Eighty-year-old Dona Onete, the great singer of the Amazon culture, shows with her new album Rebujo that quality is not an age. While the Brazilian government is turning its back on the minorities in Brazil, Onete embraces diversity – especially in its state of Pará – which, in its opinion, is “the most diverse in Brazil with its mix of colors, rhythms and tastes”. Dona Onete, a former teacher, political activist for indigenous cultures and culture minister, started her music career ten years after she had officially “retired”. She first encouraged people with her challenging texts.
At her concerts she wraps everyone up with carimbós, dance music with a strong African groove, and bangues, dancing with a ska-like rhythm; supplemented with cumbia, brega and samba.
warmup & afterparty support by Rebel Up SebCat & Drache Musicale. and during, a dance demonstration by Patricia Tambeur.

This friday, concert of trio Sakili, acoutstic sega & tambour music from the Indian ocean!
Sakili’s music reflects the history of Rodrigues Island, combining European and African influences: waltz, polka, mazurka, schottische, they all blend harmoniously to the rhythms of sega drumming, traditional from the times of African slaves. Moreover, as globalization also influences the vast expanses of the Indian Ocean, there are of course, in some of the songs, elements of overlap with the western world or more recent preoccupations.
The Creole sega is sensual music and dance, with African influences, which was, in origin, a cultural form of resistance by slaves against the colonial rulers, but the culture turned little by little into a ritual that has in the end become rooted in tradition and lastingly incorporated in the way of life. The style of performance, sega drumming, is a vibrant mixture of music, consisting mainly of percussion, sin or status.
The Trio Sakili comprises three major ambassadors of Rodrigues sega: Vallen Pierre Louis is a banjoist well known and highly appreciated on the island. Francis Prosper belongs to one of the most important musical clans of the island and is without any doubt the best traditional percussionist and provides, with his warm timbre, the powerful voice of Sakili. Third in the line-up, Ricardo Legentile plays the accordion, the leading local melodic instrument, a heritage of the multiple influences on the island. The repertoire and the subtleties of his playing technique have been handed down from father to son for several generations of the family, while his mother, Yolande Legentile, belongs to the famous singers, the Mareshals of Sega in Rodrigues.
Afterparty in foyer by Rebel UpSebCat & Drache Musicale. Also stand by NGHE Mediatheque with special cassettes between maloya and sega.
Let’s shake our bellies on wild arabic & middle-eastern grooves, from traditional reggada and psychedelic bellydance to electro-chaabi, dabke and arab bass!
