    One of the most influential decades throughout musical history was the ‘80s. A plethora of bands made a name for themselves during this time. Now that we’ve come to 2017, many of these bands are releasing new music. In the past few years, we’ve heard from the likes of Tesla, Bon Jovi, and Kansas, along with former frontmen like Sebastian Bach and Stephen Pearcy. One band that was an ‘80s stalwart was Quiet Riot.

    ‘Road Rage’, is an 11-track achievement in hard rock. James Durbin may not have the distinctly recognizable vocals of Dubrow, but he still does a good job fronting the band that, at this point, has no original members left in the mix. Because of these facts, ‘Road Rage’ does not necessarily have the Quiet Riot signature sound that was heavily dependent on Dubrow’s vocals. Instead, with their label’s full support, the band embarked on a wholly new musical venture, scrapping the first sessions of the album in favor of Durbin’s fresh vocals.

    C'est un peu dommage que le label "Atlantic" ait laissé tomber  les artistes français pour l’édition cd de leurs œuvres. Il y avait des petites sucreries intéressantes. Le cas de Sens et encore plus bizarre. grande artiste, bonnes chansons qui sort de l'ordinaire et une seule compil' dispo ( sous plusieurs pochettes ). Alors ne gâchons pas notre plaisir et ecoutons ce bon disque, au grammage parfait.

    Tinariwen is a Tuareg group that performs a guitar-centric branch of Malian music that, to the untrained ear, is reminiscent of Ali Farka Touré’s, but is far more rock-oriented and percussive. All of the band’s musicians originate from the southern Sahara; the group’s name, meaning "empty places," is a reflection of their land of origin. The band formed in the rebel camps of Colonel Gaddafi, as each of the musicians had been forced from their nomadic lifestyle into involuntary military service. Surrounded by a displaced nation of their peers, Tinariwen forged a new style of music, trading their traditional lutes and shepherd’s flutes for electric guitars and drums. The style that resulted was dubbed "Tishoumaren," or "the music of the unemployed." Their music addresses issues such as political awakening, problems of exile, repression of their people, and demands of sovereignty. In a region with no postal or telephone system, their tapes soon became a grassroots voice of rebellion and a rallying point for the disenfranchised nation. Though outlawed in Algeria and Mali, 2001’s The Radio Tisdas Sessions and 2004’s Amassakoul are available to Western audiences. In 2006, they recorded their third album, Aman Iman: Water Is Life, released internationally in 2007 by Harmonia Mundi’s World Village imprint. The album was produced by Justin Adams, and featured the voice and guitar of founding member Mohammed Ag Itlale. Tinariwen toured the world for the first time in its wake. They followed the album with Imidiwan: Companions, a two-disc set containing one disc of music and a DVD documentary about Tinariwen’s history. This was once again followed by a world tour that included numerous festival appearances in the United States and Europe. Tinariwen signed to America’s Anti imprint in 2010. The label encouraged them to experiment. The end result was Tassili, issued in 2011, in which the band recorded a completely acoustic set in a protected region of the southeastern Algerian desert. The tapes were flown to America where guitarist Nels Cline overdubbed electric guitars and New Orleans’ famed Dirty Dozen Brass Band added horns, making Tassili a truly international collaboration. The album won a Grammy. The bandmembers were forced to flee Mali due to political and social unrest, and recorded their follow-up, Emmaar, at a studio in Joshua Tree National Park in the United States. It was released in February of 2014. Despite ongoing political upheaval, the band reconvened in 2016 after touring behind Emmaar, to record their sixth studio album, Elwan.

    Folk metal masters Tengger Cavalry will be unleashing their latest album Die On My Ride June 2 via M-Theory Audio. Check out the lyric video for the title track above.
    “Die On My Ride is a rather different album than all of our previous releases,” says frontman Nature Ganganbaigal. “This album reaches a more personal place for us. We discuss personal struggle surrounding identity conflicts, racial discrimination and individual freedoms. I think an important part of existing in modern society is learning to accept one another for who we are and embrace our differences, and to look beyond that to find a deeper connection between each race or ethnic group.”
    Ganganbaigal continues, “Musically, I intentionally tried to incorporate more clean vocal choruses, semitones and western minor scales, rather than stick just within our traditional Mongolian folk style. We also incorporated piano to add a more emotional element to the songs.”
    Tengger Calvary will be embarking on a tour with Felix Martin beginning June 3 in Montreal, Quebec. Helsott will jump on for several shows beginning June 18 in Vancouver through June 23 in San Francisco.
    “After so many months off the road, hours and hours of recording in the studio and many intense rehearsals, we are so excited to finally hit the road and raid with Felix Martin and Helsott!” Ganganbaigal exclaims. “Helsott is amazing – they play European-influenced pagan folk metal, and Felix Martin is an absolutely skillful progressive-influenced metal/rock act. We’re stoked to play many songs from our brand new album and also to have these awesome fellow world/folk music artists out with us!”

