Press Release –
She is beautiful, sensual, captivating! And starting today, you will never forget her name: Oriana!
This is the stunning new Zèklè , written and composed by a powerful, expressive, in top form Joël Widmaier. Indeed : the drummer-singer inspiration is more surprising than ever!
The group that had turned upside down the established order in the Haitian music in the early 80s, is now back on stage with an ambitio and a new invigorated management team “Zèklè Productions LLC,” based in Florida. Driven by the relentless tandem Mushy Widmaier and Fabrice Rouzier on keyboards with the multiple Andy Barrow’s guitars, the first song pushes the limits of Haitian popular music to new horizons, red fever and passion.
Oriana! was recorded in four different studios in Haiti and Miami, mixed by Andy, Joel and Mushy at Meridian, before being “mastered” at the famous Sterling Sound in New York by Will Quinella, reknowed for his work with Fat Joe, Nelly Furtado, Amy Winehouse and Rihanna, among others. That says it all!
Available soon on iTunes, Amazon.com and CD Baby, the original version of Oriana!, the tube snapshot of the new season, will soon be followed by a “House Mix” and the all new Zèklè album with even more explosive and innovative tunes, is expected in December 2011, according to Raoul Denis Jr., executive producer of the group.
Oriana! marks the return of the Phoenix. Dreamlike, furious, fascinating, like the female character it describes, this new Zèklè creation, the first one for 17 years, is going to make the headlines and will be part of history as did Pil ou Fas, Anyway and Adje, the “New Generation” group’s flagship
Urgent as the desire, the songl that culminates in a “furious rara” has the power that moves mountains and allows Haitian artists to overcome the worst obstacles.
Listen …Oriana! is yours.
