King Kalabash and Baron Black were born on the Caribbean island Martinique and they keep returning there each year now. At the end of the 80s, they had won a singer contest, thanks to which they left to represent their home country in France. There, they found their second home. Both merged with the environment there quickly and spontaneously founded an association they named BIG FAMILI. The goal of this big family is to discover and connect all hidden talents and give them a chance to show themselves. Both artists so share their experience and resources with young people in their surroundings, so that they mutually support and inspire each other in their creative activity.
In the year 1990, they have founded the ZION SON (Sound of Zion) sound system, but besides, they continue to do technical craftsmanship and work with various natural materials to stimulate their creativity. This has to do with the fact that BIG FAMILI is a group connecting not only musicians but also artists from various creative areas… Together, they are for example producing original lamps, bracelets and own paintings, giving them their own completely original and non-conventional character.
Besides this, both singers record songs for various compilations and travel to sing at all kinds of humanitarian events, including the well-known Bourges Spring, where they have been accepted enthusiastically in the year 1999. Very successful were also their two visits to the Czech Republic, where they accompanied the French Love Corner sound system. These experiences give them even more energy and inspiration for public appearances, as the atmosphere, which comes into being spontaneously wherever they sing, is simply magical.
Their production is based upon wise texts and engrossing combination capability, which they have brought to perfection together. With playfulness, they sing in English, French and their own Creole language about life, relationships, politics and most of all about the possibility of perfect symbiosis with God and all living things. They give an example of this themselves and their audience confirms it to them excitedly.
Both artist are currently fully immersed in their music, and so, besides the preparations of their first record “Racines” (roots), they have in winter pressed two singles in Lod…nice, supported by the Prague DJ Yukimura. Today, these singles are successful throughout the whole Europe. This spring, they are preparing a set together with the Prague band Lion Taxi Service, with which they will give several exclusive appearances throughout Central Europe. They would also like to introduce their music universe to a broad public. They expect nothing from you, only that you give them a chance. Listen to them and decide for yourselves!
