Radiokijada - Rodrigo Y Gabriela

Radiokijada - Nuevos Sonidos Afro Peruanos Artist Radiokijada
Title Nuevos Sonidos Afro Peruanos
Label Wrasse
Gotan Project’s Christoph H. Müller and Peruvian percussionist Rodolfo Muñoz (Chinchivi, Sandunga) have teamed up to create RADIOKIJADA, a unique musical adventure based upon Afro Peruvian rhythms and culture, a crossover of powerful percussion, strong melodies, deep basslines and contemporary production methods.
RadioKijada have a contemporary approach to Afro Peruvian music whilst respecting its traditions. They confront Afro Peruvian percussion instruments like the Cajon Peruano or the emblematic Quijada (donkey’s jaw bone) with other traditional instruments like the Tambor Bata, and with European tradition of Electronica and Fusion, hence coming up with a new breed of popular dance music, very rhythmic and percussive but also melodic and vocal. The fusion of cultures, which started five centuries ago, goes on, and there are still many things to know and discover, not only for Peruvians but everybody.

Damon Albarn, Tony Allen and Flea. With Erykah Badu, Fatoumata Diawara, the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, M.anifest, and Cheick Tidiane Seck. 
The result is Rocket Juice & The Moon, a triumphant exploration and proliferation of kinetic Afro-funk rhythms: organic, exuberant, communal music-making, evidenced by the project’s live debut on stage as part of the Honest Jon’s Chop Up in late 2011, which hit London, Marseille, Dublin, and Cork to such great acclaim.

Rodrigo y Gabriela - 9 Dead Alive Artist Rodrigo y Gabriela
Title 9 Dead Alive
Label Because
Rodrigo y Gabriela’s 9 Dead Alive is their first album of new material in five years. Written, arranged, and co-produced by the pair, they deliberately attempt to forgo the Latin influence in their music in favor of an all-rock (albeit still acoustic) approach -- which marks a return to their pre-recording roots in heavy metal.

Price: £11.99

Title Live In France
Label Ruby Works
Recorded during various shows on their 2011 world tour, their third live album, Live in France, proves that the pair certainly don’t need to resort to studio trickery, as they effortlessly re-create the quick-fire, fingerpicking, and percussive rhythms of all but three tracks from 2009’s John Leckie-produced 11:11.
