Hindi Zahra @ l' Album de la semaine Canal+ Jan 11th 2010


First gig of 2010 for ROCKERPARIS with World-Folk artist Hindi Zahra @ L' Album de la semaine.

Already saw her a few months ago @ One Shot Not recording in Nov 2009 and opening for Suzanne Vega on june 26th 2007, so I knew what to expect.
After the first 2 slow tempo songs on a reggae rythm I was a bit afraid that the show would be like this all the time but then things started to move a bit more with uptempo songs always with an african "heart" with guitars à la Tinariwen ( from Niger ) or à la music from Mali (homeland of Amadou & Mariam ) but always with a bit of rock.
Really cool set to start the year with.

Tomorrow is the recording of Arte tv show One Shot Not with Natalie Merchant among many other artists.

English Pop/ R&B female singer VV Brown will be playing @ L' Album de la semaine on Jan 18th ( 8:00 Pm )on the same night American indie-rockers Local Natives will be doing a C'est Lenoir Black Session ( 10:00 Pm ).
