KAMAL MUSALLAM – “Homemade In Rome”

 

UPC BARCODE: 888174752488

 

RELEASE DATE: 2014

 

LABEL: K&G

 

ALBUM DESCRIPTION: 

In February of 2013, Kamal traveled to Rome, Italy, to experience a new musical adventure surrounded by the Roman Spirit and the iconic city’s cultural treasures. Here he aspired to tie it all together: the centuries-long influence of the Romans on the Middle East, and of the Arabs on Spain; the voyages of the Italian, Spanish and Arab merchants, reaching Asia in the Far East and the Americas in the Far West, who explored new lands, engaging in commerce and cross-cultural exchange, joy and beauty continually reborn.The creation of this album was no different:  on a winter’s night in the eternal city of Rome, in the warmth of an Italian home, a group of close friends of Italian, Spanish and Arabian origin were sharing stories, laughter and food, and most of all, making music - and so the album was born.

THE GYPSY SWING PROJECT – “Paris-Dubai”

 

UPC BARCODE: 888174571300

 

RELEASE DATE: 2014

 

LABEL: K&G

 

ALBUM DESCRIPTION: 

Alexandre Valls believes in the power of music. The power of music to bring people together to share a moment. The power of music to promote new lifestyles in opposition with the current trends. We started The Gypsy Swing Project in 2011 based on the idea that Dubaians were a new kind of gypsies, the gypsies of the 21st century. They travel more than anyone. They migrate wherever their work brings them…However, many of those modern gypsies found themselves trapped in a fast pace city where everything seems fake and sophisticated …This is why TGSP, with their friends, created a place where people could breath..a place that is “Far” from any other places in the city…people enter its  universe as soon as the elevator doors open!. The Gypsy Swing Project aims to promote the French Gypsy Music in Dubai. Since then, the band has performed at so many Music and Street art Festivals, Charity concerts, and prestigious Dubai venues. As ambassador of Django Reinhardt’s music, TGSP aims to perform popular French songs and Jazz Standard in the Gyspy Style. All in an n acoustic combo and a great load of energy! So Welcome to the Gypsy Jazz World!

"This album is a pure expression of my sincere love and gratitude to Seung-eun, the woman who helped me become a better man. After many years of being a workaholic and aiming for a respectable international career as a musician, I met Seung-eun. Since day one, her attraction opened my eyes progressively to a path of true love and happiness. Sadly, like the great saying goes, "you don't know what you have until it's gone". Longing for her became the drive to my personal enlightenment, which was the key to my true success. This is a "Thank You" gift to Seung-eun and her passion for music!" KM.
