It gives me great pleasure to present "Kiss Surya Alive", my first album recorded with a group configuration!
The live version of the album "Kiss Surya" developed during numerous concert performances and took on a whole new identity from the studio album. It become important to me to immortalise this outcome through a recording to celebrate the work and pay tribute to the talented musicians who participated on this journey:
Drums: Fabien Vodoz
Bass: Livio Melileo
Bass musical arrangements: Alex Alflatt
Cello: Sara Olswald
Cymbalom: Yvan Braillard
Vocals, guitar, other effects: Aurélie Emery
Recorded and mixed by Wassim Abdulla at FullrangeStudio in Vevey, in early 2016.
And what better way to engrave this precious jewel then on the most sensual and analogical of mediums; vinyl! The vinyls were engraved individually by Pixel Groove in Yverdon.
The collector vinyl edition of this live album includes: hand-painted vinyl and cover with 4 silver print photographs by Mehdi Benkler and a 6-title CD with lyrics.
Price: CHF 60.–
The 35-minute CD includes: 4 silver print photographs by Mehdi Benkler, CD with 6 tracks and hand-painted cover with booklet including lyrics printed on a peat art paper.
Price: CHF 30.–

A huge thank you to everyone involved directly and indirectly in project; an adventure of this kiss stolen from the sun. Thanks to my family, all my friends and to the “Service de la Culture” of the canton of Valais for their support.
