Internationales Sommerfestival 2014

    Kampnagel – KMH

Jeri-Jeri is the spectacular collaboration between the renowned Berlin-based producer Mark Ernestus and a griot clan of Sabar drummers along with guest Mbalax musicians and vocalists. Aficionados of cutting-edge world music and underground dance will have noted Ernestus' remixes of Afrobeat legend Tony Allen and Kinshasa rockers Konono No. 1, and his co-compilation (with Honest Jon's) of the Shangaan Electro showcase. On the quiet, though, he has become increasingly hooked on Mbalax with its hyper-vivid Sabar and talking-drum workouts, and ultra-repetitive, sick, sequencer-like marimba synths. In early 2011 he travelled to Senegal and the Gambia and ended up working in the legendary Dakar studio former known as Xippi. »800% Ndagga« and »Ndagga Versions« present the results on two albums, splitting vocals and instrumentals: a swingingly masterful style of Mbalax, heady and hard-grooving, with highly complex, fiercely succinct poly-rhythms; an ancient-futuristic music, mesmeric but sharp as nails, super-charged with drama. Get ready to be knocked out.
