Ujjaya is one man project, Randriambololona Hery, living in France but who have malagasy root, and travel throughIndia and South-east Asia, playing dozen of exotic instruments. At the very begining in the ealy 90 I was an electric guitarist that was fascinated with the unexplore potency of that instrument. As a spiritual seeker too, my music basically rooted in the metal, prog rock was aiming more and more toward the ambient music.

Title: Silent Opening
Keywords: folk; rock; acoustic
Originally released in 2008 in a limited handmade CD package, "Silent Opening" is an intimate folk/rock debut album from the french songwriter Yonograph (Yohann Antignac).
After playing in different bands and artistic projects, Yohann played solo on stage in 2006 under the name of "Yoan and the Silent Phonograph".
Why this name? Maybe to refer to the good old music values which disappeared day after day...or maybe just because of the worry of feeling lonely on stage.
The "one man band" became Yonograph in 2010 after many gigs everywhere in France...

Title: Mua (EP)
Keywords: post-punk; lo-fi; experimental; rock
If a personality was a house, these songs would be found in its dark corners.
All houses are alike. The same rooms. Necessary things carry out its usual functions. The interior is never good enough... So unevident and hidden (perhaps even from the eyes of the owner) is much more interesting. Though there is little fun in concealed and intentionally forgotten stuff. Minor mental pathologies. Some rusted mechanisms of emotions forming. A thick dust layer of loneliness. In fine, things that make you fell like a hero of Ellise`s "Glamorama" asking: “Who the hell is Mua?" And get no clear answer.
Если представить личность человека как дом, то эти песни найдены в тёмных его углах.
Ведь все дома в целом похожи. Те же комнаты. Необходимые в быту предметы выполняют одинаковые фунцкии. Интерьер всегда недостаточно хорош... Интересно же неочевидное. Скрытое, возможно, даже от глаз хозяина. Хотя в потаенном и намеренно забытом мало веселого. Мелкие психические патологии. Заржавевшие механизмы формирования эмоций. Толстый слой пыли одиночества. В общем, такие вещи, которые позволяют уподобившись герою «Гламорамы» Эллиса задаться вопросом «кто же такой этот гребаный Муа?» и не получить внятного ответа.

Artist: 16 Lovers Lane
Title: Don’t Try To Push Me (EP)
Keywords: dream pop; post-rock; indie; psy-folk
“Don’t try to push me” is a 4 songs EP: Lay down has always been fun to play, and its recording has a very good melancholic feel to it, a “Take me out tonight” languor. Inside outside has a middle-eight part that made us realize how beautiful we could get working on harmony and colors. David is one of the first songs we have written and one of the hardest to work out: we wanted a perfect sound for a song that matters a lot to us (it is, in fact, our humble homage to David Foster Wallace's work). Death by love is a lullaby for another day, and our very first song too.
16 Lovers Lane are a band from Verona, Italy. The members are: Michele Segàla (guitar, vocals), Giulia-Giorgia Quaggiotto (electric piano, keyboards, programming, vocals), Federico Di Fonte (bass). “Don’t try to push me” is their first release.
