Tairo - Choeurs Et Ame -2009-
(Reggae, Soul)

From: France

After making his name on the French ragga and dancehall scenes, Tairo is hoping for the same success in soul circles. Ismaël Jolé-Ménébhi was born in Paris to a Moroccan father and a French mother from Alsace. Choeurs Et Ame means Choir and Soul and that is exactly what this album has, Soul. Tairo makes some very melodic and simply very good reggae about life, love, hope, struggle and hope. If you speak French this album is probably even more amazing, but Tairo makes music that goes beyond spoken language. The whole album is full of some very very good reggae tunes. The beats and melodies are so good you instantly forget the lyrics are in French and start trying to sing along even though you don't speak a lick of French. A great mix of energy and soul. Enjoy!
