Here in the hippie quarters,
We play the gypsy tunes
Your eyes came to my mind,
Again they dazzled me big time.
Come along my darling girl
Even if you are barefoot and half dressed
There is no one else but you
Let's roam away, you and me.
Eternal riders, nothing stands in our way.
Full time festive fun,
Gypsies without tents and land.
Εδω στα χιπικα
που παιζουμε τα γυφτικα
τα ματια σου θυμηθηκα
ωρε πως εζαλιστηκα
Για τα Πανηγυρια
Ελα μικρη μου εσυ
ξυπολητη χωρις βρακι
δεν ειναι αλλη μονο εσυ
ελα να φυγουμε μαζι
τιποτα δε μας ζυγωνει
Φουλ ταιμ πανηγυρια
Γιουφτοι χωρις τσαντιρια

In the Sahara desert, an old Tuareg man comes back to the camp where he grew up for a party. He remembers the joys and the torments of the nomadic life he lived with a friend who has since deceased: memories from their naive childhood in the sand dunes, the adventures they lived during their teenage years, the fights and the dramas of their adult lives… Their friendship tells us the story of hearty people living in lands of loneliness.

"There was a time
I lived fulfilled.
Life taught me that
It can often change.
The one you find in solitude
Is prisoner of egotistical desires.
I have a friend I can trust
Who quenches the thirst
That burns in my heart.
I walk in his footsteps
Pursuing memories built
On a dune that's always moving.
No sleepwalking, don't keep me apart
I'm through sleepwalking, god be in my heart
No more sleepwalking, been asleep too long
No more sleepwalking, keep me with you go"
Honeyfeet - Whatever You Do (Official Video) out 2nd March 2018
Animated by That Way Up - Poppy Rand and Tim Wheatley
Pre-order the Honeyfeet album Orange Whip: https://WahWah45s.lnk.to/v5c7RID
On 2nd March Wah Wah 45s will release Whatever You Do, by the new single by their latest signing, Honeyfeet. The song premiered on Craig Charles’ BBC 6 Music show on 6th January.
Whatever You Do follows the release of the single Sinner, which received plays on BBC 6 Music, with the accompanying video premiering on Clash Music. Whatever You Do showcases the band’s unique brand of folk-hop. The song addresses the fear-mongering of the press.
For the last couple of years Honeyfeet (whose name comes from a line in the Blues Brothers film) have been a conduit for the ideas and expressions of an exotic mixture of Manchester based musicians.
This genre-defying band incorporate styles including jazz, and the aforementioned folk and hip hop into their music.
The band are fronted by Ríoghnach Connolly – also known for her work with Real World artists Afro Celt Sound System and The Breath – someone The Guardian called “a remarkable singer and flautist who…can ease from Irish traditional influences to soul”. The line up on the record is completed by Rik Warren (vocals/harmonica), Gus Fairbairn (tenor sax), Biff Roxby (trombone/vocals), Ellis Davies (guitar), Lorien Edwards (bass guitar), John Ellis (keyboards) and David Schlechtriemen (drums). Drummer Phill Howley joined Honeyfeet as a full time member in January 2016.
Since their self-released debut album, 2013’s It's a Good Job I Love You, keyboardist John Ellis jumped on board as full-time member, bringing his unique musical presence. This enabled the development of a more texturally adventurous style, as witnessed with the dual atonal solo between himself and guitarist Ellis Davies on Sinner. Similarly, for their next LP, Orange Whip, engineer, bassist and spiritual guide Lorien Edwards makes his Honeyfeet recording debut, so completing the "kitchen" of this very special band.
Whatever You Do is released on March 2nd. The album, Orange Whip, will follow on March 30th .
