Fatoumata Diawara gathers Malian super-group to record 'Mali - Ko' (Peace / La Paix)

In response to the situation in Mali, World Cicuit artist Fatoumata Diawara has gathered together over 40 of Mali’s most renowned musicians in a studio in Bamako to record a song and video calling for peace.

Known collectively as 'Voices United for Mali' the group includes Amadou and Mariam, Oumou Sangare, Bassekou Kouyate, Vieux Farka Toure, Djelimadi Tounkara, Toumani Diabate, Khaira Arby, Kasse Mady Diabate, Baba Salah, Afel Bocoum, Tiken Jah, Amkoullel and Habib Koite amongst many others. The track is titled ‘Mali-ko’ (Peace / La Paix)

"The Malian people look to us,” the 30-year old said earlier this week. “They have lost hope in politics. But music has always brought hope in Mali. Music has always been strong and spiritual, and has had a very important role in the country, so when it comes to the current situation, people are looking to musicians for a sense of direction.”

Fear Factory

Fear Factory release 'The Industrialist' on AFM for Europe

Fear Factory’s innovative approach to and merging of industrial, death and alternative metal has had an impact on metal music since the release of their first album in 1992. The band is cited as an influence by many artists - from Machine Head, Chimaira, Spineshank, Disturbed, Static-X and Coal Chamber to contemporary bands like Mnemic, Scarve, Stiff Valentine, Sybreed, Threat Signal or Hypocrisy, who have all credited the band with inspiration. And in a recent interview, Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward stated Fear Factory is one of the bands he wishes he could play with.

We’ll see - for now, Burton C. Bell and Dino Cazares are back and touring the world with a new rhythm section - former Chimaira guitarist Matt DeVries on bass and Mike Heller on drums.

'The Industrialist' continues Fear Factory’s concept of men vs. machine and the slavery of society at the hands of technology - from the perspective of the machine of course.



Firewater Video 'A Little Revolution'

New album by Ex Cop Shoot Cop frontman Tod A on Nois-o-lution

Since leaving NYC for immersion in global music and culture in 2005, Firewater’s music brings together Klezmer, Balkan, Ska and Indian music to a “new new world order where the rock and roll revolution has a multicultural rank and file”.

Tod's work in turn influenced Balkan punk alternative bands like Gogol Bordello and Balkan Beat Box, which both feature ex-Firewater members. “As an East European musician I must say that Tod A wrote some great songs using East European musical idiom,” said Gogol Bordello front man Eugene Hutz. “He’s responsible for some great innovative hybrids.” (Quotes from Wall Street Journal review).

Tod meanwhile lives in Istanbul when not on tour. “The city ist fascinating. It’s a melting pot – a lot like NYC. And with the revolutions going on all around, I knew we should record here.”
