Lyrics by Bet.e
The Banjo Consorsium began in 2005 as a
studio project led by multi-instrumentalist Japh. Born in a musician
family(his father a jazz guitarist and mother a singer and pianist), he
started playing music when he was 5 years old, learning both cello and
piano. From punk to folk, prog, techno and electronica, his taste for
different genres combine in this neo-folk electronic mix. The project
obtained international notoriety with both of it’s albums, A Turning
One, and the subsequent remix compilation, titled A remixed one.
Directed by Japh‘s refined ear, the band has benefited from serious
rotations in Canada in Europe, as the band’s myspace page can
attest.Currently in pre-production for a third album, the Banjo
Consorsium doesn’t cease to impress and satisfy the ear of a growing
number of folktronic amateur, a style that crosses folk music (notably
with the use of banjo’s, mandolins) and the use of modern production
techniques, including sampling.The outfit must, however, be seen live,
as they evolve onstage in a different direction then on album, as the
material becomes more dynamic and open, musically speaking.
