Playlist: Africa Express – The Circus @ The Big Top (London; Friday 29th March 2019)

africaexpress the circus

Since its inception, Africa Express has proved to be a far-sighted project inspired by the will to unite and allow musicians from Africa and Europe to collaborate.

Their upcoming 5-hour festival, on stage at The Big Top in Leytonstone on Friday, will bring forward that mission thanks to an all-star and varied line-up, including rock, electro and pop stars (from Rokia Traoré to Damon Albarn), as well as more up-and-coming artists, like Moonchild Sanelly, Onipa and Muzi.

More than a dozen acts will come together to celebrate Walthamstow and pay their rhythmic tribute to the London Borough of Culture 2019, but they also come together to prove (if proof was needed) how many similarities, connections and overlapping qualities there are between the two continents.

To introduce you to and to warm you up for the Africa Express musical circus, we have put together a video playlist reflecting what you will enjoy on Friday afternoon under the Big Top tent.

Follow The Good, The Bad & The Queen: Gun To The Head Notice here by given That spring guns and mantraps To be placed on these premises So don’t trespass over the line on the map Commissioners for oaths In the borough of Banbury Require the owners of rowdy dogs To keep them on their leads We don’t care because we’re all animal lovers We like to share our lives with them Required of this song Is a case for love When everything else That keeps us together conspiring to tear us apart. At the point where the sky and the earth touch Is the head of the Unicorn Nailed to the wheel in the middle of the town Is the nightingale alone Singing ‘where have you put me I gave no signed consent I’d rather keep my place here And put up with your rents’ Because the sun is soft Like the narcotics sold in Boots We don’t care because we’re all animal lovers We like to share our lives with them Required of this song Is a case for love When everything else That keeps us together conspiring to tear us apart Sleeping safe in your bed A slow motion circular film Inward looking The realm of moles Pressure-cooking in the home No approvals in the out tray Not one today To the city no forever The Good, The Bad & The Queen are managed by Eleven Mgmt.

Batida - Pobre e Rico feat. Matadidi Mario

Batida - "Pobre e Rico" Soundway Records 2014 "The space where i make almost everything, one lamp, a video projection and dance routines prepared for live performances, two fantastic dancers, a pair of MPLA flip flops, my own and a dusty Canon camera just arrived from Sambizanga." Pedro Coquenão/Batida "Como fazer um video "Pobre e Rico? Assumir o espaço onde faço quase tudo, como cenário real e viável. Limpar o chão da rua. Esperar que a iluminação pública se apague. Iluminar com candeeiro próprio. Filmar com câmara acabada de chegar, cheia de pó do Sambizanga. Usar coreografia e vídeo criados para a performance ao vivo. Juntar adereços sem custo: 2 chinelas do MPLA." Pedro Coquenão/Batida (Extraordinária) Dança André Cabral / Gonçalo Cabral (Preciosa) Câmara Vasco Cruz (Paciente) Montagem Catarina Limão (Vassourada) Realização Pedro Coquenão / Batida
