Giti Pashaei

 Giti Pashaei (Tehran , June 13 , 1948 - Tehran , May 7 , 1995) was an Iranian singer and musician. Her name, Giti means world in original Pahlavi.

She inherited her passion for music from her grandfather, Jafar Mansoori, who was known as a poet and musician. Her early life was spent attending the master-classes of such musicians as Faramarz Paywar, Mahdi Foroogh and Mahmoud Karimi. She continued her education in New York, where she obtained a diploma in architecture and also studied orchestration and harmony and became a composer. Giti was one of the most popular Iranian singers of the late 1960s and 1970s. She became famous with her song "Gol-e Maryam" (The Maria Flower). The Iranian Revolution put an end to her singing career in 1979. Women were forbidden to sing in public. Later on she composed many sound tracks for Iranian movies after the Iranian Revolution in 1979. As a composer, most of the time she worked with her husband Masoud Kimiai, a movie director, whom she married in 1969. In the late 1980s she moved to Hamburg in Germany where she researched Western Church and Baroque music. She died of cancer in Tehran on the 7th May 1995. Her songs and compositions are still heard abroad, particularly in Greece, Syria and Azerbaijan. [Wikipedia]

The Skull Defekts

Skull Defekts live with  Daniel Higgs

With the appearance of a heavily bearded tattooed prophet, Daniel Higgs emerged from the early-'80s hardcore punk scene as an underground icon with a near-mythological status. He sharpened his teeth in the music scene as a wild-eyed vocalist in the legendary Baltimore hardcore group Reptile House. Brewing a dark psychedelic sound with early-'80s hardcore energy and aesthetics, they earned a solid following and a lasting reputation due to debauchery at their live shows. The group disbanded in 1986 and Higgs, who was raised on Yeats and Dylan Thomas, became involved with the Apathy Press poets and started doing open-mic poetry readings. He was introduced to former Null Set bassist John Chriest, who created tape loops for Higgs to play along with his spoken words. One night, the two decided to jam on a whim, and after discovering a strong chemistry, they teamed up with a drummer and guitarist and quickly evolved into a new band.

As the lead singer of the definitive band Lungfish, Higgs' stage presence was part Jim Morrison stream-of-consciousness poetry and part G.G. Allin unbridled lunacy. In his shows, he evoked specters of Franz Kafka and Walt Whitman in his lyrics while performing outrageous shenanigans like rolling his eyes back like a madman and trying to pull his own tongue out, or stabbing himself in the forehead with a safety pin while spouting rants about the Antichrist. Some consider his unabashed freakouts nonsensical; others consider them an art form of the purest kind. After ten records with Dischord, Higgs dabbled in conceptual art, formed a side project with his brother called Cone of Light, and created several books of poetry. His first solo album was recorded in 2006 and released on Holy Mountain and combined minimal meditative hillbilly blues, Eastern mysticism, and lyrics about physical and ethereal demise at the hands of demons. The beautifully packaged Atomic Yggdasil Tarot was released by Thrill Jockey in June 2007, and combines a book of his art and poetry with a CD of abstract lo-fi instrumental drones, with intentions of conjuring a tarot-like force when experienced simultaneously.

Soy Cuba

I am Cuba (Spanish: Soy Cuba; Russian: Я Куба, Ya Kuba) is a 1964 Soviet-Cuban film directed by Mikhail Kalatozov at Mosfilm. The film was not received well by either the Russian or Cuban public[1] and was almost completely forgotten until it was re-discovered by filmmakers in the United States thirty years later.[1] The acrobatic tracking shots and idiosyncratic mise en scene prompted Hollywood directors like Martin Scorsese to begin a campaign to restore the film in the early 1990s.

Africantape Festival 2011

Fondé en 2008, Africantape est le label de Julien Fernandez (batteur de Passe Montagne et de Chevreuil) qui a depuis multiplié les signatures alors que d’autres préfèrent multiplier les pains, au gré des coups de cœur, des rencontres et des amitiés. Au départ de cette aventure, Mitch Cheney du label Sickroom et Frédéric d'Hérouville du label RuminanCe ont donné un sacré coup de main pour la création du label, servant en quelque sorte de starting-blocks. Aujourd’hui, près de trois années plus tard, le line-up d’Africantape est des plus impressionnants, des plus éclectiques et révèle une qualité exemplaire et toujours à la hauteur. D’ailleurs, si on devait donner une idée plus précise de l’esthétique générale du label, on parlerait bien sûr de « rock » mais pas seulement : la recherche, l’expérimentation et l’aventure sont les maîtres mots et les points communs d’autant de groupes et de musiciens formant un catalogue dorénavant bien fourni.

C’est donc tout naturellement que l’idée d’un festival associant l’ensemble de ces groupes et musiciens – plus quelques rajouts de qualité supérieure – a germé au sein de quelques esprits visionnaires et éclairés. Bienvenue à la première Convention Annuelle des Cassettes Africaines qui se déroulera à Lyon les 29 et 30 avril et 1er mai 2011.

An English translation of the above texts? What for?
Because apparently you still haven’t learned French, you lousy Anglophones. You should.

Some music, yes, but for what purpose?
Founded in 2008, AfricanTape is a record label owned by Julien Fernandez (drummer for both Passe Montagne and Chevreuil). This project was started with the help of Mitch Cheney (from Sickroom Records) and Frédéric d’Hérouville (from Ruminance Records) and three years after the first release, AfricanTape’s catalogue is quite impressive and eclectic. The general focus of the label is definitely “rock”, but there are always openings for experimentation, research and adventure, which might be the common denominators to all the bands and musicians from the roster.
The idea of organizing a festival revolving around the AfricanTape’s bands – plus some other kickass acts - was just the next logical step. Welcome to the First Convention of the Cassettes Africaines, that will be held in Lyon on April 29, April 30 and May 1st. []
