about

Lisbon is a puzzle of images, a labyrinth of sounds, a great landscape for the most improbable encounters, a European capital filled with Africa. This is the starting point for Meu Kamba Três, Rocky Marsiano’s seventh album.
The heavily sample-based production methods that were so present in the sounds of previously released Meu Kamba (2014) and Meu Kamba Vol. Dois (2016) are now naturally replaced and upgraded by his beatsmith touch with a fresh approach.

Meu Kamba Três was recorded between Lisbon and Luanda, Amsterdam and Maputo, featuring collaborations with artists such as Sagaz, Selma Uamusse (Mozambique), Prince Wadada (Angola), Milton Gulli (Mozambique) and Karlon and instrumentalists such as the percussion master Toni and Nelson da Costa (veteran guitar player from Guiné-Bissau who has played for many Guinean and Cape Verdean bands in the 80s and 90s). Also featuring on the album is Sr Alfaiate, one of Portugal’s most notorious scratch DJs.

With Lisbon’s very own vibes as a source of main inspiration – where semba and funana, samba, kuduro and kizomba mix with hip-hop, fado, soul and house into hybrid musical forms that make us travel to the past and to the future – Meu Kamba Três is an ambitious album by Rocky Marsiano and to that effect he has brought forward all of his past as a hip-hop head, producer, DJ, MC and above all a rhythm lover. So that he could musically transmit the sense of community that has always been so present throughout his 20+ year long career into new tracks for the dancefloor.

From Lisbon. From Africa. From the World.
