Nu Guinea [DJ Set + Live Keys]
TBC [Artum x Voyage DJs]
A collaboration born from a shared passion for organic electronica, Voyage Events and Café Artum present Nu Guinea.
As big admirers of the Neopolitan duo's homegrown grooves, a Birmingham show just had to be on the cards. And what better place to host other than legendary leftfield venue Hare & Hounds Kings Heath.
Live keys, deep record bags, and an intimate backdrop will bring the awesome power of the Nu Guinea vibe to life. Inspired by global sounds, analogue synths, and emotive soul.
TICKETS: £5 / £8 / £12
ABOUT NU GUINEA:
The Neapolitan, Berlin-based duo Nu Guinea create sounds influenced by an imaginary exotic far distant place, shaped by constant research of music from the past.
A project that comes out of jam sessions, melting synthesizers with instruments, containing handcrafted sounds that don't aim for perfection but genuineness. It can be described as a constantly shape-shifting form, always open to new collaborations with other musicians.
Their first EP was released on Early Sounds Recordings in 2014 followed by “World EP” on TARTELET RECORDS. In 2016 they release their first album "The Tony Allen Experiments" featuring Tony Allen, the Afrobeat drum master - also known for his longtime collaboration with the legendary Fela Kuti.
2018 signs a way back to their roots, with the LP "Nuova Napoli", which represents a tribute to their hometown Napoli. In this album the synthesizers fill the spaces between the past and the future, tightening in a single body of acoustic instruments, electronics, and voices in Neapolitan dialect.
