Director's Statement: "We shot it on the Red Dragon, around places of personal significance to Amir and Toine, in the areas where they grew up in Prince George’s county. The main goal of the video was not an aesthetic one, but to simply have fun, enjoy the journey, and reminisce at the old haunts. Every location we pulled up to, Amir and Toine would get really excited because they hadn’t been there in such a long time, so I didn’t want to kill the enthusiasm by taking any time to set anything up. So for this video we decided to try and capture the entire thing with a single lens, the 18mm Zeiss Superspeed, allowing them to do whatever they wanted and move wherever they wanted to go. We ended up using a 10mm and an 18mm to get all the surroundings and the two of them playing off of each other in performance. With this method we were able to get everything in single takes at each location and nothing got stale before it was time to move on." - Zak

Gatupreto release their sophomore Distino Di Nos Vida on TINK! Music! The duo from Lisbon's hinterland return with a second round of their impeccable, futuristic theory on modern club music after the acclaimed Modo Di Trabadja EP, released in 2015. The tropical taste of Cabo Verde, the cool of that Lisbon dance floor fusionism, the appeal of classic vibes. Tracks too dark and twisted to be called "Afro", too sexy and melodic to be called "Techno", too smart and freaky to be called "House" and too cool and mature to be called "Kuduro", it is simply Gatupreto.
On the A side I Became Me, deep afro dub with a killer sub bass and endless echoes, starring Portuguese soul and hip hop legend NBC as guest vocalist and a remix by afro Dutch master and fellow TINK! artist Philou Louzolo - who turns I Became Me into an irresistible deep house with african undertones.
On the flip side, the dark dramatic stomping tracks Afrowerk and Gatu Di Noti, the first an eerie, irresistible peak time banger, and the later a stormer with sounds from natural Africa, harpy acid lines and an off kilter beat.

La Rumba Me Llamo Yo - Daymé Arocena - Cubafonía (Official video)
La Rumba Me Llamo Yo - Daymé Arocena - Cubafonía (2017). Link to music: https://lnk.to/cubafoniaFV
Created in collaboration with Havana Cultura, a platform for contemporary Cuban creativity driven by Havana Club rum. More info http://havana-cultura.com/
Built on a steady-moving rumba rhythm, ‘La Rumba me llamo yo’ is the latest track to be taken from Daymé Arocena’s second album Cubafonía. A bright, infectious composition in a guaganco-styled mode of rumba, the song revealed itself to Daymé in a dream. A reflection of her Santería religion, the song traces her Ita — the reading of your destiny that comes with initiation.
With Cuba poised to become more connected to the rest of the world, the Cuban people’s pride in a unique musical heritage has never felt more vital. Arising from that lineage, Daymé Arocena has returned to deliver an ambitious second long player; rooting her compositions in Cuba’s classic rhythms, Daymé encompasses the rich, diverse musical make-up of her home whilst looking outward too – to the world she has spent the last two years traveling.
It’s her most polished, fully realised project since meeting her mentor (and record label head), Gilles Peterson, in 2012. Benefiting from Gilles’ expansive vision as a DJ, broadcaster and promoter, Daymé has been nurtured to this point by the Havana Cultura project – a platform for contemporary Cuban creativity driven by Havana Club rum.
Interviewing Daymé at the Sound of Cuba showcase at SXSW last year, NPR wrote, “It is hard to imagine a better voice to open her country’s gates” – and it feels like this statement holds true. Ambitious, hardworking, and hungry for cultural exchange that doesn’t compromise the unique flavour of her home country of which she is so proud, it feels like 2017 could be a monumental year for Daymé. She possesses a clear sense of her music’s intermingling influences: “We don't have this native culture,” she explains. “We don't have indigenous people, like Maya or Quechua. They made a country with people from everywhere – that’s what makes Cuban culture so different.

http://thevolunteeredslaves.com -- Nouvel album "RIPCORD' le 14 avril 2017 & Concert au Café de la Danse le 11 mai 2017.
On a tous en mémoire une femme qui a marqué notre vie. Celle qui nous mis au monde, celle qui a mis au monde celle qui nous a mis au monde et toutes celles avant elles sont des recueils de la mémoire terrestre. Elles sont tout à la fois : mère, soeur, fille, confidente, amie, nourrice... Kahina est toutes ces femmes à la fois. Elle est forte et fragile. Soutien infaillible ou ennemie combative. Douce amante ou mère à l'amour inconditionnel. Les femmes ont toujours été dans nos sociétés à la source de changements significatifs. Kahina célèbre la femme dans son essence. Source de tout elle règne dans le coeur de l'âme du monde.
-- Indy Eka
"Somewhere there was a little girl
Who didn't have to fight to be
So she decided to be a fighter to be
She wore the armor for the sake of others
For the sake of those who won’t remember
Those who won’t notice
But it's alright mother
No dont cry mother
She is the one with a sword made of faith
Heart of light you are
Heart of conqueror you rise
Heart of fire so bright (rock the casbah)
You will fly not too far away (rock the casbah)
Woman, woman of power soldier of love
She saw it once
She saw the salvation long before Cause she carried it
A true soldier using what nature gave her to succeed
Heart of light you are
Heart of conqueror you rise
Heart of fire so bright (rock the casbah)
You will fly not too far away(rock the casbah)
Many many man tend to think they Know who she is who she was who she's meant to be
But the truth is at the end of the day there is no word there is a million
She is strong fearless wild and Cold
She is a mother wife lady a Sister a friend
She is combative conquerant
A symbol for others
A flower in the desert
A colour in the dark
She was free to fight
She was free to live
She was from the beginning and always be til the end
Mother earth gave her the choice between be and do
But instead she chose not to choose but to do
She is bold sincere one of a kind
Never neglect her feminity for any divine
She defies and and denies the right for some to be in
Body and soul kahina is never defeated
She will turn to ashes every city every town
Never back down never slow down never fret
She is a desert storm blowing out injustice
Beware Beware here comes the Shero
Beware Beware here comes the Shero"
Totó la Momposina - Julio Moreno (live at Real World Studios)
Julio Moreno is a previously unreleased track recorded live at Real World Studios in 1991 as part of the sessions for the 'La Candela Viva' album, produced by the legendary Phil Ramone.
Download / stream Julio Moreno here: http://smarturl.it/Toto-JulioMoreno
La Candela Viva was the album that finally brought Totó international recognition and sealed her reputation in her native Colombia. The track wasn't included in the final version of that album and the recording was only rediscovered as part of the work that became the Tambolero album, released in 2015. Finally getting a proper release Julio Moreno is already a live favourite and is a must have for all Totó fans.

Singer, dancer and teacher, Totó La Momposina's entire life has been dedicated to representing the music of Colombia’s Caribbean coastline, where African, Indigenous Indian and Spanish cultures mingle to create a unique musical tradition. Tambolero, originally released in 1993 as La Candela Viva, has been re-created and re-imagined for 2015 as part of Real World Records’ Gold series.
