Aero Manyelo
Born in Zebediela, Limpopo in 1987, and growing up in the Johannesburg township of Ivory Park, Manyelo was influenced by his father’s love of jazz – and his music has a depth that distinguishes it from South Africa’s plethora of house music. Township Electro is how Manyelo describes his sound and sees him ready to take it to increasing numbers of fans around the globe and at home. Over the past decade, Manyelo’s career has been rapidly gaining momentum on the back of a string of releases on labels such as Out Here Records, Akwaaba Music, Get Physical Music and his own label Herbal 3 Records. His considerable remix skills have also been in demand (Amadou & Mariam’s “Ce N’est Pas Bon” and Jupiter & Okwess International’s “Margarita”), while his original tracks have been included in several high-profile international compilations, and has worked with many renowned artists.

Sat 29/04 > Rebel Up @ Akuphone label estafette @ Niko Matcha + Café Midpoint

Rebel Up , NGHE Mediatheque & Drache Musicale present Akuphone label estafette night in Niko Matcha & MIDPOINT CAFE & BAR (neighbour bars), starting in Niko Matcha, afterparty in Midpoint.

Akuphone is a french independant label focused on rare global pop and folk music from the early 1950’s to the late 1980’s, led by Cheb Gero (aka Fabrice Gery) and Tinmar (aka Martin Jay), both record collectors. The label is inspired by the need to release music that has not been released before to western audiences. It aims at linking these productions to their historical and political contexts, placing them back in the social and cultural conditions in which they emerged. Akuphone ambitions to promote “hyphenated music” and its diversity without emphasizing such ambiguous notions as intermixing and hybridity, which can be considered as commonly accepted stances tinted with eurocentrism.

Cheb Gero (Akuphone)
Cheb Gero is a collector and a music enthusiast. After being a record dealer for many years, he launched the Akuphone label in an “archives” spirit and a desire to “explore the world in music”. In an approach to musical archeology, he seeks to highlight the work of artists, musicians, singers and singers who, in the so-called Western countries, are ignored or unknown Far from a romantic or fetishist view of extra-Western music, the label’s objective is to articulate these cultural productions with their historical and political context and to re-situate them in their social and cultural conditions of appearance.
