20:00 Andru Donalds. The Golden Voice of Enigma
You can't ignore Andru Donalds: the Jamaican is almost two meters tall (6 foot something), trim and athletic. Most obvious characteristics are his long dreads - almost notorious for any man from the Caribbean island. In contrast to most if his countrymen, Andru Donalds is not only about Reggae and Rastafari mythology. This is easily explained by the experiences of his childhood and youth. His musical development was moulded by the most different influences. In this respect, too, his father played an important role. He spent some time in England, Holland and France trying to make it as a musician. But for many years it didn't quite seem to work. Andru Donalds had already been thinking of giving up music and going back to Jamaica, when renowned producer Eric Foster-White offered him a contract. The result was his very successful debut album "Andru Donalds", released in 1995. The super-relaxed hit single "Mishale" climbed the US charts up to number four. And in Europe and the Far East, too, "Mishale" clung fast to the charts for a long time. His ambition to create "universal World Pop" - as Donalds calls his music - of great diversity and full of atmopshere, turned out to be right and successful. He slowed down for his second album, though. In 1998, "Damned If I Don't" was released. Shortly after the release, Andru Donalds got a call from producer Michael Cretu (Enigma). "He was on vacation in Greece and had heard "Mishale" and wanted me to sing on his Enigma project", Andru Donalds remembers, "at first, I was a little surprised but then I said to myself, why not." Donalds and Cretu met and both realized quickly that they'd get along very well. (Source:
