  • Punta de Perlas Mixtape

    The Garifuna people is a black ethnic group that has a quite turbulent history. They are a mix of shipwrecked slaves, Arawak and Carib Indians from Saint Vincent, but have never been enslaved. After the British definitely took control over the island, they where deported to Roatán Island/Honduras from where they spread over the Caribbean coast of Central America, mainly Belize, Honduras and Nicaragua. Their rich cultural heritage has been recognized by UNESCO in 2001. Their traditional music styles are Punta and Paranda. From the 80ies on Punta developed into what nowadays is called Punta Rock. This style incorporates elements from other Caribbean genres such as Soca and Salsa.
    The tracks of this Mix of Punta Rock have been gathered mostly with a local DJ from Laguna de Perlas/Nicarágua where the cover foto has been shot too.

  • Tsonga Dance Mixtape

    The high speed lo-fi music from South Africa called Shangaan Electro came to the ears of a wider global public with the release of a compilation in 2010 and due to its insane dance style. Created by Nozinja (watch him in the video below) this music style combines uptempo midi beats with marimbas, African chants and traditional influences from the Shangaan/Tsonga people of Eastern South Africa. The mixtape presents a selection of this pure craziness I grabbed when visiting Soweto some years ago.

  • Afrobeat BR Mixtape

    Brazilian music is known for its vast influences from Africa, but how about Afrobeat? Well, the slaves that brought African music to Brazil were deported from their homeland until one century before Fela Kuti and Tony Allen invented the explosive mixture of Jazz, Funk, Soul and African rhythms. In the late 60ies Brazilian musicians were looking much more to the US and Europe and there was not much more than Gilberto Gil in the 70ies and then Nação Zumbi in the 90ies that got inspired by West-African Afrobeat. But there is a very interesting recording before that time: The song “Liberdade” from Orquestra Afro-Brasileiro (1957) has amazing similarities with “Shenshema” by Fela Kuti. Their whole album “Obaluaye!” is a surprising mixture of jazzy arrangements and African rhythms that by that time was very innovative as African percussion was regarded to be “barbaric” whereas piano and saxophone were “civilized” instruments.
    Since a few years the Afrobeat revival reached Brazil too and well known artists like MPB singer Vanessa da Mata, rapper Criolo or Céu use elements from Afrobeat in their music and there is a bunch of other artists doing so as well that are less known internationally. And with Bixiga 70 and the Abayomy Afrobeat Orchestra Brazil has at least two bands dedicated to play Afrobeat at full power.

  • Eletro Pankadão Mixtape

    While Funk Carioca is stagnating or even declining in Rio, it becomes treated in other parts of Brazil. Eletro Funk is made in Brazilian states such as Paraná, Rio Grande do Sul, Acre and Tocantins and is a mix of Funk Carioca and Electro/House Beats. Unfortunately the lyrics are as prejudiced macho and sexist style as its archetype…
