Singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist musician and poet, Aurélien Favere finished in 2013 his first album entitled "D'une Autre Galaxie" ("From Another Galaxy") which he signed under the name of Shamanluna. After studying classical piano, Aurélien Favère studied at the IMFP, a jazz school in Salon de Provence, France, and returned to Guadeloupe in 2001 to compose.
It is after many years of learning in the heart of his own recording studio in La Désirade, that he finishes this album with the co-production of 3 other professional recording studios in London, Barcelona and Paris. He is working in parallel with a studio based in Amsterdam for his next album.
The music style of Aurélien Favère is is hard to discribe, his universe is of his own : gliding, psychedelic, progressive, relaxant, poetics, liberator, hypnotic, mysterious and shamanic, in the delirious bright colors.
Fusion of various differents styles: atmosphere, new wave, electro music, classic, chill out, instrumental and theme music.
The influences are varied, between the 70s
( Pink Floyd, Tim Buckley, The Doors, king Crimson, Soft Machine, Sweet Smoke, Janis, Hendrix, etc.) until our days Sebastien Tellier, Dead Can Dance, Air …
His Music was often said as "hippy", it is inspired by improvisation and meditation, as enjoyment and ceremony party.
It is on a small island in the Caribbean that the album was composed. In La Désirade, different cultures from Africa, Latin America and Europe meet. We find them in the writing of this international album where songs in French, Spanish and English alternate. During years in solitary in his home studio, totally self-taught and inspired with passion, Aurélien Favere seeks an original musical color and far from any tradition.
In the album " From Another Galaxy "
Craig Walker singer of Mineral (ex-singer of Archive and power of dream) joined the experience as performer, singing 3 songs translated to french into English.
