Art Zoyd is a French band formed in 1969. "By the early 80's, Art Zoyd had already gone through over 30 musicians but the core always centered around composer and classically-trained violinist Gérard Hourbette and bassist Thierry Zaboitzeff. ... Despite their lack of a drummer, their material is intensely rhythmic and largely relies on strings, horns and piano. Considered more 'neo-classical chamber' than truly rock, their energy level has the intensity of bands such as Magma and 70's King Crimson, with strong dynamics and atmospheric climaxes."¹
The full-length version of Ceremonie can be found on their 1983 release Les Espaces Inquiets.
Belly takes place underwater, in fantastical settings that half exist in a reality we recognize as our own.

On Oct. 9, 2012, Malala was on a bus returning home from school "when she was shot in the head by a gunman from the Taliban, which had earlier banned girls from going to school in Pakistan’s Swat Valley, where Malala lived.... Malala has just released her memoir, titled 'I am Malala,' a phrase that has been invoked around the world as a symbol for the right of girls to be educated. Now 16, she sat down with Jon Stewart on 'The Daily Show' to talk about her journey. The part of the interview that is getting a lot of attention is her answer to his question about what she would do if a Taliban gunman approached her again. The Taliban has, in fact, said it would target her again if it got the chance." [The Washington Post http://goo.gl/awqzbm].

When artist David Jablow was given a vintage novelty doodle pad with the suggestive outline of a seemingly nude woman ... he drew what anyone would draw: a giant radioactive archaeopteryx brandishing its terror-stricken human prey over the shrieking maws of its triple-headed baby. On another page from the same doodle-pad, a “Were-squirrel” chases down Mr. Peanut. Such scenarios are typical within the dazzlingly weird, dazzlingly effed-up “Do it yourself project”..-Hal Parker (Philadelphia Weekly)
Djeli Moussa Diawara was born to a family of griots in Kankan (Guinea) in 1962. His father is a balafon player, his mother is a backing singer while his half-brother is Mory Kanté.
