Artist Info

Powered by Audioscrobbler™There are 2 projects called Xuman:

1. Russian indie electro-rock musician and singer (Alexander Xuman)
2. Senegal raggae hip-hop artist (Gunman Xuman)

1. Xuman began to experiment with music when he was 8 years old, recording his father’s guitar with little Panasonic tape recorder and using elder brother’s voice as a vocal. Experiments don’t stop today too. But now it is held at the spacious professional studio with interesting people and true friends.

Xuman has been seeking his own sound experimenting with different genres of electronic music: house, minimal techno, electro, IDM. Since 1999 Alexander performed as a DJ a lot at Moscow clubs, was touring in Russia, played in Europe, was releasing dance tunes and was making remixes. In 2007 Xuman have understood that it’s enough for him to play a DJ role. New period has come — Alexander decided to dedicate his life to search of something true. He always liked rock aesthetics and though he was into dance culture, he was (and still is) a fan of The Beatles, The Doors and contemporary music — like Future Sound Of London.

Alexander has come to fully understanding of what “Xuman” project is. And now he records his first solo album. Besides his solo project Xuman participates in electronic trio The O and rock band Camel in Space, not to mention producing and supporting creativity of other artists of his own record label, whose music can be heard on Xuman Records’ “Tales” compilation, which is planned to be released in autumn 2009.


2. Gunman Xuman de son vrai nom Makhtar Fall, ou "wakhkatou ndiaxum" ou bien encore Ousstass... est l’un des pionniers du rap sénégalais Il a fait ses débuts dans les années 90 dans le groupe Pee Froiss qui comptait:
- Bibson (en solo maintenant)
- Sister Joice
- Souley (ex membre de Jant Bi en solo maintenant)
- Aladji Man (membre de Daara J)
- Kool Kocc 6
- Gee Bayss (DJ)
Maintenant le groupe Pee Froiss n’est composé que des deux dernières artistes Kool Kocc 6, Gee Bayss et bien sur Xuman.

Xuman qui a vu le jour en en Cote d'Ivoire a grandit au Sénégal. Il commence à écrire ses premiers textes textes dans le quartier chaud de FASS, sa facilité d'écrire lui a permis de tisser des liens amicaux avec les membres du Positive Black Soul (PBS). Avec le Pee Froiss il a eu à participer à plusieurs grands événements musicaux tant au Sénégal qu’à l’étranger et il a collaboré avec plusieurs artistes d’ici et d’ailleurs comme Didier Awadi, les Nubians et tant d’autres. Ce longiligne bonhomme à la verve légendaire a eu à animer plusieurs fois les différents plateaux du 11 mai qui célèbrent chaque année l’anniversaire de la mort de Bob Marley. Il anime aussi des émissions à la radio et à la télévision.

Actuellement Xuman continu à faire le bonheur de son public avec ses textes engagés qui relatent la vie sociale, politique et dénonce aussi le mauvais rôle de l'occident en Afrique.
