Brand new double live album:
Unplugged at the New Orleans

In 2002 Djabe gave concerts on various topics at the New Orleans Music Club in a way that on each night the program was totally different. Altogether the band played more then seven hours (!) of different types of music. On the last two nights unplugged concerts were held. Saïd Tichiti, the Moroccan musician who played on the Update record, joined the concert held on the 19 of November.
The material on the CD covers the full career of the band from the first record of Djabe published in 1996, to Sheafs are dancing, as well as new adaptations and music pieces which have not been played at concerts - lasting in total more than two hours.
The first multimedia CD includes a 14 minutes video from the first performance of the six-member Djabe, recorded in the Vasas Sportshall.
Besides the video a full band biography and discography can be found also on the CD. The visitors of the Unplugged concerts can recall the concerts with a photo album, which contains 50 pictures.

Awesome concerts from Djabe as the introduction of the new record "Sheafs are Dancing"

Djabe, the band with awards of the Golden Giraffe and eMeRTon is giving a great range of concerts at home and abroad. On the concerts the material of their new record "Sheafs are Dancing", which was published this spring, is being performed.

For more than two hours the audience is mesmerised with the clear, quality music performed by Djabe with its music, which is trying to find its way between the borders of world music and jazz. We know Djabe well from its world-class sounding records and DVD's, and visitors can experience this quality sound in live music. The individual music, typical to Hungarian bands, can be heard in Surround 5.1.

The fabulous sound is accompanied by a highly effective light technology, which is supplemented with films and animations on screen all the way through the concert. The projected material is based on the pictures of Imre Égerházi as his pictures gave the inspiration for the records on the album. We can also see a six and a half minute animation made of the pictures from the collection of "Ice world". These pictures are based on the artist's impressions of clinical death that he had personally experienced. Therefore, the visiting audience, certainly does not have an every day experience on these concerts.

Kovács Ferenc - Magony Vonósok
Kovács Ferenc Magony formációjának új, dupla CD-je a hazai lemezkiadás egyik legígéretesebb darabja. A Magony zenekar kortárs parasztbarokk játéka, jazz és world music elemekkel gazdagodott. Az első korongon a Magony zenekar magával ragadó koncertfelvétele hallható. A második CD stúdiófelvételeket tartalmaz, melyek sokszínűsége és műfaji korlátlansága lenyűgözi a hallgatót. Külön csemege, hogy az "Elindultam szép hazámból" című felvételen a teljes Djabe zenekar közreműködik.
