RECORD RELEASE SHOW CASE

Dear Tropicalistas, today let´s do some exercises in the Latin American diaspora an idea coming from my friends of MUSICALLE CHOLO ORCHESTRA one of the bands for the next tropical diaspora at 15.05.16. Also the word “cholo” in Spanish language go by following definition in the dictionaries: “A Latin American man with American Indian blood; a mestizo.” or “A lower-class Mexican, especially in an urban area.” and the origin of this word could be pointed in the mid 19th century: American Spanish, from Cholollán (now Cholula), in Mexico. The Great Band Musicalle Cholo Orquestra based in Berlin understand the very meaning of diaspora and to be a cholo! yes Musicalle is compromised to break this old unfounded racial scheme over hundreds of years of colonialism, conquests and ignorance with his music Musicalle desire to show all the people that the most important thing we have as children of the diaspora is the awareness TO BE A CHOLO!

Berlin is diaspora! Be a tropicalist and a cholo!

MUSICALLE CHOLO ORCHESTRA is a project that wants to bring the latin music closer to people. The band plays acoustic typical instruments that are mostly played in Latinamerica. Different rhytms of Latinamerica are rediscovered, reinterpreted redefined and refined.

Musicalle Berlin is:

Byron Carrasco – ECUADOR – Gitarre, Gesang, Perkussion
Hiula Rodriguez – MEXICO – Perkussion
Iván Acosta – COLOMBIA – Bass, Kontrabass
Jabier Garrafa – PERÚ – Sax, Flöte, Bongos, Gesang
Mauricio Prieto – COLOMBIA – Trompete

SAMBADA DE COCO BAND

Coco is an African-influenced musical rhythm that originated in Northern Brazil.


“Coco” may also refer to the style of dance performed to the music, a kind of stomping. The name “Coco” (Portuguese for “coconut”) is a common Northeastern Brazilian slang for head, referring to the fact that song lyrics are often improvised. Coco is often performed with a repetitive musical beat and call and response singing reminiscent of Capoeira music. The music is commonly performed at traditional parties in the Northeast, such as weekend street parties and Carnival. Coco is also alternatively known as “embolada” (another slang word, meaning “entangling”, referring to the fast, slurred, machine-gun style of singing). The characteristic sound of coco arises from four instruments commonly used in its performance: the ganzá, surdo, pandeiro, and triangle. Performers also often wear wooden clogs, the stomping of which adds a fifth percussive element.

About the Music from a diasporic point of view

THE TROPICAL DIASPORA EXPERIENCE
LIVE AND STRICTLY VINYL

*Diaspora is the dispersion of a population from their native land (from Greek διασπορά, “scattering, dispersion”)
About the Music from a diasporic point of view
Recently, scholars have distinguished between different kinds of diaspora, based on its causes such as imperialism, trade or labor migrations, or by the kind of social coherence within the diaspora community and its ties to the ancestral lands. Some diaspora communities maintain strong political ties with their homeland. Other qualities that may be typical of many diasporas are thoughts of return, relationships with other communities in the diaspora, and lack of full assimilation into the host country.With the Tropical Diaspora Roots Sound we try to make reflections on a diasporic phenomenon in the Music. This refection show us that the whole Music we select in our events and all other movements connected to the tropical term come originally from Africa. All music styles at the and come directly from there or was reinvented in an African diaspora in other continents like south America, Carib or north America. Currently we experience the clash of all Diaspora in Europe where all people from all over the world can meet and share his own musical influences with other people. The result of this melting pot we call TROPICAL DIASPORA and fate, it seems, is not without a sense of irony that happens in Berlin at the YAAM. Unfortunately, no one can be told what the Tropical Diaspora is. You have to hear it for yourself! An example of our concept of diaspora in the music, the Tropical Diaspora Vol. 26 in the old YAAM Venue -12 Grad Celsius.Two legends in the Afrobeat together in the stage with a young band with guys from many countries in Europe also Akwasi & Kologbo Feat. World Squad with the song by  Kologbo – Remember Fela Anikulapo Kuti.

