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, Ginga Beat is all about discovering and sharing music with the open-mindedness it deserves. Every one-hour show under the “Inside Out” banner will include all the global Afro-Brazil-Lusophone connections heard on the streets of Lisbon, the International Affairs Office with the freshest international content, and the most relevant local musical upheavals with input from MC Maze with the northern connection (Oporto scene). Local techno DJ Gustavo Rodrigues is in charge of all things recording and editing. Straight outta Lisbon!
