Sat 18 Nov > El Pulpo Collective goes Afro Latino @ La Tentation, w/ Ussu N’djai + Pigmaliao

On saturday, the return of El Pulpo collective with Rebel Up in La Tentation.
A very special Afro Latino concert & party night with an Afro Portuguese touch, with the band Ussu N’Djai & The New Balansa from Guinee Bissau/Senegal/Amsterdam and producer/DJ Pigmaliao from Brasil and more surprises.

Ussu N’djai & The New Balansa
the Amsterdam-based group of Ussumane ‘Balansa’ N’djai brings an exciting mix of different West-African music styles (m’balax, m’gumbeh, Afro-Mandingo, Carribean reggae, salsa and funk.) Balansa composed the songs with texts in different West-African languages such as Wolof, Mandingo, Creole, French, English and Portugese, a true afro latin mixture with cultural roots.

Pigmalião (BR)
Pigmalião is the materialization of the reference from the label Frente Bolivarista and remains in constant transformation alongside the label release narrative. Frente Bolivarista has made a stellar rise over the past year to be one of the labels to watch for the future of Latin America music.  Brazilian musical legacy has always seemed somewhat set apart from the rest of the continent but the label, alongside the growing links between booming São Paulo and Buenos Aires, Quito or Lima shows that the tide is changing. It is indeed the becoming, and going even further than, the musical version of Bolivar’s dream: a global collaboration of new, inter infected, border hopping sounds shaping the future of Latin American music.

El Felino Macabre y los de la Cava (AR/ UR / CB / CL / MX / Bxl)
Argentinian Singer-guitarist Leandro Capello and his Latin American friends had the nice idea to combine their music sessions in Brussels with musical energy and dynamism of all the band members. Expect a very festive opening set with Latino rock and *Whisky* cumbia.
