Is Tip-Top to be in TOP?


Suntem infiltrati cu muzica si filme din top-uri: Morandi, Spears, Maxim, ettccc. Muzica si filme ieftine, care contin niste acorduri si versuri usor de retinut si comedii cu scene perverse, infantile. Tot ce e bun, insa trece pe alaturi, asteptand momentul pina cand lumea o sa descoperim deosebitul. E usor de observat efectul de turma in acest caz, unde se duc toti ma duc si eu. Se pierde unicitatea. Imi aduc aminte si fraza: "Tot ce e bun nu are nevoie de publicitate". Ori, azi vedem tone de publicitate la diferite filme sau albume de muzica, in urma audientei oamenii fiind dezamagiti de cele vazute si auzite. Anume acesti artisti vor sa fie renumiti, vazuti. Pe cand, cei care fac lucruri bune prefera sa ramana intr-o parte, sunt modesti si simpli.
Am descoperit cu o saptamina in urma originalitatea artistei Ayo - un glas inconfundabil si melodii pentru suflet. O poza si cateva date despre ea:
Folk-soul chanteuse Ayo emerged as one of Europe's biggest new pop stars of 2006 with her breakthrough debut LP, Joyful. Born to a Nigerian father and gypsy mother in Cologne, West Germany, on September 14, 1980, as a child Ayo absorbed the musical traditions of her parentage as well as influences including American soul, reggae, and Afrobeat, all staples of her father's extensive record collection. Ayo first studied violin before moving to piano and guitar. At 21 she relocated to London, later dividing her time between Paris and New York City and earning attention while opening for neo-soul kindred spirits including Omar and Cody Chestnutt. After recording a five-song demo reel, Ayo briefly receded from the live circuit in late 2005 to give birth to her first child. Early the following year she signed to Polydor, and with producer Jay Newland completed Joyful (the English translation of her Yoruba name) in just five days. Buoyed by the lead single "Down on My Knees," the album fell just shy of the German Top Ten.

Cool voice, nice instrumentals and positive vibes. She will stay in my playlist for a while. Mai ales pentru influenţa reggae în negative.