“I want to play music that is meaningful, that stands the test of time,”. “It’s no longer commercial; it’s deep African music, serious music,….” – FELA KUTI

Edition “Records Caravan

Dj GArRinchA on tour in Brazil 2016 with the Tropical Diaspora® Records Caravan

Hello Tropicalistas in Berlin, after our last event last week me and the Tropical Diaspora will make a break for a while just to get some fresh inspiration in one of the Afro Diaspora regions in South America in this case the region called Brazil from where i come from, nevertheless the idea is the same and i will try to bring this thoughts to my people in Brazil, for example…
For us the term Diaspora is more then that and resumes our mission i.e. bring the diaspora music near to the people in this case here in Berlin. The city in Germany with the highest migration population with people coming from all over the world. We use Tropical Diaspora as the platform where everybody meet each other and share their passions and inspirations. I this very special case with music a transcendent form of culture that blow up the boundaries of ethnic exclusionism, prejudice or racism, phenomenas that are very present in the migration context in European cities in the past and stronger in these globalized days…

Ahoi Tropicalistas, for the first time in Europe the clash of two great Latin-American rhythms Cumbia and Forró on the stage! “This night will stay in your memory for a long time!” with this phrase we began the promotion for our Forrúmbia party in Berlin last august. The idea got reality and more then 350 people dance non stop together 3 hours with both bands and in the after party with me Dj Garrincha and Bongo in the BiNuu venue in the heart of Kreuzberg! No doubt we will invest more time e energy on this matter to organize another one, but in the mean while you can check the unreleased live recording our great concert, here the Cumbia part with La Mula Santa!

TROPICAL DIASPORA VOL.37 ★ Featuring Super Spanish Combo ★ Teaser

WARNING!!! ★ The recording is raw and not clean but nevertheless don´t lose the energy and charisma this guys irradiate on the stage! and is contagious, it can be that you will dance all the time hearing this Broadcast ★ WARNING!!!

Hej Tropicalistas, we are proud to release the new Live Recording our last great Afro Latin concert inna YAAM featuring Super Spanish Combo from Barcelona! One of the highlights this summer for us Tropical Diaspora and anyway for the YAAM. Those Guys were in Berlin for more then 2 mouths everyday in the streets of Berlin, playing their great mix from HipHop Latin and Afro rhythms, the result was a full dance floor, our guest dance for more then 2 hours with the contagious songs of the Combo from Barcelona! Check it out!

Do you know Pachanga? Because we at the Tropical Diaspora don´t expect that everything we talk about in the tropical matter is something obvious let´s begin with the basics. Already Wikipedia know´s what Pachanga is or just let´s say they try to define it, also…

“Pachanga is a genre of music which is described as a mixture of son montuno and merengue. This type of music has a festive, lively style and is marked by jocular, mischievous lyrics. The name came about to describe the genre in Cuba in 1959.” and The Argentine-Cuban guerrilla Ernesto ” Che ” Guevara would say about the ideology of the revolution: “This is a socialism with pachanga ‘.”

Also in this special case with the Super Spanish Combo i could define Pachanga like that “Pachanga with responsibility and conscience” is what i call the Combo affinity to texts with strong content.

Yours Garra!

WHAT IS MARACATU?

MARACATU

“With the intensive slave trade in Brazil during the 16th century, the number of black slaves soon far exceeded the number of Portuguese in the colony. In order to maintain control over the situation and for administrative purposes, the Portuguese in the year 1538 made it a practice to appoint so-called “kings” and “queens” among the black slaves. These “royalties” enjoyed a privileged status, compared to other slaves, over which they were given authority to “reign”. The coronation ceremonies of the black kings, which were called “Kings of Congo” (Reis do Congo) were surrounded by festivities, called congadas, where music and dance played an important part. In the state of Pernambuco, the encounter between African percussion-based music and the more melodic Portuguese music tradition during the congada festivities, gave rise to a new style of music: maracatu.

Maracatu music is driven by percussion instruments called alfaia, tarol, caixa, ganzá, agogô (also knows as gonguê) and zabumba, the sound of which is accompanied by a solo singer. The alfaia and tarol drums emit an unusually deep, heavy and powerful sound, which creates the thunderous beat that is the main characteristic of maracatu music. The sound waves of these drums affect not just the ears of the listener, but the whole body.

With the abolition of slavery in Brazil in 1888, the coronations of the “Kings of Congo” also came to an end. But the maracatu music stayed very much alive and became the most popular music among the lower classes in Pernambuco, especially during the carnival and other religious festivities. During carnival, different maracatu group’s started to form processions and parades, often dressed in extravagant and colorful outfits, and thus in many ways preceded the samba processions, which were later to become the trade mark of the Rio de Janeiro carnival. The maracatu groups were called “nações” (nations) and played much the same role as the samba schools of Rio de Janeiro. Several of these maracatu nations still exist today, including Nação Elefante (founded in 1800), Leão Coroado (founded in 1863) and Estrela Brilhante (founded in 1910).

