Freedonia hailin’ from Spain
The Madrid group was born in 2006 and what began as an adventure of friends was growing until it became a authentic musical rumble that constantly hangs on poster “sold out” and manages to be Trending Topic in Spain.
Debut album Dignity and Freedom
Title song “Dignity and Freedom” is a classic soul ballad in style of James Brown. When your lost, looking for hope and in search of soul and feeling blue, this is the song to listen! Furthe you should listen to “Its Gonna Be Fine” and “I Don’t Nerd You”, these songs show the story Freedonia is trying to tell very well. Curtis Mayfield and people at Stax Records would appreciatie this music.
NEW ALBUM: SHENOBI
Under the title of Shenobi, Freedonia launches her third job record, a double album with 20 tracks.
Funny about the recording proces is the fact it’s recorded analog and handmade until getting an organic sound, raw and unique.
Mix of English and Japanese
Shenobi is a mix of English and Japanese, She (she in English) and Nobi (growth in Japanese). On this album you Will hear more organisatie and electriciteit sounds. The soul however remains like you’d expect from Freedonia.
Shenobi’s songs sound on the soundtrack of the documentary Eva’s apple, directed by José Manuel Colón and with which it is intended to raise awareness about genital mutilation feminine
