JOEY LE SOLDAT /// BIOGRAPHIE
Biberonné au Rap US et français d'un côté et aux paroles des griots africains de l'autre, Joey le Soldat est petit-fils de tirailleur et fils d'un militant indépendantiste époque Sankara. En 2010, il sort diplômé en Lettres Modernes de l'Université de Ouagadougou et remporte le clash d'improvisation du festival Waga Hip Hop. Pendant trois ans, il enchaîne les petits boulots comme jardinier et donne des cours aux enfants de son quartier. Le samedi soir, il monte des sounds system. En 2014 - 2015, grâce au succès de son album "Burkin Bâ", la popularité de Joey le Soldat grandit en Europe. (...Mais aussi notamment auprés de la jeunesse burkinabè qui renverse le président Campaoré à la tête du Burkina Fao depuis 1987 !). Joey devient dans le même temps "Ambassadeur de la Marche contre Monsanto". Avec son flow puissant et un style unique qui mélage Hip Hop 90's, Electro et samples africains, Joey le Soldat revient aujourd'hui avec, BARKA, un nouvel album spectaculaire, taillé pour la scène.
JOEY LE SOLDAT /// BIOGRAPHY
Joey le Soldat is the grandson of a sharpshooter and the son of an independence militant fighter, raised with American rap in one ear and the words of traditional African storytelling musicians in the other. In 2010 he graduated in Modern Letters from the University of Ouagadougou, and won the Improvised Clash rap battle at the Waga Hip Hop Festival. He worked as a gardener and taught the children in his neighbourhood, while running sound systems and block parties on Saturday nights. After the release of his first album “Burkin Bâ” in 2014, Joey’s popularity grew in Europe, while his fame exploded in Burkina Faso as he joined a massive youth uprising overthrowing President Campaoré, a ruler who had held power for 27 years. Joey continued to bring the fight with his activism as an official Ambassador of the March Against Monsanto in 2015. With his deep, powerful flow and unique style that mixes ‘90s hip hop and electro melded with African samples, Joey le Soldat returns today with “BARKA”, a spectacular new album cut for the stage.
Born and raised in the Angolan ghetto of Cazenga, the now Portuguese-based instrumentalist’s new record is a melting pot of musical styles and cultures.
Diron Animal’s debut solo album, Alone, was released on 13 October 2017 via Soundway Records.

MUSIC FROM PLANET EARTH: PAST, PRESENT & FUTURE
Soundway Records was conceived in 2002 by label owner Miles Cleret whilst returning from Ghana with a hoard of dusty old 45s and LPs that had mostly not been heard outside the former Gold Coast since their original release. Planned on a whim the trip was not one of the carefully planned research expeditions that Miles would later embark on to any number of far-flung tropical destinations. On the contrary he left England with no idea of what he might find or that it might be the start of a career in the record business.
Although the label has it's roots in West Africa the scope has grown to include many other parts of the tropical belt with the aim of making available recordings that have in most cases never been available outside of their original countries and often not even there for over 30 years. Over the years Soundway's modus operandi has been to approach the music from a different angle from many of the more established "World Music" labels. By focusing on more obscure artists as well as big names and often concentrating on progressive recordings more in sync with Cleret's generation and background in DJ culture and dance-music. Styles have included afro-beat, funk, highlife, ethio-jazz, molam, calypso, cumbia, champeta, biguine, latin-jazz and disco as well as many unclassifiable recordings.
Since 2012 Soundway has begun releasing new material from a carefully selected handful of contemporary recording artists including acclaimed acts Ondatropica, Bomba Estereo and Ibibio Sound Machine

