My Baby this weekend playing hard @ Magneetfestival en Uitmarkt

My Baby’s aim is to put you under her spell, fall into her voodoo trance and she’ll command you to sing and dance or you’ll turn to stone!

The native ground of My Baby is not the Dutch soil, but the muddy banks of the Mississippi delta. Singer Cato van Dijck (ex-The Souldiers) and her two companions take you under their spell with a musical trip through time, filled with country blues, gospel, folk and a bit of voodoo magic. All ingredients together lead to a powerful potion of indie-funk and Louisiana dub. Their demo impressed legendary bass player Larry Graham, who invited them to play with him during his Dutch tour and on national television show De Wereld Draait Door. Their debut album ‘Loves Voodoo!’ was released in November 2013 through Embrance Recordings. The new year started with a showcase at Noorderslag followed by an extensive tour through New Zealand, Australia and the USA
Kom aanstaande zaterdag kijken en luisteren op het Magneetfestival bij de Magneetbar om 1700uur of op de Uitmarkt op het ABN AMRO podium van 2300/2330uur

Albumpresentatie Mr. Marshall by Aïscha Traïdia aanstaande dinsdag in Paradiso

fb banner2 small

Vol trots presenteert Aïscha haar eerste album ‘Mr. Marshall’ op 29 april 2014 in Paradiso, Amsterdam. In samenwerking met Embrace Recordings is vanaf deze datum ‘Mr. Marshall’ zowel digitaal als in de winkels verkrijgbaar.

Vanaf haar twintigste speelde zij in muzikale theaterstukken en toerde drie jaar lang samen met haar oom langs de Nederlandse schouwburgen. In die tijd maakte zij ook choreografieën; ondermeer voor het theaterstuk “Vuur” (met Egbert Jan Weber en Teun Kuilboer). Vier jaar geleden stond zij in het voorprogramma van Boy George in de Panama. Dit alles smaakte naar meer en zij ontwikkelde haar muzikale passie, daarbij geïnspireerd door o.a. Janelle Monae, Radiohead en Bob Marley.

Op haar 23e vertrok zij naar NewYork waar zij auditie deed voor Hofstra University (vocal Jazz). Eenmaal aangenomen raakte zij in contact met Black Spade, drummer Daru Jones en Coultrain waar zij mee samenwerkte. Heimwee naar Nederland deed haar besluiten om terug te keren.

Samen met Mark van Bruggen (o.a. Dotan), Isa Azier (o.a. Qeaux Qeaux Joans) en Maarten Kooymans schrijft zij een mooie mix van pop-, rock- en soul songs voor haar debuutalbum “Mr. Marshall”. Haar emoties en verhalen weet ze op een overtuigende manier over te brengen met haar pakkende liedjes.

Het album is opgenomen in de Electric Monkey studio (o.a. Caro Emerald) door Kasper Frenkel. Niemand minder dan Bob Ohlsson (o.a. Marvin Gaye) tekent voor de mastering.
