About This Act :
Biography
Now that Steve Oliver\’s in the house, lighting up clubs, concerts, festivals and radio request lines all over North America, Disneyland\’s going to have to come up with a new slogan. Wherever he is, wherever he\’s performing, no matter where you hear his irresistibly melodic guitar lines and magnificently soulful voice-it suddenly becomes the happiest place on earth. Between the smooth, funky and cool, his wild and kinetic transformation into a human drum machine and percussion choir weakens the resistance of even the hardest core cynic of \”vocalese.\”

About This Act :
The band Matt Bianco was founded in 1982 by Mark Reilly, Danny White, Toto Poncioni and background vocalist Basia, just after Reilly and White left art-poppers Blue Rondo a la Turk. Their first album, “Whose side are you on?” turned them over night into superstars, as their mixture of Ska, Jazz and Soul, mixed with Basia’s impressive and sophisticated vocal harmonies was unheard in 1983.

Their 50’s black and white styling, mixed with postmodern flair and a couple of snappy videos helped as well. “Whose side are you on?” sold well: a couple of gold discs here, some platinum there and Matt Bianco grew to be one of the biggest acts of the mid-eighties.

About This Act :
Late junction (BBC) presenter Fiona Talkington explains how an exceptional young Tunisian musician found his creative home in Europe.

A small seaside town in Tunisia in the 1970s. A boy walks along a deserted shoreline picking up the odds and ends he finds lying around: A broken fishing net; a few discarded sardine cans; spokes from an old bicycle. His heart and mind are full of music and he wants to play. It\’s as much as his father can do to put food on the table for Dhafer and his seven brothers and sisters. There certainly isn\’t spare money for music lessons, let alone for an instrument. So Dhafer makes his own oud, the traditional middle-Eastern lute, using whatever he can find.
