We kick off a musically stunning night headlined by COLECTIVA with support from MUNTU VALDO
Show time 7.30pm! As always, Volta 45 and Poly-Ritmo will be DJing until the early hours, playing a selection of their finest cuts from around the globe.
COLECTIVA explore the spaces between Afro-Latin music and Jazz while reflecting on themes of sisterhood and female empowerment. Crafting thoughtful arrangements rooted in the sonorities of Africa, Latin America and the diaspora, they have birthed a sound affectionately dubbed jazz tropicaliente (hot-tropical-jazz), rich in bold horn lines, jazz harmony and Afro-Latin groove.
Anti-hierarchical in arrangement and structure, COLECTIVA exist as a vessel and a platform in which women instrumentalists come together through their love of and appreciation for Afro-Latin and Jazz genres, composing collaboratively, in the spirit of sisterhood.
Sawa blues is the term that Valdo himself has coined for his own music, and at the root of many songs is rhythmic and melodic sensibility that flows from the rich wellspring of timeless Cameroonian folk music, but this base is enriched by a wide range of idioms that are part of the African Diaspora, from Brazilian samba to American soul and jazz. If, on accasion, Muntu Valdo recalls the iconic Tres Pontas troubadour Milton Nascimento that may well be because he has found a way into his world through the motherland roots upon which it stands.
