The Sway Machinery Release Show at the Bell House

Thursday, February 10th, 2011

This is the one and only NYC Sway Machinery Release Show!

The Sway Machinery featuring Khaira Arby at the Bell House is both an album release show and benefit for Mali, following the Sway Machinery’s recent time there. A percentage of the proceeds will go to benefit ASSADEC, a consortium of 300 women’s groups from small desert villages which provides AIDS information and instruction in the nomadic context. They are evolving into seeking capacity for micro finance of local women’s projects and other learning bases projects.

The Sway Machinery will release The House of Friendly Ghosts, Volume 1 March 8 on JDub Records (Pre-order is now available via the JDub Records Online Store). The band will begin their album release tour with this show in New York City and continue to Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle and Denver.

The new album, which features Timbuktu vocal superstar Khaira Arby, is already garnering interest thanks to features on Nat Geo Music, AOL Spinner, and The Huffington Post.

Chronicling Sway Machinery founder and mastermind Jeremiah Lockwood and company’s journey to Mali’s “Festival in the Desert” and subsequent collaboration with Arby earlier this year, the album explores ideas of diaspora, pilgrimage and spiritualism by pulling together an array of content including Arby’s songs, Lockwood’s compositions and field recordings captured along the way. While at the remote festival gathering the band performed with numerous Tuareg ensembles and watched as its broad base of influences meshed with those of some of the region’s most crucial artists.
