of Shakira live at Firefest is a unique
release from a rather unique band. The thing
that set this dvd apart from so many other
“so called” live dvd’s
today is that this is a real live recording!
It's the real thing, no overdubs except
a few small repaired parts caused from audio
drop-outs and errors on some of the original
recorded tracks. The concert features both
Andreas Eklund and Mikael Eriksson on vocals
and the crowd are obviously thrilled to
hear songs from all the bands records. This
release is a celebration to all who still
play in real bands versus the flooding market
of projects out there. House of Shakira
has been around for some fifteen years now
and the members are still in the band for
the same reason as when they started it
– to play the music they hear in their
heads no matter what the flavour of the
DVD is also a celebration of the history
of House of Shakira as it contains material
covering their whole history. You’ll
get to see the bands first steps on the
club scene in Stockholm, moving further
to some super rare TV-shows performances
right up to last years electrifying performance.
The band comments, “This is something
we dreamt about – to release a live
show so we really hope you will enjoy it
as much as we enjoy the time we’re
At Firefest 2005’ is dedicated to
the bands fans that haven’t yet had
the chance to see House Of Shakira live,
The DVD also boasts a more powerful sound
from the band, something than hasn’t
been fully captured on any studio recording
to date, On this band comments, “Some
friends of ours say that there’s like
two different bands, live and in studio.
Since this DVD contains very few overdubs
it gives you a good picture of how we sound
live – and we like it a lot!!!”
The DVD also shows the professionalism of
the band who had no sound check on the day
of the gig and only 10 minutes to prepare
before they hit the stage – any lack
of preparation does not show in the bands
performance, “We have played so many
gigs in the past with these kinds of circumstances
so nothing actually stops us from doing
our best onstage nowadays. The response
from the crowd was very good”.
