World Blend Conference Special tijdens inJazz

28 juni 2019

Rotterdam, het 10e eiland van Kaap Verdie

28 juni – inJazz
LantarenVenster Rotterdam  Tijd: 15.45 – 16.45

Tijdens de jaarlijkse muziekconferentie inJazz is World Music Forum NL weer aanwezig. Dit keer met een Conference Special gewijd aan de Kaapverdiaanse muziekscene. 

Rotterdam, the 10th island of Cape Verde,

Contrary to its dry image the Cape Verde Islands offer fertile futures for many a musical movement. Hardbop-pioneer Horace Silver, alias Horace Ward Martin Tavares Silva, derives from this African archepelago. So does Djunga De Biluca, alias João Silva, who founded Morabeza Records in Rotterdam (1965) by which this harbour city became The 10th island of Cape Verde. De Biluca gave voice to its struggle for independence from Portugal releasing Cesaria Evora’s first single, Bonga’s debut and over fifty other crucial albums. Thanks to him the once forbidden musical styles morna, coladeira and funana could survive. It was Paris-based José da Silva who turned Biluca’s groundbreaking work into a worldwide succes. By founding his own label Lusafrica (1988) and the Kriol Jazz Festival (2009) Capeverdean music spread all over the globe. And, fused again with jazz as CaboCubaJazz-bandleader Carlos Matos from Rotterdam can tell. Carlos Goncalves curates the Morabeza catalogue which fully digitalized has been presented (2018) by the Dutch king to the president of Cape Verde. Moreover, morna will this year be proposed by Goncalves as an Unesco Immetarial Heritage.

Panel – José da Silva (director Kriol Jazz Festival, labelmanager Lusafrica) – Carlos Goncalves (curator Morabeza Records) – Carlos Matos (composer/ bandleader CaboCubaJazz)
