a special *Sahel night* with with Studio Shap Shap (Niger)
6 musicians in the sand, under a straw roof. It is in the open air where Studio Shap Shap recorded their live album amidst bird cries and sounds from the capital city of Niamey, Niger. Traditional instruments (douma, talking drums, kindé, molo, komsa), electronic machines, bass, and piano intertwine with their sounds.
The band started off in 2015 as a project that was inspired by a new radio station in Niamey, which was searching for local musicians who could create 27 songs in three days for its broadcast programme. Studio Shap Shap are Oumarou Adamou (Niger), Boubacar Siddo Diallo (Niger), Seyni Halidou (Niger), Haruna Abdou (Niger), Christian Koulnodji (Chad) and Laetitia Cecile (Reunion Island). The six-piece ensemble is known for fusing traditional and contemporary beats, inspired by nature, the communities they live in and the band members’ historical backgrounds. Mixing nature and city, traditional and electro, speech and singing magnify the traditional instruments. Ancient knowledge to rely on and go beyond modernity for a true contemporary African sound. Despite the challenges, the group managed to independently release their debut album ‘Chateau I’. They have been busy recording their 2nd album which soon will be released. Travel with them into the modern sound of the Sahel! listen here > https://studioshapshap.bandcamp.com
with support by Rebel Up DJ’s SebCat & Leblanc in true Sahel spheres.

This friday, an Brazilian traditional electronic night at Recyclart!
Sociedade Recreativa arose from the meeting between Maga Bo and the French-Brazilian trio ‘Forro de rebeca’. Lovely airy music (live accordion and violin) from the tradition of the Nordeste (Samba de Coco, Capoeira, Baiao, Maracatu …) discrete but deadly effective mixed with the electronics of Maga Bo. https://sociedaderecreativa.bandcamp.com
closing the night with an electro-roots set > Maga Bo needs no introduction: one of the ‘founding fathers’ of the tropical bass, drenched deep in Brazilian rhythms (maracatu, samba reggae, capoeira …), with dark bass lines and thick layers of percussion. An example of a fluid interaction between organic and electronic sounds, inspired by hip hop and the soundsystem culture – but also by the middle east and the rest of your earthquake. https://magabo.com
Support by Rebel Up SebCat into Afro Brazilian roots & electronic spheres.

And although they have been active for 20 years, the band seems to break through this year with a wider audience.
