Product Notes

'One of the most impressive locally recorded non-Hawaiian instrumental albums of the year... The collection as a whole takes on deeper luster with each repeated play...' - C.D review by John Berger Honolulu Star Bulletin Siblings Carole and Florent Atem are accomplished musicians hailing from the beautiful Tahitian islands. Carole is a master keyboardist, composer and vocalist who studied under Hawai'i's own Melveen Leed. Nicknamed 'Shredder Boy,' Florent is a passionate guitarist whose style reflects those of celebrated musicians such as Jimi Hendrix and Carlos Santana. Performing a broad base of musical styles, Carole and Florent are well established as innovative entertainers in Tahiti and their popularity is growing in Hawaii. They've performed with John Cruz, Jerry Santos, and Henry Kapono, among others. Their songs have been included on several compilations, including a sweet rendition of 'Ku'u Home O Kahalu'u' and 'Love and Honesty' on the popular 'Hawaiian Style' series. 'Southern Cross' is a collection of original music written and arranged by Florent, covering a spectrum of styles - from romantic soft pop to jazz rock; from new age to hard rock. 'Southern Cross is no doubt the first CD of a long series to come. It's 100% rock in all it's form, an unusual production in Tahiti. If you like Pat Metheny, Lee Ritenour, Al di Meala, Ted Nugent, Jimi Hendrix, Larry Corgell, Frank Zappa, Carlos Santa, you will love and adore the eleven original songs. You will make a trip from hard rock, jazz rock, new age rock. Technique, feeling, rhythm, energy are the main features of this CD that is going to amaze all the local rock music lovers. This CD is starting under a lucky star, Florent and Carole Atem's southern cross.' - Translation of an extract from a review published in the most respected newspaper in Tahiti, La Dépéche de Tahiti Hawai'i's ever popular Henry Kapono honored the young duo by declaring: 'Carole & Florent Atem are by far the most talented young artists I know...I had the pleasure of having them perform with me in Hawai'i at my place, Kapono's and their live performance blew me and the audience away. The future is theirs if they want it and I hope they take it.'
