"At the occasion of the new release of the cd entitled "A Brand New World", which is a tribute to the kind of sound that was inside of me since my childhood, I retrospect from 1987, when the band that was later named "PIX LAX" started in an old stone house in Menidi, Athens until now. As of now and for some time I will be travelling along with the music I was raised with and the people behind the music. This was named at some time:ROCK FROM THE WEST BANK!!!!So, apart from the songs of PIX LAX and from the songs of my own personal musical course, a very special place will be given to songs from other fellow musicians, adapted to the sound that started just before the 90s and reached the present, breathing and changing with no needs of any photo shop slogan ".P.P.Don't miss this unique performance!!!!
HERE COMES THE SUMMER AGAIN
Do you remember when, in June, you were counting the days for the school bell to ring for the last time?This is how Imam Baildi feel before the summer, balancing between excitement, impatience and accumulated energy, knowing that they have the most beautiful musical journey ahead. A journey into the emotionally-filled live summer evenings where public and artists become one. This year they even have more reasons to be happy:A sold out live album that climbed straight at the top of the I Tunes sales charts. A mostly successful tour in 20 European cities and in Athens at the "Passport Keramikos" evenings. And Rena Morfi's (singer) release of her first solo album entitled "Souli Anatoli" produced by Imam Baildi.Summer is back again for Imam Baidi and their journey will, this year, include a stop at the IREON MUSIC FESTIVAL in Samos on August 08 2016.As always, supplied by their explosive stage presence, their beloved songs and, of course, by new ideas and surprises that never miss from their program.Stay tuned in Imam Baildi's social media and in their brand new web page (imambaildi.com) for the start of the pre-sales and for all the information about their brand new summer tour.

Soul Fire's career was boosted in 2004 as their collaboration with famous producer Mad Professor and the record company Music Kitchen brought an outstanding record. In this album feature famous artists such as Sinclair - member of Lee "scratch" Perry's band "Robotics", Aisha, Cofi and Mafia at the backing vocals and MC Fredi Kruga.Soul Fire's first Ep entitled "The Outtake Mixes" went out in August 2004 and the Lp "Soul Fire" was released in July 2005.The single "Rasta People We Are" was released in May 2013 and, in July 2013, the 2nd Lp "Wake Up Your Lion'.
