NEW RELEASE/ Single and videoclip “Dancehall Rapper” by Reddman Uk (Yah man Records Prod.)

The new single and music video “Dancehall Rapper” by ReddMan UK, produced by Morello Selecta for Yah Man Records, gives us one of the deepest sounds of the new year and is accompanied by some of the best views in West London.

As we announced, the scratchy beat was created by the popular DJ and Producer from Salento Morello Selecta and arranged by the virtuous skills of Alessandro Garofalo, historical Italian keyboard player, honorary member of Sud Sound System and Ska Nation Band. The strong voice of the Artist, Reddman UK, spreads a meaningful message for the international Dancehall / Hip Hop musical scene.

“Dancehall Rapper”, song realized by the Salento label, has the aim to retrace the evolution of the musical reproduction, highlighting moments of history and music. Everything started with Audiocassettes, CDs and Mp3s, until the current Era of IG and Youtube. The Artist underlines how each of these instruments  has marked an important part of the global musical history.

The video is directed by Leonardo Urso, who made the viewers fall easily in love with the City for excellence, London City, capturing some magic shootings of a surreal red sky. This song jumps into the analog past to return quickly to the digital present. We could admire in this video the disruptive beauty of nature with the suggestive sunset above the city full of buildings and skyscrapers.

“Dancehall Rapper” is available from June 2nd on all digital platforms and YouTube.

“Salento fuoco e fumo dub novel” / Connubio tra musica e narrazione tratto dal romanzo di Nandu Popu

“Salento fuoco e fumo “è il primo romanzo scritto da Fernando Blasi, in arte Nandu Popu, pubblicato da Laterza nel 2012. Narra la storia di un ragazzo alle prese con le contraddizioni della sua terra: il Salento degli ulivi secolari, del Barocco e delle spiagge, ma anche dell’inquinamento e dei traffici illeciti orditi da politici e dalla Sacra Corona Unita.
Il romanzo riscuote successo soprattutto tra gli ambientalisti, i movimenti militanti, nelle scuole. Ben presto i giovani meridionali si identificano nella lotta e nelle aspirazioni del protagonista Mattia.
Nel 2014 Nandu Popu trasforma il libro in Unplugged Show, un monologo arrangiato da musiche e brani dei Sud Sound System che viene presentato in scuole, teatri e nel corso di molteplici eventi. Da questo incontro live tra musica e narrazione nasce l’idea del progetto “SALENTO FUOCO E FUMO DUB NOVEL”. Nella dub novel, già disponibile su tutte le piattaforme, gli 8 capitoli del libro vengono raccontati dalla voce dell’artista e accompagnati da musiche inedite arrangiate dai musicisti salentini: Marco Rollo alle tastiere, Luca Manno al sax, Papa Leu e Emanuele Pezzuto alla chitarra. Le tracce sono state registrate sotto la supervisione di Luca Bandirali al Mad Vibes Studio Recording e mixate da Altipiani.

BRAND NEW 2020 / “Mama Africa”- Playing for Change ft. Andrew Tosh

“This song was originally written and performed by the late, great Peter Tosh and speaks about the beauty and strength of Africa. We united Peter’s son, Andrew Tosh, with Donald Kinsey and Fully Fullwood who performed with Peter many years ago and added musicians all over the world from Africa to Jamaica to the USA. Turn it up and feel how the heartbeat of Africa resonates through this uplifting song.”-said Playing for Change Management about one of their latest releases.

Released three weeks ago, “Mama Africa” is a unique tribute to the Motherland with the contribution of Andrew Tosh. Join the movement to find out a lot of other unique songs around the World featuring international and street musicians, recording artists such as Stephen Marley, Manu Chao, Bunny Wailers, Bono Vox and many more, but especially follow the humanitarian projects of Playing for Change foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to building music and art schools for children around the world, creating hope and inspiration for the future of the planet.

No matter who you are or where you come from, we are all united through music is the shared vision between PFC co-founders, Mark Johnson and Whitney Kroenke. In 2002 they decided to hit the streets of America with a mobile recording studio and cameras in search of inspiration and the heartbeat of the people. This musical journey resulted in the award-winning documentary, “A Cinematic Discovery of Street Musicians.”

In 2005, Mark Johnson was walking in Santa Monica, California, when he heard the voice of Roger Ridley singing “Stand By Me.” Roger had so much soul and conviction in his voice, and Mark approached him about performing “Stand By Me” as a Song Around the World. Roger agreed, and when Mark returned with recording equipment and cameras he asked Roger, “With a voice like yours, why are you singing on the streets?” Roger replied, “Man I’m in the Joy business, I come out to be with the people.” Ever since that day the Playing For Change crew has traveled the world recording and filming musicians, creating Songs Around the World, and building a global family.