    For 10 years, the Algerian-French rapper known as Saïdou was a member of the group Le Ministère des Affaires Populaires (the Ministry of Popular Affairs) or simply, MAP. A hip-hop group based in Lille, in the north of France, they were highly influenced by the music and culture from the region—a bit of Algerian, a bit of Jacques Brel, a touch of Balkan, American hip-hop, and a political/social agenda from groups they idolized, like the French band Zebda. Saïdou has described MAP as “anti-racist, anti-imperialist, anti-colonialist and anti-system.” They eventually splintered into another group with Saïdou forming Le Zone d’Expression Populaire (the Zone of Popular Expression), or ZEP, which caused a controversy with their song, “Nique la France!” in 2010. The band was sued by an extreme right-wing group who claimed the song was racist against white French people. Many international celebrities signed petitions in their support of the band and the ensuing legal battle brought needed attention to racism in the country.

    Saïdou’s latest group, Sidi Wacho, continues his exploration into mixing musical styles and rapping about social/political issues, but this time adding a South American twist. We spoke with Saïdou backstage at the Festival International Nuits d’Afrique de Montreal after their sound check, through an interpreter.

    “I could write a whole book on how I discovered music,” Saïdou says. “I started music as a kind of identity rebellion. Questioning cultural identity has been an issue in France for some time—race, culture, many things in this area. And as a musician, I’m very interested in this as an immigrant of working-class background, especially as we are the children of the former French colonies.

    “Lille,” he continues, “is different from other parts of France because there is a large mix of North Africans. MAP, like Sidi Wacho, dealt with social and racial issues. The difference with Sidi Wacho is that now we have introduced a Chilean artist into writing and creating the songs, and he brings similar issues from his part of the world into the mix.”

    How Chilean rapper Juanito Ayala came into the mix began when Saïdou decided a few years ago to go on a trip to South America.

    “It was a voyage, not a vacation—a political voyage,” he explains, “because I was very interested in exploring the connection between the two continents—North Africa and South America. Both are in the Southern Hemisphere and I was interested specifically in learning about the indigenous communities and how they were both colonized by Europe. I knew a little about the history of South America because I am always interested anti-imperialism and anti-capitalism. What surprised me was how much the American capitalism and neo-liberalism—the Coca-Cola, McDonald’s—had spread there in a negative way.

    “So while I was in Chile,” he continues, “just by chance, I had heard Juanito’s music on the radio at the hotel I was staying at. So I asked someone who worked at the hotel who that was and then I went to a small street concert where he was playing. He knew about MAP and my music. A week later, he invited me to do a song at his next concert. Then we met a third time and just messing around writing a song together. I didn’t go there for the reason nor with any thought that I would be forming a new group on this voyage. It was just to explore the people, learn Spanish, and record some music for ideas. I thought I was on a break from doing music.”

    A year later, he returned to Chile and the two wrote a few songs together and thought they should try to record some of them. So Juanito came to France and Sidi Wacho was born. Saïdou brought in two members of MAP—accordionist Jeoffrey Arnone and Balkan horn player Boris Viande, and who were joined by French Afro-Cuban percussionist Fred “El Pulpo” Savinien (who’s played with Toots Thielemans and Carlos “Patato” Valdés, among others), and Chilean DJ Antu. The name Sidi Wacho itself announces the cultural mix of the group with sidi being the Arabic equivalent of “Mr.,” and wacho, slang for a street kid in Chile. In most of their songs, Saïdou and Juanito take turns rapping, the former in French and the latter in Spanish.

    While one may wonder without first hearing Sidi Wacho’s music, how the musical cultures would meld rather than clash, Saïdou sees a direct connection that allowed it to happen smoothly.

    “I think both North Africa and South America share a political culture,” he says, “and a musical culture in their histories connecting them through the musical rhythms brought by the slaves. This is an evident, obvious connection. And through our music and lyrics, we tap into these connections. The different styles of music all flow together, ca jure pas, as we say. And yes, it communicates the story,” then adds self-deferentially, “even if the quality isn’t necessarily there…. As long there is honesty and sincerity, the audience can hear it.”

