Everyone knows ‘Higher Love’, the 1986 hit by Steve Winwood and Will Jennings. It’a a formidable song to cover, and yet, Chicago born, New York raised Malou Beauvoir gives it her best shot, and hits the mark. Meanwhile, Kamoken, aka Cheff Loncher, and Chico Boyer, an activist and community leader, as well as the owner of Kamoken Studios, provide the instrumentation required for Beauvoir to realise her vision for ‘Higher Love’. Kamoken are signed to Beauvoir’s Panthera Music International label, through which she promotes modern Haitian music and art. ‘Higher Love’ is the first single from Malou Beauvoir’s new album.
Steve Holley has been a fan of Adelmo Fornaciari Cavaliere di Gran Croce, aka Zucchero, for many years, and recently had the honour of speaking to him, in the midst of his ‘Wanted’ World tour, which commences June 30. Zucchero will also be performing at the Cornbury Festival, in Oxfordshire, on July 13.
