Music to my ears

Cambodian-born singer Jimi Lundy (right) will be returning to the country of his birth at the end of the year for a series of concerts to be organised in Phnom Penh and beyond. Keep your eyes peeled in the local Cambodian press for details. Jimi has a new single out very soon and production on his new album will commence in February, after his trip to Cambodia. To watch Jimi's video of his song Cambodia, click here. Next year, Jimi, who now lives in Melbourne, Australia, will begin a new project, a non-profit children's organisation called Children of Cambodia.

Top reggae vocalist and musician, Percydread, has just released a 1,000 limited edition double-A sided 7 inch vinyl single. The two tracks are Father's Love and Dungeon and will be released on CD in due course, on his own Lemonapple Records label. To keep up to speed with Percydread, click here.

Indigo, vocalist with Gabbidon and the duo, Rainy Days and Mondays, is awaiting the birth of her third child at the end of this month, so she's taking a well-earned break from live performances. And with Leonie Moore spending more time performing with Legend, her Bob Marley tribute band, both Gabbidon and Rainy Days are taking a backseat for a while. Gabbidon have recruited two new vocalists to replace the girls.

Finally, a new Yaz Alexander electronic press kit, can be accessed here. On 17 November, Yaz will be performing with her backing singers Black Pearl at 'La Tenda' in Modena, Italy. The eveny is called 'Voice of the Voiceless,' a night of Music, Dance and Art organized by the organization SenzaVoce based in Modena.
