Fille d’une famille d’expatriés, Jain passe une partie de sa jeunesse à Pointe, Noire, au Congo. Nourrie par les influences toutes en swing de ses parents, d’Aretha Franklin à Janis Joplin jusqu’à Otis Redding, Jain se met très vite à pratiquer la guitare et la batterie avant de composer ses propres morceaux. Et de les enregistrer, grâce à ce jeune homme que lui présentent ses amis du lycée : “Monsieur Flash”, un passionné de rumba habitué des scènes de Pointe Noire, qui dispose chez lui de tout un matériel de studio. “La soul de mes parents, et mes années africaines sont ancrées en moi. Ma musique a toujours été pleine de couleurs, donc”, décrit ici Jain.

Suivant les pérégrinations de ses parents, celle-ci quitte bientôt l’Afrique pour découvrir ensuite les Emirats Arabes Unis et leur capitale Abu Dhabi. Là-bas, elle apprend à maîtriser les percussions orientales et ajoute à son répertoire d’inspirations les envolées de la grande voix arabe Ferouz. Surtout, passant des différences culturelles de l’Afrique à l’Orient, Jain se forge une conscience du monde. “J’ai eu une jeunesse déroutante. J’ai vu des choses qui m’ont permis de savoir sur quelle planète je vis, avec ses différences, explique la chanteuse. Cela me permet de garder la tête froide.”.

Arrivée à Paris, Jain rencontre le producteur Yodelice qui la signe sur son label Spookland, mélangeant leurs expériences, naitra son premier album. Zanaka, “enfant” en langue malgache, dit tous ces enthousiasmes, ces secousses et cette délicatesse des pays de soleil qui ont fait la vie de Jain jusque-là. Un journal du cœur de dix morceaux dont le fameux “Makeba”, et sa célébration puissante de l’Afrique.

Paru en 2015, ce premier album consacré triple disque de platine vaut même à Jain la Victoire de la musique de l’interprète féminine de l’année en 2017 et une nomination aux Grammy’s Award, à New York, au début de l’année 2018. Depuis la sortie de Zanaka, Jain prend toujours plus la route : elle compile aujourd’hui plus de deux cent dates de concert. Il y a eu les 30 000 personnes qui l’ont applaudie devant la scène du festival des Vieilles Charrues, en France ou bien toutes ces salles d’Amérique, de Nashville à Los Angeles et New York, où Jain est venue faire découvrir sa musique, s’imposant ainsi comme l’une des principales artistes francophones outre-Atlantique. “Là-bas, il a fallu convaincre. J’avais l’impression de retrouver une base”, note Jain.

De nouvelles expériences qui finissent par pousser la jeune toulousaine à reprendre le chemin du studio. “Un nouveau souffle”, dit-elle simplement. Toujours accompagnée de Yodelice, Jain a passé les derniers mois à mettre la main sur un deuxième album donnant à saisir un peu plus fort cette passion amoureuse pour le rythme. Bien sûr, ici il est encore question d’Afrique, comme sur le morceau “Oh Man”, accompagné du kora malien Sidiki Diabaté, fils du légendaire Toumani. “Ceci dit, je voulais évoluer aussi, ajoute Jain. Aller au-delà de ce qui me suit toujours. Cette fois, il y a un mélange.”

Avec Souldier, celle qui a fêté cette année ses 26 ans, creuse sa curiosité pour le monde et ses variations.

She was your light, and she had your heart

For the first time in your life, you saw her, you could fly
For the first time in your life, you loved her, she loved you back
For the first time in your life, you felt alive

Dancing in rio, leaving the dream,
Before the time goes and takes the lead
After a while, she had to go
In another country, away from you

For the first time in your life, you loved so much you could die
For the first time in your life, you saw her, you could fly
For the first time in your life, you loved her, she loved you back
For the first time in your life, you felt alive

You better cry man, you better cry, it only means you care
You better cry man, you better love man
You better love man, love man it only means you share
You better love man , you better cry man

Pushing the limits of music from the inside

In the shadows of your walls
I wanted to see it all

I’m taking all i can from the desert sound
Move back there, so i could move on

Move back there, so i could move on
I’m taking all i can from the desert land

I miss the day
Your songs raise me up
And the way you dance and the way you move
I found true love back on the road

