Music critics call Lin Hai, the most noted pianist both in China and Taiwan, a genius with an eastern right hand and a western left hand. He has also been described as having "the temperament of Chopin as well as the languidness and elegance of Debussy," and "the affability and strong melodic sense of George Winston and the enriching and imaginative thoughtfulness of Keith Jarrett." As critics also term it, Lin Hai is a genius whose has "an easternized right hand and a westernized left hand".

At twenty he was the best in his country and represented China in the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, becoming the first Chinese ever to enter the semi-finals. In 1992 he graduated from the Central Conservatory of Music. At the same year, he began giving concerts in Taiwan and China and composed movie scores and TV drama scores. Lin Hai was exposed to jazz at the early age of twelve. This early exposure and his solid training in classical music combine to give his music a unique quality, which switches freely between classical, New Age, modern and Jazz music. He plays the piano in a way that makes the notes sound clearcut, warm, and calm. The pieces he composes are uncomplicated and quiet, but are imbued with a sense of humanity that can soothe the listeners.

The Mystery of Nevâ:
Sound, like a ship passing through the mysterious, is a bridge between the ocean unfathomable and the world in which we live. Since time immemorial, every lover of music who journeys on the musical sea has crossed this bridge. For us, Nevâ serves as our bridge to that mystical, veiled ocean. Nevâ has always been a keystone of our music – never failing to reveal new doors, horizons, and worlds to all who pass through. Nevâ offers a strong foundation, not just when presented as a sound or tone, but also as a mode, harmony and melody. To honor this, we open this recording with Nevâ Pesrevi by Tanburî Cemil Bey who has been a flame inspiring all tanbur players since his time. We also wished to name the final album Nevâ. In this recording, we tried to carry the torch of Nevâ, handed down through the ages from musician to musician, as far as our power, heart and love would allow us to, bowing only to musical concerns. We did our best not to compromise this pure style that has been flowing throughout history.

We present Nevâ to the listener, asking for forgiveness for our mistakes, if you should hear any. We'd like to express our gratitude: first of all to our teachers who made it possible for us to collaborate; to Cengiz Onural who opened the doors of not only his studio, but also his heart, and who catalyzed our creation of this work; to Hüseyin Tuncel who played the rhythm section during the recordings and was always by our side in spirit; and to Kaf Music Company. Every breath taken, every plectrum moved to bring about this humble creation is dedicated to its reason forbeing.

With thanks --
the musicians,
Murat Aydemir (tanbur) and Salih Bilgin (ney).

La mémoire de Zanzibar

Connue en Europe pour sa participation au Culture Musical Club, Bi Fatuma Binti Baraka, dite Bi Kidudé, est la doyenne des chanteuses de Zanzibar. « Madame (bi) petite chose(Kidudé)» tient son surnom swahili de sa petite taille et sa réputation de son grand talent.

Si son âge reste flou, probablement autour de 90 ans, sa carrière a démarré dans les années 20 elle apprit son art auprès de la chanteuse Siti bint Saad. Pour échapper à un mariage forcé à 13 ans elles s’est un temps tenu éloignée de Zanzibar. Elle a vécut en Tanzanie et en Egypte où elle fut la chanteuse de plusieurs orchestre de danses. Toute sa vie, elle pratique deux styles très distincts, chantant au sein de taarab, ces grands orchestres festifs surgis à la fin du 19e siècle, après l’arrivée de musiciens égyptiens sur l’île de Zanzibar. Les orchestres de taraab comprennent des violons, un oud, un qanun, mais aussi des percussions venues d’Asie et des claviers occidentaux. Ils pratiquent une musique métissée qui incorpore des éléments de culture typiquement swahilis, arabes africaines et asiatiques. En qualité de chanteuse percussionniste et guérisseuse, Bi Kidudé participe depuis toujours aux rites d’initiations Unyago pour le passage des femmes à la puberté et "henna" pour l’initiation des futures épouses.

En 1999, lors du festival du film de Zanzibar, elle a reçu un award d’honneur pour sa vie passée au service de l’art. En novembre 2005 le Womex lui remet un award pour célèbrer sa carrière qui est sa première consécration au niveau international.

