MIDEM 2018

Hi Dears,

I will be in the  MIDEM 2018 from 05/06 to 08/06. My big thanks to the MIDEM team.

People always ask me if I will be singing there. No, I will not because to sing there is necessary to have a LABEL and I don't have any LABEL or Manager or Producer. I never had!  In fact I have been producing myself for years and I would love to have a team, I would love to have a LABEL. I really want to find one ! Or maybe, they will find me somehow. Crossing my fingers.

My focus this year is to find my team , to find my LABEL!

I am also happy that one Brazilian artist I love will be in the MIDEM this year: Celso Fonseca . Oh my God, love him! An inspiration for me. I will watch the Celso Fonseca conference, since he will be a speaker .What a pleasure!

I will make photos and videos, I promisse,

I also would like to make it clear: My Josephine Baker project is an old dream and I love it but ...I also follow working with my Bossa Nova / MPB concerts and with my own music. 

So...if you want, contact me because my Josephine Baker project , you are welcome!

If you want contact me because you are interested in my Bossa Nova / MPB concerts or in my own songs, please do that! You are very welcome!

If you are a LABEL, Producer, Booker and you will be in the MIDEM this year , you are very welcome! Let's meet ? :)

Lots of kisses to all you,

Jussanam

 

 

 

 

 

Interview - About Josephine Baker project - Divertir.eu

D- Icelandic of Brazilian origin, Jussanam is currently preparing a show about the artist Joséphine Baker. With a lot of charm, she will trace the career of the artist. Internet users can also support their project in crowdfunding.

http://www.divertir.eu/blog/spectacles/jussanam-realise-un-spectacle-sur-josephine-baker.html#4vHYuUADI18zpHbH.01

D- Jussanam,can you present us the show about Josephine Baker that you are preparing? How do you imagine, what will be the staging ...?

J- We play a program where the vast majority of songs have never been performed by other shows that speak about Josephine Baker. It is a spetacle where we show the soul of Josephine but, an older Josephine. This is the Josephine I love, I do not sing like the Josephine of the 20s but I sing the Josephine mature.
The show is an independent production, a singer / actress and 4 musicians on stage. I sing and tell important parts of the life and career of Josephine Baker, we recalled that she was the first International Black Star, born American and who became French. We recall his last concert at the Bobino in Paris in 1975, his concert in Monte Carlo-Monaco, his international tour that includes South America and my country, Brazil. A show with lots of rhythms and a lot of emotion too.
We talk about her life as a mother with her 12 children at Château Les Milandes and her dream of a world without racism, a world of peace and unity.
The show has already had its premiere with the support of the Cannes City on 24/02/18 and with the presence of Josephine Baker's family members. The show has the approval of Josephine's family and they ask me to go ahead, don't stop. But it's difficult without support. For that, I seek support on an online platform (Ulule).

D- Why make a show about Josephine Baker? What do you like about the singer?
J- Josephine Baker is an old passion of me. Her life and career are a great inspiration. Her strength, her courage, her talent and her love for people are the things I like about her.

D- What personal touch will you give to the show?
J- My Brazilian touch, I was born in Rio de Janeiro, the city of Samba and Carnival. So, my touch is a Brazilian touch. And I do not dance the banana dance but, there is a surprise anyway.

What is your favorite song of Josephine Baker?
I chose for this show all my favorites. So, I like the whole program. But I can mention: J'ai deux amours, Avec and Vivre as my favorites.

Josephine Baker had many values ​​and artistic qualities, which ones would you like to continue to transmit?
J- Generosity on stage and in life, joie de vivre, the love for art and the love for children and for people in general.

D- You are currently doing crowdfunding, how will that help you?
The crowdfunding will help me to go ahead with the show, to pay the costs of the production, the new places for the performances (Theaters), we want to go everywhere in France with the show if we find the financing.

You can support Jussanam's show about Josephine Baker on Ulule.
 

D- What do you like about having an independent production? What are your main difficulties?
J- An independent production means that I have a total control of the artistic part and that is very good. We do art with all the love we have. But it's too difficult to see things grow if we do not have support, if we are alone and for that we arrive at a time we say: I need support, I need new collaborators, I need a Team.

D- When and where should the show begin?
J- The show must re-start as soon as we find the means to pay the technical costs / theaters / transport etc. We are ready, the production is ready. We find the funding, we re-start right away.

D- Will we be able to get some artifacts from the show, such as CDs or DVDs?
J- Yes, I also want to make a CD of the show and later a DVD. But for all that I need to find the funding.

