SAMBADA DE COCO ★Brazilian percussion★
Samba de Coco is a typical rhythm and dance of the coastal regions in the north-east of Brazil, with its roots and origins in the federal states of Pernambuco, Paraíba and Alagoas and has been further developed by Brazilian fishermen and field workers. The Sambada de Coco is worn by Brazilian percussionists who play many different types of coco. This is a collaborative activity for which Coco is sung and danced.
Coco is an African-influenced musical rhythm that originated in Northern Brazil. “Coco” may also refer to the style of dance performed to the music, a kind of stomping. The name “Coco” (Portuguese for “coconut”) is a common Northeastern Brazilian slang for head, referring to the fact that song lyrics are often improvised. Coco is often performed with a repetitive musical beat and call and response singing reminiscent of Capoeira music. The music is commonly performed at traditional parties in the Northeast, such as weekend street parties and Carnival. Coco is also alternatively known as “embolada” (another slang word, meaning “entangling”, referring to the fast, slurred, machine-gun style of singing).
The characteristic sound of coco arises from four instruments commonly used in its performance: the ganzá, surdo, pandeiro, and triangle. Performers also often wear wooden clogs, the stomping of which adds a fifth percussive element.
LA MULA SANTA ★ cumbia salsa chicha pachanga and latin rhythms★
The Chilean band La Mula Santa mix cumbia, rock, and different Latin-American rhythms in a spicy trunk. The Band lead Mauro Valenzuela, born in Chile and based in Berlin since many years meet the other musicians in a Chilean Bar in a colorful mixture of nationalities i.e. Chile, Armenia, Germany, Malta, Australia, Peru, Mexico. The Bar in F´hain district in Berlin called “El Caiman” was the place where they meed each other and since many years they are together doing concerts in Germany and Europe. Freedom in all aspects and for sure in the music is the registered character of La Mula Santa the sound and the rhythm and the incredible power to the stage, let no man without dancing. If you like passionate and Latin American music, you will love La Mula Santa.
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.

★ Don Rispetto (Napoli) ★
As a Radiomoderator he started 1993 with Kiss FM. In the middle of 90ties, he switched to radiomultikulti, where he moderated a special Saturday radio show “Radio Kanaka International”. This show was primarily intended as a forum for new talents, but also for established artists, to give them the opportunity to present themselves in their own way (“Radio for da people”). The whole spectrum of multicultural off-in culture gathered at his studio. The news from the international music and art scene were then brought with the “Berlingo” among the people. And as a Master of Ceremony it was and still is my job to design programs, organize events and jams of course, to bring it all over with a relaxed flavor.
