Zap Mama preview

This past summer, Zap Mama appeared at Summerstage amidst intense 90-degree heat and humidity, which ultimately took its toll both on the band and the audience. “New York can give more,” explains Marie Daulne, the band’s Congolese-born frontwoman. “It was hot out there, and the sun took away half of everyone's energy.”

As with many musicians, Daulne feels the night is the right time to make music. “Things are always better in a room once the sun is down and the lights go down,” she explains. She’s also excited about the prospect of performing Halloween night. “About seven years ago we were doing some studio work in Manhattan during Halloween, and we didn’t know about it. We went out and there was this collective 'Oh my God' from us. It was something special and scary at the same time.” (continue at NY Press)

On Monday, October 8, Starbucks will feature “Roda (Bombay Dub Orchestra's Grateful Dub Radio Mix)” by Six Degrees recording artist CéU (pronounced “cell with a light L”) as their “Song of the Day.” Currently this exclusive song is only available through this promotion. Each morning and while supplies last, Starbucks customers nationwide can discover that day’s complimentary download as part of their daily coffee routine. Upon receiving their complimentary download card at Starbucks, customers will have until the end of the calendar year to redeem the song on the U.S. iTunes Store.

This is not the first time Starbucks has chosen to feature CéU. In April 2007, she was selected as the first international artist featured in the Starbucks Hear Music™ Debut series. Since then, she has received a chorus of press plaudits, came off of two sold-out U.S. tours, and scored unprecedented chart numbers for a Brazilian artist -- #1 on Billboard’s World Music charts, #1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart, and #57 on the Billboard Hot 100. In addition, her beautiful album cover graced the high-profile Apple iPhone commercials and she had a stunning performance at the 2007 Pan American Games opening ceremony, which was recognized worldwide.

CéU at Highline Ballroom Oct 23; Tickets available here.
