Vainqueur en 2009 du « European Reggae contest » au Rototom Sunsplash en Italie, la mèque du reggae européen, devant près de 500 autres groupes du continent, le suisse emballe un public grandissant. Il tourne depuis 2009 sur les gros festival européens. Il continue à séduire un public bien plus large que les amateurs de reggae.

JUNIOR TSHAKA a déjà un important bagage et un solide réseau de fans qui est entrain de se constituer depuis quelques années dans toute la France. En Suisse Romande, il n’est plus nécessaire de le présenter. Très actif depuis le début des années 2000, il joue également beaucoup en Suisse Allemande et prouve donc que la langue n’est pas un barrage au partage de sa musique!

Son premier vrai album solo, “La Jungle”, avait été produit par Mike de Sinsemilia en 2007. A ce moment, Junior Tshaka avait alors écumé toute la France en première partie de Riké. Il a également de nombreuses attaches africaines, plus particulièrement au Sénégal où il se rend régulièrement.

En 2009, il sort “Il est temps…” sur le label Damp-Music en Suisse. L’album sera très apprécié plusieurs morceaux tournent encore à l’heure actuelle sur plusieurs radios (“Des Humains”, “La vie est un cadeau”, “Le Monde est un grand village”)

Junior Tshaka est un artiste charismatique qui distille un reggae militant et rassembleur qui plait autant au aficionados du reggae qu’à un public plus large. Il ramène à l’essentiel et avec des mots simples ses convictions sur l’état de la planète. Il chante des valeurs universelles qu’il semble hélas nécessaire de rappeler sans cesse. Pas idéalistes ni naïf mais conscient et lucide, il touche un public grandissant un peu partout. Un courant rare et magique passe lors de ces concerts et Junior Tshaka emballe en Espagne comme en Pologne, sur des grandes scènes de festival autant que dans de petits théâtres.

Peace & respect !!

Swiss singer & songwriter – Bastian Baker - heidi.com ADDICTED !!

Just one single, «Lucky» (was it a premonition?) played over and over by Swiss radio stations was all it needed for Bastian Baker’s name to be on the tip of everyone’s tongue, as well as his catchy ballads.  Practically unknown in January 2011, in the space of just a few months he managed to conquer the public, the media and even Claude Nobs, head of the Montreux Jazz Festival. He has been a total success, since his first concert at the 2011 Caprices Festival in front of 3,000 enthusiastic spectators to his appearance on the Off stage at Montreux. Everyone recognised his charisma, his angelic looks and his talent. It was the start of the Bastian Baker phenomenon. However, this 20-year-old singer songwriter has not let success go to his head. On the contrary, he is realistic and says “I don’t want to be just a fad!”

His first album «Tomorrow May Not Be Better», recorded in Paris with the very best English musicians and mixed at the Philippe Weiss studio, came out on 9 September 2011, was # 1 on Swiss iTunes sales from the first day and soared to the top of the charts (# 3 as soon as it came out in Switzerland). His songs are great mixture of pop-folk and sometimes rock sounds, and the album was so successful with the public and the critics, it became a Gold record in barely four months. After 2011 which finished on a high at Zurich’s Hallenstadion, where the singer performed in front of 13,000 people as the opener for the Roxette concert, 2012 already promises to be a good year. With winning a Swiss Music Award, his album coming out in France this spring, a song recorded for the Swiss Davis Cup team and a song in the works with the producer of the rapper Stress…. There’s no denying Bastian Baker, nominated their 3rd favourite celebrity by the Swiss, is here to stay!

Sometimes we have good luck and you see him with heidi.com clothes, maximum R.E.S.P.E.C.T to him and Raphael his manager!!
