Fri 17 July > Puxa: Luso-African Dance Night @ Recyclart Bxl w/ Chalo Correia (AN/PT), Tabanka (CV), Celeste Mariposa dj’s (PT) & Rebel Up!

recyclart_17juli2015 Yo folks, PUXA!!!

On Friday 17th Rebel Up! helps organising a very special night at Recyclart during the always amazing Holidays festival.
as the title says > Puxa: Luso African Dance Night stands for a night filled with African dance music from the Lusophone countries such as Angola and Cabo Verde with styles like Semba, FunanĂĄ and more. Expect some serious tropical sounds impossible not to dance to.

‘Puxa’ means ‘pull’ in Portuguese (and not ‘push’ as would seem logical) and is used as a musical shout to pull your dance partner closer to you. Be ready to hear Puxa! night long!

Live concerts by Chalo Correia and Band from Angola via Lisboa, Tabanka from Cabo Verde via Rotterdam and the Celeste Mariposa dj’s from Lisboa.

Chalo Correia is Gonçalves António Correia, an Angolan musician and singer who grew up with Semba music in his blood. Chalo was born in Luanda, the capital of Angola, in 1968. During his boyhood he was fortunate to encounter musicians from revolutionary semba bands like Os Merengues, and Os Kiezos. He moved to Lisboa, Portugal in the beginning of the 90s and started to learn the classical guitar on autodidact and academic level with a strong will to make it by playing vintage Angolan music. His debut album ‘Kudihohola’ has just been released in June by Celeste/Mariposa Discos and is testimony to the development of his remarkable vision on Angolan music. Chalo Correia as a band retains the explosive, organic sounds of Semba and Rebita, but also remains in touch with the modern urban afro music scene in Lisbon. Semba is the swinging afro style from Angola, it comes from the word Masemba, which means ‘belly bumping’, a reference to some serious tight dancing. It’s the original base for styles like Brazilian Samba, Kizomba, Rebita, Kazukuta and it inspired the birth of urban Kuduro sound. Check his new video below for that sweet Semba sound.

Tabanka is a 7 piece Cabo Verdian band from Rotterdam, playing the fast swinging funanå music, thé dance sound of Cabo Verde. Their delirious funanå is ruled by the diatonic accordeon (gaita) and the ferrinho (metal stick) for some scraping rhythms and changing speeds. The group got its inspiration by generational musicians such as Bulimundo and Américo Brito but with their own modern interpretation and sound. Check it out! >

The Celeste / Mariposa dj duo run the famous Afro-Baile dance nights in Lisboa where they bring the Lusophone music culture together in sound. Their research is all about music from the former African Portuguese colonies; Angola, KaapverdiĂ«, Guinee Bissau, Mozambique and Sao TomĂ© & PrincipĂ©, digging up old vinyls on markets and visiting studio’s in Lisboa. They just started their own label Celeste Mariposa Disco’s on which they released Chalo Correia and for sure more Luso African releases will follow! Want to see how special they make it happen on their night? Check this video >