Hailing from Slovenia, Širom play vividly textured and (mostly) imagined, instrumental folk musics. Handmade and global instrumentation meets fearless sound exploration. The 3rd release from Glitterbeat’s new label imprint: tak:til
Before plunging into improvisational and complex compositional musical waters, Ana and Samo cite punk rock as the starting point of their music ventures. While Ana was busy playing bass guitar in a punk band in Ljubljana, Samo, along with his twin brother Jani, formed numerous local line-ups including the punkish Štrudls; the more acoustic Migowc and Čarangi; while eventually morphing into the experimental collective Salamandra Salamandra, which still enjoys a somewhat legendary status amongst Slovenian music aficionados.
“As a schoolboy I experienced a strange feeling of shame when listening to music, so I just didn’t. Later, when I indulged myself in music, I realized that this was because it was a very powerful medium for me,” admits Iztok, who cut his teeth in noise, metal and post rock bands such as ŠKM Banda and Hexenbrutal.
Samo and Ana first met at the improvisational music workshops, conducted by the leading Slovenian “improv-man” Tomaž Grom and Japanese improvisational percussionist Seijiro Murayama respectively. Other shared influences include classical minimalism and global musics. The couple eventually formed the kalimba-based duo Najoua.
Iztok lent an ear, liked what he heard and invited Najoua to join his band on a European tour, during which time they decided that the three of them should collaborate. But at the beginning it was not a smooth ride, as Samo recalls: “It was not easy to create music that would satisfy all three of us, but that’s kind of crucial, since it is this intersection of different personalities that created Širom. It is through conflict that new ideas emerge.”
The band’s emergent sound oscillates between a wide array of acoustic folk sounds and contemporary post rock meditations, often drifting from improvisation to structured composition and then back. It is described by the members themselves as imaginary folk or folk from a parallel universe. “Our music creates emotional landscapes. When I was still painting every day (Ana holds a degree in painting) I was trying to paint my dreams but that didn’t work out,” Ana remembers. “I discovered that by using an abstract image I can draw nearer to what I felt in my dreams. Our music is based on a similar principle.”
According to Samo, the guiding concepts of their music-making are: “To play on acoustic instruments, to work with repetition and a common sound. Each of us can play a simple thing, but the overall result is that a complex thing comes to life. The quality of sound depends on the combination of the instruments and that’s why we modify and prepare instruments or create our own.”
As an avid sound-seeker, Samo began to develop an interest in building instruments out of everyday objects like drawers, computer boxes and other “junk” (as he lovingly calls his creations) as well as re-tooling the ones he brought back from his globetrotting adventures that have included personal encounters with local musicians in India, Morocco, Mali, Greece and elsewhere.
Ana, who also nurtures a very personal relationship with music paraphernalia, adds: “There is a different attitude at play if you make an instrument yourself. It already tells you a story. If you buy it, it takes longer to get to know it, to tame it.”
In the little village of Lesno Brdo, tucked in the rolling hills ten kilometers south of Ljubljana, Ana and Samo organize music performances and festivals on a farm they rent, and divide their time between music making and vegetable farming. A close connection with nature is also important to Iztok who now resides in the capital city. “It’s a sort of a contact with the past but it also has its own life in the present.”
Fearlessly textured sonic landscapes – both linked to and unbound by – the past and present, geography and tradition, the real and imagined. Hypnotic, otherworldly and epic.
Širom’s music moves like the restless waters of their homeland. No matter how hushed or slow it may seem, it is never ever standing still.

Broke up with my man and went to Amsterdam alone.
So I packed a bag and I called a cab, I switched off my phone.
Empty chair next to me, just my luck window seat.
I'm already loving being on my own,
I'm already loving being all alone
In a little cafe with a little high grade maybe it's a little too strong But when in Rome l, I do as the Romans do build me up a spliff or two,
Inhale exhale say hi - hi - to the new.
Need to get lifted needed to get lifted needed to get lifted after you.
If you're waiting for the smoke to clear keep waiting my whole week Is eating nuff origami preeing paintings I will never feel alone Jamming with Van Gough and Frida Kahlo bun on the stress and bun trouble floating around the city save up in this bubble
You couldn't burst if you tried hate to say it to you killed my vibe but You killed my vibe and harshed my buzz Life is blessed till there was us rode until the wheels fell off crushed the whole thing into dust dug a hole buried us nothing left to reconstruct
Last few months were kinda dead saltiness the sourness
them kind of flavours ain't the one need some seasoning some rum Need to jet needed fun need to do it on my ones need to get you off my cloud heaviness it brings us down
put some space between us then put the sea between us then put this weed between us I wasn't wrong was right to leave us behind been kinda low and I needed to climb hurt for a second but giving it time I am on my j's and it's feeling so nice 'Dam's a healer booked a flight
Needed to get lifted..
Part timer in the city set the trail ablaze
Eyelids kind of happy that I'm wide-awake
Broken from the day we had to separate
But I'm feeling so much better now I'm miles away
In a haze lose myself for days
Find myself again boarding on a plane hungry for change
little change of scene
Colour it in green
Sprinkle it with herbs
Happy in my world never been better
Needed to get lifted...

HAVANA MEETS KINGSTON: The Album & Film
World - Anna (email@example.com)
EU - Vianney (firstname.lastname@example.org)
'Picture this - Kingston Meets Havana!' Although the two islands of Jamaica and Cuba are only miles apart, there has never been a recording project that truly fuses the music of the two islands together - until now.
HAVANA MEETS KINGSTON is a world first album due for release in November 2017. The project began in 2015 when Australian producer Mista Savona teamed up with Sly & Robbie, Bongo Herman, 'Bopee' Anderson and other legendary Jamaican musicians and personally flew them to Havana to work with members of the Buena Vista Social Club, Los Van Van, Havana Cultura & more. Alongside these highly experienced musicians Savona also scouted for young & up-and-coming artists from both countries, and it's this fusion of age, experience, culture and musical styles that makes this project so exceptional.
The joy in the studio and the sheer skill of the musicians involved has resulted in something truly unique and extraordinary. Recorded at the famous Egrem Studios in Havana, the project is called HAVANA MEETS KINGSTON and will be released in two parts - album #1 in 2017, with album #2 and a feature documentary following in 2018. Our first introductory video has already gone viral!

The first single to be unleashed from this amazing project is ‘Carnival', featuring Jamaican born vocalist Randy Valentine and Cuban singer Solis. It is a triumphant anthem and a song that speaks of the transformative power of music & dance. With its hypnotic rolling basslines, deep roots reggae feel and strong Afro-Cuban influence 'Carnival' is a song that may well open a new chapter in the history of Caribbean music. Sung in both English and Spanish, it switches effortlessly between the sounds and languages of the two islands and yet somehow feels completely natural and catchy - despite the very different rhythms and traditions of Cuban and Jamaican music.
