As 2016 is heading for its final weeks we can’t help but feeling really tired of it. It took us BOWIE and PRINCE, gave us Trump, Brexit and a rise of right-wing populism instead. Can we just draw a giant freakin’ final stroke under these past months and hope for the best in 2017? And maybe… just maybe, we can all actively get ourselves together and work more actively on a better future for all of us.
Everybody needs to contribute in any field and of course, music plays a crucial part here. German kraut/synth three-piece SEA MOYA is on board in the form of a special NBHAP Guestmix called C’est Øne Wørld. And just like the sound of the band itself – a psychedelic mixture that is influenced by everything from RADIOHEAD to BRIAN ENO and CAN – their selection speaks the only universal language there is: music! Elias of SEA MOYA produced a mixtape that is all about cultures, positivity and the overall picture. In his own words:
‘C’est Øne Wørld means like: We’re all in this together. Especially in times like these it’s more important than ever to find a language which everyone understands. For me that’s music and I guess I’m not the only one feeling like that, otherwise music wouldn’t play such an important part in all the different cultures around the globe.
Tap-dance sneakers/Jive sandals all shiny? Then let’s go on a trip and listen to some sweet disco from Trinidad & Tobago, Afrobeat from Nigeria, Congolese Funk, Moroccan/British experimental something!! It’s all connected and so are we.’
