Kel Assouf - Fransa

CD/LP/DL: Digital: Release date: 15 February 2019 Kel Assouf return with an even more transformative collection: Black Tenere. Produced by the band’s keyboardist Sofyann Ben Youssef, the mastermind behind the highly touted AMMAR 808, the new album strips things back to a power trio lineup and focuses on the crackling, forward-looking energy of Nigerien front man Anana Ag Haroun’s next level Kel Tamashek (Tuareg) rock songs. Kel Assouf’s musical journey has flowed seamlessly from the well-spring created by Ishumar desert rock pioneers Tinariwen - that Haroun first encountered as a young musician in Niger - towards sonic horizons that include the rock classicism of groups like Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and Queens of the Stone Age and the club beats and astral ambiance of European electronic music. On Black Tenere, the band pushes these different textures and influences towards a persuasive, raw-edged crescendo. Ag Haroun see’s the path to the new album and its new sound this way: “my musical tastes didn’t change but they are expanding further thanks to my different encounters and my curiosity. Black Tenere is a rock album. it's a choice to give a more original touch that builds up the identity of Kel Assouf and differentiates it from the other groups of Ishumar music. For me the music has to travel and it has to be open to other sounds so that everyone can listen to the messages it carries.” The messages found in Ag Haroun’s lyrics are indeed potent, tragic and inspiring in their defiance. The struggle of the stateless Kel Tamashek (a name they prefer to the colonial moniker “Tuareg”) to maintain control of their ancestral lands, their dignity and their nomadic way of life, has only recently entered the fringes of Western consciousness. This is not a band in search of a theme. Ag Haroun’s lyrical intentions on the album are clear and transparent. As he puts it, “Black Tenere talks about the Tamashek tragedy, its history since colonization until today, and the geopolitics that unfolds in the desert for its natural resources.” But infused into the sharp, unswerving social analysis and the calls for resistance, there is also the shimmer of nostalgia and a poetry of deep longing. The recognition that the very fabric of desert life is at stake and has possibly already been lost. The recordings brilliantly reflect the strong collective heart of the band – each musician supporting the album’s propulsive, hypnotic purposes - yet on many occasions stepping forward in thrilling ways. Kel Assouf is a triangle of influences, cultural expressions and complex identities. Oliver Penu, a young jazz drummer from Belgium. Sofyann Ben Youssef, a renowned electronic producer and rock fan, born and raised in Tunisia. Anana Ag Haroun, a second generation Ishumar guitarist and singer-songwriter from Niger - living in Brussels, one of Europe’s most multi-ethnic capital cities. The band is a reflection of how contemporary music works and enriches us. In an era where borders are being redrawn and walls are being erected, Kel Assouf shows us other possibilities. Kel Assouf: Impassioned and defiant. Wired and spectral. Boundless and innovative. Ishumar sonics 3.0


An Elaquent reply to one of Hiphop's greatest instrumentals, Quik's Groove III. This time flutist Seb Zillner matches Charles Greene's majestic performance and leads the Elaquent production to a zen-like zenith. Watch Animator/Director Eric Power's vision. "When I first heard Elaquent's "Moment of Weakness" I was struck by how cinematic it sounds. I began to see landscapes with rolling hills, mountains, forests, and streams. I decided very early on that I wanted to pull the camera back and challenge myself with letting the landscapes tell the story and dictate the mood. It's no secret that I am a huge fan of Samurai cinema (my first animated feature is a Samurai film, afterall). The flute featured in the track was so striking to me that I wanted to make it part of the narrative, so I decided to tell a loose story of a traveling musician who plays for the gods. It was important to me to not lock down any particular narrative as the music felt bigger than any short story could contain. So, until the day I can convince Elaquent to score a full feature, this is gonna have to do!" - Eric Power (Director/Animator) Song produced by ELAQUENT featuring Seb Zillner on Flute from the album "Blessing In Disguise" #Elaquent #Animation #MelloMusicGroup Sounds Beautiful Like The Truth Mello Music Group, 2019

Avantdale Bowling Club - 'Home'

Listen to Home: _____________________ The function of this work is to deconstruct the concept of home. Siri will tell you that home is 'a place where one lives permanently, especially as a member of a family or household' yet the main subject of this short documentary does not fit that criteria. Gum Wetnhiak was displaced from what he knew as home as a child. With his brothers and mother he immigrated as a refugee from war-torn South Sudan in 2003 to start a new life in post colonial Australia. In this piece Gum takes us through a day in his life and into his new home in the Collingwood commission flats while constructing for us his own definition of home. We would like to send our most sincere thanks to Gum and the entire Wetnhiak family for their time. Thank you. __________________________________________________ produced by Tom Scott & Hearken Films cinematography by Benjamin Bryan edited by Caitlin Bryan titles by Elliot Walsh Thanks to the Wetnhiak family, Yarra Youth Centre, Dead On Sound

Purchase/Stream: 'Meáchan Rudaí' is the opening track of The Gloaming's latest album, The Gloaming 3. Released on 22 February 2019. Video created by Tom Kalin. Lyrics and English translation below. © Liam Ó Muirthile. Cóiriú ar an dán ‘Meáchan Rudaí’ ón gcnuasach An Fuíoll Feá, Cois Life (2013) © Liam Ó Muirthile. An arrangement of the poem ‘Meáchan Rudaí’ from the collection An Full Feá, Cois Life (2013) Mo mheáchan i do bhaclainn sa phictiúr dínn beirt i Fitzgerald’s Park, agus mise in aois a trí. Ár meáchan araon. Ár gcómheáchan. Meáchan do hata anuas ar do gháirí. Mo mheáchan is tú dom iompar ar feadh naoi mí. Meáchan suí agus luí agus éirí. Do mheáchan féin nár ardaíos riamh ó thalamh ach chun tú a chur i dtalamh. Do mheáchan beo. Do mheáchan marbh. Meáchan na bhfocal ag éirí is ag titim eadrainn mar a bheadh sciatháin scuaine ealaí. Trom-mheáchan urnaí. Cleitemheáchan daidh-didil-dí. Meáchanlár fáinne fí na gcuimhní. Meáchan cheol do ghutha ón tuath sa chathair. Meáchan do bheoldatha ag luí ar do liopaí ag aeráil ghutaí. Meáchan do chumhrachta i seomra na hiarbhreithe. Meáchan do thuirse máthartha á rá liom bheith amuigh go cneasta... Read the complete lyrics: The Weight of Things (extract) translation by Gabriel Rosenstock. The weight of me in your arms. A photo of the two of us in Fitzgerald’s Park. Three years of age I was. The weight of the pair of us. Our weight together. The weight of your hat shading your laughter. My weight as you bore me for nine months. The weight of sitting, getting up, lying down. Your weight that I never lifted from the ground – before burying you in the ground. Your living weight. Your dead weight. The weight of words rising and falling between us, the wingbeat of swans. The heavy weight of prayers. The feather weight of lilting. The middle weight of memory, ancient spiral. The weight of the music of your country voice in the city. The weight of the lipstick on your lips airing vowels. The weight of your fragrance in the bedroom after giving birth. The weight of your maternal weariness asking me kindly to go outside...
