At only 3 years old Tony Valor started learning from his father, a famed musician. Sure, he was just sitting under the console in his Dad’s studio, but it certain rubbed off. Part Colombian, Chinese, and Sicilian, Valor’s aim is to reach the world with his music, and his latest song, ‘D’Nah Nah (Shaky Bum Bum)’ (Ft. Zuka) with its irresistable rhythm, seems certain to be a surefire hit.
Nahko is best known as the front man for the world music collective, Medicine For The People. His first solo work, ‘My Name Is Bear’ is in essence a prequel to his work with the People, and comprises 16 tracks of music and “interludes”, mostly written between the ages of 18 and 21, with some a little later. The interludes are actual unedited tape recordings of his raw thoughts. The end result is a pleasing insight into the mind of a very thoughtful and wise man.
