Biography

Andrej Kljakovic is pianist/composer/producer who has devoted himself to redefining the boundaries of eclectic music over the past decades. Born in Zagreb, and studied at Jazz Conservatory in Paris, he has pioneered first Jazz-Rock band Lotus in former republic of Yugoslavia. And many other projects in 70s and 80s followed like Promise Of The Spring, Simulakra, Digitron, Put Svjetlosti etc.

In 90s he spent time in London working as a record producer for V2 Universal and Sony/BMG record labels and also worked as a songwriter for Bucks Music and Westminster publishing. In 2006 he started his long awaited Voices Of Nature as format that allows him transcend categories and test the parameters of music itself.

Referencing a wide range of musical styles, Andrej's music includes elements and flavours of everything from Jazz and Rock to African, Middle Eastern and Latin, as well as a few harder to identify influences, like Balkan folk music and Croatian Lado. Andrej admits to being widely influenced, but more at a subconscious level, where he's never really sure what his musical antenna are picking up.

Lino G Rocha is a singer/songwriter/lyricist/percussionist. Venezuelan born of Portuguese parents and raised in London UK, Lino began his musical career in the late 80s performing with some of the top salsa bands in the UK including La Clave and Roberto Pla’s Latin ensemble. Presently he is performing with internationally acclaimed Scottish band Salsa Celtica.

Lino's taste for the broader aspect of music has led him to collaborate with a diversity of artists, home and abroad. These include Canadian singer/songwriter Lorena Mckennitt, British-Asian Nitin Sawhney as well as the Pet Shop Boys and Matt Bianco from the UK. Lino has also worked with one of Spain’s top rock bands Danza Invisible and highly regarded flamenco guitarist Pepe Havichuela. Amongst others Lino has also performed with Juan de Marco of Afro-Cuban All Stars.

Lino's vocal abilities have surpassed normal musical boundaries, easily blending various genres as and when required. These can be from soulful subtlety to urban rasping rap and all the way to street-wise Salsa or the passion of Fado and Tango and anything else in between.

Iyama Iyama

Siente mi aliento que moja tu desierto
Vive el momento vive y déjate llevar
Rinde tu cuerpo ofréceme tu libertad
Deja que pruebe tu lágrima de felicidad

Sopla viento sopla a fuego lento
Trae la lluvia tráela con la tempestad
Deja que el grito salga del adentro
Toma mi cuerpo lleva lo a la eternidad

Dame ese bebembe…yo quiero yo quiero ese bembe
Iyama-Dame ese bebembe
Iyama-Dame ese bebembe
Iyama-Dame ese bebembe
Yo quiero yo quiero ese bembe

Baile de luna yo quiero que bailes conmigo
Cierra los ojos oye princesa duerme ya
Cuerpo y alma yo quiero estar contigo
Sueña princesa sueña conmigo y tu veras

Dame ese bebembe…yo quiero yo quiero ese bembe
Iyama-Dame ese bebembe
Iyama-Dame ese bebembe
Iyama-Dame ese bebembe
Yo quiero yo quiero ese bembe

Oye mami no quiero que llores no quiero que sufras mas
No quiero que dos montañas nos separen ya
Oye mami yo te deseo te quiero te adoro mama
Te juro te juro que luchare contra la tempestad
Oye mi voz siente mi alma y espiritualidad
Yo quiero que las ventanas se abran para que respires ya
El aire que te mando para que seque tu llanto
Iyama lyama tu eres un encanto

Dame ese bebembe....... yo quiero yo quiero ese bebembe...
.......................................................................

Dame la luna… dámela dámela dámela ya
Dame la luna..........
Iyama, Iyama, Iyama

Iyama (English)

Feel my breath moistening your desert
Live the moment and let it take you
Surrender your body and offer me your freedom
Let me taste the tear of your happiness

Blow wind blow, blow like slow fire
Bring the rain with thunderstorms
Let your cry come from within
Take my body and take it to eternity

Give me that bebembe, I want that bebembe
Give me that bebembe, I want that bebembe

Moon dance, I want that moon dance
Close your eyes oh princess sleep now
Body and soul, I want to be with you
Dream my princess, dream and you will see

Give me that bebembe, I want that bebembe
Give me that bebembe, I want that bebembe

Hey baby I don’t want you to cry
I don’t want you to suffer anymore
I don’t want those two mountains to separate us now
I promise I promise I will fight the thunderstorms
Listen to my voice, feel my soul and spirituality
I want to open the windows so you can breathe the fresh air
For the air you breathe will dry your tears
Iyama Iyama you are enchanting

Give me that bebembe, I want that bebembe
Give me that bebembe, I want that bebembe

Give me your moon
Give it to me now

Mysterious and blessed creative energy
Give thanks to life

Footsteps that follow me to a fountain
Provoking all my creativity

For every heart beat and every breath you take
And when you moment is due

Until I find the point of no return
