Ever wondered where the intoxicating sound of Family Atlantica comes from?

We asked Luzmira Zerpa and Jack Yglesias (founder members of the band) to share with us some of their music influences and inspirations and the following video playlist is a journey to discover el ritmo de la Familia!

Don’t miss the opportunity to see them in action on Saturday at The Jazz Café with Vula Viel and Sean OD (buy your tickets HERE)

 

Family Atlantica - Cacao (Official Video)

Cacao is taken from the new Family Atlantica album Cosmic Unity. Available now on Soundway Records. Available to buy here: http://smarturl.it/CosmicUnityDirec... This video was filmed in Salt Pond, Ghana in between hanging with Ebo Taylor for his 80th birthday. Lyrics are our version of a traditional Afro-Venezuelan song from the Cacao plantations of the Caribbean coast, mixed with psychedelic highlife dance rhythms and a touch of blues. Pure Family Atlantica.

Planned on a whim the trip was not one of the carefully planned research expeditions that Miles would later embark on to any number of far-flung tropical destinations. On the contrary he left England with no idea of what he might find or that it might be the start of a career in the record business. Although the label has it's roots in West Africa the scope has grown to include many other parts of the tropical belt with the aim of making available recordings that have in most cases never been available outside of their original countries and often not even there for over 30 years. Over the years Soundway's modus operandi has been to approach the music from a different angle from many of the more established "World Music" labels. By focusing on more obscure artists as well as big names and often concentrating on progressive recordings more in sync with Cleret's generation and background in DJ culture and dance-music. Styles have included afro-beat, funk, highlife, ethio-jazz, molam, calypso, cumbia, champeta, biguine, latin-jazz and disco as well as many unclassifiable recordings. Since 2012 Soundway has begun releasing new material from a carefully selected handful of contemporary recording artists including acclaimed acts Ondatropica, Bomba Estereo and Ibibio Sound Machine http://www.soundwayrecords.com/ https://www.facebook.com/SoundwayRe... https://twitter.com/soundway

Tonada del Cabrestero - Simón Díaz

Música de Venezuela Letra: Camino del llano viene Puntero en la soledad El cabestrero cantando, ay Su copla en la madrugá Ahó... a... a... El toro pita la vaca Y el novillo se retira Como el novillo era toro La vaca siempre lo mira Mariposa, nube de agua La luna busca la sombra Y no la puede encontrar Porque la sombra se esconde Aaaa Detrás de la madrugá Ahó... a... a... No llores más nube de agua Silencia tanta amargura Que toda leche da queso Y toda pena se cura Lucerito nube de agua Ya viene la mañanita Cayendo sobre el palmar Y el cabestrero prosigue Con su doliente cantar Ahó... a... a... Mañana cuando me vaya Quien se acordará de mi Solamente la tinaja Por el agua que bebí Lucerito nube de agua
