  • Batida

    Batida

    Dance

    It all may have started when Pedro was only 8 and did his first song along with his cousins called “Surukundina”, that was presented in a small show to their family. In 2007, he started to develop Batida. After a successful local release in 2009 that was pointed as “one of the most relevant records done in Angola and Portugal” by António Pires, a referential portuguese music journalist, in 2012, he was picked by Soundway Records for an international release as the first new artist to be signed. Mixing electronic with samples from the 60´s and 70´s Angolan music, his first and self titled record was released with many praises from international media. 

    “This could be the record that changes the African ElectronicMusic on XXI century” - Songlines 

    “His work can be held up to the light of many angles” - The Wire

    Pedro Coquenão likes music production as much as radio, video and documentary making, dance or creating his own masks. On his garage he is mostly alone creating but many of the tracks are made out of dialogues with other artists he loves. On stage he likes to be surrounded by other musicians, mc’s, dancers and video projections to help him represent each story. He works each individually, rehearsing drums on a special drum kit assembled by himself, developing choreography's with the dancers and creating moments for the MC’s. There’s also own made artefacts and props on the show, and the songs are contextualized by hand picked archive or own filmed images for each song.

    The show was already presented on Glastonbury, Roskilde, Pitch, Lowlands, Eurokéennes, Les Nuits Sonores, Les Suds à Arles, Transmusicalles, Eurosonic, Babel and twice at Womad Festival (UK and Cáceres) and Eurosonic. Over the web Batida was the first Luso-Angolan artist to feature on Boileroom, where he was already 4 times, the last one on late January 2015, a memorable performance on Red Bull Music Academy Takeover Boileroom Lisboa. He was also invited twice for the Africa Express show, a Damon Albarn project. First at Fiesta des Suds in 2013 and last year closing Roskilde also, presenting songs that featured musicians from Gorillaz, Maximo Park, Magic Numbers, Bombay Bicycle Club and Damon Albarn himself. In 2014, Batida remixed “Heavy Seas Of Love“, one of the songs from Damon´s first solo album. 

    The same year he ended up doing the support act on 4 Stromae big arena shows.

    Last year he was listed for Best Artist, in the Songlines Music Awards, as well as for Best European Indie Album in the Impala Awards, and the show was considered one of the best shows from this year festivals by the referential music Magazine Les InRockuptibles: read article.

    Pedro recently finished the Co Production of Konono Nº1 new album, with the band original producer Vincent Kenys, that will be released in April 2016. The band have been in Portugal to record new songs in his garage and together they played 2 shows where some roughs of the recording sessions were presented along two exclusive versions of "Bazuka” and "Cuka".

     

  • Betsayda Machado y La Parranda El Clavo

    Betsayda Machado y La Parranda El Clavo

    Latin America

    Betsayda Machado is a Venezuelan singer born in El Clavo, Barlovento, a community of rich Afro-Venezuelan traditions. Barlovento’s inhabitants are descendants of African workers who once tilled the cocoa fields, exploited by local land owners. Nicknamed ‘The Black Voice of Barlovento’, Betsayda has become the carrier of a long tradition of nearly extinguished genres of black music in Venezuela, and is now seen as an icon of Afro-Venezuelan music.

    La Parranda El Clavo is the local percussion and voice ensemble in El Clavo, population: 1500. For nearly 30 years they have been playing together at local festivities, funerals, new year celebrations and get-togethers. La Parranda El Clavo got the attention of director and producer Juan Souki during a trip to El Clavo with Betsayda. Together, they recorded a series of albums and organized the first parranda tour that showcases Barlovento’s vibrant musical traditions.

