Riddims Tropicale #32 – Berlin Carnival Edition
This month Berlin holds the huge festival Karneval der Kulturen. With hundreds of nice parties going on and also the huge parade on Sunday with around 80 music groups and trucks KdK is definately a date to mark in the calender for all Berliners and the many guests from the neighbor countries.
Catch me playing at “Soca on the beach (Badeschiff)” or somewhere floating between parties and music trucks.
Anyway, to celebrate it’s a tradition here to have a special edition podcast. This edition of Riddims Tropicale is packed with Carnival vibes, mostly new Soca, African and Tropical – over 2,5 of music! Including brandnew tunes from the “Soca in a flash”-Album by Blood & Soka Kartel – soon out on Faluma. Last little more than 30min are strictly for you Soca nerds, dedicated to Bouyon from Dominica and VI Soca from St. Thomas Carnival.
Thank you for the great feedback on the past issues – #30 (Guadeloupe/Martinique Edition) have been downloaded over 10000 times, #31 already 6000 and the Semba Oh Semba mix collected almost 5000 views on youtube. Thanks again!
No long talk, turn the speakers up, have some drinks at hand and take care of the bumper when bumper come over.
or as always as iTunes podcast.
