Interview: Totó La Momposina (April 2017)

She rarely visits and performs in London, but when she does, she’s always keen to bring the Caribbean sun and enthusiasm with her. A few days ago, on the eve of her gig as part of La Linea festival, we had the honour to meet and have a chat with...

Interview: Luzmira Zerpa – Family Atlantica (March 2017)

Before learning to walk and talk, Luzmira Zerpa was already singing… well, maybe that’s not literally what happened, but since an early age, the woman who would become the voice, cuatro player and relentless energetic drive of Family Atlantica grew up in an environment where listening to, singing and playing...

Interview: Pete Wareham – Melt Yourself Down (May 2017)

Among the dozens of bands that claim to play some unclassifiable music, Melt Yourself Down are probably one of the most convincing, because with very good reason they can attest to being whimsical, original and unpredictable. Since you need to display plenty of inventiveness and artistry to deserve those qualities,...

With jarana, requinto jarocho, zapateado, tarima, quijada, and several other instruments, Las Cafeteras, a band of six,...
Interview: Clinton Fearon (March 2017)

Interview: Clinton Fearon (March 2017)

In a world of “acceptable musical nihilism”, Clinton Fearon is a citizen-musician, in the ideal sense of the word.

Interview: Nicola Cruz (March 2017)

Interview: Nicola Cruz (March 2017)

Nicola Cruz is to put it simply, a fantastic musician. In my humble opinion, his music speaks of more than just the seeking of pleasure, but to the pursuit of life. His tracks offer themselves to the human condition, that we are born and die alone, and in between, we’re...
