Moonshee's New Single Pride Among Equals!

Avaliable to download from the 3rd of September 2012

 

The perfect song for these times , Moonshee’s ‘Pride Among Equals’ has developed to take on a meaning that transcends its origins. From the rights of women across the world to the campaign for gay marriage, gender equality and the demands for economic accountability, the message is a simple one – that everyone deserves to be treated with respect and dignity.


In this year of all years, there is also an extra element. The coming weeks will see athletes from all over the world come to London to compete on the biggest stage of all in the Olympic and Para Olympic Games. No matter what their physical challenges, nationality, their gender or their religion, they arrive as equals to compete for the Olympic ideal.


For Moonshee, such an approach is a way of life. A reflection of the multi-cultural nature of modern Britain, their six members encompass a literal world of music, from the ancient sounds of the East to the influence of modern English songwriting, via Irish folk and South American percussion. Given the context of their musical and personal history, ‘Pride Among Equals’ is an anthem that will have resonance across various communities. Whether it be the plight of those involved in arranged marriages or anyone suffering at the hands of racial prejudice, it is for them - inspirational, inspired and intelligent, truly a song for these modern times.

(Phil Udell State Magazine)
 

" At a time when it seems there's a new fusion band every week, quality is a
variable commodity. Those who can actually join together music and culture
from diverse sources in a meaningful way are rare. Moonshee however are the
real deal no question, their blending of exotic Indian textures with the
earthiness of English folk, the dervish whirl of Celtic melody delivered
through sumptuous harmony somehow makes perfect sense. If you're one of
those who allows pigeon holes to inform their musical taste stand by they
just might change the way you think...this is music for open hearts and
minds."
Simon Jones. (fRoots.)

 

A dynamic & exotic live act who bring a different & original slant to the world of folk has now been captured on record with their début album for all to hear. This album sees them take English music into a global context. Moonshee represent the point where the east meets the west, where the past meets the future. With a shared history that includes work with the likes of Paul Weller, Kumar Bose, Bombay Dub Orchestra, Noel Gallagher and Sir Paul McCartney, Moonshee “interweave their skills to create something magical and entirely natural.”(Phil Udell State Magazine www.state.ie)Their musical line-up features sitar, tablas, South American percussion, Celtic fiddle and harp plus vocals from the Indian, Irish and English folk tradition. A cultural melting pot, the band are true musical tourists – pick any moment from this début album at random and you’ll find the sound of traditional England, bhangra and Indian folk tunes, Irish fiddle or harp and a range of harmony vocals from across the spectrum giving an indication of the directions that they are set to take their extraordinary music.
