ON THE STAGE LIVE
La Dame Blanche (Cuba)
★Urban music! Rap, Reggae, Nu Cumbia★
Yaite Ramos, a Cuban musician living in Paris, is the daughter of Jesus “Aguaje” Ramos (Musical Director of the Buena Vista Social Club Orchestra). Previously a flutist and part of the chorus with Sargento Garcia, she’s also the lead singer of El Hijo de la Cumbia. Today, she presents the debut album of La Dame Blanche– directed by Marc Babylotion Damblé (Sargento Garcia, Amadou & Mariam, Orishas), French Sound Engineer/Beat Maker – and composed under the artistic direction of Emiliano Gomez, a.k.a El Hijo de la Cumbia, an Argentinian producer renowned for his fusion of Cumbia and urban sounds. The tracks of Piratas (2014), his last release, are rich in social meaning and claim their roots in the traditions of urban music. Rap, Reggae, and certainly Nu Cumbia are all fertile playgrounds for La Dame Blanche.
LA MULA SANTA (Berlin)
★Cumbia from Berlin★
From Tierra del Fuego at the extreme southern of South America until the United States, from the Andes to the Atlantic coast, the Colombian Cumbia is popular, while in Europe it is still an amazingly well kept secret. Located on the Caribbean coast of Colombia, this music has been not only in Latin America but also international success. The Band identity comes not only from the infectious beat of the Cumbia, but also of different Latin-American rhythms like Merengue, Salsa, Bomba, Guajira, Reggaeton and Latin Rock.
Featuring short live act with Falakumbe (Stockholm)
Falakumbe is a Stockholm based band that combines cumbia, reggae, ska, chicha, psychedelic, rock, punk, Latin rhythms and sounds with antiracist, political lyrics, that tries to find alternative spaces for cultural expression.
Here we have the waste from the music scene that never really wanted to have them. It is here, in a jungle of distorted guitars, tasty tumbao and rhythms where our characters encounter. A bunch of anacorhythmc latino-punkers, pseudo-intellectual folks from Chile and Peru.
