The new and tenth album of IAM is called "Yasuke". This title says a lot. On the philosophy of the group, on its course, on the world of yesterday and today.
Yasuke was an African slave who, in the 16th century, became a samurai in Japan.
It is the impossible that becomes possible. It is the refusal to lay down arms, the desire to go beyond the irremediable. IAM comes from far away. To the complaints of the assisted, he has always preferred struggle, survival, passion. IAM had nothing and never refused himself anything. What did not exist yet, IAM shaped it, patiently, intensely, collectively. To advance, whatever the cost, to advance and conquer the fear, the doubt, the invisible borders, be they social, political, artistic.
