innovating, brilliant, popular in his music - curious, open minded, non-dogmatic, sexy: Khaled is a phenomenon. He has been revolutionary to Arab music and invented the raï. His significance to the modern Arab culture, in North Africa and in Europe, is enormous.
Khaled started singing as a young guy in the 70’s. At that time there was popular wahrani an underground music, acoustic and heavily percussive, sweetened by the accordion. The music, as befitted its lyrics, was rough and ragged. But it was changing, and Khaled was part of the vanguard that altered raï forever. He was already a star among the Algerian youth when he moved to Paris in 1985. The career he developed there since then is really exceptional in world music. Khaled has witten worldwide hits and sold millions of records (and cassettes). N’ssi N’ssi, Sahra, Kenza … 1,2,3 soleil – these albums were a huge success since the early 90’s and songs like N’ssi N’ssi, Didi and Aicha conquered the pop charts all over the world.
His latest release, Ya Rayi, shows again his sensibility and force. Being more acoustic than the previous ones the album brings Khaled back to his roots of raï. At the same time it is modern, blends the Arab sounds with flamenco and other influences.
Khaled has toured a lot throughout Europe and lately also in the USA (where Santana went on stage to play with him) and demonstrated that he is a real magnet for the audience, His excellent band that remains the same for many years, supports his brilliant voice with a powerfull groove. Lately, as a consequence of Ya Rayi, Khaled played in theatres and classical music halls, his performances being more acoustic.

More than ever, Khaled is a herald of free spirit and of peaceful co-existance of cultures.

Yerba Buena (ZDA)
After attending one of their earliest showcases in New York, Ben Ratliff of The New York Times hailed Yerba Buena as "one of New York’s best new dance bands, mixing up the Latin boogaloo of the 60’s, Cuban religious music, some American soul and Fela-like Afrobeat. It’s a history of the transmission of Yoruban culture in a nutshell, and it’s a good party."

a joyful, ever-evolving, border-hopping groove” – New York Times

 “a sizzling jam session” Wall St. Journal

"…the future sound of Afro-Latin Urban America”
Interview Magazine

  "Yerba Buena takes Afro-Latin fusion to new heights…surprising and fresh new sound"
Los Angeles Times

 "… a musicologist's dream” – New York Times

All the critics seem to be rooting for Yerba Buena to hit it big with their latest release, Follow Me (Wrasse). Cutting a bigger slice of the demographic pie (cumbia, boogaloo, afrobeat, hiphop),  these creolized New Yorkers remain an urban Latin party band to be reckoned with, with an all-star guest roster and a geographically shifty palette of worldgrooves, masterminded by guitarrist/ producer/ composer Andres Levin.

“Andres Levin has emerged as the master chef of urban fusion” Los Angeles Times

 Along with Andres 2 cuban lead singers are the founding members and backbone of Yerba buena. The charismatic female vocalist Cucu Diamantes also responsible for composing many of the songs. And Pedro Martinez whose soultry vocals and mastery of afrolatin percussión complete the yerba buena sound. The trio is acompanied by an allways evolving cast of new yorks best musicians. Master Violinist Alfredo de la Fe. Drummers Mauricio Herrera and Skoota Warner Bassists Panagiotis Andreou and Sebastián Steinberg etc.  A musical collective with the spirit of a gipsy caravan Yerba Buena’s acclaimed live shows are known as an ultimate urban tropical party.

"NYC's most combustible Afro-Latin dance group, Levín may well ignite the first U.S. urban Latino music revolution since the 1970s. The addictive combination of Nigerian Afrobeat, East Coast hip-hop, Nuyorican boogaloo, and Afro-Cuban... gets only more potent live” Village Voice.

 

 
     
     
Buika (Špa)

In Spain, where she grew up, Concha Buika is considered as the new star of flamenco music - an aspiring female singer whose voice is described as being a mixture of Tina Turner, Lora Flores and Sarah Vaughan. However, Buika is definitely noncommittal to one specific style of music. Moreover, she picked up the twofold influence of her origin. Being the child of African parents who immigrated to Spain as their political exile before her birth, she grew up on the island of Mallorca. In her family, music always played an important role. During her childhood in Spain, she also became acquainted with Gypsy families and spent parts of her free time with making music with them.
Her personal background has left its traces on Buika`s music, in which she combines elements of soul, hip hop, jazz, copla and flamenco. Hence, Buika is especially marveled at her ability to cope with every style of music.
After featuring several reputable deep house productions and bringing out her first solo CD “Buika” in 2005, now she is attracting attention for her music again: her current album “Mi Niña Lola” received the award for Best Produced Album at the Premios de la Musica, which can be considered as the Spanish equivalent to the Grammy awards. “Mi Niña Lola” is featured by an all-star line up, among them the Latin Jazz trumpeter Jerry Gonzales, the flamenco guitarist Niño Josele and the famous song writers Manuel Quiroga and his collaborators Salvador Valverde und Rafael de Léon. The album is produced by the Grammy winner and highly appreciated producer Javier Limón (Bebo Valdes/Diega El Cigala: Lagrimas Negras, Paco de Lucia and many others). The Spanish newspaper El Pais calls the album “a revolution”, the Sunday Times exults “a star is born.” The 88-year-old Chavela Vargas adopted Buika as her musical godchild and predicts a great future to her.
Buika is well-known for her extraordinary impressive live perfromances, full of energy and emotions. This reputation is also reflected in her remarkable concert history: in 2007, buika was on an extended tour all over the globe, alluring and fascinating music-lovers in the world's greatest cities. In fall 2007, she performed in several big cities in the USA and she is also looking back to a succeful tour in France. We hop to see her soon in Central, Northern and Eastern Europe! A new album will be released in April 2008

