Desde que o Filete me pasosu o link da gravadora Akwaaba Music, eu não consigo parar de escutar a rádio de música africana contemporânea que eles têm lá. Nossa, tem uma coisa mais incrível que a outra. Valapena passar dar uma passada pra conhecer.
Eles fazem isso:
Akwaaba is a fair trade label of music from Africa. We feature music by locally established yet globally isolated artists, regardless of musical style or genre.
At our core is an eclectic catalog of African music, ranging from acoustic and traditional sounds to contemporary fusions of urban and dance styles.The scope of music in Africa is staggering. Our catalog reflects and spreads this wealth, in a simple, straight-forward way.
Akwaaba offers a fair and simple deal: we share our net revenue 50-50 with licensees, and sign directly with the artist whenever possible. We do all the work to spread the music worldwide. We distribute, license, manage and represent the artists.
The internet allows us to directly share the music and the journey with increasingly curious and socially-aware fans. Our trips to Africa are meticulously documented on the site: how we found the music, the story behind an artist or a music scene, tidbits about local culture and trends. Videos, sound bites, photos and words to share this first-hand experience with you, enjoy!
E gravam coisas de artistas muito legais, pelo que eu to ouvindo. Tem os angolanos Fakuma e Sem Transporte.
