Chosan helps Africa Celebrate U2

Written by Shirlene Brown | February 27, 2008 | Leave a Comment

In the Name of Love - Africa celebrates U2

Chosan seems to be everywhere a positive impact needs to be made. His latest effort involves working with Les Nubians, Angelique Kidjoe, Vieux Farka Toure, Vusi Mahlasela, Keziah Jones, Soweto Gospel Choir, and Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars in a tribute to Bono and U2. The tribute pays homage to Bono and U2′s humanitarian relief efforts to alleviate suffering from disease and poverty in Africa. The great part about it is that the songs are all an African interpretation of U2′s songs. I love the idea of jamming to a traditional African sound with U2 lyrics, and their creative interpretation is phenomenal.

Chikezie holds his own in American Idol’s second round

Chikezie - American Idol

American Idol has some singers who are already standing out. Chikezie repped Africa, singing his heart out in style. Much as I love orange, I was glad he didn’t have the orange suit on this time. Of course, with his voice, it is easy to look past the suit to his tremendous talent. His song choice, ‘I believe to my soul‘, worked very well for him, allowing him to work the stage and give a commanding performance. He did a great job, and we look forward to seeing him in the next round.

If at first you don’t succeed, dust yourself off and try again.  Chikezie Eze must have been singing those Aaliyah lyrics when he auditioned again for American Idol after he was not picked last season.  We Africans don’t believe in quitting!

Aman Iman Cover

Tinariwen is composed of five men and one woman from Mali. Their latest album, Aman Iman, is an acoustic blend of contemporary music and Touareg style music sang in French and Tamashek. Tinariwen starred in a 52 minute documentary called Teshumara, or ‘the guitars of the revolution’, recently played in movie theaters in Europe. It tells the history of the Tuareg rebellion and the role played by Tinariwen in this struggle for freedom. Combined with Amassakoul, it’s been released as the CD/DVD combo The Soul Rebel Of African Desert. They have promoted their music through a flurry of concerts around the world, and have even been privileged to play with Carlos Santana, who is very impressed with their musical abilities.

Suzzanna Lubrano – Cape Verde’s Love Songstress

Written by Staff Writer | February 13, 2008 | Leave a Comment

Suzzana Lubrano

Suzzana Lubrano is a great songstress with a soft melodic voice. A quick glance at her, and you would think you are looking at Jennifer Lopez. Her mixture of zouk and r&b blend together to give you a calm, soothing feeling. If you want to turn the heat up on a romantic night, put in one of her cds and it will create the mood! A very talented lady, she writes the songs in Cape Verde Creole (which is close to Portuguese), English, and Dutch.
