Mar & Sol presents BITORI & CHANDO GRACIOSA live at B.leza Lisbon 19th July.

 

Chando Graciosa one of the great funana singers from Cabo Verde, Praia, joins the legend Bitori, to make an album, titled "Bitori Nha Bibinha".

Bitori is one of Cape Verde's oldest accordeon player, he began at a time when funana was forbidden music, not accepted by governments and part of society, but it it was the revolocionary music from the Cabo Verde people.

The success in Cape Verde was phenomenal and the funaná quickly gained the recognition it deserved, especially in urban dance clubs. Bitori's songs quickly became great classics, known and loved throughout the country. But its success was limited only to the Cape Verdean islands and never had the opportunity to travel beyond its limits - until now! All this changed with Analog Africa, which prepared its re-launch in 2016 and began to form a band around Bitori & Chando which features Toy Paris on Drums, Paló no Baixo and Miroca Paris on Percussion. With this band fromation they went around the world and on July 19 thei are back to Lisbon to infect us with this legendary music.

After the concert as always our lable boss is bringing their records for the dj set until the end of the night

Mar & Sol Presents: Pedrinho Live

Pedrinho live in Lisbon! 

 

After 30 years Mar & Sol publisher brings the singer and composer from Cabo Verde Pedrinho back to the stage with his band on 15 June at Musicbox in Lisbon.
 

His debut album "Aleluia" is also our first reissue, in a series of albums that we will be releasing dedicated to Portuguese African music that was produced in Portugal.
Pedrinho is the man on the keyboards and vocals in all his songs, his unique style makes his music stand out in the popular music of Cape Verde bringing some elements and fusions of genres that differ and add something to the traditional rhythms.
He comes from the island of Santiago to Lisbon at the age of 18 and here begins his musical career, when the opportunity arises, he records the album "Aleluia" in the late 70's at the Valentim de Carvalho studios.
Later in the 80's, he produced two more albums "Nhõs Déxa De Conta Mentira" and "Nhõs No Déxa de Stupidês", edited by the Portuguese-African music publisher Ife.

 

To continue the party we have Mar & Sol Soundsystem.
 

Dj set by De Los Miedos, focused on the context of its new Mar & Sol label, which was recently born on São Bento street in Lisbon.
It was also on this street, at another time, where a large part of the African immigrants in the 70's and 80's settled down and developed the Palop culture.
Many were great musicians and had the opportunity to record records that were part of the popular music history of Cape Verde, Angola, Guiné, Moçambique and S.Tomé.
Nowadays it's the sound of these records that we're going to dance with "Mar & Sol Soundsystem" and also follow the reissues of some of these pearls that M & S will bring back to the world.