On the modern Brazilian popular music scene the Recife based band Nação Zumbi is by far the most famous representative of maracatu music. Nação Zumbi, lead by their charismatic singer and songwriter Chico Science, took Brazil by storm during the mid 1990’s, with an exciting blend of modern rock music and the heavy percussion sound of traditional maracatu. Cordel do Fogo Encantado and Pedro Luis e a Parede are two other popular contemporary bands, which have repeatedly used maracatu in their music.”

BAQUE FORTE BERLIN

The group Baque Forte Berlin was founded officially in the summer of 2006 after several workshops that the percussionist Fabiano Lima had performed in Berlin. The interest of a few friends who were impressed by the energy and magic of the drums of Maracatu Nação, was the reason for the consolidation of the group. The primary influence on the rhythms of Baque Forte Berlin are the major Maracatus of Baque Virado or Nação such as: Encanto da Alegria, Estrela Brilhante, Estrela Brilhante de Igarassu, Leão Coroado, Porto Rico… But other rhythms from the Northeast of Brazil as the Coco, the Ciranda, Afoxé, rhythms of the Candomblé and also modern rhythms are part of the repertoire.

Forró Maragandá @ Tropical Diaspora VOL.40

The Brazilian Latin rhythms are known world wide, we experience in the last years a explosion popularity in Europe of one specific rhythm, also the Forró. Berlin as the unofficial diaspora capital in Germany couldn’t stay out in this development and bring out for sure one of the most powerful forró band in Europe. With a strong traditional forró repertoire rhythms like xote, baião and arrasta-pé. The basic formation of the band with Philipe Alves playing Accordion, João Afojubá with Percussions, Fabiano Lima with the Zabumba and Mariano Habib with the Triangle is enough to bring the floor to dance together all night long and beyond bring people from all districts in the city to the place where they play. In the last two tropical diaspora events the band had a guest from Pernambuco – Brazil playing Rabeca the violin instrument adapted to the forró, his name is Hans Santos and live in Germany for a while this year and will be in the next event for the last time this year, also don´t miss the 28.08.15 inna YAAM Berlin. The last event in the whole original formation featuring Hans Santos with the Rabeca was the highlight in this year for me as Tropical Diaspora and for our guest that couldn’t imagine what a wonderful night they would experience.

Fresh from gigs in Brazil, the DJ are kicking off a new series of monthly parties in the YAAM (www.yaam.de), featuring many local Bands and DJ´s from Europe and worldwide.

About the Music from a diasporic point of view

THE TROPICAL DIASPORA EXPERIENCE
LIVE AND STRICTLY VINYL

*Diaspora is the dispersion of a population from their native land (from Greek διασπορά, “scattering, dispersion”)
About the Music from a diasporic point of view
Recently, scholars have distinguished between different kinds of diaspora, based on its causes such as imperialism, trade or labor migrations, or by the kind of social coherence within the diaspora community and its ties to the ancestral lands. Some diaspora communities maintain strong political ties with their homeland. Other qualities that may be typical of many diasporas are thoughts of return, relationships with other communities in the diaspora, and lack of full assimilation into the host country.With the Tropical Diaspora Roots Sound we try to make reflections on a diasporic phenomenon in the Music. This refection show us that the whole Music we select in our events and all other movements connected to the tropical term come originally from Africa. All music styles at the and come directly from there or was reinvented in an African diaspora in other continents like south America, Carib or north America. Currently we experience the clash of all Diaspora in Europe where all people from all over the world can meet and share his own musical influences with other people. The result of this melting pot we call TROPICAL DIASPORA and fate, it seems, is not without a sense of irony that happens in Berlin at the YAAM. Unfortunately, no one can be told what the Tropical Diaspora is. You have to hear it for yourself! An example of our concept of diaspora in the music, the Tropical Diaspora Vol. 26 in the old YAAM Venue -12 Grad Celsius.Two legends in the Afrobeat together in the stage with a young band with guys from many countries in Europe also Akwasi & Kologbo Feat. World Squad with the song by  Kologbo – Remember Fela Anikulapo Kuti.

Forró Maragandá @ Tropical Diaspora VOL.40

The Brazilian Latin rhythms are known world wide, we experience in the last years a explosion popularity in Europe of one specific rhythm, also the Forró. Berlin as the unofficial diaspora capital in Germany couldn’t stay out in this development and bring out for sure one of the most powerful forró band in Europe. With a strong traditional forró repertoire rhythms like xote, baião and arrasta-pé. The basic formation of the band with Philipe Alves playing Accordion, João Afojubá with Percussions, Fabiano Lima with the Zabumba and Mariano Habib with the Triangle is enough to bring the floor to dance together all night long and beyond bring people from all districts in the city to the place where they play. In the last two tropical diaspora events the band had a guest from Pernambuco – Brazil playing Rabeca the violin instrument adapted to the forró, his name is Hans Santos and live in Germany for a while this year and will be in the next event for the last time this year, also don´t miss the 28.08.15 inna YAAM Berlin. The last event in the whole original formation featuring Hans Santos with the Rabeca was the highlight in this year for me as Tropical Diaspora and for our guest that couldn’t imagine what a wonderful night they would experience.