Kang Eun Il is one of the world's most acclaimed Haegum artists and is regarded as the forerunner of crossover music, combining traditional Korean music with non-traditional genres. Ancient Futures, her debut album, combines various musical genres: traditional, classical, jazz and improvisation (used for soundtrack of Kim Ki-Duk’s movie “Hwal” - "The Bow"). She has greatly broadened the scope of her instrument, playing with famous musicians and orchestras both at home and abroad. Kang has long been interested in the possibility of bringing her instrument to a wider audience by experimenting with crossover music and this has led to her collaborative work on popular songs with a number of famous jazz musicians. Really beautiful, emotional music !

Origine du Groupe : Spain
Style : World Music , Gitan Music
Sortie : 2005

Nace en 1998 formado por un grupo de amigos estudiantes de educación musical en la Universidad de Granada. Ese mismo año graban una maqueta de seis temas con la intención de dejar constancia de tantas y noches de fiesta y música, para que quedara un recuerdo de esos años, y para sorpresa se venden 3500 copias, y además les lleva a ser premiados en varios concursos andaluces, entre los que destaca el Lagarto Rock de Jaén.

Ese el punto de partida para que decidan lanzarse al mundo del bussines musical, y grabando su primer y segundo disco, “Aficiones” (2000) y “Once temas de conversación” (2002) para la compañía granadina Producciones Peligrosas. Estos dos años dan para mas de 200 conciertos por todo el país, dos nominaciones a los premios de la música de Andalucía,(mejor canción y mejor álbum de flamenco fusión por Aficiones),la inclusión de un par de temas en la música de la película de Alberto Rodríguez “Siete Vírgenes” nominada a los premios Goya 2006, y más de 10.000 copias vendidas de unos discos que apenas tienen promoción y distribución, lo que les sitúa como una de las bandas más auténticas y originales del país.

Durante el siguiente año centran más su actividad en Cataluña, donde se trasladan algunos miembros de la banda, y donde conocen a Carles Lloveras, un guitarrista flamenco catalán que se incorpora a la banda y por medio del cual conocen a la compañía discográfica que les grabará su tercer disco.

Es en el 2005 cuando graban “Candela” para la discográfica catalana “Fourni produccions sonores”, distribuido por K-industria, un disco grabado en la Casa de la Fournier, en la Garriga (Barcelona) y mezclado en Granada, en el que sorprenden con una formación recién estrenada más acústica y callejera,( se incorpora el chelo a la banda y se prescinden de las guitarras eléctricas de anteriores discos), y que recibe las mejores críticas de los medios: Candela es una modélica obra de flamenco rock urbano, donde se desenvuelven el puridad el tanguillo, la copla y la bulería, aunque para el oído común se oye transitar a Kiko Veneno, al Chico Ocaña más sentimental, al lenguaje pop también, todo hermosamente dicho (inmenso Antonio Arco) e interpretado. La versión de “Jel’aime a mourir” de Francis Cabrel es para enmarcar.- La Vanguardia - por Esteban Linés. (26 de Agosto 2006).

En el 2006 el primer single de Candela, “Quiero Saber” es incluido en el recopilatorio “Carácter Flamenco” editado por Discmedi, junto a artistas como Martires del compás. Miguel Poveda, Duquende, Ojos de Brujo... Al finalizar 2006 Candela lleva vendidas más de 5000 copias y 250.000 canciones descargadas de su pagina web oficial www.elpucherodelhortelano.com

Transcurridos dos años desde el lanzamiento de “Candela” el puchero nos presenta ahora su cuarto disco “HARUMAKI” ., que estará en la calle el 3 de diciembre de 2007.

HARUMAKI son once nuevas composiciones que parten de inteligentes letras y buenas melodías y que se visten con el flamenco, la rumba, el pop, el rock, el funky,…En este nuevo disco te encontrarás guitarras flamencas que a veces suenan gitanas y a veces se saturan y distorsionan, arreglos clásicos de cuerda, vibrantes y alevosos vientos, una contundente base rítmica a cargo del cajón del “faraón”, y por supuesto un hilo conductor, la voz rota de Antonio Arco, curtida en nueve años de trayectoria. Una voz que ya ha creado un estilo propio e inconfundible.

HARUMAKI se ha grabado en los estudios granadinos de Producciones Peligrosas por Pablo Sánchez (Enrique Morente, Los Planetas, Estrella Morente, etc), y se ha mezclado por Carlos Díaz (Eskorzo, Lagartija Nick, Amparanoia, etc) durante la primavera y verano de 2007. Es un disco que aparece bajo el propio sello del propio grupo, Aficiones Records y la distribución en España corre a cargo de la compañía catalana “Discmedi”.

