Luanda calling

Above, a new video from Aline Frazao, filmed live on a breezy Luanda rooftop and here, a link to the free album download for fellow Angolan artist Nastio Mosquito and his new disc, “Mugger EImigrante  (immigrant) & Family Guy”. Mosquito is also a high profile visual  artist who will open a show at New York’s Museum of Modern Art next month.

At last!

After a hefty wait, the third album by Aline Frazao is finally out. It is titled “Insular.” And the rather lovely making-of video, showcasing the Scottish island of Jura where it was produced, has been subtitled for English speakers!

Aline Frazao: Insular

13 11 2015

I’ve been waiting and waiting for this…a first taste of new album, “Insular,” from the Angolan singer.

World music star

I’m looking forward to the new album “Insular” from Aline Frazao, which she previews tantalisingly in the video below shot at her home, in Spain’s Celtic North. Its due out at the end of this month. Aline strikes me as a very modern artist, proudly African yet devoid of cliche – she recently toured Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania (where she recorded the clip above) and has been outspoken about political repression in Angola, but looks just as home as a small town hipster under Europe’s leaden skies

Is this Ethiopia’s first dystopian sci fi film…or not?

The director is Spanish, the money comes from Europe but the setting and the cast are Ethiopian.

New film “Crumbs” shows a surreal post-apocalyptic Addis Ababba, above which hovers the apparently rusting hulk of an alien space pod.

Plus, there is Santa Claus. Sounds interesting.

Speaking of Addis Ababba, look who is in town. The Angolan singer songwriter will vist the Ethiopian capital on an East African tour also taking in Nairobi and Zanzibar. 🙂

Aline – Tanto

‘Tanto’ is the first single from the forthcoming album by Angolan soul singer Aline Frazao, Movimento.
