Canteca de Macao

De Spaanse fusiongroep Canteca de Macao is in eigen land razend populair. De band combineert rumba, ska, reggae en flamenco tot een even aanstekelijk als warmbloedig geheel. In hun thuisland zijn ze zo populair dat ze al ruim voor hun debuutalbum Cachai (2005) alle grote zalen uitverkochten, en inmiddels heeft ook de rest van Europa hen ontdekt. Onlangs verscheen hun vijfde album Lugares Comunes (2015), waarop de band laat horen dat ze rijper zijn geworden. Minder partybangers dus en meer rustige nummers – waardoor de stemmen van Anita en Chiki nog beter tot hun recht komen. Dit is Canteca de Macao op de toppen van hun kunnen!

Canteca de Macao are back with ‘Lugares Comunes’, their most soul-baring and personal album to date.

With ‘Lugares Comunes’, Canteca de Macao have dispensed with all prejudices and stereotypes and shut out the ghosts of the past, opting to bare their souls musically and sing from the heart. They have taken the fight from the streets to their souls in order to speak to us about inner growth, about precise and precious moments, and about love and sorrow that comes from within.

All those who know and have followed the career of this group from Madrid will find “Lugares Comunes” a more mature album, on which Anita’s vocals and the lyrics come to the fore, in contrast to the musical frenzy of their previous work. And while it may be further away from that hardcore party vibe, this album sounds stronger than ever.

For those listening to Canteca for the first time, this album will be a window into a unique universe, the universe of Anita and Chiki, who have decided to let us into their private space, taking us on a journey through their life in ten songs that veer between bright rumbas with a beach-like vibe and elegant sounding pop.

Canteca de Macao will showcase their new live show on the WOMEX World Music Fair in Budapest on October 24th 2015. They are ready to hit the road in 2016!