    Saïdou invites the public to download their album for free at their website. “It’s a form of commitment to the movement to make it free,” he explains. The album also features a song with Brazilian singer Flavia Coelho, whom we recently interviewed. “With Flavia it’s all easy,” Saïdou adds. “She has great energy and great talent as well.”

    We asked Saïdou if he believes their music, or music in general, can be a force for change on the planet.

    “We don’t think we are going to change the world with one song,” he says, “but the idea of helping, being a tool for change, we hope we can help be a lesson to other people. That is the meaning of our music—to just try. Many artists think their music is, you know, is this universal thing and can change the world, but I think that’s a bit egocentric of them. We just see ourselves simply wanting to participate within the larger community as a collective, to let the music speak for itself and be part of a soundtrack to the movement of emancipation and change.”

    So does he have hope that things will get better?

    “I think there is some hope,” he concludes, “because we can see sometimes things get better. It’s like sparks that happen from time to time. So yes, I have hope. Though also,” he smiles, “sometimes I go to bed feeling a bit pessimistic, but every morning I wake up an optimist.”

    Οι Behind You είναι ένα (ελληνικό) ντουέτο, το οποίο αποτελούν οι Ορφέας Κάππα κλαρινέτο και Λάμπρος Ζαφειρόπουλος ηλεκτρονικά, ηχογραφήσεις. Για τον Ζαφειρόπουλο είχαμε γράψει προσφάτως, με αφορμή το πολύ καλό LP «λ/κ», που μοιραζόταν με τον Κωστή Δρυγιανάκη, ενώ και ο Ορφέας Κάππα έχει κάποια… προϊστορία, εξ όσων είδα στο discogs, μέσω προσωπικών καταγραφών και συμμετοχών σε σχήματα (The Sailing Tomatoes). Ως Behind You παρουσιάζονται πρώτη φορά, τώρα, μέσω μιας κασέτας (40 αριθμημένα αντίτυπα – οι εγγραφές υπάρχουν και στο bandcamp), που έχει τίτλο “The Goodmorning Sessions” [HxoiKato Apo To Spiti, 2017] και η οποία περιλαμβάνει δύο κομμάτια στην πρώτη πλευρά (Χ) κι ένα στη δεύτερη (Υ).
    Το πρώτο, γραμμένο ζωντανά στο Underhouse στούντιο, στο Βόλο (όλα τα tracks είναι γραμμένα εκεί), βασίζεται, φυσικά, στο κλαρίνο και τα ηλεκτρονικά. Το πνευστό αυτοσχεδιάζει μελωδικά, με… υποβαθμισμένες αναφορές στην ελληνική ή όποια άλλη παράδοση – ούτε jazz, ούτε… Tzadik, ούτε τίποτα. [Προσωπικώς, το μόνο που ανακαλώ στη μνήμη μου είναι ο Γιάννης Μαρκόπουλος των sixties soundtracks («Μικρές Αφροδίτες», «Ο Φόβος» κ.λπ.), κυρίως στη διαμόρφωση μιας κάπως παγανιστικής ατμόσφαιρας]. Τα ηλεκτρονικά βοηθούν «πιέζοντας» στο background. Το δεύτερο track θα μπορούσε να πει κανείς πως συνεχίζει στο αυτό ύφος, αλλά και όχι… Είναι πιο αβαντ-γκαρντίστικο, καθώς και το κλαρίνο αυτή τη φορά κινείται σε πιο «σύγχρονα» μονοπάτια, με τα ηλεκτρονικά να… υπονομεύουν στο ίδιο ύψος. Ενδιαφέρον οπωσδήποτε και αυτό, δηλαδή πολύ ενδιαφέρον – αν και το πρώτο φαντάζει στ’ αυτιά μου πιο παρεμβατικό.
    Στη δεύτερη πλευρά της κασέτας, την Y, καταγράφεται ένα ακόμη track των Behind You. Έχει διάρκεια περί τα 14 λεπτά και ξεκινάει με το κλαρίνο σε δρόμους μελωδικούς, πριν ακολουθήσει μια κάπως minimal διαμόρφωση με τα δύο όργανα, ας-το-πω-έτσι, το κλαρίνο και τα ηλεκτρονικά, να συνεργάζονται επί ίσοις όροις, δημιουργώντας μιαν υπερβατική ατμόσφαιρα – η οποία μετά τη μέση αποκτά δυνατά αγχωτικά χαρακτηριστικά, πέραν του πιο αναμενόμενου κλεισίματος.
