/// TERRAKOTA /// Drinking from the juice of musical diversity, Terrakota's work unites people, languages and cultures. With this 9-headed (!) band, the world map is turned upside down, borders are swept by multilingual music, as if Portuguese, Creole, Wolof, Spanish, English, Arabic & French were a single language. Carrying a passport for a ride around the world, their dance steps journey across Mandinga and Afro-Cuban rhythms, soukouss, maracatu, gwana, rap, chimurenga and Indian music influences.
/// DANIEL DZIDZONU /// Daniel Dzidzonu was born into the sounds of West African percussions and gospel. His father gave him a bugle for his 5th birthday and that’s when he started blowing in the air. He recorded his first CD “Ewe Blue” in 2009. He played with various jazz ensembles and joined the World Squad European tour in 2011, playing alongside Fela Kuti’s legendary guitar player, Oghene Kologbo. Alongside the trumpet, his first love, Daniel also plays the bass, guitar and percussions.
/// MUKAMBO /// As a Brussels-based music journalist, global grooves activist, radiomaker and DJ, Mukambo has been specializing in music from around the globe since 2005 for several Belgian, Dutch & French newspapers and magazines. DJ Mukambo is africanizing and groovalizing nightlife with great Afro stuff that will make y'all dance the whole night round!
