'En Voyages' to Pierre Vassiliu, was not only the title of an album of his, but also a philosophy of life. Travels were not for vacation or rest. They were synonyms of meetings, new music and sometimes, simply, life. These experiences around the world nourished his work, and his career allowed him to set foot on every continent. But his most beautiful travels took place in recording studios. When Pierre was discovered by Eddie Barclay, he released an album where mainstream pop, Latin rhythms and Herbie Hancock's 'Headhunters'-inspired jazz-funk were perfectly mixed. Vassiliu switched to RCA, which marked the beginning of his 'African' period. But he became depressed from the music industry after sevral failures. By the beginning of the 2000s, Pierre's recording career seemed to be at a standstill. It took the strength of a handful of fans from his town of Meze to allow a final album to be funded: 'Pierre Precieuses', a blend of Africa, Guadeloupe and Latin America, with an Yves Montand cover, a "techno" track and a folk song. Not long after the release of the album, he was diagnosed Parkinson's disease. Pierre passed away in 2014. CD includes 24-page booklet.

Also available: EN VOYAGES (LP).

CANNIBALE - NO MERCY FOR LOVE

French band Cannibale releases an exciting album that sounds like a surprising -and very psychedelic- mixture of cumbia, African rhythms and garage music. Or, if you will, a kind of missing link between Fela Kuti, The Doors and The Seeds!
