Cultural ambassadors for freedom, Libertalia writes, records and performs Modern International Dance Music with elements of Jazz, Rock, Reggae and WorldBeat. This is Libertalia and you really should read all on their website, it is not just a band they are a lot more. Read my review of this nation on band and nation on chatsong, listen to their songs and give comments and star ratings underneath

It’s not just a band. It’s a nation.


Perhaps the most unabashedly ambitious band in history, Libertalia seeks to go way beyond the achievement of mere commercial traction or even the launching of a new artistic movement. (The group eschews pitch correction, drum machines and samples). Their objective is to give musical voice to the objective of creating an entirely new nation-state. They’re not looking for fans. They’re looking for freedom fighters. Have they completely lost their minds? Maybe. Maybe not. 

Soon after her year-and-a-half run ended at The Pantages, Joni Margaux met Randell Young at the Henry Fonda Theater in Los Angeles during an audition for an ambitious children’s entertainment project called Zarbie and The Martians. Joni’s version is that Randell had already been hired to write and record the soundtrack and that he insisted Joni be cast as Zarbie. Randell’s recollection is that Joni had already been cast in the lead and lobbied hard for the executive producers to bring in Randell. The discrepancy speaks volumes about the duo. They are both quick to recognize their collaborators’ contributions and give away credit wherever possible.

 

Not unlike Steely Dan, which at its peak consisted of keyboardist/vocalist/writer Donald Fagen, guitarist/bassist/writer Walter Becker and whatever sidemen the duo considered the best fit for recording each individual track or performing the body of material live, Libertalia is essentially vocalist/dancer/actress/fashion designer Joni Margaux, guitarist/bassist/vocalist/writer/arranger/producer Randell Young and whoever else they use (either live or in the studio) to pull off their aggressive and challenging material.

Randell Young began his professional career right out of high school playing R&B clubs in his hometown of Washington, D.C. Nearly three decades later, Joni Margaux began her professional career at age 11 cast as The Young Nala in the Walt Disney Company’s production of The Lion King at the Pantages Theater in Los Angeles.

Above you can read a bit of the long story on their website, I think you could better read it yourself to understand what and who they are, I am only going to review their songs they have made till now. The first song I listened called Floretine and its beautiful,  the genre is Reggae. And it  has amazing tunes, what an amazing vocally voice the singer has in that song  and when they sing together its like firework. They have a perfect timing and sounds  marvelous in that song, I like this a lot. The second song called A new day is just as beautiful as the first one, only a different intro and melodies. They describe the song as the genre EDM/Dance but I would say its electronic with funky and jazzy  sounds in it. I can hear the soul in the voices of them both, really amazing artists. Wow the song called the dance of leah is really soulful and there you can hear how vocally good they are, their lyrics are as good written as they sing it. This is high quality music, and I believe we have a new legend in the category such as Bob Marley and other great blues and Motown artists. This duo will come very far this is world class music, they have a perfect rhythm and timing in their songs its unbelievable. The song called time out its so damned good, the vibration and power he has its lovely and her vocals on the background makes it outstanding together. All their songs are so damned good, this need to be shared and heard everywhere on the world, at each radio station online or in the houses around the world. If it were up to me they would be number one on the MTV charts or billboards charts, I think when more and more will listen to their songs they soon will be having lots of gigs and tours. Therefore, share this review as much as you can and give comments and votes underneath this review.
