Electronic producer Kadebostan set out to take the world by storm with his brand new project, The National Fanfare of Kadebostany, a unique meeting of electronic music with a traditional fanfare, the Belorussian acoustic chamber ensemble Rational Diet. You've never heard music like this one. Try to imagine some Kusturica soundtrack with an electronic twist, and you're still far from it, since there's no real balakanese feel to this electro-cultural melting pot... Favorites include the retro-swinging Kaza Rules, on which some dancefloors are gonna burn this summer, the epic and multi-layered The Legend of the Tattoooed Face Woman or the minimal oriental bounce of Behind The Jajouka.

Press Release :
The National Fanfare of Kadebostany is the breathtaking outcome of electronic music genius Kadebostan's encounter with Belorussian acoustic chamber ensemble Rational Diet. Under the spell of their common love for discovering new ways of expression, they decided to create...a new country. Yes, a new country: Kadebostany! Entrusted with the mission of creating culture for this new land, The Fanfare enlisted the help of talented street musicians from neighboring countries to create a unique piece of music, an organically concocted mix of genres, influences and emotions tightly wrapped in an album with no frontiers.

The musical map of Kadebostany reads like a blueprint for non-electronic techno: hard-hitting yet welcoming like a village feast, cutting-edge yet simple like a long-anticipated hug. Violin, cello, piano, accordion, saxophone, bassoon, guitar, banjo, electronics, and the list goes on, there's no limit in this country!

Whether it's ominous and bassy (Fast "King Rashaa" Mercedes, ode to the engine of big German cars in the streets of Kadebostany), sensual (the subtle strings of "Kadebostany Mon Amour"), bonfire inducing ("Turisty Circus" with vocalist Joy Frempong), or blue like a heartbreak ("La Saeta"), the first record to ever come out of Kadebostany always keeps its reassuring warmth, call it Kadebostanian hospitality.

The big hits are here too: "Kazak Rules" is relentless, club certified, and mind-freeing, "Behind the Jajouka" is a dancefloor magnet, and "The Legend of the Tattooed Face Woman" is as epic as its title suggests. These gems are bound to bring a lot of tourism to Ceyzeria, the capital town of Kadebostany.

The National Fanfare of Kadebostany is a project without precedent, multicultural, organic and uniquely eccentric.

Trailer The National Fanfare of Kadebostany

French Info :
The National Fanfare of Kadebostany est le résultat de la rencontre époustouflante de la musique électronique du génie Kadebostan et de l’ensemble acoustique biélorusse Rational Diet.

Sous le charme de leur passion commune pour la découverte de nouveaux moyens d’expression, ils ont décidé de créer…un nouveau pays : le Kadebostany! Investie par la mission de créer une culture pour cette nouvelle terre, la Fanfare a demandé de l’aide à de talentueux musiciens de rue en provenance des pays voisins pour créer une pièce de musique, un mélange organique de différents genres, influences et émotions bien emballé dans un album sans frontière.

La carte musicale de Kadebostany se lit comme un modèle pour la techno non-électronique : percutant et accueillant comme une fête de village, direct mais simple comme une étreinte attendue. Violon, violoncelle, piano, accordéon, saxophone, basson, guitare, banjo, électronique, et la liste continue…Il n’y a pas de limite dans ce pays. The National Fanfare of Kadebostany est un projet sans précédent, multiculturel, organique et excentrique.
