Vintage Voudou Dance Night at Mezrab – LP release AFRO7
Date: Sat 23.11 - Sun 24.11 Time: 21:30 - 03:00
The Finland-based label AFRO7 presents its latest vinyl releases of East African bands from the ’60s through ’80s. Joining us on the decks is arguably the world’s biggest collector and connaisseur of Kenyan music on 45 RPM, Afro7 label boss Fredrik Lavik. Together with Jumanne he will play a hand picked set to light up the dance floor with grooves from Kenya, Tanzania and neighbouring countries. From benga to taarab, rumba to funk and a bit of coastal disco chakacha.
The evening kicks off at 22u with a Q&A with Fredrik & Jumanne about digging in Kenya. After 22:30 Fredrik, Jumanne & the Vintage Voudou team are spinning killer vintage tropical tunes from vinyl.
Discount copies of Yaseen & Party (taarab from Kenya), Abamano – Amsterdam Ticket (psych funk from Burundi) and other Afro7 releases will be available at the venue.
