...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.

TRIBAL HYBRID CONCEPT: US review

 http://jpsmusicblog.blogspot.com/2014/09/cd-review-new-imported-music-from-red.html

From another U.K. record label, Gonzo Multimedia releases the experimental side project of Cyrille "Clearlight" Verdeaux entitled Tribal Hybrid Concept. The album has Verdeaux joining forces with Pascal Menetrey on this adventure into the local sounds of many tribes facing extinction in today's world. The new fourteen song release uses the language of the tribes amongst an ambient backdrop that only enhances these special dialects. One of the perfect examples is "Raonis Song" which features the voice of the Chief of Amazonia speaking on behalf of the children of the Kayapo tribe. Many of the songs feature the chants of different tribes as Verdeaux and Menetrey pick the perfect background music to give the songs a modern feel for the general public. Songs like "Organic Trance" and "Trance Connexion" have sound clips of African birds and insects amongst a steady dance beat. The different tribal chants give the music different tones, as with the deep swirling of "Papou Pas Pris" and the lighter, more energetic rhythm of "Zeph Here." The club-like feel of "Trance Pire" keeps the energy going right through to the closer of the quietly exploring sound of "Amazon Corazon."
