TRIBAL JAM - Démarre le Show

Album: Démarre le Show (France- 1997)

[FRA]Il faut dire ce qui est. La scène soul/R'n'B française était quasi inexistante au milieu des années 90 alors que le rap français regorgeait de cinquantaine d'artiste au même moment. Quand Tribal Jam est arrivé ça sonnait un peu comme un miracle. En plus d'être un groupe de R'n'B français, leur musique était de qualité. Regardez le r'n'B français d'aujourd'hui et osé venir me dire que c'est mieux que Tribal Jam!lol!

[ENG] We must tell the truth. The french Soul/R'n'B music was almost nonexistent in the mid 90s while the French rap artists and groups come from all area of France at the same time. When “Tribal Jam” happened, it sounded like a miracle. In addition to being a group of French R'n'B, their music was quality. Listen the French R'n'B of 21th century and dared to tell me that it’s better than Tribal Jam! lol!

This is an absolutely awful photo of us. But fuck it! It was just so much fun and I wanted to share it with you :)))

Today we had a photoshoot with our fav photographer in the most gorgeous place with the most amazing set. And, well, we were pretty damn good.

There were some instruments and the whole idea of “a sexy orchestra” is kinda impro, but such a fun impro!

Well, I am that girl with a freaking heavy saxophone :) My arms are still a bit hurting…


Gesaffelstein…let me sleep dawg.

Watch: Wei Zhongle - “Fortunate 2”

Take Blueberry Boat, mix it with Here Comes The Indian, add a dash of NIPOMO, and you’ve got that Wei Zhongle sound for “Fortunate 2.” And this video is hilari too. Totally syncopating this post-kosmische tribal jam with varying bodies being rhythms, images in hats, and OMG the rain. I can’t stop. Transferal of energies into the unknown. Figures and fires and leafy greens. Unforeseeable directions. I’m not even sure if I’m writing about the music anymore, or the video.

Wei Zhongle drops their newest album Nu Trance this April 21 on LP via Hairy Spider Legs and on CS and digital via NNA Tapes. Scope their video above and keep your eyes peeled for the real!
