    Default Shanty House - a new night (London) starts Fri 3rd November 06

    Shanty House - Friday 3rd November 2006

    Shanty House brings a range of global urban music to the Whitechapel – from Baile Funk emanating from Brazilian favelas, to Kwaito the house-influenced sounds of South African townships and Desi, fusing traditional Indian music with Bhangra, hip hop, garage and reggae; from the Hip-Hop of the Deep South Crunk, to Jamaica’s dancehall and London’s Grime.

    The opening night will include a performances from Tetine, a Soul Jazz signed Brazilian duo fusing baile funk with electroclash. DJs Woebot, Stelfox, Bun-u playing the best in crunk, grime, desi, baile funk, reggaeton, dancehall and hyphy. The night will kick off with a special screening of Resistencia: Hip Hop in Colombia, followed by a Q&A with Director Tom Feiling.

    Resistencia: Hip-Hop in ColombiaDirector: Tom Feiling, 51 min, UK, 2002
    Resistencia offers a rare look at the Hip-Hop street subculture in civil war-torn Colombia, while at the same time exploring how traditional Latino music is being infiltrated by rap. Following a summer in the lives of some of Colombia's finest rappers, DJs and break-dancers, the film explores how young Colombians feel about the crisis afflicting their country and the impact it has on their lives. Caught between left wing guerillas and right wing paramilitaries, these youths turn to rap as a way to express their points of view on the realities forced upon them by long-running violence, cultural crisis and the global cocaine trade. Youthful and entertaining, but also angry and enlightening, Resistencia bears witness to how the Hip-Hop culture has a major impact far from the "bling bling" of the U.S. music industry.

    Tetine
    Eliete Mejorado and Bruno Verner, both native Brazilians who have since relocated to London, created Tetine in São Paulo in 1995 by combining various cultural and artistic currents. Lying at the intersection of performance art, video, and dirty electronica, a Tetine concert comes off as a Latin American version of Fischerspooner, with the raw sounds of baile funk infusing the squelchy beats.

    Tetine has also increasingly incorporated the aggressive beats of baile funk into their own more rock-oriented music, which Verner dubs "punk carioca" ... Tetine's forthcoming album, L.I.C.K My Favela (on Slum Dunk Records), draws even more heavily from baile.

    DJs Woebot, Stelfox and Bun-UHave been DJing a variety of musics at London venues and on radio, with Woebot and Stelfox also making huge contributions to discourse through printed and web-based media.

    Hah - Bruno and Eli are extremely fun (and a bit crazy). Last time I saw them, Eli took her tshirt off whilst DJing and then proceeded to whip up a crowd of very straight looking Brazilian expat ladies into some extremely filthy on-stage dancing.

    Will try and make it down...

    part of me is thinking of going to this as my goodbye bash but part of me thinks it looks a bit academic. what sort of party starts with a lecture? what sort of party takes place in an art gallery?
    my mates will gun me if its shit. so let me know how partyish its going to be. can you smoke weed there? is there a bar? how worthy will it be? will i be the only person tere under the age of 30?

    I dunno Luka is the honest answer, you're quite welcome to come down and party hard...but as I found when we did Dirty Canvas down there was that the 11.30 finish (on a Friday) precludes it from being any sort of proper full-on club night. I'd say it'd something stimulating and enjoyable to do before either moving on for more or when not having a mad one. And it's just a questions and answer session with the film's Director, no lectures...so you can tell him his film was swag or shower. Where are you going?

    Pull up to the bumper baby…

    A final push on this one

    Your chance to catch Dissensus poster boys Woebot* and Stelfox in action, together with a screening of a documentary about Colombian hip hop in the gallery’s auditorium (starting at 8.00pm) and performance from the audacious Brazilian duo Tetine. Music will be a mash up of crunk, desi, grime, baile funk, hyphy and dancehall.

    *well I've ordered the t-shirt
