1)The 6 punchy musicians of Alma, fond of exchanges, poetry and cultural mixing, combine dub reggae with some furious salsa cubana. As soon as they met, the musicians of Alma passed a silent agreement: let nothing get in the way of their pleasure to make music, and always express their love for all styles of music. They learned to appreciate and develop the most groovy reggae rhythms, and to mix them with a strong dose of salsa. The addition of electro riffs and dub effects gives to their style a definite modern twist. 2)Swedish duo that released their debut album, For Loved Ones and Lost Ones in September 2001 through their own independent label, Peaton Records. 3)German alternative band from Korbach, Nordhessen. 4)Russian electronic project (AlmA). 5) La Ex-vocalista del grupo mexicano F.A.S.E. quien está preparando su album como solista, ha tenido el sencillo "Infierno" y canciones filtradas por la red como "Ladrón de Discos" y "El Silencio" 6) Alma is making her debut in the Midwest US music scene. With carefully crafted lyrics atop summery melodies, Alma sidesteps the shallow musings of many of her pop singer contemporaries without sacrificing the catchy hooks. Her soulful voice carries tunes about love and faith, challenging her generation to rethink their self-perceptions and cultural conventions. 7) Austrian band, blending traditional and contemporary Austrian folk and popular music.
