Hallo everyone,

first, let me say hi, im new here in this forum & in the city!
I red a lot of things on this site, and i got a lot of good informations, thanks so far.

So here´s my first post & question:

Im a dj, i play caribbean & african music, with a strong focus on Soca (the Trini Carnival Music), but also Reggae, Dancehall, Calypso, and a lot of different african styles, mostly Nigerian & Ghanaian Music. I have a lot experience, i worked for a german radio station, and because i have a deep passion for what i do, of course i want to do it in Buenos Aires too.
Unfortunately, it seems like this music is not very popular here, i did not find any bar or club where they play this. I have to admit, my spanish is quite bad, since i just started to learn it two days ago, so there might be a lot of information in the web, i dont understand.

Can anybody recommend a bar, a club, or promoters, that might be interested in such music?

Thank you very much in advance,

Felix

Makena has AfroMama Jam once a week, Sundays, you should go there, and talk to the DJ. He will know where the scene is.
Its true, Cumbia is much more popular here, but there is a Reggae scene, including some reggae bands, and there is some caribbean music as well, there is a big columbian population here.

Every two weeks or so there's an open and free folk gathering in a park by the river in San Isidro. You should contact the organizers (a couple of them are fluent in english) for more information, next session (the last one was held last Sunday, Jan 31)

I was in the Peace Corp in Ghana in the 70's. HiLife, which was Ghana's R & R at the time, is still one of my favorite types of music.

FelixMonster....If you get something going, please post it here.

Ries....I will have to check out the AfroMama Jam one week. Thanks.

Look for their FB page (this site won't allow me to post link) "Folk hasta que se ponga el sol"

Thank you guys, i appreciate your help.
Also, i will give you a note if i get an opportunity @TomAtAlki, although you should not expect too much Highlife from me. Its a great music, but its very tricky to get the old hits today in proper quality. So i just have few Highlife Hits in my repertoire, playing maybe 1-3 a night. There are more Tunes in Hiplife / Azonto today, and off course, Nigerian Music kinda dominates the market (i do also prefer modern nigerian music).
Cheers.

this website has an unbelievable amount of obscure african music.
most is streamable online.
this guy spent years collecting original vinyl lps all over west africa, and ripping them to mp3.s
