Ginga Beat combines the hottest sounds from the past, present and future, plus interviews, lecture bits and news. Straight outta Lisbon.
Ginga Beat is a show that combines mixtape tradition, obsessive digging spirit and the use of sound as a raw material for art. From an ever-fresh selection of global club tunes and trends courtesy of record label honcho and music blogger Rui Miguel Abreu to a comprehensive update of what’s new in the Portuguese scene, to the latest kuduro mp3 cut to come out in Luanda presented by _(artist-name)DJ Mpula_, Ginga Beat is all about discovering and sharing music with the open-mindedness it deserves. Every one-hour show under the “Inside Out” inprint, is split up into three parts, with _(artist-name)Rui Miguel Abreu_ taking care of the International Affairs Office and fresh sounds that are emerging nationally, with undiscovered fresh tracks from Portugal and DJ Mpula of all Afro-Brazil-Lusophone connections. Cuts et al come courtesy of talented turntablist _(artist-name)DJ Ride_, while local techno jock Gustavo Rodrigues is in charge of all things recording and editing. Straight outta Lisbon!