     

  • Jojo Abot

    Jojo Abot

    Singer-Songwriter

    Jojo Abot is a Ghanaian singer-songwriter that blends electronica, afrobeat, jazz, neo-soul, house and reggae into her music. For her first and forthcoming EP Fyfya Woto, Jojo found sonic inspiration in the music of Thandiswa Mazwai, Savage Rose, Seeed, Lucky Dube, and Simphiwe Dana. However, the raw emotion at the heart of the four-track project which centers around a woman’s right to choose comes from the generational ties that bind the women in her family together. With songs based around a woman’s right to choose, the conceptual project marks Abot first body of work as a musical artist.

  • Maarja Nuut

    Maarja Nuut

    Folk

  • Ranky Tanky

    Ranky Tanky

    Music

    South Carolina natives, “Ranky Tanky,” first came together in 1998, fresh out of university, to form a seminal Charleston quartet called, “The Gradual Lean.” Clay Ross, Quentin Baxter, Kevin Hamilton, and Charlton Singleton, who shared prodigious musical talent and a playful sense of humor, would frequently crash an event, play a song for the lover of a friend, and just as quickly move on.

    For a few beautiful years, impromptu “leans” were happening all across the Charleston Peninsula, and while this band remained local, its members went on to international acclaim, a grammy nomination, international tours, thousands of performances, and millions of notes played around the world with various other projects. Through it all, the four remained friends and occasional collaborators, always open to the possibilities of performing together again.

    Now, united by years apart and a deeper understanding of home, these accomplished artists have come together again, joined by vocalist Quiana Parler, to celebrate a “Heartland of American Music” born in their own backyards.

  • Rare Essence

    Rare Essence

    Dance

    Rare Essence, Washington’s premier Go‑ Go band for more than three decades has built a devoted fan base that spans multiple generations, drawn to the indigenous funk sired in the mid ‘70s by the late Godfather of Go-Go, Chuck Brown. Using a beat adapted from Grover Washington Jr.'s 1974 hit,"Mr. Magic", Brown and his band the Soul Searchers played continuously, linking songs together over percussion breakdowns—a raw, non-stop party groove fueled by congas, cowbells and timbales, with call and response interactions that obliterated divisions between a band that wouldn’t stop playing and audience that couldn’t stop dancing. 

  • Rudresh Mahanthappa’s Indo-Pak Coalition

    Rudresh Mahanthappa’s Indo-Pak Coalition

    Jazz

    Synthesizing jazz with the improvised musical forms of South Asia, the Indo-Pak Coalition transcends any preconception of Indo-jazz fusion. Led alto-saxophonist Mahanthappa, this trio with Pakistani-American guitarist Rez Abbasi and first-call percussionist Dan Weiss has turned heads internationally in both the jazz and world music scenes. Their debut album Apti (Innova, 2008) received excellent reviews from a variety of publications including the New York Times and Rolling Stone, and the group has played concerts and festivals around the world, most recently at the 2010 Monterey Jazz Festival.

  • Septeto Santiaguero

    Septeto Santiaguero

    Music

    Septeto Santiaguero honed its sound at Santiago de Cuba’s famous nightclub Casa de la Trova. Balancing reverence for tradition with an adventurous streak that has sparked collaborations with salsa stars like José Alberto “El Canario” and Rubén Blade.

  • Ssing Ssing

    Ssing Ssing

    Music

    Six musicians from diverse genres join creative forces in the eccentric band SsingSsing.  The group welds two totally disparate elements: rock band music and the typical authentic, somewhat oscillating vocals from Korean folk songs, while also including elements from ballads, pop music and shamanist rituals.  Featuring Hee-moon Lee (lead vocal), Young-gyu Jang (Music Director/bass guitar), Da-hye Choo (vocal), Seung-tae Shin (vocal), Chul-hee Lee (drum), Tae-won Lee (electric guitar/keyboard), Ssing Ssing creates a unique vibe while introducing elements of Korean traditional music, such as Gyeonggi Minyo (folk song of Gyeonggi area), Seodo Minyo (folk song of Hwanghae/Pyeongan area) and Seoul Gut (shamanistic ritual) in their works.
