Member News: Karlex Launches First High-Speed TGV Train Tour In France
Posted on Sunday, April 22 @ 06:24:27 MDT by roadrash
 BandsMannieb writes "The seven day tour will bring Karlex on the Paris-Perpignan TGV train line, performing tracks from his album "Ghetto Fabulous" at the respective stations as well as the "Bar iDZinc"

IDTGV, a part of the SNCF which runs France's high-speed TGV trains, has selected Haitian-American singer-songwriter Karlex to perform it's first musical tour. The seven day tour will bring Karlex's Afro-Groove music on the Paris-Perpignan TGV train line, where he will perform tracks from his new album "Ghetto Fabulous" at the respective stations as well as at the "Bar iDZinc" in the lounge car during the voyage.

The concert is part of IDTGV's strategy to create a 'new' travel experience, including on-board entertainment. As part of the tour, Karlex will be featured on the iDTGV.com website, on over 80,000 specially printed ticket holders as well as on posters throughout the trains. The IDTGV tour follows a five-day tour in the Netherlands, where the album was recently released, and performance at La Foire de Paris / Festival Tropiques en Fetes in Paris on April 29.

Karlex soulfully fusses the vibes of his native island with funky guitar sounds and heavy bass, in a unique blend called Afro Groove. "Ghetto Fabulous" has been making waves in France since its release in September 2006. The album was selected by "Arte TV" as an October Event and by "Radio Africa No 1" as Album Of The Week leading up to the release. Karlex was invited to perform on his song "I've Got News For You..." France 2's 'Live Acoustic', while also being chosen by Acoustic Fuel as a 'Daily ReFill - In Celebration of Black History Month.'

Karlex is a member of the MusicDish Network, a complete artist development program, leveraging brand development, saturated and relationship marketing, digital distribution and industry outreach to support emerging artists' and bands' careers.