ONE DICTIONARY = ENTRANCE DISCOUNT

Dear Tropicalistas,

all regulars of our events know that Tropical Diaspora cares not only about Music, but about everything and everybody related to our events, from the people that work here to the music selection we play and the bands we engage for the live shows. We don’t only go to a venue and do some event for our pleasure, but we try to involve everybody in our matter. For example, in the venue YAAM where Tropical Diaspora has its origins, in this place every single person that works on the day of our event is part of it: starting from the cleaners to the people tending the bar and the technicians and of course – most visible – the bands and guest DJs. A few years ago, at the first big event – Tropical Diaspora was still called Brazil Roots – we started with a Charity event for a great social institution in São Paulo.

tp_slideshow_044

To remember this tradition in a time where the refugee situation is becoming grim reality for more and more people, we at Tropical Diaspora would like to invite everybody to bring some contribution, i.e. donation for the refugees in Berlin to our events. An immigrant myself, I remember the first thing I needed was a dictionary, and you can easily imagine that the refugees in Germany would need one urgently.

Here is our suggestion to all guests at the Tropical DiaporaEvents in Berlin:

“Brasilien trifft Berlin 2015” Literatur Festival

Die Livraria Berlin ist glücklich darüber, auch 2015 wieder Gastgeber für so ein vielseitig kulturell versiertes Brasilien sein zu können. “Brasilien trifft Berlin” ist ein Festival, das Raum zum Dialog öffnen soll. Zwischen denjenigen, die eingewandert, ausgewandert oder einfach am umherwandern sind. Zwischen denjenigen, die sesshaft sind und denjenigen, die auf allen oder keinem der (an)gebotenen Stühle sitzen wollen. Im 3. Jahr in Folge bekennt Brasilien in diesem Rahmen Farbe, Musik, Literatur -und das nicht zu knapp dank der Unterstützung der Embaixada Brasileira und dem unbeirrbarem Engagement einiger Umtriebiger. Damit auch im nächsten Jahr Brasilien und Berlin wieder zusammentreffen und weiter (zusammen)wachsen können, suchen wir (verborgene) Talente und Kunst(v)ermittler, die das Programm aktiv mitgestalten oder Ideen bzw. (finanzielle) Antriebskraft für seine Umsetzung haben.

 

DAS PROGRAMM

Ausführliches Programm finden Sie unter http://eventoberlin.com

Di.06/10 19:00 Uhr Konzert mit Henry Burnett

Henry Burnett wurde  1971 in Belém do Pará geboren. Aktuell arbeitet er als Dozent und an seinem Post-doc an der Universidade Federal de São Paulo (Unifesp). Als Musiker hat er vier CDs aufgenommen:  Der 1996 veröffentlichten experimentellen Linhas Urbanas folgten 2006 solo Não Para Magoar  und 2007 Interior, die zusammen mit Florencia Bernales in Buenos Aires aufgenommen wurde, sowie 2010 das musikalische  Audio-Buch Retruque/Retoque, zusammen mit dem Dichter Paulo Vieira aus Pará. Außerdem produzierte er 2012 mit dem Musiker und Dichter Julio Luchesi aus São Paulo die CD Depois da revoada. Zu Burnetts eher akademischen Publikationen zählen:Cinco prefácios para cinco livros escritos: uma autobiografia filosófica de Nietzsche (Tessitura Verlag, Belo Horizonte, 2008), ein Sammelband  zu Musik und Philosophie Nietzsche, Adorno e um pouquinho de Brasil (Verlag der Unifesp, 2011) und  eine Ausgabe der  Philosophie-Serie des Loyola Verlags Para ler O Nascimento da Tragédia de Nietzsche (2012).

Mit diesem Hintergrund ist es wenig verwunderlich, dass Oswald Canibal, Ergebnis einer weiteren Zusammenarbeit von Burnett  und Vieira,  diverse Einflüsse  und Stile vereint: von der modernistischen Dichtung eines Oswald Andrade über die Philosophie der Gegenwart eines Benedito Nunes, ist auch der Spagat zwischen São Paulo und Belém do Pará Thema.

