Johannes Hopfner joins the bill at 2013 Open World Forum in Paris

As a sponsor of the 2013 Open World Forum, Jamendo has chosen Paris-based artist Johannes Hopfner to perform at the event, dedicated to Free and Open source technologies and gathering thousands of visitors in Paris every year.

 

The concert is scheduled for OCTOBER 4TH (THIS FRIDAY) AT 7PM. Be there!


A talented songwriter, Hopfner draws from a pure, powerful energy to create effective melodies, carried by a subtle and moderated play, and just the right amount of spleen and sincerity to bring us closer to our emotions. 





Jamendo has also provided the official jingle for the event, thanks to Plastic3 who won the OWF Jingle Contest.

France and Germany's main railway companies partner with Jamendo to celebrate Music Day.






France and Germany's main railway companies SNCF and Deutsche-Bahn are partnering with Jamendo to celebrate Music Day, by organizing unique concerts in high-speed trains. In the bar section of several trains from France to Germany, musicians will set up this Friday and play an acoustic show to entertain the travelers.

We gave a good help by providing 3 of our French artists. They are used to playing on stage, but this kind of "moving" stage will be a first for everyone!



Midem artists The Dada Weatherman (folk, rock, blues)
Jonathan, aka The Dada Weatherman, is a young musician from the Paris area, who first appeared on Jamendo back in 2008. Five albums later, he finds himself quite successful on the platform with more than 2 million listens and about 100,000 downloads. His music is a great mix of bluesy rock, smart pop and ethereal folk. A brilliant multi-instrumentist, he is also the mastermind behind the jazz-pop project Law'.
See him play on June 21st on the #9582 train from Marseille to Frankfurt!

Midem artists Benoit Stanek (pop, folk, chanson)
Originally from the North-West of France and now settled in Lyon, Benoit Stanek is a pure French pop and folk addict, that also proves to be a good songwriter in English and Spanish. His style is full of sincerity, and draws comparisons to artists like Georges Brassens, Ray Lamontagne ou Damien Rice.

See him play on June 21st on the #9582 train going from Marseille to Frankfurt (after Lyon)!

Midem artistsOmashay (rock, fusion)
This young guy from the north of France is already known on Jamendo as the sax player of goofy geniuses Cool Cavemen. He takes a successful leap aside from the band with a solid first solo album full of nice fusion-rock tunes that he entirely recorded himself. He will perform in the train with Damien, fellow guitar player from Cool Cavemen.
See him play on June 21st on the #9577 train going from Paris to Stuttgart, and back from Strasbourg to Paris on train #9570!

AXIAL, importateur atypique d’electro minimal tropical underground de São Paulo

AXIAL est le résultat des travaux du producteur Felipe Julián et de la chanteuse Sandra Ximenez. Dès l’origine, en 2003, ils utilisent la technologie comme un moyen de produire un son d’appréciation facile mais de définition difficile : trip hop, electro-rock, musiques du monde sont des termes qui aident à définir ce son hyper-sensoriel des représentations du duo qui se rend en France avec leur groupe.

Pour Felipe Julián, le Brésil est un pays d’une facilité toute particulière pour l’appropriation libre et créative de la technologie. C’est cela qu’AXIAL présente, à sa manière, sur scène. Certaines des appropriations qui aident à créer la scénographie sonore du projet AXIAL sont représentées par des échantillonneurs contrôlés aux pieds, des synthétiseurs à bouche, des capteurs piezo traités en temps réel et qui impliquent le public dans une atmosphère qui va de l’onirique au dansant.

Face à ce méli-mélo de tessitures, la voix «douce et expérimentée» de Sandra Ximenez, chanteuse disposant d’un long parcours de recherche au sein de la musique traditionnelle brésilienne. Conjointement à son autre projet musical, le groupe A Barca, Sandra a de nombreuses fois parcouru le Brésil pour interagir avec les musiques traditionnelles populaires et apprendre les subtilités de la création musicale brésilienne.
Le répertoire et les expériences recueillies au cours de ces voyages sont à l’origine de l’inquiétude de créer une musique nouvelle à partir des traditions anciennes. Le résultat est représenté par le lancement de trois disques qui ont été très bien accueillis par la critique spécialisée indépendante.

Dès son premier album, AXIAL utilise Internet comme principale plateforme de distribution. Il est reconnu comme étant l’un des précurseurs de l’utilisation de Creative Commons au Brésil. C'est donc naturellement que Jamendo entre dans la danse, et permet au groupe de réunir près de 200 000 écoutes.
