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.

Sat 23 Sept > Rebel Up @ Sound From Lisboa: Luso Beat party, La Marbrerie, Montrieul (Paris)

SOUND FROM LISBOA #1 – LUSO BEAT

Lisboa, a cosmopolitan capital with thousands of colors. From Macao to Luanda, from Praia to Rio de Janeiro, the streets of Lisbon dance to the sounds of marrabenta, kuduro, funana, kizomba, samba and many others. A cultural laboratory where technology is combined with tradition in a process of creation, where folklore coexists with electronic music.

► DJÊU 🇨🇻 (Live) – Cabo Verde

► DJÊU 🇨🇻 ◄
Djêu – a Capeverdian music group – owes its name to l’Ile aux Oiseaux, which closes the Bay of Porto Grande, a strong symbol for the natives of São Vicente and Santo Antão. The group was born from the meeting between the brothers Elton and Valdir Da Cruz Lima and the singer Mónica Landim, who are gathered around the same desire to share their culture and the heritage of their country using a traditional repertory. Today, the music of the archipelago continues to develop and modernize thanks to the works of remarkable songwriters. It is in this idea of opening to the “current music” that the combo has just recorded his first EP called “Preto I Branco” at La CLEF (Saint-Germain-en-Laye).

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.
