Song of the Day: The Invisible Session – People All Around The World Can Make It
The Invisible Session released a new single People All Around The World Can Make It ahead of the premiere of the new album Echoes of Africa, on 29th January 2021 via Space Echo. The Invisible Session’s “People All Around The World Can Make It’’ is a message of hope and encouragement. It's the first release on a newly launched label, funded by Schema Records’ co-founder and musician Luciano Cantone.
The Invisible Session’s influences are rooted in Black music. The album was recorded after long 14 yeard hiatus, all tracks are written in collaboration between Luciano Cantone and trombonist and multi-instrumentalist Gianluca Petrella, and with lyrics by poet, rapper and MC Martin Thomas Paavilainen (aka Benjamin “Bentality” Paavilainen). Echoes of Africa is an homage to African music - a fusion of musical influences that finds force and authenticity in groove and cultural synergies. Drawing influences from the rhythmic structures of Afro-beat and Ethio-jazz, the 11 compositions sparkle in various timbres by incorporating elements of funk, psychedelia, and modal music.
The ensemble features some of the best musicians on the international jazz scene: kora player Jalimansa Haruna Kuyateh, guitarist Riccardo Onori, singer Joyce Elaine Yuille, drummer & percussionist Abdissa “Mamba” Assefa, bassist Jukka ”Jukkis” Kiviniemi.
