OBÁOBÁ - LEMANJÁLIA VIBES // HACKNEY WICK

FREE ENTRY

Reconcavo Beats is thrilled to announce the second edition of ObáObá on 2nd February 2018!!! This time around we invite you to dive deep into Brazilian regional rhythms and submerge yourself completely in a night of good music and good vibes.

The chosen date for our party is no coincidence… Just a few days before Carnival kicks off, 2nd February is an instrumental date in the Brazilian cultural calendar. It is Iemanjá (or Yemoja) day. Iemanjá is a water deity celebrated across cultures, often depicted as a mermaid, always surrounded by mysteries…So ObáObá - Iemanjá Vibes is all about paying respect the diversity of the Brazilian cultural background and beach culture, and celebrating the Carnival season.

The electric DJ, music researcher and curator Farofa will once again join us in London for this special day. London-based Brazilian folk band Double Xote will also be playing a set created especially for this edition. And of course the bar will serve Cachaça Bartolomeu - be ready to taste delicious caipirinhas and other special drinks!

ObáObá is a collaborative party.

Partners:

Farofa is a Brazilian music researcher and curator based in Porto, Portugal. He specialises in Brazilian music and vinyl, but his influences are also diverse, ranging from modern European sounds to African roots, including psychedelic rock and folk music and is inspired by love and connections. DJ Farofa has performed at venues such as Casa da Música, Café Au Lait, Embaixada do Port and Music Box. He has also played at Festival MIMO (2016/2017), and other parties such as Baile Tropicante, Kebraku, MUSA OPORTO TOUR #1, Candonga, Pilantragi, Mundo Mestiço, DESOBEDOC and Ovar’s Carnival.

Double Xote is a London-based folk trio that celebrates the traditional forró pé-de-serra culture. They are originally from the state of Pernambuco, Brazil.

Cachaça Bartolomeu is a small-batch craft cachaça that has just arrived in London. Since it's aged in native woods, it gives a unique and special flavour to the famous Caipirinha cocktail.

FREE ENTRY

Sense #1 : Perception. An evening exploring audio-visual

Sense is a collaborative project led by artists Patricia Puertas, Joel Smith and Xuân Sinden and Grow in Hackney Wick.

For its second edition, sense will be exploring rhythm. That pattern that we are constantly experiencing through our heartbeat, breathing, blood circulation. But, are we really aware of its constant presence in our life and its importance for communication and social interactions? How does rhythm influence the brain to induce Altered States of Conciousness?

SOUNDISCOVERY // LATE PARTY // HACKNEY WICK

FREE ENTRY BEFORE 10PM // £5 CASH ON DOOR AFTER

For centuries, mankind has been fascinated with the possible sounds of the heavens. We know that sound travels the space and needs a medium through which to travel. Sound results from the disturbance or vibration of the particles in that medium.

Discovering how the sound affects the body and the mind is our mission. We will find the key through your stories, your space battles, and your movements because we wouldn't hear it or feel it otherwise if it wasn't real.

Every Soundiscovery party is a musical journey that takes the listener from Jazz and funk to disco, experimental and new wave to house and techno through carefully selected tracks and skilfully put together DJ sets from each of the Soundiscovery DJ’s.

Line Up:
Nick Williams (Meda Fury / Phonica Records)
Fede (Soundiscovery)
Michele Michinyc Slapper (Soundiscovery)
Phiorio (Soundiscovery / Metroline Limited)

Full on TPI Sound System

COLUMN 258 // EXPERIMENTAL MUSIC PROJECT // LIVE

FREE ENTRY

Column 258 is a 6-piece experimental music project that combines spoken word with improvised alt-punk grunge jazz. They blend both analogue and digital sounds with improvised instruments, found objects and samples; from horns to mini-moogs, guitars to electric pine cones.

They have variously been described as sounding like The Doors meets Nick Cavemeets Soft Machine, meets Gong—but ultimately their sound is truly their own,with a post-modernist feel and apocalyptic energy, soaring and carving its way into a hinterland of soundscapes ...

Whilst it may seem grandiose to lay claim to being label-free or unclassifiable, in the case of C258 it is actually true. This is music as a force for change, seeking escape from the tyranny of conformity and predictability.

