Cacique '97 - Chapa 97 EP

Cacique '97 - Chapa 97 EP

label: Footmovin' Records
released: Mar 11, 2011
style: afrobeat funk
format: 320kbps mp3

Cacique'97 (afrobeat collective from Mozambique/Portugal) ended the year of 2010 in beauty, after performing at the most important World Music festivals in Portugal and the prestigious Warsaw Cross Cultured Festival in Poland, alongside artists such as Salif Keita, Ladysmith Black Mambazo and Mayra Andrade. The debut album, released in 2009, announced as the first afrobeat record in the lusophone countries, was rapidly embraced by national and international critics, with the highlight of Okayplayer, from the legendary The Roots.
And what is a Chapa? It is hard to believe that Mozambique does not have an effective public transportation network. The transport is secured by 12 seats Toyota vans called the Chapa! For a negotiable price, these private buses ensure several routes in the country, where in each stop the collector receives the clients payments and tries to convince others to join the ride. Cacique´s Chapa has the number 97 and invites you to take a ride on the lusophone afrobeat.
