The second album of
Sarazino on Cumbancha Records will be released this coming May
22nd. The album titled Everyday Salama is a great collection
of songs and rhythms all melted in one pot.Sarazino is the
brainchild of Lamine Fellah, a musician, songwriter, and
producer whose nomadic life is reflected in the multicultural
influences in his songs.
What kind of music would
come from a person who was born the son of a diplomat in
Algeria, raised in various European and West African
countries, educated in Montreal and has called Quito, Ecuador
home for the last ten years? While the answer might surprise
you, it certainly won't disappoint -Sarazino's music takes an
exotic array of ingredients, throws them into a musical pot
and the result is spicy, a feast for the senses that leaves
you wanting more.
Fellah is a true child of a globalized world, and Sarazino's
music draws on reggae, Latin and African grooves, Arabic music
and catchy, international pop to create an upbeat celebration
of the diverse world we all share.
For his second Cumbancha album, Everyday Salama, Sarazino
invited an exciting selection of special guests from Jamaica,
Nigeria, Brazil, Peru, the US, Sierra Leone and more. Everyday
Salama features appearances by Sabina Sciubba, from New York,
Indy-rock Brazilian Girls, Afro Peruvian electronica pioneers
Novalima, African superstars Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars,
Jamaica's leading young reggae band Rootz Underground, Spanish
mestizo singer Amparo Sanchez (Amparanoia), and Brazilian
singer and composer Luisa Maita, among others. For the first
single "Es mi Momento", Sarazino features rapper Niyo Pumpin
and created an excellent song that sticks in your head.
The album is scheduled to be released on May 22nd, and it will
surely help bring even wider global recognition to this
exciting talent. The US tour that will include festivals and
other exciting appearances will be announced shortly.
