Two worlds meet on the international bridge called Soul Music . Vernon's original Motor-Town deep sound melts with Vahimiti's Mediterranean style in a personal and modern tribute to their music heroes and old-school influences.

(ITALIAN)

Il progetto di debutto di Vahimiti, Motown Dream, nasce dall'incontro musicale fra la cantante/cantautrice italiana e Vernon D. Hill , musicista e produttore di Detroit (Usa).
Due mondi si collegano grazie al ponte internazionale della Soul Music . Il raffinato suono underground di Vernon originario della Motor Town si fonde con lo stile più Europeo e Mediterraneo di Vahimiti in un moderno e personale tributo ai loro comuni eroi musicali ed influenze old school.
Il sogno Soul di Vahimiti ha inizio...
"...you know I'm flyin' real high in my mind / it's really so fine / crousin' around in my dream / with a Soul band / so high in my mind / so high in my dreams...".

Qualche informazione in più :
Vahimiti è una cantante/ cantautrice italiana cresciuta attraverso le vibrazioni del Soul, Hip Hop, R&B, Blues, Jazz e il mito e le note della cultura Maori (Polinesia Francese ,dove ha vissuto e dalla quale proviene il suo nome) . La sua musica è un insieme di queste influenze ed unisce alla musica dell’anima richiami etnici e sinuosità mediterranee. Proprio alle vibrazioni più Soul e ai suoi eroi musicali dedica questo primo progetto di inediti intitolato “Motown dream” nato dall’incontro con il producer e musicista nativo di Detroit, Vernon D.Hill (Dwele, Slum Village, Bahamadia, Joy Denalane) che ne cura la produzione musicale rendendo il sound soul da lei sempre sognato ,una realtà .
