Join us again for this festive and danceable night exploring the clave!

From Sub-Saharan Africa to Cuba and South-America, where it’s at the root of musical genres such as salsa, rumba, conga, son, reggae and dancehall. This year we will explore the clave, the rhythmic pattern that ties a whole world of music together.
Uruguayan musician Miguel Petruccelli invites a band of musicians that share a love for the clave, to make your heart beat to its rhythm.

LINE UP

BERIMA AMO & THE ALL STARS AFRO BAND
DJ BAHER

SPOS
This band first played together in 2019 in Portugal, the home base of José Lencastre. All three musicians have been active members of the European free jazz scene for years. The music of the trio can go into different paths but always flows naturally in constant communication between the three musicians.

For this edition, and as part of the Exclave concept, this three musicians will interpet and improvise over different rhytmical patterns related to afro-cuban music while stretching the boundaries of melody and rhythm.

Jose Lencastre – alto sax | Aleksandar Skoric – bubalki | Miguel Petruccelli – bass

BERIMA AMO & THE ALL STARS AFROBAND
The All Stars AfroBand is a new and dynamic 5-piece band handpicked by Berima Amo, the Amsterdam based Ghanaian trumpeter and bandleader. Members of the band are African session musicians who live and work in the European and Accra music scenes. The band plays a vibrant West African sound that blends authentic high-life dance music with calypso, funk, R&B, salsa and soul music. Berima’s arrangements for this band are inspired by the origins and fundamentals of African rhythmic energy.

Drums, African percussions, happy guitars, bass, keyboards, a brass section, and Berima Amo on trumpet and lead vocals make up the 5-piece All Stars AfroBand. If you can imagine yourself at any of their performances, then we can only imagine you dancing and having a fun time. Don’t miss this band if you like the sounds of Osibisa, Ebo Taylor, King Onyina, Fela Kuti, Hugh Masekela, Nana Ampadu, Ramblers, E.T. Mensah, and afrobeat. Like Amo says: “We are here to spread laughter and togetherness through our music”.
