Jimi Hendrix – The Artist

James Marshall Hendrix (born Johnny Allen Hendrix; 1942 – 1970) was an American rock guitarist, singer, and songwriter. Although his mainstream career spanned only four years, he is widely regarded as one of the most influential electric guitarists in the history of popular music, and one of the most influential musicians of all time. Hendrix was inspired musically by American rock and roll and electric blues. He favoured overdriven amplifiers with high volume and gain, and was instrumental in popularising the previously undesirable sounds caused by guitar amplifier feedback. He was also one of the first guitarists to make extensive use of tone-altering effects units, such as fuzz tone, Octavia, wah-wah, and Uni-Vibe in mainstream rock. He was the first artist to use stereophonic phasing effects in music recordings. Holly George-Warren of Rolling Stone commented: “Hendrix pioneered the use of the instrument as an electronic sound source. Players before him had experimented with feedback and distortion, but Hendrix turned those effects and others into a controlled, fluid vocabulary every bit as personal as the blues with which he began.

Voodoo Chile- The Song

“Voodoo Chile”  is a song written by Jimi Hendrix and recorded in 1968 for the third Jimi Hendrix Experience album Electric Ladyland. It is based on the Muddy Waters blues song “Rollin’ Stone”, but with original lyrics and music. At fifteen minutes, it is Hendrix’s longest studio recording and features additional musicians in what has been described as a studio jam. “Voodoo Chile” was recorded at the Record Plant in New York City, after a late night jam session with Hendrix, Experience drummer Mitch Mitchell, organist Steve Winwood, and bassist Jack Casady. The song became the basis for “Voodoo Child (Slight Return)”, recorded by the Experience the next day and one of Hendrix’s best-known songs. The single is an edited version at 5.05 minutes. “Chile” is a phonetic approximation of “child” without the “d”. In the UK, “Voodoo Chile” was also used as the title of the 1970 single release of “Voodoo Child (Slight Return)”, that has caused confusion regarding the two songs.

The Voodoo Doll – The Shape

Modelled into a stuffed Voodoo Doll pierced with pins. The term Voodoo doll is commonly employed to describe an effigy into which pins are inserted. Although it comes in various different forms, such practices are found in the magical traditions of many cultures across the world. Although the use of the term Voodoo implies that the practice has links to either the religion of Haitian Vodou or Louisiana Voodoo, in reality, it does not have a prominent place in either. In contrast to popular belief is is thought that the dolls originated in Britain when people made dolls of a witch out of rags and other materials and then pierced them with pins with the intention of inflicting physical harm on the witch and breaking their bewitchment.
