King Sunny Ade leads 22 African acts to Coke Studio in Kenya *Flavour, Faly Ipupa, Mi Casa make list

Post  Admin on Wed Sep 11, 2013 3:06 pm

Nigeria's King Sunny Ade will lead 23 musicians from East Africa, Mali, SA and others, to the Season 1 of the Coke Studio in Kenya.


Another Nigerian on the bill of the Coca-Cola-sponsored musical event is Flavour.


These two are the only Nigerian musicians that will perform at the event later this month.


The 23 musicians will select from 3 to 5 tracks each and curate what they would like to do with those songs; who they wish to work with.


In recognition of KSA's huge heritage and influence in global music, David Sanders, a Kenyan TV producer, assured that the Nigerian Juju musician would be part of this project as lead artist.


Coke Studio is a no compromise creative platform where the best of established and emergent talent come together in a studio environment to develop fusion music.


"We see fusion as defined by colliding genres, languages, geographies, ages, instrumentation, including traditional instruments, many of which are fast disappearing," said Sanders.


The plan is for a new 5-year live music TV show for the continent that will garner a new generation of fans.


In season 1 of the musical show, the organiser wants to rework classics, whether it is five years old or 300 years old.


There will be a house band based in Nairobi. The band rehearses in Nairobi while the musicians are flown in later to run dress rehearsals.


The artists' show is a recording session (no host, no audience) done the old way as a live take with full band.


After having spoken with many musicians about delivering media content which really reflects quality and depth of work produced in Africa, "music infrastructure has not really helped to further lateral links, i.e. Francophone, Lusaphone and Anglophile do not really talk or collaborate.


"We reckon that there is serious value in finding a creative space to motivate cross cultural opportunities. In short, our music visual content does not reflect the quality and range of that music - talent shows and videos do not count", he added.


"I think we are seeing audiences increasingly embracing this concept - with cross country media and new media giving, say, Nairobi, Lagos and Joburg audiences, the chance to consume music from anywhere. Mi Casa are just as big here and in Lagos as they are in Joburg.


"Given the right creative environment, we can drive music from Africa and gain stronger breakthrough points into broader markets. Coke Studio is expected to provide African 'Heroes' the chance to connect with youthful audiences by working with new stars and each getting paid for doing it.

"For the youthful audiences, the realisation of where they come from, in terms of music heritage as an expression of culture. "In East Africa, the tremendous value of dance music such as Benga and Lingala, in Nigeria, say, Juju, Fuji and Ewi. Frankly, youth should be aware that King Sunny Ade, Segun Bucknor, Orlando Julius are not just artists your parents listened to".


Other top artistes being targeted are Salif Keita,, HHP, Liquideep, Jimmy Jatt, Just a Band, Joel Sebunjo, Fally Ipupa, Maurice Kirya, Culture Music Club,, Ayub Ogada and Navio

probably Babani Kone, Ben Szabo, Takeifo, Maleh, AKA, Mensah etc.
