Janka Nabay & The Bubu Gang: Late Night concert

Facebook event Share Tweet

Luaka Bop presents: Sierra Leone roots bubu trance!

Free for those attending the Arsenal concert on this same evening in the Main Hall.


Bubu! Dance-trance music from Sierra Leone, where Janka Nabay fled from a civil war and was able to enter The United States. That’s where he found the right musicians for his Bubu Gang and a deal with David Byrne's Luaka Bop label (now for his second, stunning CD 'Build music’).

FOR FANS OF bubu, but also Ghanese highlife, 'polyrhythmic folk tunes', in short: 'Global Grooves where cultures easily mix in a melting pot of electronic beats' and of course 'Awesome tapes from Africa'.

THE PRESS
Pitchfork: 'Nabay's weathered but agile voice is the kind of instrument that would likely sound at home on a sparse field recording.'

FUN FACTS
Sometimes also calls himself 'black cowboy' and surely you still recall the Casio sound?

Response

Malgré une assistance très limitée, ce qui évidemment a eut un impact sur la prestation, Janka Nabay et son bubu gang n'ont pas déçu. C'est une musique très rythmée et dansante et leur dernier album semble être dans la même lignée. Je les recommende sans discussion et j'espère que leur prochaine prestation sera plus suivie, ils le méritent !
