about

[EUS] ARIMA SOUL
"Beltz kresaltsua"

Marea bizietan Zarauzko malekoia jotzen duten olatuek bezala altxatzen da hasierako doinutik laukote soulzalearen estreinako lan luzea, fresko eta txinpartatsua, baina era berean irmoa, bere sotiltasunean. "Arima du" kantutik abiatzen da tsunamia, New Orleans hiriko zingiretan murgiltzeko: rhythm & blues dantzagarria, gospelaren espiritualtasuna eta brass-band-en metal dirdiratsuaren konpainia, Broken Brothers Brass Band taldeko kideen eskutik.

Behin budu horretan harrapatuta, entzulea askotariko belztasunean itsatsiko da, lokatzetatik ezin atera dabilen kaimanaren antzera: "Ilunabarra" abestiaren soul dotorea, "Gu Andereak" funk aldarrikatzailea edo "Dortoka Pausoa"-k haizatzen duen mod jazz kutsua, piano jostagarriak bultzatutako latin-jazz pasarteetara iritsi arte.

Ozeano koloretsu horretan orainetik sartzen ditu bandak bere erremuak. Hori guztia, gainera, euskaraz surfeatu du taldeak, Lidia Insaustik burututako ahaleginari esker; "Itsasoan" eta "Zerbait" soul garaikideko ale dotoreak entzutea baino ez dago Insaustiren magia antzemateko. Euskaraz egindako soul ariketa handienetakoa da Arima Soul taldearena, eta emaitza zorrotza eta ausarta da, olatu erraldoietan salto egiteko moduko balentria erakutsi baitute Lidia Insaustik (ahotsa), Mikel Makalak (baxua), Paul San Martinek (teklatuak) eta Gorka Gaztanbidek (bateria).

[ENG] ARIMA SOUL
"Black with a taste of saltpetre"

The debut work of this soul quartet rises from the first melody like the waves that in the living tides hit the Zarautz seafront, as fresh and sparkling as it is firm, in its elegant simplicity. The tsunami starts with the song "Arima Du" ("Got Soul") to dive into the swamps of New Orleans: the danceable rhythm & blues, the spirituality of gospel and the company of the brilliant brass-band brass of the Broken Brothers Brass Band.

Once under the influence of this voodoo, the listener will find himself or herself trapped in this blackness, like the alligator that cannot get out of the mud: the elegant soul of "Ilunabarra" ("Sunset"), the vindictive funk of "Gu Andereak" ("We The Women") or the touch of mod jazz that emerges from "Dortoka Pausoa" ("Turtle's Pace"), until reaching the Latin-jazz passages driven by the playful piano.

In this colourful ocean the band sinks its oars, from the present. And it does so surfing in Basque, thanks to the work of Lidia Insausti; one only has to listen to the elegant pieces of contemporary soul "Itsasoan" ("At Sea") and "Zerbait" ("Something") to capture Insausti's magic. Arima Soul's is one of the greatest soul exercises ever done in Basque language, and the result is rigorous and brave, as Lidia Insausti (vocals), Mikel Makala (bass), Paul San Martin (keyboards) and Gorka Gaztanbide (drums) have shown themselves capable of the feat of jumping between giant waves.

[ESP] ARIMA SOUL
"Negro con sabor a salitre"

La obra debut de este cuarteto de soul se alza desde la primera melodía como las olas que en las mareas vivas golpean el malecón de Zarautz, tan fresca y chispeante como firme, en su elegante sencillez. El tsunami parte de la canción "Arima Du" ("Tiene Alma") para sumergirse en los pantanos de Nueva Orleans: el bailable rhythm & blues, la espiritualidad del gospel y la compañía del brillante metal de las brass-bands, a cargo de los componentes de la Broken Brothers Brass Band.

Una vez bajo el influjo de ese vudú, el o la oyente se verá atrapado o atrapada en esa negritud, como el caimán que no puede zafarse del barro: el soul elegante de "Ilunabarra" ("Atardecer"), el funk reivindicativo de "Gu Andereak" ("Nosotras las Mujeres") o el toque de mod jazz que se desprende de "Dortoka Pausoa" ("Paso de Tortuga"), hasta llegar a los pasajes de latin-jazz impulsados por el juguetón piano.

En ese colorido océano hunde sus remos la banda, desde el presente. Y lo hace surfeando en euskera, gracias a la labor de Lidia Insausti; no hay más que escuchar las elegantes piezas de soul contenporáneo "Itsasoan" ("En el Mar") y "Zerbait" ("Algo") para captar la magia de Insausti. El de Arima Soul es uno de los mayores ejercicios de soul realizados en euskera, y el resultado es riguroso y valiente, ya que Lidia Insausti (vocales), Mikel Makala (bajo), Paul San Martin (teclados) y Gorka Gaztanbide (bateria) han demostrado ser capaces de realizar la hazaña de saltar entre las olas gigantes.
