Luaka Bop presents: Sierra Leone roots bubu trance!

WHAT
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?


 

PRAED
We are proud to invite PRAED to play beforehand. The core of Praed is duo Raed Yassin and Paed Conca, who have their homebase in Beirut. They present their variant of 'shaabi' alias 'Arabic popular music, free jazz and electronics... psychedelic & hypnotic!'