Mi.07/10 19:00 Uhr Lesung mit Zé do Rock Moderation : Ingrid Hapke

Zé do Rock is vor verdammt langer zeit in Brasilien geboren, hat 14630 tage gelebt, 1357 liter alkohol gesoffen, 940 stunden flöte und 648 stunden fussball gespielt, 200000 kilometer in 1457 autos, flugzeugen, schiffen, zügen, oxenkarren und traktiren geträmpt, 104 länder und 16 gefängnisse besucht, sich 8 mal verliebt, ein film gedreht, eine kunstsprache erfunden, ein vereinfachtes deutsch kreirt, hat nix studiert und lebt noch heute, maistens in münchen.

Fr.09/10 19:00 Uhr Clarice Stunde mit Lianer Krüger , Sergio Gobi und Fabian Klentzke

Die „Hora de Clarice“ ist eine Verbeugung vor der großen brasilianischen Dichterin Clarice Lispector (1920 – 1977) und wird in vielen Orten ihres Landes alljährlich zelebriert. Beunruhigend, vielschichtig, schonungslos ist die Literatur Clarice Lispectors, ihre Sicht auf die menschliche Innenwelt. Sie wird in einem Atemzug mit Kafka, Pessoa und Dostojewski genannt. Mit Auszügen aus ihren Romanen „Nahe dem wilden Herzen“, „Der Apfel im Dunkeln“ und „Die Sternstunde“ und Musik aus Brasilien laden Liane Krüger (Sprecherin), Fabian Klentzke und Sergio Gobi (Musik) ein, die Dichterin und ihr Werk neu zu entdecken.

Mitwirkende:
Liane Krüger – Sprecherin, Textfassung
Sergio Gobi – Gesang, Gitarre, E-Bass, Sprecher
Fabian Klentzke – Piano, Chalumeau, Sprecher, Gesang

Di.13.10 19:00 Uhr „Hamburg trifft Angola in Berlin „ mit Barbara Mesquita

Die Anthologie “Angola entdecken!” greift mit ihrem Titel das Motto einer Bewegung angolanischer Intellektueller aus dem Jahr 1948 auf, die entscheidenden Einfluss auf den Unabhängigkeitskampf in Angola hatte und zeichnet in literarischen Texten von 14 renommierten Autoren wie Pepetela, Luandino Vieira oder Ondjaki die Geschichte des Landes seit der Kolonisierung nach. Der Bezug zu Brasilien liegt dabei auf der Hand: Geschätzt 4 bis 5 Millionen Angolaner wurden zwischen dem 17. und dem 19. Jahrhundert als Sklaven zumeist nach Brasilien verkauft. Die Herausgeberin Barbara Mesquita wurde 1959 in Bremen geboren. Sie hat Romanistik, Politikwissenschaft und Journalistik studiert und lebt als Literaturübersetzerin, Autorin und Konferenzdolmetscherin in Hamburg.

Mo.19/10 19:00Uhr  Copa,Caipi , Catastrofes mit Prof.Dr.Stephan Tomerius Moderation: Washington Barella

Im Jahr der Fußballweltmeisterschaft reist ein Berliner Professor mit Lehrauftrag an die Universität São Paulo. Wassermangel in der Stadt, Bildungsproteste und die „Copa das Copas“ ante portas: Die angespannte Situation im Gastgeberland wird wie durch ein Brennglas sichtbar. In unterhaltsamen Geschichten rund um Freunde, Familie und Fußball fängt der Autor die off ene und warmherzige Lebensart der Brasilianer ein, schildert aber auch die brisante soziale Schiefl age im Land. Von der Mega-City São Paulo führt die Reise weiter über den Zuckerhut in Rio de Janeiro bis zum Zuckerrohr ins nordöstliche Alagoas. Für Freunde Brasiliens und die, die es noch werden wollen, liefert das Buch amüsante und informative Einblicke in die brasilianische Lebensweise, Gesellschaft, Kultur und Politik – als begleitende Reiselektüre und zugleich Liebeserklärung an ein wunderschönes, widersprüchliches Land.

Fr.16/10 19:00 Uhr Lesung mit Udo Baingo , Rafael Montovani und Luisa Coelho Moderation : Ingrid Hapke
Poesie heute
Die in Berlin ansässigen Dichter aus Brasilien und Portugal diskutieren über das Leben und Dichten in anderen Sprachwelten. Ist Fremd-Sein oder die Fremde eine Quelle der Inspiration? Wie „übersetzen“ sie Situationen und Erlebnisse “auf Deutsch” in Poesie “auf Portugiesisch”? Hat ihre poetische Muttersprache andere Akzente bekommen?

