HOTTER THAN JULY FESTIVAL
This year, the Hotter than July Festival has been organised by:
- Improvised Music Company
- Big Bang Festival
- and Dublin City Council.
Unfortunately, on the day, it was pretty rainy, so I missed part of it for this reason! ☔
However, I listened to and filmed the last 3 bands who performed at the event! 😃😉
If any of you have filmed other bands, feel free to share the links in the comment box! 👍
In the meantime, enjoy these pictures!
ABOUT KAKATSITSI MASTER DRUMMERS
It is one of Africa’s leading traditional drumming groups. Kakatsitsi performs rhythms and chants from a variety of West African cultures in a modern funky style.
They are originally from Jamestown, Accra, Ghana.
Although I had filmed live the Kakatsitsi Master Drummers, the video didn’t save on my phone. 😞
So, let me share with you a video of them taken at a different event. They gave a very similar performance at Hotter than July festival.
Do you start feeling the heat? 🔥
Well, this continued throughout the afternoon. All bands were really energetic and good!
ABOUT MANDEN EXPRESS
Now it’s the turn of Manden Express, the Irish based band. I uploaded a video of them just for you on YouTube! 🎁💗
Finally, the last band La Chiva Gantiva spent literally their stage time jumping around! 💪
ABOUT LA CHIVA GANTIVA
La Chiva Gantiva is a frenetic carnival‐punk racket. It detonates like a Molotov cocktail of:
- and ferociously funky Latin rhythms.
The band formed in Brussels (Belgium) by three Colombian immigrants, who met around a percussion kit. They wanted to produce an original music and assert their cultural roots.
Present La Chiva Gantiva’s members are from:
- and Chile.
I’m sharing you video snippets as well as an audio track of the entire song!
