David Krakauer presents the ‘’Krakauer & Tagg’s Good Vibes Explosion’’ Tour

David Krakauer and Kathleen Tagg are back with “Krakauer & Tagg's Good Vibes Explosion”, playing several dates at prestigious festivals across Europe. The album “Mazel Tov Cocktail Party” was released on February 25, 2022 by Label Bleu and Table Pounding Records / L'Autre Distribution to rave reviews (see below). David Krakauer and Kathleen Tagg have since decided to rename the project “Krakauer & Tagg's Good Vibes Explosion”, as this is more in line with what they want to convey: “an uncategorized explosion of good vibes, with incredibly diverse music and people coming together in a new global sound.’’ Krakauer & Tagg's Good Vibes Explosion consists of: David Krakauer, clarinet and vocals Kathleen Tagg, keyboards, cello, accordion, electronics/samples Sarah MK, MC, vocals and rap Martin Shamoonpour, daf (Iranian frame drum), jaw harp and mouth percussion Yoshie Fruchter, electric guitar, oud and mandolin Jerome Harris, bass and vocals John Hadfield, drums and percussion The artists will perform this summer in Europe on the following dates: - July 5: Jazz à Vienne (38) - July 7: Rudolstadt Festival  (Germany) - July 26 & 27: Schleswig Holstein Festival  (Germany) They will also be performing in France in the autumn: - November 19: La Seine musicale, Boulogne (92) - November 20: Éclats d'Émail Jazz Édition, Limoges (87) - November 23: Cité musicale, L'Arsenal, Metz (57) From Mazel Tov Cocktail Party to Krakauer & Tagg's Good Vibes Explosion: Always in search of new aesthetic frontiers and new sounds, clarinetist, composer and conductor David Krakauer has teamed up with producer Kathleen Tagg to create a cathartic expression of joy and affirmation. In response to the rise of bigotry and intolerance around the world, Krakauer and Tagg have assembled a team of artists from a wide variety of genres and cultural backgrounds to convey a counter-message of positivity that celebrates our common humanity. Good Vibes Explosion was conceived and created by Krakauer and producer Kathleen Tagg as an “explosion of good vibrations” in response to the current climate of incredible polarization and negativity that pervades our daily lives. Their album, Mazel Tov Cocktail Party, with a tongue-in-cheek title that references a pundit’s slip-of the tongue, has received rave reviews across North America and Europe. Alongside Krakauer and Tagg, the project showcases a multi-generational/high-octane group of collaborators from very different backgrounds, hailing from the USA, Canada, Iran and South Africa: clarinet virtuoso Krakauer stands out as the godfather of Tagg's eccentric keyboards and production, Iranian drummer and multi-talent Martin Shamanpoor, the virtuoso bass of jazz guru Jerome Harris, the voice and words of soul singer and rapper Sarah MK and the lines of oudist/guitarist Yoshie Fruchter. Together they embrace the diversity of today’s America through their unique take on a multitude of traditional roots musics, bringing their enormous musical and cultural diversity to the project and collaborating to create powerful original material. Old forms are celebrated both by bringing them into a 21st century sound-world and expanding the context to make room for new stories. This project was created in response to the current climate of polarization that pervades our daily lives. In these uncertain times, it’s a chance to come together to celebrate our common humanity and foster joy, positivity and togetherness. Their influences are global, but the sound they create collectively has produced something uniquely their own. Familiar dance forms such as Polka or Square Dance never sounded this way before, with hand drumming, propulsive electronic beats, lyrics calling for catharsis and positivity, deep grooves and Krakauer’s wailing clarinet crying out for us to join together, celebrate and feel the power in our aliveness. For 25 years, David Krakauer has spearheaded projects that bring together multicultural elements in unexpected ways. He is considered one of the leading forces redefining and reimagining the music of his Eastern European Jewish cultural heritage. In 2008, he founded Table Pounding Records as a hub for cross-genre projects. Then in 2015, Kathleen Tagg joined Krakauer in the production and creation of Table Pounding Records: Table Pounding Music.

