NAPALMA (article first published : 2007-10-24)

Afro-Brazilian rhythm-wizards Napalma will be back with their Durban "famiglia" on October 27 at the Zulu Jazz Lounge in the Playhouse complex.

In their own words, Napalma say they’re “glad to be back in Durban "é lá em casa"... !”

With an outrageous blend of eclectic electronic programming, sexy samba, hip hop, jazz, rap, vocals from East Africa, a hard working horn and a blitzkrieg of hypnotic drums, Napalma delivers a completely unique and irresistible sound. A recent addition to the band is the talented South African Ben Amato (sax, flute, keyboards & electronica), making Napalma truly 50% Brazilian & 50% African, with Brazilians, Cid Travaglia and Rafael Jabah as well as Ivo Maia from Moçambique.

Napalma produces such diverse styles as samba, kwaito and drum & bass, all fusing perfectly into the uniquely dynamic Napalma sound. Using the latest technology, they are able to deliver cutting edge production fused with spontaneity. The energy and passion they generate on stage, with their own enjoyment of what they are doing being so evident, is tangibly felt by their audience. It is impossible to remain seated or keep still during a Napalma performance! They've been fondly described in the press as that "lunatic electro-djembe-samba band"! For recent video clips and updates on the tour, visit http://www.napalma.com.br or call 072 685 6000 or Roberta 082 321 6894

The performance takes place at 20h00 on October 27 in the Zulu Jazz Lounge. Entry R50pp. More information on 031 304 2377 or email: info@zulujazzlounge.co.za
