The Preservation Hall Jazz Band has been carrying the distinctive sound of New Orleans jazz around the world on behalf of Preservation Hall, a unique venue that embodies the city's musical legacy. With a cast of musicians schooled through first-hand experience and apprenticeship into the music's historic traditions, the PHJB has served as an irreplaceable, vital link to the earliest days of one of America's most beloved forms of popular music.
The group manages to evoke the spirits of times past in an ever-evolving modern context that has found them traveling around the world. Along the way, they have brought in collaborators of all musical stripes to play, honor, and reinterpret America's first true art form. The PHJB have played and recorded with artists like Tom Waits, Pete Seeger, Ani DiFranco and My Morning Jacket. Their most recent collaboration has been with the Grammy-winning bluegrass outfit, the Del McCoury Band, with whom they released a joint album earlier this year titled American Legacies.
The Louisiana State Museum also just launched a major exhibition celebrating Preservation Hall's 50th anniversary at the Old U.S. Mint. Co-curated by Preservation Hall and the Museum, Preservation Hall at 50, tells the story of the venue's history through artifacts, photographs, film and audio clips, as well as interviews and oral histories. The exhibit is open now and will run through 2012.
"The Suit" was slated to be released by AlgiiRHYTHM during the later half of 2010 but was shelved due to a several month retirement which ensued. However, it had already spawned a catalog of music that is pending to be released as a series of music, rather than as a single album. It also gave birth to an overall concept. The name and direction of the album was derived from the saying "[He] is following suit" which means that [he] is complying with what is deemed to be the "norm" / "protocol" of society. AlgiiRHYTHM's intent was to shed light upon the tendency of the masses to blindly follow unsubstantiated standards. "The Suit" inspired the catch phrase "Get Your Suits Ready" which serves as an arbitrary phrase within itself whenever he uses it.
In brief, AlgiiRHYTHM is coming, so Get Your Suits Ready.
Peace y'all! If you are receiving this, then you or your blog/site has shown love to either myself or my group Panacea in the past and thus I felt compelled to keep you up to date to the latest music we at Neosonic Productions are making.
It's been almost 2 years since myself and Raw Poetic recorded any new music, but we just released this new joint "The Prelude" on Thanksgiving eve to tide fans over till we drop our next full length- Midnight Morning Africa in 2k12.
Also, I posted a tribute song to one of my favorite video game franchises- The Legend Of Zelda up on my Soundcloud page in the form of the following instrumental called "Hero Muzik"; It's to celebrate the 25 year anniversary of the series and it's a FREE DOWNLOAD too!
With 2011 winding down, ZAKEE's recently released and very much genre-bending album, Assimilations, continues to draw critical acclaim, and with that praise, ZAKEE has been offering fans a healthy serving of new content and material. With a remix for "Shadow" still forthcoming, along with a video for "Double Up," ZAKEE is excited to release the latest visual from Assimilations, for the fan-favorite single "Push The Power."

Emcee/producer Yinka Diz presents life from a 'street cosmopolitan' state of mind on New Art, New Money, his new mixtape featuring Glasses Malone, Marky, Nike Nando, Annimean, and producer/rapper Dae One and singer Kree, who both appears on latest single "Done It All", also produced by Dae. Born in Chicago to a mother from the infamous Cabrini Green projects and a Nigerian immigrant father, Yinka was living in the Inland Empire section of Southern California by elementary, and Paris by high school. Soon after his return stateside, he organized and embarked on a 2006 West African tour, which led to his return the following year to take part in the 2007 African Music Awards Showcase. Yinka currently resides in Washington, D.C.
