GOLDSMACK Unveil new video for ‘Good Morning Star’ with The VPME

“They’ve produced a rather wonderful debut EP after striking a rich vein of creativity to extract five shiny nuggets of mystical psychedelic pop.
We’re delighted to premiere their video for what is perhaps our favourite track on the EP ‘ Good Morning Star’ a driving melodic psych-pop gem.”
– THE VPME

To define Goldsmack, just imagine that Love, Bruce Haack, The Velvet Underground and Nico teamed up to compose a song for a Disney classic. They are a psychedelic power pop trio of gold-scented, gold junkies, created to bring discord and entropy into the world of pop music with a sound that is soft and electric; quirky and genuine; super serious and absolutely whimsical.

Baluji accompanies Inner Vision Orchestra

As seen at the 2012 Paralympic Closing Ceremony with Coldplay – blind and partially sighted musicians to play live around the UK

 

Renowned blind Indian maestro Baluji Shrivastav brings together this inspiring group of musicians from all over the world.

Baluji who is a world famous multi-instrumentalist and composer has recorded for dance, theatre, Western orchestra, Indian ensembles, Radio, TV and film, with music currently featured in Disney’s newest Film ‘Million Dollar Arm’ starring Jon Hamm from Madmen. He has recorded with celebrities such as, Massive Attack, Madness, Doves, Amorphous Androgynous, and on Shakira’s latest album. He has performed with great artists such as Stevie Wonder and Chris Martin. He also has his own Jazz ensemble Jazz Orient/Re-Orient and has recorded several albums of Indian Classical and fusion music.

This incredible orchestra of talented blind musicians from around the globe celebrates the power of music to transform lives. The Inner Vision Orchestra plays music from Iran, Lebanon, Afghanistan, India, Nigeria, Japan, and soulful Gospel and Blues plus sublime Indian Ragas and Western Classical compositions.

The Inner Vision Orchestra are preparing themselves for a full UK tour later this year.

Baluji is excited about the upcoming tour “Each member of the Inner Vision orchestra has an extraordinary story to tell about the power of music in their lives, for example, our Iranian singer Fereshteh’s parents told her that if she would perform in public they would pour petrol on her and set it alight, but nothing and no-one will stop Fereshteh from singing. It is about amazing people using music to give their lives direction and purpose.”

Their moving and uplifting music will make these live dates truly unforgettable.  The tour will be featured in a full length documentary film.