Di.20/10 19:00 Uhr Lächle , Brasilien ! Du wirdst gerade gefilmt mit Henning Fülbie Moderation : Dr.Axel Gutmann

Der Autor hat 9 Jahre im südbrasilianischen Porto Alegre gelebt und gearbeitet. In seinem Buch beobachtet er neugierig und amüsiert, aber gelegentlich auch fassungslos brasilianischen Alltag. In Brasilien wird viel häufiger gelächelt als in Deutschland. In Aufzügen finden sich kuriose Schilder, und bei Wegweisern auf der Straße ist äußerste Vorsicht geboten. Henning Fülbier wurde in Stuttgart geboren und lebt in Berlin. Er war lange Jahre Lehrer und Dozent in der Lehrerausbildung und arbeitet heute als freier Regisseur, Autor und Journalist. Er inszeniert und schreibt Theaterstücke und Erzählungen und spricht jede Woche einen Kommentar für deutschsprachige Radiosendungen in Brasilien.

Do.21/10 19:00 Uhr Lesung mit André Santa’Anna Moderation : Michael Kegler

André Sant’Anna, geboren 1964 in Belo Horizonte, ist Schriftsteller und Musiker und arbeitet als Redakteur für das Fernsehen und in der Werbung. Er ist Autor der Trilogie Amor (Liebe), Sexo (Sex) und Amizade (Freundschaft), des Romans O paraíso é bem bacana (Das Paradies ist ziemlich klasse) sowie der Kurzgeschichtensammlung Inverdades (Unwahrheiten) und O Brasil é bom (Brasilien ist gut). Seine Texte sind in verschiedenen Anthologien vertreten, unter anderem in “Os cem melhores contos brasileiros do século XX” und “As cem melhores crônicas brasileiras”. Sein Text “Gott ist gut “erschien 2013 in deutscher Übersetzung in der österreichischen Zeitschrift “Lichtungen”.

Fr.22/10 19 Uhr Konzert mit Liederabend mit der Sängerin Andreia Maulaz und Pianistin Andréa Huguenin Botelho

Thema des Konzertes: Liederabend mit Werken des brasilianischen Komponisten Alberto Nepomuceno (1864-1920). Über sein Leben und die Zeit, die er in Berlin lebt, wird während des Konzertes von Andrea Huguenin Botelho vorgetragen.

Fr.23/10 19:00 Uhr Konzert mit Ivan Santos

Die Musik auf seiner neuen CD kann man als ”World Pop“ bezeichnen. Es ist eine Sammlung von Songs mit eigenem Charakter, die aber trotzdem mit populärer Musik verbunden sind. Man erhält eine sehr originelle Mischung aus brasilianischer Tradition und moderner urbanen Musik.  “Mit seiner Musik macht Ivan Santos ein Update von einem Teil der brasilianischen Musiktradition”. Santos macht seine Musik und drückt seine Gefühle auf einer nicht nur in Europa noch relativ unbekannten Weise aus, sondern auch ziemlich einzigartig für Brasilien. Es ist Musik für “Körper und Geist” – auch diejenigen, die nicht tanzen, werden nicht stillhalten können. Ivan Santos wurde in Nordosten Brasiliens geboren, wo die Volkskultur aus dem indianischen, afrikanischen, portugiesischen und arabischen Erbe entstanden ist. Dort begann er, Musik zu machen, bevor er nach Rio de Janeiro ging, wo er 13 Jahre als freischaffender Musiker und Komponist lebte. Während dieser Zeit schrieb er für das Fernsehen und Theater. Seitdem haben viele renommierte brasilianische Künstler wie Ney Matogrosso, Lenine, Silverio Pessoa und Elba Ramalho seine Lieder aufgenommen. Santos lebt seit mehr als achtzehn Jahren in Frankfurt.

Fr.23.10 22:30 Uhr ★ Tropical Diaspora ★ Performance  mit André Sant’Anna und Konzert mit Forró Maragandá

Lieber Tropicalistas, sei begrüßt! Die Magische Forró Nacht kehrt in all seiner Energie wieder ins YAAM, und wir laden Sie herzlich dazu ein, dabei zu sein! Vergessen Sie die Wirklichkeit für ein paar Stunden und lassen Sie Ihrer Körper Bewegen – ein Show voller Live Musik zum Zusammen Tanzen.

Zur Band Forró Maragandá:
Brasilianischen Rhythmen sind weltweit bekannt und in den letzten Jahren erleben wir eine Explosion der Popularität in Europa von einem bestimmten Rhythmus, also Forró.

Mi.28/10 19:00 Uhr Paraiso Ocupado mit Osterholt , vitentuis und Hapke Moderation: Ingrid Hapke Sprachen: Englisch und Portugiesisch.

