Manana presents the third release on Manana//Records, an album collaboration between the UK’s Soundspecies and Ache Meyi, based in Santiago de Cuba. The project was born in April 2016 in Santiago, in the balmy weeks leading up to Manana Festival and is the culmination of two chaotic weeks of rehearsals at the Casa Del Danzon and two sessions at the legendary Egrem studios. ‘Ache Meyi’ can be translated into ‘Ache’ (‘power’ or ‘blessings’ in the Yoruba language) and ‘Meyi’ (‘double’ or ‘twin’ or ‘twice’) and the band have their very own power twins, Hector and Rafael. Hector is the senior, patriarchal fgurehead of the group alongside his apprentices Alieke and Rafael. Two female singers, Alina and Maire, complete the lineup. The band’s identity is rooted in an interlocking web of afro-Haitian rhythms like bembe, vodu, gaga and merengue, absorbing these folkloric traditions from the neighbourhoods that they grew up in. Soundspecies are brothers Henry and Olly Keen, a Producer/DJ duo from Dorset who explore the connections between the rhythms of traditional folkloric percussive music and the sounds and forms of electronic dance music. Integrating electronics and melodies initially proved hard: “We were struggling to respond to the frenetic, seemingly impenetrable web of rhythmic sounds, and the singers’ sense of tonality was quite free, jumping from one key to n unrelated one within songs,” recalls Olly. However, at the legendary Siboney Egrem Studios in Santiago, they began separating the instruments, breaking the music down into textures and patterns and trying new directions with the sound. At a later session, Ache Meyi then jammed with kick and snare sounds on the MPC, playing to bembe rhythms recorded during the frst session.
Olly continues, “With a virtuoso like Hector, who has dedicated his whole life to his art, it could have been a challenge for us to suggest respectfully that he does it differently but he was the most open-hearted, patient and positive man. The show at the Manana festival was a euphoric experience for us. We wanted the album to capture and distil some of the energy from that night.”

KEY POINTS:
– Groundbreaking fusion of Cuban folkloric music and electronics
– Third release on MANANA / Records following the groundbreaking MANANA / Festival in Santiago, Cuba in 2016
– DJ support from Gilles Peterson, NTS, Worldwide FM, Henrik Schwarz and many more

Image: 1610220 ARIWO are a Cuban/Iranian four-piece focused on the rich intersection between electronic music, Afro- Cuban rhythm and Iranian mysticism. Their self-titled debut album is the second release on MANANA/ Records, launched as part of the !K7 Collective and inspired by 2016’s groundbreaking MANANA / Festival in Santiago, Cuba.

ARIWO are a Cuban/Iranian four-piece focused on the rich intersection between electronic music, AfroCuban rhythm and Iranian mysticism. Their self-titled debut album is
the second release on MANANA/ Records, launched as part of the !K7 Collective and inspired by 2016’s groundbreaking MANANA / Festival in Santiago, Cuba.
The band brings together POUYA EHSAEI – hailed as belonging “in that precious pile” of Iranian electronic music composers [Boomkat] – and three of London’s most in?uential Cuban musicians, Irakere and Carlos Acosta’s Latin Grammy winning “percussion virtuoso”, HAMMADI VALDES [Time Out], Yussef Kamaal and Sierra Maestra lead trumpeter, YELFRIS VALDES, and godfather of London’s Cuban scene, ORESTE NODA.
To the band, the project’s goal is to “connect our native musical traditions to electronic music in a way that pushes beyond traditional Cuban and Iranian identity, creating
a sound that does not belong to any specifc culture.” The word “ARIWO” means “noise” in Yoruba, a West-African religion that came to Cuba during the transatlantic slave trade and heavily in?uenced the island’s musical development. For the three Cuban musicians in particular, ARIWO is about shining a light on the incredible and largely
unrecognised cultural heritage that resounds through the barrios of Havana, Matanzas, Guantánamo and Santiago de Cuba. This debut release features genres like Yambú, Songo, Guaguancó and Changüí as well as echoes of Havana’s legendary conga processions, EHSAEI programs his electronics and processes the instrumentation live, constantly changing the intensity to create a real-time dialogue that elevates these rich ancestral traditions.

KEY POINTS:
– Debut release by Cuban / Iranian group
– Second release on MANANA / Records following the groundbreaking MANANA / Festival in Santiago, Cuba in 2016
– DJ support from Gilles Peterson, NTS, Radio 3 Late Junction and many more
– Limited edition vinyl format – 500 copies only

FOR FANS OF:
Irakere, Miles Davis, Carl Craig, Yussef Kamal, Sierra Maestra, Carlos Acosta, Floating Points, Henrik Schwarz, Ondatropica, Hugh Masekela, DJ Jigue, Obbatuke, Fourtet Available from 30.06.2017
