Oui Madame! This is the first of three special VIVE LA FRANCE gigs in 2011 at Rich Mix, featuring “la creme de la creme” of brand new genre smashing live French music. In partnership with the French Music Export Office, Eurostar and Ricard, the “Vive La France” series of gigs launched in early 2010 at Favela Chic in Shoreditch London. A special edition was held at Glastonbury in June 2010 and February 2011 RichMix sees a similarly special edition saluted into existence. Every month Vive la France at Favela Chic has brought you incredibly talented guest performers from the beautiful country of Camembert. For this special occasion, the oh-so-bizarre and divine acts Le KKC Orchestra and La Caravane Passe, head to RichMix for something quite extraordinary.
You can expect sounds of gypsy, drum and bass, vintage swing and sweet sweet rock, hip hop and baile funk.
La Caravane Passe
With roots steeped in Eastern Europe, Toma Feterman gathered a crew together who are set to play the best in Balkan beats, Fiscorn harmonies and a mixture of gypsy rock and cabaret. These guys are pioneers in a world where new music is a rarity and originality a pleasant surprise. Having been a massive hit at The Secret Garden Party last summer, you can well believe they’re a retro, futuristic trip to the moon…and France…and Eastern Europe…and now, London.
Le KKC Orchestra
Le KKC is about all things electronica, hip hop and swing. Recently featuring alongside The Correspondents at Favela Chic’s birthday party, the English embraced any lack of understanding thanks to the universal language of great music. Seriously fun vibe – feel good – dance easy – party hard.
Not only is Chris Tofu the man responsible for music in the infamous Shangri La zone, but also all divine mayhem across leftfield tents at countless UK festivals. Heading to Rich Mix, he’s set to spin the best in dance worthy grooves electro, vintage and swing.
Gringo da Parada
Co-founder of the eclectic Favela Chic, Gringo da Parada, spins a set reflecting both the chaotic and harmonious. Bringing you a kaleidoscope of musical colours of the purest tradition from French chanson to Brasilian baile funk.
