Primeiramente' é fruto do crescente sentimento de insatisfação com a atual situação política e social no Brasil e no mundo. Foi inspirada e é dedicada à luta histórica pela garantia de direitos - independente de classe, cor, gênero, religião, etnia ou partido. Essa é nossa pequena contribuição ao processo de reflexão sobre o momento que vivemos. "Primeiramente is the result of a growing sense of dissatisfaction with the current political and social situation in Brazil and all over the world. It was inspired and it's dedicated to the historical struggle to guarantee rights - regardless of class, color, gender, religion, ethnicity or party.

Sergio Mendoza Y La Orkesta: NPR Music Field Recordings

Many of us at NPR Music fell hard for Arizona's Sergio Mendoza and his band La Orkesta this year. Together, they mix myriad Latin styles — what Mendoza calls "indie mambo," salted with generous handfuls of cumbia, merengue and ranchera — and then feed all that through a psychedelic prism. They perform their songs with charm and panache, set off by the fireworks of the group's resident showman, the multi-talented Salvador Duran. While NPR Music was in Austin for SXSW this year, we coaxed Mendoza and his crew into a three-song backyard party after a little local coffee. But they didn't really need the caffeine to get everyone's blood pumping.-- ANASTASIA TSIOULCAS Set List "Traicionera" (Treasons) "La Cucharita" (Little Spoon) "La Rienda" (The Reins) Credits Producers: Mito Habe-Evans, Saidah Blount, Anastasia Tsioulcas; Audio Engineer: Kevin Wait; Director: AJ Wilhelm; Videographers: Mito Habe-Evans, Becky Harlan, Olivia Merrion, AJ Wilhelm; Editor: Olivia Merrion; Production Coordinator: Kate Kittredge; Special Thanks: Friends & Neighbors; Executive Producer: Anya Grundmann

Il prouve l'appartenance d'un individu à un groupe ethnique et détermine son rang dans la société traditionnelle. Le patronyme est également à la base du "Sanankounya" ou cousinage à plaisanterie, qui constitue un vrai facteur de cohésion sociale. C'est pourquoi un Peulh ne déshonorera pas le Forgeron et vice versa. Les gens de caste ne feront pas honte au noble; et le noble ne sera pas désobligeant envers les gens de caste. Le Bozo ne déshonorera pas le Dogon; et le Dogon ne fera pas honte au Bozo. Le Soninké ne sera pas désobligeant vis à vis du Malinké; et le Malinké ne déshonorera pas le Soninké. Oumou chante aussi sa joie d'avoir des amis dans toute l'Afrique et au-delà. Fadjamou (Family name) Oumou sings here about the family name, which is a very important aspect of Malian culture. It proves a person's bond with an ethnic group and determines their standing in the traditional society. The surname is also the basis of the "Sanankounya", a custom of insulting or teasing someone of another ethnic group (or someone within yours), which is a real factor of social cohesion in the Mande area. That is why, a Peulh will not dishonour a Blacksmith and vice versa. People of caste will not shame the noble; and the noble will not insult people of caste. The Bozo will not dishonour the Dogon; and the Dogon will not bring shame on a Bozo. The Soninké will not be disparaging to a Malinké; and the Malinké will not dishonour the Soninké. Oumou also sings about her joy of having friends all over Africa and beyond. ______ Follow Oumou Sangare on : Facebook Deezer Spotify Instagram

La Rumba Me Llamo Yo - Daymé Arocena - Cubafonía (Official video)

La Rumba Me Llamo Yo - Daymé Arocena - Cubafonía (2017). Link to music: Created in collaboration with Havana Cultura, a platform for contemporary Cuban creativity driven by Havana Club rum. More info 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.

Ifriqiyya Electrique - Arrah arrah abbaina - Bahari - Tenouiba

Ifriqiyya Electrique: Rûwâhîne Release date: May 26th, 2017 Order: Sufi trance musicians and rituals – from the depths of the Tunisian desert – in conversation with post-industrial sonics. ‘No theatre or stage or audience. The rûwâhîne have possessed and contorted the bodies of the Banga. Teenagers leap to the floor, their legs arched and tense, glaring transfixed [while] girls dance wildly, … accelerating the rhythm of the hand percussion’ The film opens on a cloud-pressed, bleached-out desert highway and an ominous electronic pulse, a devil of a wind, that you don’t want to shake off. Where are you? The truck in front carries human freight, half-glimpsed, anxious and thoughtful. You’re soon joined by the kind of dark lunar soundscapes familiar from Can, by polyrhythms at once deft and relentless, and then, as the truck reaches the outskirts of the town, by chants that seem to issue from the empty streets themselves. Ifriqiyah was the medieval entity that contained present-day Tunisia, as well as parts of Algeria and Libya: the boundaries, more or less, of the Roman province of Africa. Is this where you are? To get your bearings, you might first have to dive into a basement club somewhere in Southern Europe: Barcelona, perhaps, or Taranto or Palermo. For Ifriqiyya Electrique’s François Cambuzat - a guitarist and field recordist (Turkey, China, Central Asia) - is a veteran of the Mediterranean punk and avant-rock scene, which has always been more politically charged than its counterparts to the north and (far) west. With bassist Gianna Greco, he is one half of Putan Club – or one third when these two fierce and uncompromising players are joined by legend of the NY underground, Lydia Lunch. These are not spaces of comfort but of challenge and confrontation. But let us pull focus again – and this is crucial, bass and guitar and electronics notwithstanding. Ifriqiyya Electrique was formed in the Djerid Desert in southern Tunisia, home to the Banga ritual of Sidi Marzûq. The Banga is a key annual event in the lives of the black communities of the oasis towns of southern Tunisia, descendants of the Hausa slaves transported from sub-Saharan Africa. It is a ritual of adorcism not of exorcism: of accommodating the possessing spirit rather than expelling it. The invitation has been issued by the rûwâhîne themselves, the spirits from whom the record borrows its title, and is taken up primarily in the streets and in private houses. The Banga is a musical tradition for sure, with stark, metallic, cavernous percussion and voices of cool urgency, but should not be felt as such, for it is most defiantly a ritual and remains so on this record. Cambuzat and Greco are joined in live performance by the voices, krakebs and Tunisian tablas of three members of the Banga community, Tarek Sultan, Yahia Chouchen and Youssef Ghazala, with a fourth, Ali Chouchen, providing vocals and nagharat on the record itself. The voices and rhythms are unaltered, of course. What is new here is the conversation the group initiates between guitar, bass and electronics and the rhythms and chants of the Banga – what Cambuzat refers to a post-industrial ceremony. It won’t be an easy listen for purists and propagandists; but if post-industrial ceremony doesn’t describe a large portion of the most challenging music of the last 40 years, what does? In short, the music can only be fully understood in the context of the events that gave rise to it. Happily, Ifriqiyya Electrique is a film and documentary project as much as a band. The footage is astonishing: of wild, ecstatic gatherings that seem, to us, the un-initiates, by turns other-worldly and utterly familiar. It is familiar because we all recognise the need for “new ways of forgetting”, in Cambuzat’s words. But we surely need to remember too. For here is another deep tradition, another precarious music, on the brink: a vital part of a Sufi culture being pressed on all sides by the forces of reaction. Ifriqiyya Electrique will not be lamenting its passing – because they will refuse to let it pass. ‘This is, then, most certainly not a “world music” project (still less an ethnomusicological one), but a wild process of improvisation and re-composition that brings traditional instruments face to face with computers and electric guitars… [My work] is driven towards elevation, sweat, blood, poetry and tears – not to some pretty colour postcard’ -- François R. Cambuzat / Ifriqiyya Electrique
