Group "Tigers" has found its African roots

February 9 2009

After going through series of holiday concerts, the band members' Tigr'A "Shani and Kay decided nevertheless to relax and recharge your positive energy. Padded tourist paths guys did not want to walk and went to Africa.

Despite the external image of the fragile blonde Shani by nature quite an extreme person, so it was interesting to see the real African life with my own eyes, and break down stereotypes about the tales of Dr. Dolittle. For Kay, this same trip was doubly interesting: the musician has lived in Cameroon from birth to 3 years old and, of course, that he remembers little about the traditions and customs of the townsfolk.

With crocodiles, snakes and other dangerous animals guys are not met, but well-studied way of life of local residents. In the small town of Chiang musicians have found a lot of abandoned houses, the walls of which were faded photographs, primitive furniture and household utensils. And in one of these guys have found homes this African drum, covered with cobwebs. However, this does not affect his ability to extract the characteristic sounds and Kay easily rattled off on it second hit of the group - the song "Not with you."

"Despite the poverty, the inhabitants of these villages, always smiling, love to dance and generally look pretty happy," says Shani. In Moscow, Kay, and Shani was brought not only the emotions and souvenirs, but also African musical motifs that inspired kids to write a new song.
