IstrArmenia - a new fascinating project of Tamara Obrovac
When your name is Tamara Obrovac and you have such immense musical knowledge and creativity, nothing is impossible, even transferring thousands of kilometers of distance in a creation of a new and unique musical expression.
This time Tamara had the pleasure of working with the Armenian piano player Karen Asatrian on her new project called IstrArmenia, which represents a meeting point of Armenian and Istrian spirits... It is the synthesis of two musical journeys, two musical handwritings, two great performers and composers, both seeking for truthfulness by combining archaic language of their traditions with modern jazz expression.
The project will be presented for the first time on 12th February in Jazz club Klagenfurt, and the Croatian premiere will take place on February 14th 2011, at the Istrian National Theatre in Pula. The work on the project will be followed by the production of the CD and further concert promotion.
Tamara Obrovac is an Istrian musician, singer, composer and flute player and one of the most important and versatile personalities on the Croatian music scene: By now she released 6 albums and cooperated on various theatre and film projects, she won numerous regional music awards, in 2004 she was even nominated for a BBC World Music Award. Besides that, Tamara is also a director of Valmar Jazz Festival in Poreč.

IMAGEM MUSIC PARTNERS WITH EPITAPH RECORDS
Imagem Music, the world’s largest independent music publisher, has announced an agreement with Brett Gurewitz and his iconic label Epitaph Records to become the administration partner for the company’s publishing division, FIG Music.
This new agreement is a long-term, worldwide (excl. USA/Canada) administration deal including all existing FIG Music artists as well as future signings.
Epitaph Records was founded by Bad Religion guitarist Brett Gurewitz, with the aim of starting an artist-friendly label from a musician’s point of view. Perhaps most well known for being the little indie from L.A. that spawned the 90s punk explosion, Epitaph stayed independent even while breaking gold and multi-platinum punk acts such as The Offspring, Rancid, NOFX, Bad Religion and Pennywise. It has hence grown into one of the most diverse and well-respected independent labels of its time, launching along the way, the two very successful sister labels: Hellcat Records, specializing in street punk, psychobilly & ska, and ANTI-, representing such distinguished artists as Tom Waits, Mavis Staples, The Swell Season and Neko Case.
Chrysalis author on top-selling SeRbian album of the year
Aleksandra Kovač, one of the best female artists in the region and a proud owner of the top selling album of the 2010 in Serbia, called 'Beogradski glas 10' and EMA's Best Adriatic Act Award. Aleksandra cooperated on the hit album with the famous Swedish composer Fredrik Thomander, that used to write music for pop sensations such as N'Sync, A-Teens and No Angels. Fredrik Thomander and Aleksandra Kovac worked on the song 'Stronger Than Before" aka 'Jaca ego pre'. They also collaborated on her previous album 'U mojoj sobi' on the song 'Madly In Love' aka 'To je to'.
IDM proudly represents both of the songs for the region, through Chrysalis Music Publishing. For licensing or any additional info contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
