Venustribes are part of the ethereal wave of neo-classical artists fusing songwriting craft, world beat and jazz.
Concept album Siddhartha was inspirited by Herman Hesse’s mystical novel, describing a travellers' inner journey - and a return to the source.
Jose De Champ: "Human beings as part of an amazingly beautiful Gaia System ... you may also call it earth-system. Perhaps this has been largely forgotten in Western culture ... and song Red Gaia is an apocalyptic manifestation of this state of mind ....... Whilst writing album ‘Siddhartha’ Chief Raoni’s cry went into this music; as did the cries of many from the abundant tribes of Gaia who remember All-connectedness."
Siddhartha is dedicated to the INTERNATIONAL COUNCIL OF 13 INDIGENOUS GRANDMOTHERS.
To the Kogi Mamas of Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta - Gonavindua Tairona Elder Brothers and GUARDIANS OF WATER.
Further dedicated to Chief RAONI, Chief of the Xingu Indigenous Lands of Brazil.
Venustribes now released second album '7 Colours' via Mondotunes. An alternative album with references to American roots music with just an edge of punk and psychedelia - yet also strong Americana aspects with orchestral, cinematic arrangements.
