MEU KAMBA SOUND @ VODAFONE MEXEFEST 2015
Rocky Marsiano & Meu Kamba Sound
- A live mix of classic luso-afro sounds with modern bass music -
Rocky Marsiano & Meu Kamba Sound is an Amsterdam and Lisbon based collective lead by Portuguese veteran producer/DJ Rocky Marsiano, joined on stage by members of Batoto Yetu Portugal (Toni on percussion + Irina and Marisa as dancers), Sr Alfaiate on scratch and Rodrigo Pereira on live video.
Marsiano’s internationally acclaimed albums “Meu Kamba” and “Meu Kamba Vol. Dois” (Akwaaba Music) serve as the musical back-drop for the live shows, where the re-imagined classics from Angola, Cape Verde, Guiné-Bissau and
Mozambique are re-vamped for the dance-floor.
Dancers and musicians from the renowned Batoto Yetu Portugal traditional African dance and percussion troupe bring their own flavor to the show, the hip-hop touch is always present through the smooth cuts by Portugal’s leading scratch DJ, Sr Alfaiate, while the Meu Kamba bass-filled tracks served live by Marsiano keep the party rolling. Behind the lively stage movements, one of Lisbon’s great new video artists, Rodrigo Pereira, makes sure the visuals are always colorful.
