Recluse, painful, dreamy, in love, nostalgic, ironic, ludic, tormented, enraged, torn, beaming, wild, Gino Sitson's voice does not let itself stop at the first bark, but transforms itself like a chameleon as it cherishes its liberty and adopts a skin with the colours of tiers, laughters, smiles, cries, the breath of a child, of a lover, of a father, of a wise man, imitating the chipping of a bird, the percussion's drumming, the heart beat, seeking roots, branches, sap, at the dawn of the throbbing and mind blowing land of Africa.
From an interior necessity, Gino's voice is essential and beautiful like the earth, the wind, the fire, the water. It dances, unobtainable like dust in the wind. One loses one's self in it. One discovers one's self in it. One drinks from it. It resources like a mother. Its timber prints itself in us, in spite of us, changing all borders.
"Bamisphere" is Gino Sitson's latest album. This recording is another step in the exploration of the artist as he pushes once more the limits of his creativity. Again he has successfully managed to capture the sounds and rhythm of Africa as well as showing his jazz influences. This moving piece gives a message of peace and tolerance, as well as love and freedom.