Paraíso Ocupado ist ein künstlerisches Projekt, das zunächst ein  kaum bekanntes Pilotprojekt  zu rekonstruieren sucht, das der berühmte Architekt und Urbanist Lucio Costa für die Barra da Tijuca, in den 60er Jahren entworfen hatte. Die Barra da Tijuca ist ein etwas abgelegenes Stadtteil von Rio de Janeiro,  wo heute das olympische Dorf für 2016 gebaut wird. In seinen anfänglichen Skizzen stellte sich Costa eine moderne Infrastruktur vor,  aus  „Inseln“ von  runden Wohntürmen bestehend, die der namhafte Architekt Oscar Niemeyer entworfen hatte. Diese würden von Menschen unterschiedlicher sozialer Schichten bewohnt werden, sich in die noch recht unberührte Natur einfügen und die Landschaft weitestgehend erhalten. Doch mit Beginn der Baumaßnahmen Ende der 60er Jahre verwandelte sich die Barra da Tijuca in ein urbanes Eldorado für Baufirmen und Makler. Die Immobilienspekulationen, Territorialkämpfe und Korruptionsfälle verhinderten den eher sozialistisch gedachten Plan von Costa und Niemeyer:  Heute prägen die exklusiven gated communities der brasilianischen Neureichen das Stadtbild. Mit dem Bau des olympischen Dorfes hier, der Räumung von Favelas, um Hotels an ihre Stelle zu setzen und der Mißachtung von Naturschutzgebieten, um Golfanlagen entstehen zu lassen,  wiederholt sich die Geschichte der urbanen Erschließung der Barra da Tijuca  in einem aktuellen Kontext. Der visuelle Künstler Wouter Osterholt stellt unterschiedliche Phasen des Projektes Paraíso Ocupado vor, das er seit 2010 zusammen mit Elke Uitentuis, Raphi Soifer und Ingrid Hapke durchführt. Es basiert auf vielfältigen historischen und dokumentarischen (Archiv-)Material und Interviews. In der Ruine eines Niemeyer-Turms, der nie zu Ende gebaut wurde, fanden die Künstler  in einem verlassenen Archiv z.B. das Drehbuch für die 1972 in der Barra da Tijuca geplanten Expo (die nie stattfand). Die Künstler drehten den Werbefilm für die Bauvorhaben hier in und um die Ruine des Abraham-Lincoln-Turm nach.  Ausschnitte daraus werden in der Veranstaltung gezeigt. Zuletzt machte der Berliner Kultursenat und die Mondriaan Stiftung Recherche und Produktion im Rahmen des Projekts möglich.

Fr.30/10 19:00 Uhr Konzert : Canja Rave mit Chris Hazeltucky

Chris Kochenborger, der Guitarist und Sänger des  brasilianischen Rock-Pop-Folk-Indie Duos Canja Rave, tritt in seinem neuen Solo-Projekt als Chris Hazeltucky auf. Mit diesem künstlerischen Alter Ego, den Kochenborger in Hommage an seine Zeit in Detroit und dessen Musikszene kreierte, begeisterte er  bereits auf vielen Bühnen Europas, Südamerikas, Japans und der USA. Durch Neuauflagen alter Songs wird in dem Konzert insbesondere an die Anfänge von Canja Rave gedacht, deren Repertoire zu diesem Zeitpunkt ausschließlich aus Songs auf Portugiesisch bestand.

LA MULA SANTA

Cumbia from Berlin!

10051427384_cdaffbecd8_bFrom Tierra del Fuego at the extreme southern of South America i present La Mula Santa the first Chilean cumbia band from Berlin. We know already that from the Andes to the Atlantic coast the Colombian Cumbia is more then popular and while in Europe it is still an amazingly well kept secret. Located on the Caribbean coast of Colombia, this music has been not only in Latin America but also international success. La Mula Santa is a multi genre, bilingual (Spanish and German) Latin band from Berlin. The Band identity comes not only from the infectious beat of the Cumbia, but also of different Latin-American rhythms like Merengue, Salsa, Bomba, Guajira, Reggaeton and Latin Rock. The Band play originals and covers and also cover modern and traditional rhythms as we have the ability to play music from different eras. Thus we can play for all ages. We have played all over Europe and overseas, we have played clubs, festivals, community events, corporate functions, private parties, weddings, TV, radio and in the last few years at Tropical Diaspora Roots Sound party.These professional musicians have united forces to create La Mula Santa and bring it to an extreme professional level giving the dancers a sweet Latin flavor and become the people’s choice. The band members have deep rooted Latin flavor and play well known songs with there own twist to them.