D-Like Josephine Baker, you know different cultures: Brazil, Iceland ... Would you like to play this show in other countries?
J- Yes, that's the goal. In 2012 I managed to tour with my Brazilian music in all the Scandinavian countries with the support of the Nordic Culture Fund.
Now, I'm looking for support to do even more than that, with this project singing Josephine Baker. We start with France and after yes, we want to play in many other countries.

D-What do you want to say to finish?
J- We are ready! Support us and we'll arrive very soon with Josephine Baker near you. We would come with art, talent, our happiness and all our love. Thank you!

D-Merci à Jussanam d'avoir répondu à nos questions !

Jussanam AVEC Josephine Baker

Hi dears, this one is a very glad post. I even can say the most glad post ever! Because I realised a dream of long date, to singing Josephine Baker and telling her history with my Brazilian touch and with a lot of Brazilian rythmics. Yes, I am a Josephine Baker a la Bresilienne! :) But, without forget her soul , her essence. 

We had our premiere las Saturday, 24/02/18 in the Theatre Alexandre III in Cannes. 

The public and her family approuved the spectacle. How happy I am!

 

Can you imagine what it means to sing Josephine Baker with members of her family in the audience? Lots of emotion!!! I am so grateful that they came. Her son Louis Bouillon Baker is just a lovely one and I thanks his brother Jeannot Bouillon Baker that started to share the publicity of my concert on his facebook , calling attention of the rest of the family. I also thanks Delphine, Josephine Bake's grand-daughter because was her that made all contacts with me before the premiere. Delphine's brother  and his little daughter as well her husband also came and they are also very nice . Big thanks to the family!!! Who knows the little one will be an artiste as Josephine, because she got very excited when I asked then to come to stage to get some pictures with me. :)

I also need to say, how wonderful my musiciens are and say here a Big Thanks to them:

Eros Cordogli - Pianiste / Arrangeur - He did a wonderful job! His job with the partitions was vital to our project.

Georges Ferrero - Bassiste - A great musicien! Amazing!

Luciano Dantas - The only Brazilian as me, between the musiciens ! He is Great!

Cedric Le Donne - Batteur - The best I could have in the French Riviera, what a talent!

Then, I have the right musiciens for this project!

I created the spectacle and I directed myself on it ! ahahahhaha, no easy at all, lots of work but I am so proud of the result!

I am a Josephine Baker without bananes! :)

Do you know, I am an independent artist, I don't have a producer, or manager, or whatever professional to help with my artistic job in Europe. Sometimes, I think is not fair with me, follow this way, so alone, but if I don't do myself , when the things will happen? It's better to do myself! I have lots of things to show and I just can't keep to myself. When I see the happiness of my public I know my work it is worth! When everything is done , I know I accomplished my mission. Then, we go ahead! 

I got very beautiful messages of people that were in the audience 24/02, saying that they would love if I will get be more known , I got also a message from the Josephine Baker's family asking me to don't stop and show this spetacle more and more.They say they recognize my hard work on this project and they say about lots of emotion watching that and that it was really beautiful. Then...what do you think I will do? I hope show this concert everywhere that Will be possible. In France, abroad everywhere! Everywhere that are people interested in to know and remember the wonderful artiste and woman, Josephine Baker was!

Merci mes amours, Jean-Marc Laniece et ma fille Jaqueline Luquez pour tout soutien!

Merci Josephine Baker! Merci d'etre AVEC moi!!!

Jussanam

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Merry Christmas and a Happy 2018 !!!

Hello Dears,

Do you know I am preparing a Show where I will sing Josephine Baker and where I will remember also her fascinating  history?

Yes, we will make our Premiere in 24/02/2018 21;00  at  Theater Alexandre III, in Cannes. Independent Production.  Due the restaurations in the Miramar Theater the Cannes City changed the place of our Premiere to the Theater Alexqander III

Since I am so involved with my project about Josephine, I would love to share with you a very  touching video of a Christmas in the Josephine Baker's house with her children. She, in fact, adopted 12 children from several Countries, different cultures and religions and colours and they became her children, they rised up with her love, she was really their mother. 

Josephine Baker's dream was a better world where the humanity could live in peace, love and fraternity.

Every year we make our best wishes to the New Year but every year there are children suffering because of wars, poverty, violence.

We are still waiting for a time of love and peace for children of the whole world.

I hope you all a Merry Christmas and a great New Year 2018.

Jussanam
