The Reggae&Rock&Roll circus JAMARAM is ON THE ROAD again! Twelve years of JAMARAM with 7 LPs and over 1,000 live shows clocked up in Germany, Europe and the rest of the world – and no end in sight! The gig monsters of the south of Germany are hitting the road again with their new album »LA FAMILLE« (release 12th Octobre 2012 Soulfire Artists/Rough Trade) and looking forward to a wild escalation of clubbing with their fans.
Even with their seventh! album »LA FAMILLE« and interminable road trips behind them, it's hard to fit the close-knit circus family JAMARAM into any neat music genre. Branching out from the basic Reggae canon »LA FAMILLE« has Ska&Rocksteady (Lonely/Track 2, La Famille, Miniature Walrus, Babylon), Pop&Rock&Latino styles (Solid As A Rock/ Track 7, Turn On The Lights, Wasting Time, Slow), Singer/Songwriting (Hard To Hold On To/ Track 4, Plant Song, Hold On, Try Try Try) and naturally something ecstatic (Hey, Sweet Madelaine). For these 14 tracks, mostly recorded live, the band and their long-standing producer UMBERTO ECHO were aiming at an organic, earthy sound with minimal extra effects. All the songs should work one-to-one in concert without a safety net. The result is an astoundingly multifaceted long-player with new and undreamt of soundworlds from the JAMARAM Universe. As drummer Murxen Alberti puts it: "... some tracks on the new album are a bit softer at the corners than you'd expect for a Jamaram live show. We've left ourselves more time for nuances and still moments and out of that, Jamaram is developing a new force of its very own.