 

 
     
     
Kevin Johansen (Arg)

Kevin Johansen, the Argentinean singer songwriter born in Alaska, has once again snagged three Latin Grammy nominations ... for the third time in a row! This time for his latest album entitled "Logo", that he recorded with his band "The Nada", in the categories:

- Best Alternative Music Album "Logo"

- Best Alternative Song "Anoche Soñé Contigo"

- Best Short Form Music Video "Anoche Soñé …”

Kevin has been previously nominated for an American Grammy in 2005 for Best Latin Pop Album ("City Zen") and received 3 additional Latin Grammy nominations for "Album of the year", "Song of the Year" and "Best Video".

"Logo" (Kevin Johansen's 4th studio album) is an ironic twist on Naomi Klein's "No Logo", featuring special collaborations with Andrea Echeverri from Atercioplelados, Amparo Sanchez of Amparanoia and Paulinho Moska from Brazil, among many other international guests. In this new album, KEVIN explores various rhythms and elements of the Americas all handled with an "almost" pop sound. Kevin constantly surprises due to his eclecticism, bilingual lyrics and the subtlety of his songs. Because he cannot be defined into one specific style, he often likes to define himself both as "de-genre-ate" (or lacking specific genre) and a "Subtropicalista".

Kevin Johansen, son of Argentinean mother and American father, grew up in Alaska but he considers himself Argentinean as he discovered the country when he was twelve years old. However, he also lived in big cities such as San Francisco, New York and Montevideo. He lived in NY in the 90's where he founded his band "The Nada".

Johansen continues to surprise both Anglo and Latin audiences throughout the Americas and Europe. He's been touring Latin America, US & Spain (where his albums were released) but also UK, Germany, Belgium, among other European countries (the last tour was in 2006).

 

 
     
     
La Shica (Špa)

La Shica represents, even in Spain, a really new and fresh proposal that has already gained the respect of specialists and audience. Despite the young formation of this group, they have managed to impress with their charismatic Flamenco Fusion promoters and audiences everywhere they go! Normally her concerts finish with several encore and standing ovations. Formed only 3 years ago, they have already achieved to fusionate with an astonishing harmony, several sounds, grooves and riffs from different music styles as flamenco, Hip Hop, Reggae or Bossa Nova.

The body and soul of La Shica (in Spanish: the girl) is the charismatic lead singer Elsa. Elsa grew up in Ceuta (Spain) moving to Madrid as a teenager with a clear purpose: become an artist. And she did. She studied at the prestigious flamenco dance school Amor de Dios were she met and worked with some of the best like i.e. Manuel Reyes or Rafaela Carrasco. After her studies she attracted attention performing soon as soloist dancer in several tablaos flamencos and prestigious dancing companies.

Parallel to that she has been singing since the very beginning, then according to her own words “dancing and singing simply belong together”. Though you can hear the influence of  some of her singing teachers like i.e. Eliseo Parra and Rafael Jiménez “El Falo”, Elsa has her own way of understanding flamenco. And exactly this is what marks the identity of La Shica: accompanied on stage and supported by her two “palmeras” (Spanish flamenco expression for the back vocal singers and dancers who help with their hand clapping and singing to support the rhythm of the songs and to enliven the performance of their lead singer/dancer Elsa Rovayo), a very creative rhythm section (percussion and double bass) and the talented flamenco/Brazilian guitarist Fernando de la Rúa, Elsa achieves to capture the audiences with her grace and talent from the very first note, mixing the elegance and the intensity of traditional flamenco dance and rhythms with some modern beats and grooves of hip hop reflected symbolically in her short hair and her golden tapping shoes… . In October 2007 La Shica will have a Showcase at the WOMEX, and in the second quarter of 2008 she’ll release their new album on Warner Music. La Shica is different - Check her out!.

Her third Album, “Music for Crocodiles”  proved already her incredible artistic development.  But it is her present album “33 1/3” that marks Susheela Raman's artistic coming of age. Brimming with creative energy, strong emotion, and musical ambition, the record is both reflective and playful. It marks the arrival of Raman as a British artist of real note and delivers on the promise of her 3 former albums. She creates a new identity through her voice, culture, and song.  The BBC said recently about Susheela´s 4th album: “It’s a brave record, covering sacrosanct songs by hallowed
20th century artists including Lou Reed, Bob Dylan , John Lennon , Jimi Hendrix and Joy Division, but Raman rises to the challenge! Rock classics are imbued with gentle Afro-Asian hues, making many of these timeless songs entirely her own”.
Born in London to Tamil parents and raised up in Australia, she grew up in a home full of Carnatic music (the South Indian classical tradition). Teenage rebellion led her towards black American soul, blues, and funk, and at just 16 she was leading her own funk & soul band in Sydney. In 1997 she moved to London and met guitarist and World music-Producer Sam Mills. They began to develop a new sound drawing on Indian and Western influences and encompassing English songs, Sanscrit texts, their own compositions and reinventions of songs from the Carnatic repertoire.
Her present work is about great songs imaginatively played and beautifully sung and her live performances are stronger than ever before. In 2008 she will present her new repertoire so don´t miss to book her now!