GArRinchA (São Paulo / Berlin)

★ Strictly Vinyl Rare Brazilian and Afro Latinamerica Grooves ★

GARrinchA, the resident spinner and creator of the Tropical Diaspora Roots Sound, describes his party’s musical ethos as “A new platform for live music and performance in Berlin dedicated to the fusion of different styles, a culture way that is especially cultivated in Brazil since the days of Tropicalia.”He’s right: The melting pot of samba, bossa, cumbia, dancehall, Afrobeat, Funk, Soul, Salsa and many other styles results in a bump ‘n’ grind groove that the people can’t get enough of. Fresh from gigs in Brazil, the DJ are kicking off a new series of monthly parties in the YAAM (www.yaam.de), featuring many local Bands and DJ´s from Europe and worldwide.

Dr. Sócrates (Vigo / Berlin)

★ Strictly Vinyl Afro Beat meet Latin Vibrations on the Turntables ★

Dr. Sócrates is a Dj and he really have a Dr. in addition. Author, writer and Art Exhibition curator based in Berlin he come from Galicia in North of Spain. Dr. Sócrates has been djing in Berlin for more than ten years in the underground scene, his mix between Afrobeat, Latin, Boogaloo, Reggae, Black Music and much more is the result of a tireless and thorough search for the Beats and Artists that not belong to the music main stream business, thus Dr. Sócrates spins always a lot of surprises with music that you really want to listen but you do not know how.

Bongo (Cali / Berlin)

★ La Regla Legend ★

★The Bongo´s style is like a journey through time. He mixes the Boogaloo the 60s, with the hard salsa of the 70’s from New York, the modern rhythms of Afrobeat and contemporary Latin Hip Hop and the Caribbean music. His performance is an invitation: Your feet will be dance, your ears will be surprised and the head in amazement.

About the Music from a diasporic point of view

THE TROPICAL DIASPORA EXPERIENCE
LIVE AND STRICTLY VINYL

*Diaspora is the dispersion of a population from their native land (from Greek διασπορά, “scattering, dispersion”)
About the Music from a diasporic point of view
Recently, scholars have distinguished between different kinds of diaspora, based on its causes such as imperialism, trade or labor migrations, or by the kind of social coherence within the diaspora community and its ties to the ancestral lands. Some diaspora communities maintain strong political ties with their homeland. Other qualities that may be typical of many diasporas are thoughts of return, relationships with other communities in the diaspora, and lack of full assimilation into the host country.With the Tropical Diaspora Roots Sound we try to make reflections on a diasporic phenomenon in the Music. This refection show us that the whole Music we select in our events and all other movements connected to the tropical term come originally from Africa. All music styles at the and come directly from there or was reinvented in an African diaspora in other continents like south America, Carib or north America. Currently we experience the clash of all Diaspora in Europe where all people from all over the world can meet and share his own musical influences with other people. The result of this melting pot we call TROPICAL DIASPORA and fate, it seems, is not without a sense of irony that happens in Berlin at the YAAM. Unfortunately, no one can be told what the Tropical Diaspora is. You have to hear it for yourself! An example of our concept of diaspora in the music, the Tropical Diaspora Vol. 26 in the old YAAM Venue -12 Grad Celsius.Two legends in the Afrobeat together in the stage with a young band with guys from many countries in Europe also Akwasi & Kologbo Feat.

FEATURING FORRÓ

★FORRÓ MARAGANDÁ

Forró Maragandá @ Tropical Diaspora

The Brazilian Latin rhythms are known world wide, we experience in the last years a explosion popularity in Europe of one specific rhythm, also the Forró. Berlin as the unofficial diaspora capital in Germany couldn’t stay out in this development and bring out for sure one of the most powerful forró band in Europe. With a strong traditional forró repertoire rhythms like xote, baião and arrasta-pé. The basic formation of the band with Philipe Alves playing Accordion, João Afojubá with Percussions, Fabiano Lima with the Zabumba and Mariano Habib with the Triangle is enough to bring the floor to dance together all night long and beyond bring people from all districts in the city to the place where they play. In the last two tropical diaspora events the band had a guest from Pernambuco – Brazil playing Rabeca the violin instrument adapted to the forró, his name is Hans Santos and live in Germany for a while this year and will be in the next event for the last time this year, also don´t miss the 28.08.15 inna YAAM Berlin. The last event in the whole original formation featuring Hans Santos with the Rabeca was the highlight in this year for me as Tropical Diaspora and for our guest that couldn’t imagine what a wonderful night they would experience.

Band Components:

★ Philipe Alves – Sanfona ★ Biano Lima – Zabumba  ★ João Afojubá – Pandeiro ★ Mariano Habib – Triangulo ★
 Featuring Hans Santos – Rabeca
