SAMBADA DE COCO ★Brazilian percussion★
Samba de Coco is a typical rhythm and dance of the coastal regions in the north-east of Brazil, with its roots and origins in the federal states of Pernambuco, Paraíba and Alagoas and has been further developed by Brazilian fishermen and field workers. The Sambada de Coco is worn by Brazilian percussionists who play many different types of coco. This is a collaborative activity for which Coco is sung and danced.
Coco is an African-influenced musical rhythm that originated in Northern Brazil. „Coco“ may also refer to the style of dance performed to the music, a kind of stomping. The name „Coco“ (Portuguese for „coconut“) is a common Northeastern Brazilian slang for head, referring to the fact that song lyrics are often improvised. Coco is often performed with a repetitive musical beat and call and response singing reminiscent of Capoeira music. The music is commonly performed at traditional parties in the Northeast, such as weekend street parties and Carnival. Coco is also alternatively known as „embolada“ (another slang word, meaning „entangling“, referring to the fast, slurred, machine-gun style of singing).
The characteristic sound of coco arises from four instruments commonly used in its performance: the ganzá, surdo, pandeiro, and triangle. Performers also often wear wooden clogs, the stomping of which adds a fifth percussive element.
LA MULA SANTA ★ cumbia salsa chicha pachanga and latin rhythms★

★ Don Rispetto (Napoli / Berlin) ★
Als Radiomoderator habe ich 1993 bei Kiss FM angefangen. Mitte ’97 wechselte ich dann zu radiomultikulti, wo ich eine eigene Samstags-DJ-Special Radioshow „Radio Kanaka International“ moderierte. Diese Show war in erster Linie als Forum für neue Talente, aber auch für etablierte Künstler gedacht, um ihnen die Möglichkeit zu geben, sich auf eigene Weise zu präsentieren („Radio for da people“). Das ganze Spektrum der multikulturellen Off-In-Kultur versammelte sich bei mir im Studio. Die News aus der internationalen Musik- und Kunstszene wurden dann mit dem „Berlingo“ unter die Leute gebracht. Und als Master of Ceremony war und ist es immernoch meine Aufgabe, Programme zu gestalten, Veranstaltungen und Jams zu organisieren und natürlich alles mit einem lockeren Flavour rüberzubringen.
