Silvino Branca Trio * live funaná * (Cabo Verde/Lisboa) Born in the neighbourhood of S. Domingos (Santiago island, Cabo Verde), Silvino Branca is an important figure in modern funaná, part of the generation that inherited the sound of Codé di Dona, Sema Lopi, Julinho, Bitori or Tchota Suari. Like them, Silvino Branca is a ‘homi di gaita’ (accordion man) and fully embodies the new funaná generation raised in the ghettos of Cabo Verde, where he started playing at the tender age of 7. With the inspiration and influence of the old masters, he brings traditional funaná in its newest accelerated style: Cotxi Pó. A wild mix of shorter funaná accordion melodies with abrupt changes and more obvious hypnotism, dropping lyrics and references to times of poverty, drought and persecution experienced by the previous generation. These roots, strength and muscle have made the Cotchi Pó style extremely popular in Cabo Verde. Silvino is joined by bass guitar player Carlos da Veiga (Julinho da Concertina / Pedrinho band) and his wife Maria Das Dores Diop on ferro. Their Cotxi Pó sound is feverishly psychedelic with long trance-like compositions, the pace never slows down. Can you keep up? Puxa! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=codTLJyjNpo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y29W4pvANAk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2fn2Zkk_jr4
CelesteMariposa (Lisboa) Wilson Vilares aka Celeste Mariposa started out in the techno scene but the powerful music of the PALOP countries lured him in and he became a true connoisseur of Luso-African music from Angola & Cabo Verde, Guinee Bissau, Sao Tomé and Lisboa. Celeste Mariposa is also a label imprint, releasing talented Luso-African artists living in the Lisboa area such as Chalo Correia and Julinho da Concertina (both played in Bxl the last few years). Expect psychedelic roots funaná, colafunk, electro passada, semba, rebita, kizomba roots and much more! https://soundcloud.com/celestemariposa
DJ Kolt (Lisboa/Sao Tomé / Príncipe Discos) Adjalme Noronha aka Kolt is the founding member of the Blacksea Não Maya crew from Lisboa on the other side of the Tejo river, known as Margem Sul. Together with Dj Perigoso, Dj Joker and his younger brother Noronha they have released 2 LP’s on the crunching Principe Discos label from Lisboa. The Blacksea Não Maya sound is an urban blend of Afro Portuguese ghetto beats, spanking percussion and electronic tones, like slower funaná crossed with the rudiments of kuduro, tarraxo and socopé rumba. His younger brother DJ Noronha played at our Festa Afro Tuga #2 night in 2017 and halfway his set the Brussels police stopped the party. that’s how wild it got. This time Kolt will take us till the end! https://soundcloud.com/black-ea-n-o-maya https://principediscos.bandcamp.com/album/calor-no-frioo-2