In the chaos, our music became the catalyst for hope and inspiration. We remained steadfast in our commitment to our craft as the resonance illuminated the darkness, reigniting our collective spirit. In less than 24 hours, in Budapest, we harnessed the power of our musical synergy. Crafting an unforgettable testament to resilience and creativity, with Chris Potter's special guest appearance adding a unique dimension to our album. The album embodies the transformative power of music, offering solace and inspiration to all who seek refuge in its melodies. We extend our deepest gratitude to Chris Potter for his extraordinary talent. His involvement in making music together with us is one of the greatest honors in the band's history. For embarking on this journey with us, special thanks to you, our listeners. May our music serve as a guiding light through life's turbulent waters. Söndörgő short biography: The primordial nature of traditional music, the sophistication of classical compositions, the energies of rock music and the purity of Bartók's thinking characterize the Hungarian band Söndörgő, one of the most exciting, innovative and successful bands on the international world music scene. When Söndörgő was formed more than a quarter of a century ago, the members were still children and practically grew up along with the band. Four of the five members are part of the same family of musicians: three brothers (Aaron, Benjamin and Salamon Eredics) and a cousin (David Eredics). Their spiritual backbone is the legendary Vujicsics Ensemble, which has been playing authentic South Slavic folk music for close to fifty years: father and uncle figures, along with other Eredics musicians. Thus, in accordance with Zoltán Kodály’s ideals, the musical education of the members of Söndörgő began nine months before their birth. "The year 2024 marked a pivotal turning point for the band, ushering in a new era of growth and creative exploration. With the signing of a groundbreaking record deal with esteemed label Ground Up Music, the band set the stage for the much-anticipated release of their transformative album "Gyezz" in the summer of the same year, featuring the illustrious jazz saxophonist Chris Potter. Amidst this period of profound evolution, the band also embarked on an exciting partnership with the forward-thinking management team at 3S Music."

Grupo Polo Montañez presents “Joyas del Guajiro”

Grupo Polo Montañez will unveil "Joyas del Guajiro", their new album, on June 14, 2024 for Lusafrica / Sony. This opus will be presented during September 2024 in Paris at an exceptional launch concert. After the death of Polo Montañez in 2002, the band remained inactive for some time. The absence of Guajiro Natural was difficult, and they were unable to find a singer capable of carrying on Polo's musical work in the same spirit. Some band members even decided to leave. It was in 2008 that they incorporated Yosleny Chirino as a singer, an excellent performer who, with his voice and melody, was able to respect the musical work of the group led by Amaury Romero Borrego. In 2014, Gladys Pérez, choir and minor percussion, recognised by the public as Polo's second voice and sometimes soloist, and Pedro Morales the third, returned to the group. Once again, all together, they confirmed their determination to keep Polo Montañez's musical work alive. From then on, they went on an international tour, playing on a cruise in Sweden and Finland, and at the Festival de la Juventud in Venezuela. They run their Peña Musical at the Casa del Campesino, in the Poblado las Terrazas, where they have their roots, and enjoy the recognition of foreign and domestic tourists who come to this place to enjoy the group and its music. Every year in June, the Jolgorio Polo Montañez international festival is held in Las Terrazas, celebrating the birth of the natural Guajiro, and the group is the figurehead of the event as guardians of this heritage. A new album with the Lusafrica label "Joyas del Guajiro" has been recorded in the dBega studios in Havana, featuring ten previously unreleased songs from Polo's oeuvre, which is now represented by his band with the same heart, showing the world that Polo is still alive through his music.

PACO EL LOBO & SANGITANANDA present “Memoria de los Cantes Flamencos. Vol.1”

Paco el Lobo will unveil their new album Memoria de los Cantes Flamencos on its release April 19, 2024, on Buda Musique. This new work will be presented live on stage on Wednesday June 05, 2024 at Studio de L’Ermitage (Paris). This first volume of Memoria de los Cantes Flamencos is an important event. On one hand because it is the first project of this order, in Spain as in France, for a quarter of a century. On the other hand, and above all, because it is undertaken, not without courage, by two French musicians, Sangitananda and Paco el Lobo. No one better than the latter could face such a challenge, after half a century of learning and professional practice of cante punctuated by four albums. There are few cantaores, Andalusian, Spanish or not, whose flamenco memory goes back to Pepe de la Matrona, Rafael Romero and Juan Varea (among others), from whom he received the magisterium and with whom he shared the stage. Even rarer are those who have managed to blend into a personal style the legacy of these masters and the subsequent innovations of Enrique Morente above all, but also of Camarón de la Isla or the last two generations of Jerez’s artists for whom, according to their age, he is a "primo" or a "tito" of reference. This first volume demonstrates that, contrary to a widespread prejudice, there are no “small” and “large” cantes, as long as they are all interpreted with respect and musicality. Revising your classics, discovering the richness of the cante repertoire or simply enjoying a beautiful musical work, aficionados and music lovers will find ample material to nourish their passion. We are waiting for the next volumes... (Claude Worms) Guests: Juan Manuel Cortes (palmas and percussions) Médéric Collignon (trompet) Édouard Coquard (bass) Cristina Rodríguez de Tovar (back vocals) Dani Bonilla (palmas and back vocals) Tracklist: 1. Mi niña Churri (Bambera) 2. Oye mi voz (Colombiana) 3. Agua pa’l molino (Bulería de Jerez) 4. El Rey de los cielos (Campanilleros) 5. Duros como el acero (Cartagenera) 6. Muero por ti (Alegrías) 7.
