Soothsayers - Eagle Song (Official Video) out May

Order vinyl: https://soothsayers.bandcamp.com/al... Buy/stream digital: https://WahWah45s.lnk.to/HoZPZID Director: Yan Murawski Photography : Matt Fox Dancer : Sherrine Kayra Anderson Editor : Yan Murawski Wah Wah 45s are proud to present the first release from Afro-dub stalwarts and brand new signings, Soothsayers. Having been fans of this influential South London based outfit for the best part of two decades now, it's come as a great thrill to finally, officially welcome them to the fold. These four brand new recordings, issued rather beautifully on ten-inches of wax with bespoke sleeve artwork and featuring the imagery of Polish photographer Kazimierz Zagórski, draw from the kaleidoscope of influences that have forged the Soothsayers sound. For the new listener they provide a window into the world of a band that have explored myriad forms, developing the groove and philosophy that originally shepherded these musicians onto a common path. For the seasoned fan, these tracks provide a fresh take on some live favourites, including re-workings of Afro-jazz favourites, and expansive vocal versions of classic Soothsayer dubs. Blinded Souls is a fresh recording of a bubbling Afrobeat tune, first released on Soothsayers sophomore album, Tangled Roots. Simple, direct, chanted harmonies deliver a lyrical message lamenting the "long works hours culture" and modern materialistic priorities. Gritty rhythmic horns, jazzy Rhodes and analogue synths combine perfectly with an Afro break-beat for the three part vocal blend to ride on - this version was mixed by legendary dub wizard Nick Manasseh. Eagle Song provides some soaring spiritual jazz and is a new version of a piece that was recorded for Soothsayers' debut LP, Lost City. It's a deeply grooving instrumental that has been an energetic high point of the band's live shows. Sax and trumpet improvisation and interplay, tight ensemble playing and a gritty mix by Rhys Adams at Yesking Studios make this a highlight. Roll River Roll is a tough yet soulful dub cut that lays the perfect sonic bed for Soothsayers' three part harmonies, paying respect to the great Jamaican vocals groups like Culture, The Gladiators and The Mighty Diamonds. The rhythm is a reworking of a version from an earlier recording, Red Earth Dub, with a vocal written in the midst of a chaotic world with a calling to get back to our roots and learn from the natural world. Finally, Refugee, written in tribute to all resilient humans uprooted from their homeland and coping with the struggles of relocation, is a new version of the instrumental Salaam Shalom that featured Soothsayers horns, and was produced by Nick Manasseh for the Roots Garden label. There but for the grace of God go we! Previous radio support comes from Gilles Peterson, Jamie Cullum, David Rodigan, Don Letts, Robert Elms and many more worldwide.

Una explosión sonora que ha traspasado las fronteras, ha burlado los esquemas y ha trazado un camino para la escena musical independiente en Latinoamérica. Un lugar imaginario y a la vez real donde no sólo existe la música: el teatro, la danza y el humor como bandera, son los efectivos recursos que usan sus 6 integrantes para exponer ácida y burlonamente el absurdo que es Colombia.

Hot 8 Brass Band - Can't Nobody Get Down (Official Video)

Hot 8 Brass Band - Can't Nobody Get Down Buy / stream the new album 'On The Spot': http://bit.ly/H8OnTheSpot Listen via Apple Music: https://geo.itunes.apple.com/us/alb... Second line Sunday: Ladies of Unity Parade featuring The Hot 8 Brass Band “For those who can’t make it to the second line parade this weekend, sit back and enjoy this trip backatown...” The Hot 8 Brass Band is pushing traditional New Orleans music into the twenty-first century. Hip hop and funk musicians who happen to play horns and marching drums, they write original songs and keep up with the latest fashions but they come out of a tradition that dates back over a century. The New Orleans brass band originated on the streets, with deep ties to the jazz funeral, a musical burial procession that begins with slow hymns and ends with everyone dancing to uptempo music. That jubilation carries over into weekly parades known as “second lines,” when clubs parade through their backatown neighbourhoods to the beat of the brass band. You can feel this excitement in the video for “Can’t Nobody Get Down”, which follows the members of the Ladies of Unity Social Aid & Pleasure Club on their annual parade. Winding past BBQ vendors and roving “car bars,” the ladies do their buckjump and highstep moves while men hold back the excited crowd with ropes. Propelling the dancing and good times is the Hot 8, those funky rhythms from the “back row” of tuba and marching drums and the over-the-top harmonies of the trumpets, trombones, and saxophone in the “front line.” These are the instruments of yesterday but the Hot 8 is the sound of today’s New Orleans streets. They march off the streets and onto the nightclub stages and festival grounds where fans from all over the world get a taste of their homebrewed mix. For those who can’t make it to the second line parade this weekend, sit back and enjoy this trip backatown. (written by Matt Sakakeeny) The band would like to give huge thanks to all the secondliners – without them this video wouldn’t have happened.

Tour dates : http://juanamolina.com/halo/#tour Directed by Alejandro Ros & Juana Molina Co-directed by Pablo Ramos Grad Edited by Ian Kornfeld Photo by Leo Tamer Produced by Federico Mayol Featuring CHUNCHUNA VILLAFAÑE PARAGUAYA Quemarás la ruda, prepararás la poción, y en noches de luna repetirás la oración: "Linda luna que ahi con tu luz iluminas el brebaje a ti te invoco, ayúdame a conseguir lo que he pedido." Se lo bebió, se lo bebió todo, se enamoró, se enamoró como yo. Nos devora una pasión, pero pronto yo ni lo miro. Está embrujado, y yo ya no lo valoro, no lo lloro, lo ignoro. Quemaré la ruda, prepararé mi poción. Si esta noche hay luna, revertiré la ilusión "Linda luna que ahi con tu luz iluminas el brebaje te invoco a ti, ayúdame a conseguir lo que he pedido" Y me olvidó, me lo bebí todo y él me olvidó, me olvidó como yo. Y ahora que me olvidó , la embrujada soy yo y no lo olvido. ¡Ay, qué pesar! oh, luna, ahora yo lo adoro, y de nuevo lo lloro.