EXPERIMENTAL MUSIC FEATURING ZEYN MROUEH + MONACO

FREE ENTRY

A night of experimental music featuring Zeyn Mroueh and Monaco.

ABOUT ZEYN MROUEH

Zeyn Mroueh is a Cypriot-born, Lebanese-Palestinian musician creating industrial soundscapes and experimental noise music.

He composes primarily on the guitar using an array of effects and samples to distort and manipulate traditional music in atonal sound experiences. With creative roots in psychedelic and stoner rock, he references melodic music within the frameworks of his pieces in minimal spells, creating an effect on the listener that reflects his views on the lived experiences of those existing in postmodern society - long bouts of discomfort, confusion, entrancement, struggle that are relieved by few and fragile moments of beauty, love and release."

https://zeynmroueh.bandcamp.com/

ABOUT Grow, Hackney

We are an independently run space and an experiment in ethical business, which includes working with local artists, musicians on collaborative projects to host free events where everyone is welcome.

ARICIA MESS + SPECIAL GUESTS // LIVE MUSIC // FREE ENTRY

FREE ENTRY

Arícia Mess is an Afro Brazilian singer that is gifting us through her staying in London, where a collaboration with the also Brazilian artist Aleh Ferreira has developed and will be exclusively showcased at Grow for your delight!

The live set is filled with the artist's own compositions, filled with groove, grace and joy. A farewell of Aricia, as she leaves London in a high energy party, with special Dj set of Nina Miranda ( Smoke City and Zeep ) and her own as Aricia has her own web/radio podcast "Flower Power" at Radio Vozes.

https://youtu.be/8Ej_-Y6mqi

About Arícia

Brazilian via soul and funk and with righteous black pride, Arícia sings in praises of the natural forces of womanhood, notably the Afro-Brazilian woman. She once again, in her own unique and personal way, recreates the links between Africa and Brazil. Aricia has a peculiar yet powerful, refined, poignant and captivating voice.

For Arícia, art is an offering, a way to lessen the sufferings of many, even the recently departed. Thus, her work is dedicated to and celebrates feminine divinities; the Indian and African women who inhabited this continental country and gave up their lives during decades of slavery and pain. If the ‘terreiro’ drums make the connection with the divine, then on the dance floor the experience is repeated with joy and abandon. Aricia Will be releasing her new four-track EP " Sem Medo Do Mar ", plus two more remixes by producer Victor Rice, in June 2017. Featuring the song "A Fome e o Canibalismo", written by herself and Chico César, one of the top names of Brazilian music.

His popularity grew with the release of his next album MPBSOULSAMBAGROOVE (Nikita) and the single ‘Dona da Banca’, better known as the soundtrack of ‘A Diarista’, the famous Brazilian TV series.

In World Cup at South Africa, Aleh performed with the Banda Black Rio at the FIFA Fun Fest in Durban and Cape Town; Then he embarked upon his first European tour to publicize his second

album Aleh + Samba (Biscoito Fino) including shows at the Brazil Music Week in Oxford’s University, the Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, and the Brazil House exhibition at the Somerset House.

In 2012 he was the special guest on first international tour of Banda Black Rio with shows at New morning (Paris), Amsterdan (Paradiso), Ronnie Scoot’s (London).

In the short space of three years, Moonchild have released two acclaimed albums, and collaborated or played live with many notable names in the soul-jazz scene including Stevie Wonder, Jill Scott, India.Arie, Leela James, The Internet, Kamasi Washington and more. This session comes as part of their first European tour, celebrating one of the albums of the year, 'Voyager'.

They're supported by two ladies from South London. Self-taught songwriter and vocalist Ego Ella May released her debut EP The Tree back in 2013 and has since been teed up as one of the UK's finest soul talents, gaining fans in the shape of UK soul king, Omar Lye-Fook and more.

Sandwiched between the live acts is Alex Rita, part of the family at Sounds Of The Universe and London-based soul disciples/dance-doers, Touching Bass. Expect warm selections that approach worldly rhythms with feeling and a strong dance sensibility.

A soothing, Tuesday evening affair lays ahead.
