Honore

As usual, I’m having fun discovering new artists and I came across Honore‘s music on Instagram. Honore’ is currently releasing a new single called #3LW, as well as looking for collaborations to advance his music career further.

About Honore’

Honore (pronounced honour-ray) is a Pop/R&B singer-songwriter from Los Angeles, California.🌹

Hailing from ethnic descents of Creole (African American & French), and Filipino, Honore’ reflects the same diversity in his universal style.

Honore has performed throughout the US and Asia.

His favourite performing credits include opening for the Pussycat Dolls at The Araneta Coliseum Manila.

He has also sung with many artists such as:

  • Harvey Mason and Friends,
  • Howard Hewitt,
  • Denise Williams.

He has notably done a duet with Patrice Rushen for the opening for Vina Morales/Eric Santos at the San Diego Symphony Hall.

Honore is a singer who puts on a great show. Whether he’s performing on stage solo or live with his band or moving fans with dance choreography, or writing and producing songs, his originality and professionalism completely separate him from other artists. 💣

Honore’s influences are Prince, Miguel, Bruno Mars, Pharrell Williams, Justin Timberlake.

He stated: “I want to speak to the world through my music, spread love and inspire minds.”

ABOUT HIS NEW RELEASE SINGLE #3LW

Honoré’s latest single, #3LW is a statement that true love never dies.

#3LW Rn’b single written in collaboration with Jasmine Ejan was recorded in the studio by superstar producer Mike Cee. You can download the song on Itunes for only $0.99! 

💰 Honoré’s RnB single #3Lw 🙏

Never underestimate the power of #3LW: 3 Little Words: I Love You.

Honoré gives a respectful nod to classic 90’s R&B music. It was a time when songs had a deeper meaning. True love was at the centre of every harmony and lyric.

The official music video released on 4th July 2017,  directed by Bobby Torres has an amazing storyline.

It displays the ultimate sacrifice of love and all the ups and downs of being in a relationship.  It will move your heart. You will find yourself singing every line until you reach the emotional twist at the end. Check it out!

#3LW features the talents of Jasmine Ejan and Gino Calantoni.

OTHER PROJECTS

Honoré continues to stay relevant and popular among his thousands of fans and followers by working harder than ever between performing and recording.

He’s currently recording his much-anticipated, third solo album “SuperFantastik” with superstar producers Mike Cee, Elev8t, and RJ Fullrange.

Honore’ also released last year a single called ‘Good Times’, which you can download at this Itunes link:

The selected soundtrack playlist comes from a Berlin-based band calledFewjar‘ playing in multiple genres such as Electro, the 80s, Rock, Progressive, Psychedelic, Crossover, Triphop.

You can follow them on their various social accounts by checking the links in their Youtube description below their videos.

Fewjar band regularly organises on Youtube live room sessions, where they play for you their songs live in their studio as well as occasionally bring guests to their recording sessions.

They can also play songs upon request if you notify them sufficiently in advance by commenting under their Youtube live videos.

Here are few samples of their live studio sessions, in which they connect with their audience.

Now, as you may have guessed, the film is also in German. But don’t worry because it is subtitled in English. Feeling relieved?😌 It’s a very well done psychological thriller. Although it’s not my film genre, I truly enjoyed it and hope you will, too!

Nigerian b-boy music history from 1980s-1990s in videos

Today, I’m going to share with you some mixed tapes for break dancing from Nigerian artists. But before doing so, if you don’t know yet the general origins of b-boy music and dance themselves, just have a read of this article 👇

nigerian breakdance

In Nigeria, Hip-hop music and dance only began to gain popularity in the mid-1990s. The initial success of The Remedies was probably the catalyst. Formed in 1997, the group released two songs, “Judile” and “Shako mo”, which became overnight hits in Nigeria.

Enjoy this Youtube videos’playlistt from The Remedies!

I have also found especially for you some rare old Nigerian funk music 😉:

Street School Dance Battles organised by Vigozone in Hamburg (2015)

STREET SCHOOL DANCE

While planning a holiday trip in Hamburg (Germany), I researched any interesting hip-hop dance events in the city.

I came across the street school dance battles event. I received a free ticket for the dance live performances.

The street school dancers were teenagers of different ages with one common goal: giving the best performance they could to the audience.

And what a show! I felt the dance level was pretty high! I watched incredible crew choreography and battles from all styles, such as:

  • new style hip-hop,
  • locking,
  • popping,
  • b-boying
  • k-pop,
  • dancehall,
  • afrobeat
  • salsa.

STREET SCHOOL DANCE EVENT STAKEHOLDERS

The host himself was pretty good at dancing. He was also very entertaining. 🎉

One of the judges and his dance partner performed their duet choreography.

If you’d like to know more about the stakeholders at this event, check their Facebook event page.

Now, impatient to see what it looked like? Please find below a small slide show.

I filmed:

  • 4 battles,
  • 5 crew/duet choreography
  • 2 dance demonstrations from the presenter.

2009 inspiring ‘B-Girl’ American free film viewing and cast information

B-GIRL FILM

Although this may not be the most popular film and reviews are quite mixed, I must say it is an enjoyable b-girl film. It is inspiring and empowering for aspiring b-girls and female rappers!

B-Girl is a 2009 dance film written and directed by Emily Dell and starring Julie Urich, Missy Yager, Wesley Jonathan, Drew Sidora, Aimee Garcia, James Martinez and based on director Emily Dell’s 2004 short film of the same name.

b-girl film

B-GIRL FILM STORY PLOT

The story goes as follows. In Brooklyn, Angel is a breakdancer who lives with her mother Gabby.

Her abusive boyfriend Hector won’t accept that she wants to break up. One night Angel and her best friend Rosie trade hats and jackets and Hector fatally stabs Rosie thinking she is Angel. When he realizes his mistake he stabs Angel too.

Rosy dies and Angel is heavily injured. After many weeks of recovery, Angel wants to break dance again but is having difficulty.

Gabby moves with Angel to Los Angeles to live with Angel’s grandmother, where she believes Angel will be safe.

Angel gets a night job at a car rental company and goes to college during the day. She also joins a group of break dancers who need a sixth member to compete. An outsider in this male-dominated world, she has to claim her place in the circle, first by performing a lyrical rap poem at a huge break competition and then by competing at the same competition in an amazing display of dance artistry and skill.
