Anna Maria Jopek - 2008 - Jo & Co

Anna Maria Jopek is as Polish as one can be – not only with her gentle beauty, but first of all with her music, coming straight from the heart. Yet her latest project features a bunch of true giants from around the world. The Brazilian bossa nova genius Oscar Castro Neves meets serene ECM recording pianist from Norway Tord Gustavsen. An exotic voice of Tunesian oud virtuoso and vocalist Dhafer Youssef blends with brave and adventurous notes of Branford Marsalis’ soprano saxophone. Richard Bona‘s trademak Douala vocals and bass lines coexist with sensual French singing by percussion wizard Mino Cinelu. Manu Katche and Christian Mc Bride provide powerful grooves… yet then there is this amazing, sophisticated vocal (in fact – about a zillion of them so carefully layered!) by Anna Maria that makes it all work. That makes this dialogue of such different cultures not only possible, but fascinating to observe. That makes this music unique, one of the kind. Personal.
‘All these people have been my inspiration for the last decade – Anna Maria says humbly. It’s an amazing experience to have finally met them, to exchange energies and ideas, to learn from them and – hopefully – to create some original music with them in mind. I am Polish. I come from the vast meadows of central Poland, I’ve been brought up with its musical traditions, but it does not make my ID complete. Especially now, with the world getting so much smaller every single day. I truly believe that the new music might emerge from coexistance of so many so different voices, influences, traditions, religions. By far – this is the most important work I’ve ever done.’
In Poland ID went Platinum in just two weeks. The triumphant tour, featuring Dhafer Youssef, Mino Cinelu and Richard Bona followed with sold out venues and standing ovations. Parts of these events eventually turned into an adventurous live album in the fall of 2008, entitled Jo & Co. It went Gold on the spot. It was not, however, her first experience with the world-class masters and musical heroes. She’s been known for probably the most influential and groundbreaking project in Polish popular music.

Djivan Gasparyan & Erkan Ogur - 2001 - Fuad

Before the heart, there was time. Then the miracle occured. The heart came into being. With the command, the beat began. The first blow and the substance shakes with “Fuad” the inital moment of life where movement is born.
“Fuad” is power, sound and rhthym. The heart begins life zealously, beating fast… Speeds up, slows down ; gets high, gets down. Desire, fear, love, joy, sorrow, music,ecstacy, shock, fatigue, attack, disease, halt and restart.

Then a signal to the substance, and comes the moment of ceascing… “”Fuad””. From the minute infinity to the magnanimous one, from nothing to being, “Fuad” commences the universe. There, neither the first nor the last can be defined. Absolute being is the sole reality. Before the heart, the moment of the heart, after the heart; this is the question. There are moments when the heart is broken, that’s the instance that break “Fuad”. The happiest moment of the heart is “Fuad”. It sees, hears, touches, tastes, smells, loves, discerns, feels with “Fuad”. And we think with “Fuad”.

The talent we have and the talents we can never discover are “Fuad”. Logic is formed at the heart, and might be cruel or loving as granted. “Fuad” is in the service of matter, whether human or not, known or unknown, and whether will be discovered, be it living or non-living. Yearning for “Fuad” is a gift to the dreams of humanity.
