release description

In the increasingly merciless music industry of the 21st century, Anané shines bright as an example of what a love for life, dedication to music and hard work can bring worldwide success. Chosen by Billboard Magazine as one of the "2008 Faces to Watch" columnists Kerri Mason raves, "Combining earthiness with glamour and roots-deep house music knowledge with pop wise diversity, Anané could be the first up-from-the-nightclub superstar since Madonna." This is the multi-talented singer-songwriter debut album on the US's pioneering Tommy Boy, and with it the world is set to discover the heartfelt, soulful and eclectic musical stylings of one of music's shining lights.

Having co-produced several tracks on ananésworld alongside Grammy Award-winning DJ-Producer Louie Vega, Anané has also teamed up with some of today's most innovative and exciting songwriters and artists in what has been her introduction to production. The album features dance, reggae, rock, r&b soul, world and Caribbean influences. Anané co-wrote nine of the songs with Grammy Award Winner Lisa Fischer, Duane Harden, Lem Springsteen, Kalu Montiero and Djim Djob, while other collaborators include Masters at Work, Mr. V, Louie "Lou" Gorbea, Bob Sinclar and Da Groove Doctors. Fellow Elements Of Life musicians Luisito Quintero (percussion), Mike Ciro (guitar) Jerard Snell (drums) and Gene Perez (bass) providing a fluid and powerful rhythm section, making ananésworld a labor of love that will further elevate Anané's star, reinforcing her reputation as an artist of ability and promise and - perhaps most importantly - emphatically demonstrating her lifelong commitment to her native roots.

ananésworld promises to redefine Anané in the eyes of her peers and those of her fans worldwide. A highly personal and spiritual reflection of her own life journey, Anané describes her album best, "It's the essence of who I am," she says. "These are my hopes, my aspirations and my dreams. It's my global expression; soundtracks to moments in my life."
