NGOMA soundsystem debut / Fusion Fest 09

Friday__06/26/2009__01:00-04:00 PM, Seebühne stage:

DJ Zhao-laptop // El Congo-trumpet // Robby Geerken-Percussion

hyper-modern global sonics meets ancestral lineage: psychedelia, abstract sound, ancient world-wide tradition and contemporary electronic bass for your freaky dancing needs.

a good first live set together even if we only ended up doing 2+ hours because of schedule push back... played lots of new material, rumba breaks, voodoo techno, broken afro-beat. Robby banged on the drums fierce and intricate, Congo was just flying with the trumpet and effects. too bad we couldn't record off the main board but video will be edited soon.

always great to work with fusion people, well organized, and full of good cheer. see you all in one year's time :D

Looks like an amazingly fun fest. Would have loved to have been in the audience losing my mind do the jams.

Dear Zhao,
I'm not a blogger, but visit your different waters again and again. It is interesting and engaging. Thank you for all tour efforts.
Now I ask you for help in searching for Now playing list on http://www.chinesemusicworld.com/
I listened that station on 11 July at appr. 18:30 GMT and was amazed hearing the Masterpiece. Please help me identify it.
