Me'Asa Weyo - New Album!

Hello everyone!

My stage name is Me'Asa Weyo. I am a Belgian singer-songwriter, choir director, and also a teacher of singing and musical comedy.

MY JOURNEY

I begin my life as an artist in 2010 with a concert in a bar in Brussels, the "Tels Quels". In 2015, after many concerts in Belgium and France, I released my first album, "Way Of Indigo", a personal album with multiple musical influences (afro, soul, pop, funk) that recounts the most memorable moments of life from the previous years of my personal journey.

Alongside this first album I produced two music videos ("Nowhere To Go" and "Feel") and recorded two live sessions ("You Say" and "Sad Song") which I am extremely proud of, and you can discover on Youtube.

Between 2015 and 2019, I performed concerts in Belgium (Botanique, Acte 3, Place Royale, Panafrican Festival, ...) and, in parallel, began to compose new songs. The first of these is "Better People", a song that explains how I think it is urgent that human beings become "better" and change their behaviour towards nature as well as towards each other. The other 9 songs are linked to this point of view and each one is the result of examining how to positively work on myself and the desire to share the benefits I have personally discovered from this examination.

THE "ME'ASA WEYO" TEAM EXPANDS!

Since 2010, I have come a long way! I am delighted to announce that "Impulse Sounds & Events" now accompanies me in the development and management of my artistic project.

I am also joined in the adventure by a whole team who help me progress the project, while preserving the colours and values of it:

- Arnaud Sirtaine (Project Manager)

- Boris Engels (Project Manager Assistant)

- Geoffrey Lesire (Artistic Director)

- Kevin Collard (Sound Engineer)

MY NEW ALBUM

My request to you today comes because I'm currently working on a new album ... "Movements of Life".

"Movements of Life" is a journey between reggae, afro, pop, soul and funk. It is also 10 songs that evoke the way we are all, in a way, connected, and the desire to exploit these connections to finally begin to treat life as it should be treated.

The album also discusses one of the greatest lessons I've learned this year: "The universe, or whatever you call it, always speaks to us, always sends us little messages, and always reminds us to look around and believe in something else, something more ... "

THE SONGS

Here are the titles of the songs of the album "Movements Of Life". (The order remains to be determined):

- Ubuntu

- Seeds Of Truth

- Soul Connected

- What The Silence Holds

- Better People

- Disconnected

- Natural Voices

- In The Life (Polari Song)

- Just A Little Bit Of Freedom

- Good Vibes

THE MUSICIANS

Your support will help me to engage very talented musicians on this adventure:

- Geoffrey Lesire (guitars and arrangements)

- Didier Fontaine (drums)

- Frédéric Dailly (bass)

- Alexandre Prete (percussion)

- Muriel Kouyaté (djembe on "Soul Connected")

- Arnaud Sirtaine (Handpan on "What The Silence Holds")

- Sonia Gotikian (piano on "What The Silence Holds")

- Alexis Ceccaldi (piano except "What The Silence Holds")

FEATURINGS ...

I am also pleased to announce that no less than three other singing artists have agreed to take part in the adventure, and will therefore do me the honour to lend their voice to this project that is close to my heart!

There will be a fourth 'featuring' special to me, on a song just as unique: "What The Silence Holds", a piece I wrote for my son, born in December 2018, and about which I will speak in the course of the recording.

All these names will be revealed to you as the album progresses!

It only remains for me to thank you in advance for your interest and your participation! See you soon!

Lots of Light!

Me'Asa Weyo
