Energetic and festive funaná from Cabo Verde
Tabanka is a young Capeverdean group from Rotterdam, whose music has been inspired by
that of Capeverdean artists from an older generation, such as Code di Dona, Bulimundo,
Américo Brito and Bitori. The group has a fresh and contemporary take on funaná: the upbeat, energetic and festive
music and dance style, once forbidden by the Portuguese colonial rulers, which became part
of post-independence Capeverdean identity in the eighties. Funaná was derived from the
music from the descendents of slaves, mixed with contemporary pop and jazz.
Tabanka knows exactly how to put on an exuberant live show!

The duo of Niels Luteijn & Francisco is part of a larger collaboration of Niels Luteijn and Gabriel de Oliveira called q bae. With a mixed emo-/afro-/impro approach, their Brazilian-Caribbean references gain a remarkable twist through instant composition and pop elements. The combination of Niels Luteijn’s sharp ears and malicious drumming strike out a myriad of vigorous rhythms nurtured by zouk, calypso and soundscapes of Dominica, constantly seeking a new groove. Francisco Garrido, a talented guitarist born in Venezuela, has developed a notably mature persona as composer-improviser within the Amsterdam scene, with authoral projects such as The Rain Dance Collective, Perpetual Bike Crash and Dodo Bird.
