Jusbox - Icon Collection - Siren & Sailors
For Siren & Sailors Julien Rasquinet plays with a fascinating melody of warm, feminine and sensual tones. With a delicate prelude of bergamot, peach and osmanthus, the heart note unfolds from a blend of Rose Essential LMR, rum Absolute and whiskey chords, the patchouli, vanilla, suede and musk is worn. As enchanting as the siren wooing the sailors.
Camden Town and Amy Winehouse - Amy Winehouse and Camden Town
Amy Winehouse came from the culturally influenced London district of Camden Town and embodied it with her music in all its facets. This district, which is probably the most interesting and versatile of London, influenced her in her art. Here, tolerance and otherness were and still are very important. She performed legendary concerts in the Roundhouse, an old railway shed that became a concert stage in the 1960s when the cultural and musical revolution reached Camden Town.
Similar to the siren from the legend, which enchanted the sailors with her voice, she pulled with her extraordinary talent, her characteristic sweet and rough voice and her musical combination of Soul, Jazz and Rythm & Blues the people in their Spell. She composed effervescent melodies, strong rhythms and passionate lyrics and embodied like no other the energy, the sound, the colours and the Opposites Camden Towns.
Great changes had taken place here in the course of history. By the end of the 19th century, industry had flourished with the opening of the Regent's Canal and the construction of the railway line: piano manufacturers, wine merchants, gin distilleries and whiskey warehouses sprang up, transforming the once quiet suburb into a lively area full of hustle and bustle. In the 1960s, the aforementioned cultural and musical revolution shaped Camden Town's image and changed the old industrial district forever. All of this influenced Amy Winehouse as an artist - in contrast, she shaped today's Camden Town in her very own way, which is still noticeable today.
