IRRESISTIBLE AFRICAN RUMBA FROM THE GULF OF GUINEA
For decades the musicians of Africa Negra have been seen as the most important ambassadors of the music of São Tomé and Principe,two small islands off the west coast of Central Africa. The band reunites after a 30 year hiatus. Band members from the original line-up, together with new talent, take us back to the early days of the band with vintage electric guitars and effects, bass, drums and percussion. Mild, typical São Tomé rumba, soukous and highlife are mixed with humorous and socially critical texts.
DJ: Alex Figueira (Vintage Voudou)
