Zonzo Records is a record label established by Zonzo Compagnie, the production house that conquers the world with BIG BANG festival and innovative music productions for children. With the cross-genre label, Zonzo Compagnie takes another step towards taking adventurous, high quality music to a young audience.
The music theatre production of Slumberland was loaded with stars in reviews and was called "one big highlight" by the press. The stunning nocturnal tour by An Pierlé, Fulco Ottervanger and Nathalie Teirlinck now also appears on CD and video on the new Zonzo Records label. Now you can also watch and listen to magical figures like moon girl and little sand man at home.
SONGS WITH ROOTS is Zonzo Records' second release. After the succesful SLUMBERLAND by An Pierlé and Fulco Ottervanger, Jan Van Outryve and Soetkin Baptist take you on a trip around the globe in a search for Root Songs. Composter and lutist Jan Van Outryve makes a selection from the colossal song archive of the American musicologist Alan Lomax. For the album SONGS WITH ROOTS, het made an arrangement for the wonderful voices of Soetkin Baptist, Aline Goffin and Naomi Beeldens, lute, cittern, ukulele, nyckelharpa (Didier François), double bass (Tim Vandenbergh) and percussion (Tijl Piryns).
Jan Van Outryve has once again scoured the inexhaustible archives of the ethno-musicologist Alan Lomax to find these songs. Together with singer Aline Goffin and the five member band that also recorded the first Songs with Roots Album, he breathes new life into these musical treasures from across the world.
