One Heart (Dub Mix)
YOU & I
Tout s'est arrêté autour de nous à la première écoute de Cherry Blossom (...) Émilie Côté, La Presse
Des ballades aux allures de confidences, une voix scintillante, des orchestrations épurées au swing d’antan, écouter la mystérieuse Ala.ni, c’est plonger hors du temps. Le Monde.fr
ALA.NI’s performance at the 2015 Montreal International Jazz Festival enthralled and amazed her audience. Since then, she’s released her 12-track album on the renowned Paris-based label No format! on March 6 2016 in Europe, a record that evolved from 4 EPs released over each season in 2015.
Bonsound is proud to be part of the digital release of the British singer with Caribbean roots’ debut album on July 1st in Canada. Be sure to catch her next performance at Club Soda on July 7th, as part of the Montreal International Jazz Festival. Pre-order the album You & I now via iTunes.
Today, ALA.NI releases her self-directed video for her song Ol’ Fashioned Kiss. The images are a literal depection of the song’s title, and portrays an ode to tenderness and intimacy. Watch Ol’ Fashioned Kiss now via Youtube.
Among ALA.NI’s ancestors is great uncle Leslie Hutchinson, A.K.A Hutch, an international music-hall star from the 1930s who helped her find her path. ALA.NI has sung alongside huge talents including Andrea Bocelli, Mary J Blige and Blur. On this debut album (recorded in London) she signs of timeless things; of love & romance and its strange, silver edges, and of the seasons of a painful relationship that flowered with spring's blossoms and died under winter's snowfall. The songs are astonishing, and blend styles like jazz, trip-hop, soul and blues. You & I lifts off the shackles from our senses and our hearts, and tells us all about one extraordinary woman and her journey.
