Sena Dagadu presents her great songs with the support of the Irie Maffai members who will play on this night in a more sensible mood, than on a festival stage. The support this time the frenetic Spoek Mathambo. We offer a dinner with the concert at the price of 5000 forints altogether. The menu: Chard Holland style, Turkey breast stuffed with green asparagus and smoked ham with potatoes toasted in butter. Buy a combi ticket for 3000 HUF For Sena and Spoek Mathambo
The allround popular personality of Sena Dagadu is well-known almost to all people who have been to a Budapest night concert or a Hungarian festival, but she has been best known as the lead singer of the Irie Maffia band in spite of the fact that she had released a magnificent solo album in 2008 titled First time.
After three years she is ready with a new album that has been produced due to the call of a French label and features outrageously good songs that are going to be played for the very first time on this very night. Sena will be accompanied by the great musicians of the Irie Maffia band, who will this time play with less power and more sense, their smoky blues, soul and funk.
Johannesburg’s Spoek Mathambo (real name: Nthato Mokgata) first hotwired our world with a series of collaborative projects – Sweat X, Playdoe – that placed his smart, dirty vocals on top of electro-rap bangers that activated dancefloors across the globe. Things went darker and deeper with his 2010 debut album, Mshini Wam (translation: ‘bring me my machine’), a record which took Spoek’s love affair with South African culture and his coined ”township tech” as a starting point. As always, he pulled those influences in a direction all his own (think: a pitched-down wobble-house cover of Joy Divisions “She’s Lost Control”). Mathambo topped things off with a grip of visually thrilling videos depicting a fresh-to- death urban gothic vibe, not to mention months of touring across US, Europe, and South America.
Father Creeper took shape during that tour time. Mathambo got started doing hands-on audio production during long days on the road with Copenhagen-based musician CHLLNGR. They began with haunting lyrics about the conflict diamonds, penned by Mathambo’s wife Ana Rab (aka Gnucci Bananaa), fleshing out the verses into an epic, synth-driven post-dubstep heater. “Put Some Red On It” would become Father Creeper’s first single.
