African Beats & Pieces | Island Fever

Freitag // 28. Juni 2019 // 23:00h

African Beats & Pieces ★ is an event series dedicated to the music of Africa and its diaspora.

With a special focus on contemporary and lesser-known artists, we strive to showcase the diversity of sounds and songs the continent has to offer, doing so through theme-specific parties involving passionate diggers & DJs.

From Madagascar to Martinique, from the Indian Ocean to the Caribbean, from Cabo Verde to Haïti, there are just millions of songs, sounds and styles to be explored on the many magical islands & archipelagos around Africa and in the West Indies. 

Many popular musical genres in the Caribbean were indeed largely created by African slaves and their descendants, offering fascinating syntheses of West/Central African, European and Indigenous influences.

We’re glad to invite Amiral Disko (Bab' International Sound System / Worldwide Grooves Station) for this joyful occasion! He will bring over his precious musical selection from Geneva to share the fantastic grooves all these islands have to offer: Zouk, Tsapiky, Biguine, Sega, Funànà, Rara, Kompa, Gwo Ka, Maloya & much more of course! 

You know our motto: "We strive to bring you here what the locals dance(d) to there!" Oh and that one too: ♬ "Come with an open mind & leave with sore feet"♬

8€ at the door | 11pm-open end
