Rebel Tumbao | “Rebel Tumbao”

Rebel Tumbao by Rebel Tumbao

Rebel Tumbao  (Rebel “Groove”) is a family of like minded musician’s deeply committed to creating and performing music packed with groove, consciousness, spirituality, resistance, and positive vibrations with an authentic sound they call “AfroLatinRootsReggae”.

This funky fresh earthly sound is the uncompromising fusion of two of the most celebrated musical genres on the planet; Roots Reggae and contemporary Cuban Son – with deep influences of 70’s Soul, Gospel, the Blues, Jazz and African folkloric idioms. At the epicenter of this soundscape are pianist, singer, composer and educator, Matt Jenson and world-renowned percussionist and composer, José Claussell.
These partners in musical justice share a profound artistic vision of hope and truth expressed with poetic insights into today’s globalized culture. Their mind-scope is based on combining Bob Marley’s gospel of love, truth, justice, and economic equality with their mission to inspire all people to be more conscious of the social, economic and ecological impact of their actions. Rebel Tumbao, with their original compositions, awesome arrangements of Marley songs and progressive lyrics, will transport your mind, body and spirit to the healthier world we all know is possible.

Release date: 30 May 2014

Vyann Experiences are a Paris based musical collective consisting of Viane M (Horn & Production), Jalal (Producer), Daaf (Vocals), Deeway (Vocals), Florent Pelissier (Jazz pianist), Zrink, The Soulchimiste, Christophe (Guitarist) and Stéphane D. A diverse group of individuals who have various backgrounds and influences from not only Jazz but Soul, Neo-Soul, Rock, Hip Hop and other styles of modern electronic music.

They are very much inspired by legendary Jazz artists such as Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Donald Byrd, Charlie Parker etc. They fuse this with more modern Hip Hop and Neo Soul influences from artists like the late J Dilla, Erykah Badu, D’Angelo, Soulquarians and such. The collective definitely have their own style to merge with all those influences too however.

1er Voyage is the debut release and is currently exclusive to Bandcamp. However, there are plans of putting something more official out in future, possibly a vinyl release.
