TRIBUNE PATRICK NOAH FOR HIS NEW ALBUM: Why I chose the path of Crowdfunding on www.ulule.com to finalize my new album “Tecla”?
The album has 11 songs including “Tecla” the title you can listen on YouTube on the link and http://youtu.be/vxH8jLuDFGk “Elegua” the introduction of the album vocals accompanied by my daughter Julie (10 years) and my son Yoann (7 years).
I vibrates Africa and I sweat Cuba. Africa, I distill humanity, the sense of sharing the joy of living. Clichés? But clichés that live. Cuba, I own musicality, sense of rhythm, the instinct of the moment.
As I often say it’s the music that saved my life: my grandmother singing of Saperia accompanied by my guitar ripped me a bad disease when I was a teenager when I die on a hospital bed in my village Cameroon.
academic training pharmacist, musician born and passion, music for me is like a medicine because it brings joy, comfort and well being. I like to smile, happiness and the joy of life to people through my music because it is important to bring something positive to others through our works and our deeds in this difficult and cruel world.
Refined in Cuba, full of spontaneity and sincerity, this third album carries with it the best fevers: one that makes you want to dance.
Indeed in this album I collaborated with several high caliber musician friends who belong to Cuban groups known worldwide as Los Papines, Bamboleo, El Trabuco (Manolito Simonet). They have put their heart, their energy, their passion with the aim to share the legacy of our ancestors “tara” (those who left Cuba, the Caribbean, the Americas centuries ago with accidents history represented by them, those who remained in Africa represented by me) … is the mission that I give in my musical career.
With our production structure Association Afromusiques Culture, by bringing our own funds, we have invested nearly 3/4 of production costs on our own (about 15,000 euros). The project is ambitious because I want a high quality album with timeless music as usual, eclectic, and that affects the music lovers from all continents. Today we spent all our own funds and we have more money to complete the album. For the album can point his nose, we ask for your help, that would be on mixing fresh, mastering, and the shooting of a truly professional clip.
Get ready for October 1, 2014 to make your contribution on www.ulule.com. Join us so that together we can give birth to their third album.
