SEYNI & YELIBA  - PROFILE:

Singer: Seyni & Yeliba
Location: Guinea Conakry/France
Genre: Reggae


Biography:
SEYNI & YELIBA (Guinea Conakry/France) defines itself as a Mandingue Reggae group.
Pioneer of a mix between Jamaican Reggae and Guinean Balafon, Seyni calls naturally his music Reggae Yankadi (Yankadi being a traditional Guinean rhythm meaning «It’s nice here»).

His music - a real intercontinental journey - that Seyni sings either in French or his mother tongue (Soussou) or father tong (Malinké) and sometimes in English, captivates a wide audience, seduced altogether by his unique melodies and the extraordinary energy he delivers on stage!

With a 7th album produced as singer-songwriter-composer, Seyni totals over 600 concerts throughout Europe as well as on the most famous festival stages Reggae and World Music. He received the Web Reggae Awards 2009 for his album Mon Général.
With both parents griots, it is first within his family that Seyni learns the basics of his art, in the purest African tradition (besides mastering balafon, his father shall pass him his love and practice of guitar) ; however, due to his strong personality, Seyni gets interested at a very young age by the sounds of Reggae, especially through Bob Marley (and inherited promptly of the nickname «Bob»).
Still very young (just turned 17), he decides to move to Ivory Coast, where he starts his carrier as a percussionist for Mory KANTE.

Then Souleymane Koly, a compatriot and manager of the prominent group « Kotéba d’Abidjan », recruits him. This is when he becomes a complete artist: on top of mastering balafon and guitar, he sharpens his practice of percussions, singing, dancing and as a theater actor. Souleymane Koly senses very soon his strong creative potential and entrusts him with the musical composition of a number of his plays.
It is in that context that he plays and composes for Claude CADIOU’s film, « La Vie Platinée », where his gives the lines to Mamady KEITA, a Guinean percussionist who became famous, and where some of his partitions are interpreted by another very famous artist: Salif KEITA.
It is also and finally on the Ivorian territory that he records his first album « Mousso Ko » (1987, which unfortunately got stuck «in Kotéba’s drawers»).

 Seyni decides to settle in France in 1989. He picks Angoulême (a town he got to know during the numerous worldwide tours with the Kotéba group of Abidjan). There he forms his first group, « BDM » -Black Dance Music- with whom he records his first album in France:
« Allah Nikki» («What God gives you»).

A few years later, we find him along the Garonne river, in Bordeaux. In 1997, Some Style Band from Bordeaux joins him and he records the album « Nana » (first name of his mum).
Then he forms the group « Rootsaba » which shall produce - thanks to Otis M’BAYE - the album  « Limaniya » (« Courage and Humility ») on which partitions Manu DIBANGO does not hesitate to add his saxo (on the title « Faniko »). He bolsters his international fame with this group.

In 2003, Seyni forms another group named Seyni & Yeliba, bringing together musicians from various horizons, all gathered around a common love for Reggae.
This complicity leads to the birth of 3 CDs : «N’tara» (Big Brother), a compilation with Music’action and Mosaïc in 2003, the live album « Liberté » in 2005 with Soulbeats Records and Nocturne and finally the «2008 favorite» «Mon général » an album with VMusic, directly inspired of the hot topics then of actuality in Guinea.

Successfully going through these milestones, Seyni falls victim of a serious road accident in 2009, which forces him to put his international career in stand-by. He goes back to square one and spares no effort to get back on his feet as soon as possible.
This committed artist cannot stand by and watch the events occurring in Guinea on 28 September 2009 (a bloody military repression) ; despite being convalescent, he teams up with two compatriots, Bill de Sam and Alpha Wess, to speak out against these exactions with a single « Manguè Wulé Falè » (president liar), so appreciated by the Guinean public that it soon becomes a popular mobile phone ring !
Whilst the presidential elections are under preparation in Guinea in 2015, Seyni comes back with 2 new titles « My Roots » and « Conakry » and gathers a new group: Seyni and Yeliba. With this composition, the author call the Guinean people of all origins not to give into the split the politics wish to impose.  Seyni wishes that his country be a whole and indivisible nation.

In the title « Conakry », his griot soul questions: How is it possible in the eve of the XXIst century, that some citizens of the capital city still cannot access to electricity and drinkable water?! Even though this city is geographically indexed as the water tower of West Africa.... With this latest title, he wishes to raise awareness of the Guinean leaders.

NATTY JEAN - PROFILE:

Singer: Natty Jean
Location: Senegal / France
Genre: Reggae / Urban Afro

Biography:
NATTY JEAN is coming straight from Senegal where he started singing on hip-hop stages with and local productions. He was quickly attracted by reggae music and its swaying rhythms that he started to mix with hiphop and African influences like DIDIER AWADI (from DAARA J FAMILY) for example who invited him on his last album (MA REVOLUTION, 2012). A choice which drop him into MANJUL’s studios: the famous French producer based in Mali (Dub To Mali, Danakil, Takana Zion, Bishop…) had produced his first album SANTA YALLA (2012). And this is where he met with DANAKIL’s members too who immediately identified his singular voice and invited him on their ECHOS DU TEMPS album and tour.

Now NATTY JEAN is a full member accompanying the singer Balik and the 9 musicians on the most beautiful scenes over the world (Francofolies de La Rochelle, Olympia and Zénith de Paris, Paléo Festival, or les Francofolies de Montréal). An occasion for providing its tracks during the shows and get a faithful audience.

This autumn NATTY JEAN will return with a new album: IMAGINE (Baco Records), an explicit title traducing his wish to bring some hope from Africa. Wrote in Wolof French and English his lyrics offer a view on West African youth: its concerns, dreams and hope far from sordid clichés. Engaged and concerned like his Elders TIKEN JAH FAKOLY or ALPHA BLONDY NATTY JEAN is defending a strong Africa convinced she has all she needs to grow by herself.

He’s talking about serious and very actual thematic like immigration. On « On M’a Dit » he tells us about how Europe became a distant and dangerous dream for young Africans. With « Imagine » he’s speaking about migrants’ so painful journey running thousands of kilometres to save their life and families.

Sad to see his brothers leaving Africa for countries which don’t want them NATTY JEAN campaigned for more humanity return to the native land and for a reconstruction of Africa by the Africans full of hope and talent. Produced by YOVO M’BOUEKE (Alain Bashung, Alpha Blondy, Rachid Taha, Amadou & Mariam...), mixed by GODWIN LOGIE (Bob Marley, Steel Pulse, Ismael Lo...) with the master CHEICK TIDIANE SECK on arrangements (Salif Keita, Mory Kanté, Jimmy Cliff, Carlos Santana…), BORIS from DANAKIL and MANJUL on composition and DIDIER AWADI, VIVIANE CHIDID or GASTON’s voices, this new album puts back African reggae in the centre of the stage. With urban Afro Roots sonorities tracks are rhythmed by the NATTY JEAN’s beautiful voice who can sing and rap with strength and accuracy.
