SEE (ELM8023)

Eyedentity are here. Not so much a group as an ever-changing collective consciousness, comprising the talents of 'coming and going' featured artists. In short, an ever-evolving entity, the central nerve centre being The Factor (son of Jazz bassist Walter Booker and the nephew of Jazz saxophonist, Wayne Shorter) and dB (daughter of vocalist Flora Purim and percussionist Airto Moreira).
The combined talent of these artists produced this excellent debut album released in May 2000. Taking trip-hop into unchartered territory 'See' combines a variety of musical flavours and multicultural influences to yield something a little more hop than trip, infusing the genre with a new perspective. Dissolving categorical boundaries and pushing ahead of populist trends Eyedentity are eclectic, infinitely inventive, and with another album in the pipeline definitely one to watch.

Fidel Pondo - Traditional Xhosa meets Cuba
Southern Africa

In 1995, two of the most accomplished percussionists from Cuba joined members of Amampondo to create the first ever Afro-Cuban collaboration in making traditional Xhosa music. Both founding  memebers of Amampondo Dizu Plaatjies and Mzwandile Qotoyi are experts of traditional Xhosa- and African music . Changuito, the Cuban master congalero has a  history with MELT and was  first introduced to the label by Airto Moriera. Also on the album playing Bata Drums is Mayito, leader of the touring latin Jazz group Afro-Cuba.  Fidel Mpondo is in essence inspired by the historic landright battles of the people of South Africa's most beautiful coastal stretch we simply call Pondoland or the Transkei. The album is dedicated to leaders of independance such as Fidel Castro but even more fundamentally to the Clan Chiefs of the Pondoland who successfully resisted the British, the Boers and the apartheid regime in numerous uprisings and rebellions against overwhelming odds. the disc contains a series of great pictures of rural live in the Pondoland.
