Your Ticket to… Balkan Beats

Your Ticket to… Balkan Beats

We dedicated the first cover of our magazine to the fathers of Gypsy punk and one of the most influential bands of the Gypsy music scene. If you recently danced to some Gypsy sounds, Balkan Beats or Eastern European music, it is likely that behind the decks there was one...

Playlist: Nomade Orquestra

Playlist: Nomade Orquestra

We discovered them almost one year ago thanks to their debut album and it was love at first listen. That’s why, a few weeks after the release of their second work (Entremundos) and a few days before their second UK tour (with a stop-over at London’s Jazz Café on the...
Review: Love Supreme Festival (Glynde Place, 30th June to 2nd July 2017)

Review: Love Supreme Festival (Glynde Place, 30th June to 2nd July 2017)

The concept of an outdoor jazz festival hardly conjures images of glitter-filled Glastonbury excitement, a young hip crowd and dance-fuelled elation. However, previously exclusive jazz appears to be undergoing a fashion revolution and the grounds of Glynde Place hinted at this. Love Supreme, the UK’s only three-day greenfield jazz festival...
Review: Womad 2017 (Malmesbury, 30th July 2017)

Review: Womad 2017 (Malmesbury, 30th July 2017)

This year, we only got a glimpse of the music bonanza offered by the Womad UK weekend. Our stay in Malmesbury consisted of a hit-and-run or a ‘toccata-and-fugue’, in-keeping with the musical topic, and saw us pay a visit to Charlton Park on the last day of the event. Still,...

Interview: Nina Miranda (July 2017)

She finally made the big step. After twenty years of a career successfully spent being the voice of this or that project, Nina Miranda has signed her name on a debut album. As we understood from an interesting chat that we recently had with her, Freedom of Movement is not...
Review: La Mambanegra @ Pavilion Terrace (Manchester, 14th July 2017)

Review: La Mambanegra @ Pavilion Terrace (Manchester, 14th July 2017)

A grey, dank Friday evening welcomed Colombia’s La Mambanegra as guests of the Biennial Manchester International Festival. The tent interior was wrapped in black and fans gathered, sitting cross-legged, waiting for the band. Hailing from Cali, the nine-piece La Mambanegra (The Black Mamba) take to the stage, safe in the...
Review: Cortex @ The Jazz Café (London, 15th June 2017)

Review: Cortex @ The Jazz Café (London, 15th June 2017)

It is not often that you can attend a live performance evoking a historical music phenomenon that no present music scene will ever bring back. It’s what music does, it transcends both space and time – we get to feel how innovative and unique that time was. And how relevant...
Review: Erykah Badu @ Eventim Apollo (London, 6th July 2017)

Review: Erykah Badu @ Eventim Apollo (London, 6th July 2017)

Erykah Badu is a force who subtly commands the stage with her jazzy voice, enlightened song-writing and empathetic connection. This was a much-anticipated return from the “Queen of Neo Soul” as she played her first London gig in five years (thanks to the work of Neo Luv). The venue was sold...
