VenusTRIBES are a cinematic blend in the midst of alternative music. Fusing world beat, dark wave and jazz the project creates a synthesis of beautiful. VenusTRIBES were founded by Jose DeChamp, eclectic singer-songwriter and music producer based in London, UK. VenusTRIBES published concept album 'Siddhartha' (2011) and album '7 Colours' (2013), an alternative album with orchestral, cinematic arrangements.
Concept album ‘Siddhartha’ was inspired by Hermann Hesse’s mystical novel ‘Siddhartha’, describing a traveller’s inner journey. Ethereal chords, soulful vocals and tribal drums take onto a journey of jazz-fusion and cinematic sounds. Siddhartha-Song “Red Gaia” was a finalist in the Eco Arts Awards 2013.
