We started the year of 2018 with two concerts tours, Huun Huur Tu performs shows in America and will turn over to UK and Norway, before they return March 18 to Europe. During summer they will release "Children of the Otter" a crossover masterpiece with classical musicians and choir. Pussy Riot performs right now in Germany and a next tour with concerts in Austria, Serbia, France, Finland is scheduled too. We are happy to announce the Polish/Ukrainian group DAGADANA. Our mail-order customers will have the possibilities to purchase the album soon. So many plans for 2018 with fine products. As well keep in mind you can follow us on Spotify too. We publish a monthly playlist with interesting and off course new materials. Last not least THE BULGARIAN VOICES ANGELITE return to JAPAN end of this month.
2017 was an event and succesfull year for us, and we were able to celebrate anniversaries with two artists. 30 years THE BULGARIAN VOICES ANGELITE and 70th birthday of JASPER VAN't HOF. We have also released high-quality albums that are more than just music. The accompanying books give an insight into the creativity of the artists, evoke memories. We also want to continue such projects in 2018 and look forward to our first release of the new year DAGADANA. We have been following this Polish, Ukrainian ensemble for five years and now we have decided to release their fourth CD. Here, too, we attach great importance to a high-quality booklet. DagaDana pursue a folkloric tradition on one side, but on the other hand embody a young, interested and modern music generation. Furthermore, the tension is already big on the new studio album of HAZMAT MODINE "Box of Breath". as well as the new CD with Huun Huur Tu "Children of the Otter. In 2018 the second book project after Lisboa "Past & Present" with New York "Past & Present" will be released, a journey through time from 1928 to today! We have many ideas and hope to be able to implement them all. We will set up a crowdfunding page at JAROs website to make this possible. In times when there is the focus always on economical values, culture and education are unfortunately too short! Finally, the short note that we are particularly pleased to be able to host the tour for Pussy Riot from Russia. It is now more than important that the fingers are put on the wounds, the political resistance can not be suppressed (We have just heard that activist Masha Aljekhina was once again arrested today because of her protest [...]
The JARO website has changed during the last year. We try to create our site more customer-friendly and to make important information more accessible. Another new feature is the possibility to use a Spotify Player to listen to the current music of the artists who are on tour or publish new CDs. We always present one or two titles of an artist, so you can get a better picture of their products and activities. Every month we publish a new Playlist. Also, we will include a video on the front page that shows an artist who is currently playing concerts. The rest of the year is filled with many activities. On tour will be following artists: Huun-Huur-Tu, who have just released their first audiophile vinyl "60 horses in my herd", Jasper van't will play solo at the Neuwied Jazzfestival, then he performs three exclusive concerts with the old Pili Pili formation , He will play their old hits . The blind singer DONA ROSA presents Live the photobuch "Lisboa" and in the other part of the concert she performs with her trio in complete darkness. One of the highlights is the great European tour of the famous "BULGARIAN VOICES ANGELITE", Sofia's women's choir, who started the career with three concerts in Germany in late 1987. For the anniversary we publish a double CD box with rare recordings from 30 years. The choir will play a Europe tour until 20 December and then travels to Japan in January. 2018 continues with the publication of the CD "Meridan 68" of the formation DAGaDAnA. We have been watching this ensemble for five years before signing a contract with them. In the music it is sometimes not different than in the scouting departments of football clubs. The upcoming spring we expect the new Studio [...]