Como novedad señalar que tras la marcha del guitarrista Carles Lloveras en 2006, se incorpora a la banda y graba este disco la joven guitarrista flamenca de Barbate (Cádiz), Patricia Ramos.

En breve comienzan una gira que les llevará de nuevo a todos los rincones para dar a todo el que guste Harumaki del bueno.

Origine du Groupe : V.A Bahamas
Style : World Music
Sortie : 2003 (1965)

Most of the major Bahama Islands lie no further than 200 miles off the Florida coast. The United States has had generally a greater influence on the history and development of this British colony than did the Spanish-speaking Caribbean islands to its south and east. This is also true for most of the music of the Bahamas; certainly it is true in the case of the music presented in this album—the religious vocal music of “rhyming spirituals” and anthems.

The songs and the style heard here are the result of alternate periods of contact with and isolation from the United States mainland. The Bahama colony was established at about the same time as the Carolina colony: around 1670. Africans from many tribes—Ibos, Ijos, Yorubas, Mandingoes, Ashantis—were imported as slaves to both places, as well as to other British settlements in the New World. Whereas tribal identity quickly vanished in the mainland colonies, one’s awareness of a particular African heritage remained intact to a great extent in many of the European-colonized islands. This was so in the Bahamas, where the surrounding waters provided temporary insulation against outside influences; there is still an awareness of tribal distinction in some parts of the Bahamas. During the Revolution in the mainland colonies, a group of Loyalists left the Carolinas with their many slaves and settled on Abaco Cays in the Bahamas, where a number of freed slaves also had come to live. A vital new music had been developing in the Carolinas, as well as throughout the whole of the Southern plantation area. This music was now brought to the Bahamas, where a similar development may have been taking place. Here, the very old songs were preserved (and are in fact still sung), and a distinctly Bahamian style of singing developed simultaneously with the further development of the American Negro spiritual.

Emancipation came to the Bahamas in 1838; escaped slaves from the southern American states sought refuge in the free islands, particularly Andros, largest of the Bahamas. Until the end of the Civil War, there was a steady inflow of African-Americans to Andros and, with them, their songs. Isolation and poverty insured the preservation of these songs, so that Bahamian music today reflects many of the developments in mainland music that occurred over a very long period. We can hear in the older music of the Bahamas something that may be close to the very early plantation slave music.

The “rhyming spiritual” is the distinctive Bahamian type of religious song. “Rhyming” simply means intoning couplets against a melodic background of voices. (“Rhyme” here means “verse”—not necessarily coinciding final syllables.) The rhymer—the lead singer—sings a memorized or improvised rhythmic narrative part that continues to build in intensity while the other singers repeat a chorus behind him—that is, they sing the song. The rhyming style reached its greatest heights during the sponge fishing in the 1930s.

A West African tradition of singing sermons has been carried on, and further developed, in the New World. We can hear it in church services conducted by preachers who bring their congregations to heights of religious fervor by the gradual transition during the sermon from speech to song—song of tremendous intensity and power. Rhyming seems to be the combination of the traditions of singing sermons and African drum and bell rhythms. The rhythmic patterns in rhyming are also found in West African music. While there is still some drumming in the Bahamas, it had been forbidden in the mainland colonies and had to go underground. The intricate handclapping that developed in the Carolina and Georgia Sea Islands may be a compensation for lost bells and drums. In the Bahamas, where there is little handclapping, the singing sermon became the means for utilizing this and other rhythms. Other features of African music, such as the call-and-response vocal pattern, also found their way into Bahamian song.

Sortie : 2010

This is the first Souad Massi DVD ever released. Features 17 tracks specially recorded acoustically.

The world loves an enigma, and enigmas rarely come as talented, beautiful, honest and courageous as Souad Massi. Her music has been welcomed as a brave new dawn in the history of Maghrebi music. Her youthful obsessions with western rock, folk, country music, as well as the chaabi and classical andalusian music of her native land, gave birth to a style uniquely her own, an emotionally charged vehicle for themes of loss, nostalgia and the bonfire of innocence. She is now one of the leading female World Music Artists, having sold over 300,000 albums around the world. She has stamped her own identity, her own style, with her culture-blending sound - a mix of traditional, rock, folk, classical,flamenco,while her ballads are melodic, poignant, achingly beautiful. Just as Souad Massi herself is all light and shade, innocence and experience, melancholy and optimism, so is this beautiful representation of the best of her 3 albums reinterpreted.