And between your dunes
And under your moon
Your voice came through
Straight into my soul

Move back there, so i could move on
I’m taking all i can from the desert sound
Move back there, so i could move on
I’m taking all i can from the desert land

Come

02’’42

Black burn. I feel so alone
without you boy
now I 'm here
hanging out in the street
thinking about reactions over actions
walking on the sky of my dreams

Come, come, my baby come
I will show you the world
Come, come, my baby come
I will cover your nightmares
Come, come, my baby come
I will love you forever
Come, come, my baby come
I will not let you go

My love, I just feel so lost
without you boy
I am yours even if time has passed
Take me away
from this impetuous world
leaving this jail of my mind

My soul, my soul is in Africa, with you boy....

My soul, is in Africa with you boy
Looking at the stars
on this diamond sky
giving you my heart
so you can keep it on your mind
floating on your blazing eyes

Heads Up

03’’31

CHORUS
heads up, for the light, where we’ll never die,
under the moonlight, we’ll start our own fight,
heads up for this time, where fear is not a leader,
where open mind is stronger, where life is for lovers,(x2)

VERSE
heads up all the way ,because it's too late to be afraid,
there's no time to rest , i want to go and see what's next,
I see colors all around, i try to take them one by one,
i try to put them on my mind so i won't forget how they are

time for me to see how much beauty, this, can be,
if only i wasn't so scared of how people can be,
it's time for me to try, to keep, all of my dreams awake,
away from the fear, from the hate we've made.

CHORUS
heads up, for the light, where we’ll never die,
under the moonlight, we’ll start our own fight,
heads up for this time, where fear is not a leader,
where open mind is stronger, where life is for lovers,(x2)

VERSE
heads up on the road, all the stars begins to glow,
carrying away all the shadows, scarring us, scarring you,
I want to dance on my way home, i want to see a brand new dawn,
no more shame, no more pain,it's always free to give a chance,

time for me to take all the wealth we cannot stole,
it's our differences that make the richness of our souls,
it's time to walk around and try to find a sound,
way up near the cloud and way down in the ground,

CHORUS
heads up, for the light, where we’ll never die,
under the moonlight, we’ll start our own fight,
heads up for this time, where fear is not a leader,
where open mind is stronger, where life is for lovers,(x2)

let's sing for everybody now (x4)

Mr Johnson

CHORUS

VERSE
every day he dreams to walk
away from these office doors
everyday he dreams for more
he dreams for a change to come

it's hard to find a way, in a middle of a crowd
and it's always hard to say if our doubts are wrong or right

CHORUS
oh mr johnson must get out
mr johnson must be free
mr johnson must get wild
before the night

VERSE
every day he feels the same
he feels the same old little pain
when he looks up in the sky
when his dreams are flying far

that's how he realizes,
he has to make a change,
he won't let any man, cross his rise to life

CHORUS
oh mr johnson must get out
mr johnson must be free
mr johnson must get wild
before the night

VERSE
he runs to get out he rushes to get out,
he wanna feel the sun warming his mind
he better watchout and not gonna burn out,
finding his way,flying away...

don't you worry don't you run, there's a place to lay your head,
don't you know how to stand up and make this world your home,
if you feel like giving up, i'll make you feel at home ;

ohoh, now you you feel it, time to feel good about you to take a good break,
ohoh, now you feel it, peace inside your mind ,got to live,

wake up in the morning, just need coffee
life seems to me so easy, I’m just confused
between my dreams and your reality
wake up in the morning, just want to see
your true faces looking at me i am the same
I have not change i have just growing up

I am just here thinking about you
you just change my life for good
now it’s time for me to thank you
and to say that I love you babe
I am just here for you anytime
if you need me, you know where I am
every time I’ll be by your side
got to say that I love you baby

lying down on my bed I just want to hold
some of our past that passed so fast
I couldn’t see it I couldn’t catch it
but our story’s not finished
lying down on my bed I just feel like
we are still in the same country
still your bad jokes, still your weird laughs
oh, I miss you girls ladies, ladies, ladies, only you can say that you know me.
Ladies, ladies, ladies, you’re closer than my destiny. Ladies oh...

wake up in the morning playing the games you always win
me cheating, you yelling at me
wake up in the morning, i’m just smiling at everything,
never forget what you gave to me.
