I Cash Radii:

Here’s a copy of the Cirrus track that you can also download for free at bonobomusic.com
“Dance is dangerous, joyous, sexual, holy, disruptive, contagious, it breaks the rules. It can happen anywhere, anytime, with anyone and everyone, and it’s free. Dancing insists we take up space, we go there together in community. Dance joins us and pushes us to go further and that is why it’s at the center of ONE BILLION RISING.”
~ Eve Ensler
Art is the most direct and visceral way of speaking to people across boarders, and barriers. Art motivates, art empowers, art creates news ways of thinking.

When I heard her voice for the first time, was spellbound. Her I Am So Happy Album is superb!
“immediately found myself mesmeried by her voice, beauty and her music. This was one woman whose music I was keen to find out more of and I was not dissapointed when I bought her songs on iTunes less than 5 minutes after watching a video of her song ‘Mamelodie’.”

She has an amazing voice! Listening to her En Mi Piel disk is just amazing, like honey.
Concha Buika was born in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, her family came from Equatorial Guinea; she grew up among gypsy people. Ever since she was a child her musical talent was evident, but it was after a visit to London to study drama when, after being invited to a Pat Metheny concert that her life changed. From that moment she began her musical career. During the 1990s she took part in different productions, such as Ombra by La Fura Dels Baus and the soundtrack for the Spanish film Km.O. At the same time she composed several songs such as “Ritmo para voçé”, “Up to the Sky”, and “Loving You” (all of them house successes in Europe).
From November 2000 to March 2001 she sang at The Luxor, Harrah’s, and Gold Coast casinos in Las Vegas. She also performed as a guest singer at the Blue Note festival in the same city.

One of the most beautiful songs ever written.
Emir is a Turkish popster who broke through in 2009, “Makina ” (‘Machine’) is the title of the second single taken from his sophomore effort, “Ateşten bi’ rüzgar” (‘Wind on fire’). This track was written by Gavriilidis Vasilis with lyrics by Alper Narman and Onur Özdemir and the video was directed by Erdi Sevinç.
Karsh Kale is widely regarded as a pioneer of global fusion and electronica as his music has inspired and defined the worldwide club phenomenon known as “Asian Massive” or “Asian Underground” in the early part of the decade. Today Karsh’s music has travelled far past the underground club scene and has been featured on stages from Lincoln Center to the Burning Man Festival, and from the Barbican Center to the Hollywood Bowl.
Karsh’s diverse musical talents — whether as a world-class tabla player/drummer, producer, composer, songwriter, remixer or DJ – have led him to working with some of the world’s leading artists such as Pandit Ravi Shankar, Sting, Zakir Hussain, Herbie Hancock, Lenny Kravitz, Anoushka Shankar, Yoko Ono. Bill Laswell, DJ Spooky, Shujaat Khan, Vijay Iyer, Chaka Khan, Paul Oakenfold and many others. Kale has also composed original music for Elizabeth: The Golden age directed by Academy Award winning director Shekhar Kapur.
Cinema is Karsh’s most ambitious album to date. Despite the myriad of influences pulsating through him during the two years it took to produce Cinema, many of the compositions were written on an acoustic guitar or piano — often while Karsh was either on the road, or in a studio. But as the title “Cinema” suggests, the process of scoring films has had as much impact on this album’s sound as Kale’s usual palette of progressive electro-rock and fusion influences. “Cinema” is the aggregate of these diverse inspirations, experiences and musical expressions within one cohesive vision.
