Made in Berlin at Cargo Bar
Presented by the Goethe-Institut, the brothers Paco Mendoza and Don Caramelo have long ceased to be an insider’s tip: Dancehall-Ragga, Roots Reggae, Latinbeat, Hip Hop or relaxed ballads, Raggabund explores different musical genres and stands for energetic shows. Having toured California, Mexico, Guatemala and Peru, Raggabund already gained international recognition.
Singing sometimes in German, sometimes in English and sometimes in Spanish, the German duo with Latin American roots covers a wide spectrum of languages in their music. In their texts, they take up a stance on political and social issues, but also make space for universal themes such as zest of life, love or desire, providing the right mixture of social commentary and entertainment.
Taking things into the early hours will be DJ Metro Tokyo aka Philipp Grefer, who has DJ’d around the globe with such luminaries as Peter Hook (New Order / Joy Division) and Nick Zinner (Yeah Yeah Yeahs). Local support to be announced soon.
