About the show
Playing tracks by
Fela Kuti, Smokey Robinson & the Miracles, Birdie, Almendra, The Breeders and more.
Taking off from politicized Nigeria with Fela Kuti; the hard jazz of Steve Reid; Sly and the Revolutionaires in dub; Smokey Robinson & the Miracles at their saddest; Caetano Veloso in style; Devendra Banhart in tropicalist manners.
In second half we land in the melancholic United Kingdom with Birdie's Ruth Copeland cover; then argentine folk rock band Almendra; swedish El Perro del Mar; a repetitive Placebo lament; the Breeders' classic for loners; then nostalgic brazilian Bebeto 70s samba soul, wishing love and freedom for everyone.
