United Flavour

About United Flavour: As the first impulse for foundation of the multi-cultural band called United Flavour can be considered the arrival of two founder members – singer Carmen and bass player Djei – to the Czech Republic. They were so excited by the atmosphere in Prague during their first visit here that they both decided to move to Prague in the second half of the 90´s.

After a short adaptation period, both Carmen and Djei joined the Czech cultural scene and started to collaborate with local and foreign musicians. They first met in the project called Hermakuti that by its quality amazed the Czech reggae scene. After Hermakuti fell apart, Carmen and Djei continued their co-operation and in spring 2004 decided to found United Flavour.

Different cultural influences of Spain, Africa and Central Europe in the UF music have been moulded into an energetic mix of several musical styles - reggae, latino, soul, hiphop, r’n’b and dancehall. Through their performances, the band wants to convey that people of different nationalities, origins, faiths and beliefs can work together without problems, conflicts or violence. Moreover, they can mutually enrich each other. The UF lyrics reflect the same idea.

The first studio recording, an eight-song demo EP, was issued in June 2005 and gained a great reception from both general public and critics. The single Revolution became a hit in the charts on a number of radio channels. It was successful enough to deserve its own compilation called Revolution Project which contains remixes by various Czech and foreign artists. Between fall 2006 and spring 2007 the band were hard at work writing and recording their debut CD. The long-awaited album was named UNITY and released under the SubPub Records label. Many interesting local and foreign guests accepted the invitation to feature on the album. Amongst these were King Kalabash & Baron Black aka Big Famili from the Caribean island of Martinique, the Slovak singer Tina, rapper Henry D or latino deejay El Condorsito from Chile.

Since the band was formed, United Flavour have been busily giving concerts both in the Czech Republic and abroad. During three years they got the opportunity to open concerts to international stars such as Kelis, Gentleman or Manu Chao. Within the successful concert season in 2006 the band played in Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Slovakia. Not surprisingly, they also contributed, with their colourful concert show, to the success of the majority of the Czech festivals. In December 2007 United Flavour had big club tour in the Czech Republic.
