Grande Anganga Muquixe
Audio, 3 min
ANGANGA’s proposal is to reinterpret the vissungos (songs of African heritage in Brazil) using abstract sounds from “noise music”, drone, electronic music, “field recordings”, tape loops, instruments and processed objects of concrete music and harmonies from synthesizers. Interpretations full of layers, textures, changes in volume, dynamics, timbres, harmony of the synths, streams of sounds mixed with the voice of Juçara Marçal.
Juçara Marçal (Duque de Caxias, RJ, Brazil / 1962) is a brazilian singer. She lives in São Paulo. Member of the band Metá Metá, her album ENCARNADO was considered “the best album of 2014” by APCA (Paulista Association of Art Critics) and “best music album shared” in the Multishow Award.
