Introducing C-Strokes

Port Harcourt, Nigeria – Through their travels musicians are often privileged to meet persons from all walks of life, hardcore fans, music lovers, politicians and even the occasional royalty. Such an honor recently was bestowed on Morgan Heritage’s youngest band member Mojo Morgan while journeying in Nigeria he became acquainted with Port Harcourt Mayor Chimbiko Iche Akarolo.

Bonding through music, Mojo heard a tale unlike any other, and combining his love of Music and Philanthropy decided to lend his voice, talent, compassion and heart to a worthy project. This is the story of the Mayor who became musician…

C-Strokes – “Reality (Love & Life)”

Hailing from the motherland of Africa, Chimbiko Iche Akarolo’s story is unlike any other. Born in Port Harcourt, Nigeria to school teacher parents, education was embedded in Chimbiko from an early age and his future seemed cemented unto that path. Proudly 7 years after being married, Chimbiko became the Mayor of Port Harcourt, the third largest city in Nigeria and dedicated his service to his beloved city when tragedy struck. Within 3 months of taking office, the Mayor lost his devout wife during childbirth, due to a poor health system.

Through this tragedy and like a phoenix rising through the ashes, Chimbiko Iche Akarolo’s alter ego C-Strokes emerged. Music became the bridge between politics, philanthropy and a foundation. The music also gave birth to CAF, a foundation created in honor of his late wife to support pregnant women and childcare.

Music is the universal language. So as a means to raise funds for the charity, Chimbiko resorted to music as a tool for promoting the ideals of the foundation through the name C-Strokes. Although it is quite unorthodox for his position as a Mayor, his position in the city of Port Harcourt, Nigeria has enabled him to collaborate with medical associations and musical artists both locally and now internationally with Heritage Grown Productions. Mojo Morgan of Reggae super group Morgan Heritage, heads Heritage Grown Productions and he also shares in the vision to support childcare with emphasis on malaria. Mojo is featured on the remix of the lead single “It’s All About You” from the upcoming album “Reality (Love & Life)”.

C-Strokes’ music touches emotionally where words alone can’t express. All proceeds arising from his career as C-Strokes is donated to his CAF charity. With the help and new collaboration with Heritage Grown Productions, sub Saharan Africa will witness great support for motherhood and childcare in 2014 and beyond

Bruce Springsteen aktuell med nytt album

Den 13 januari 2014 släpps Bruce Springsteens nya album ”High Hopes”, men redan idag är det premiär för singeln ”High Hopes”. Albumet innehåller covers som blivit livefavoriter, studioinspelningar av låtar som tidigare endast kunnat höras live samt outgivet material från det senaste decenniet. ”High Hopes” som är Bruce Springsteens 18e studioalbum är inspelat i New Jersey, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Australien och New York City.

På ”High Hopes” får vi höra Springsteen i olika musikaliska sättningar som inkluderar gitarristen Tom Morello och medlemmar i The E Street Band. Morello turnerade med Bruce och The E Street Band i Australien i mars tidigare i år då han hoppade in för Steve Van Zandt. Tom Morello blev som Bruce själv beskriver det “my muse, pushing the rest of this project to another level.” Förutom gitarrspelandet på det nya albumet gör Morello en duett med Bruce på låten “The Ghost of Tom Joad”. Clarence Clemons, som gick bort 2011, och Danny Federici, som gick bort 2008, finns också med på ett flertal låtar som Springsteen beskriver som ”some of our best unreleased material from the past decade.”

För att hylla nyheten om albumreleasen har regissören Thom Zimny gjort ett kollage med bilder av Danny Clinch, bilder från turnén i Australien med Tom Morello tagna av Chris Hilson samt äldre klassiska bilder som utgör den nya videon till singeln “High Hopes”:
