With music as their common language, these 5 musicians make traditional instruments come alive as they masterfully mix electronic beats with looping field recordings from the urban and rural world. Their sound universe leaves no one indifferent and resonates right to the dancing bone.
Their story starts in November 2015, Niamey Niger, where they gathered to compose 27 musical pieces in 3 days for a new radio station... “shap shap” (quick and good!). Their creative energy pushed them to continue the adventure under the name Studio Shap Shap.
“Chateau 1,” their first album was created and auto- produced in the 45-degree heat under their rehearsal hut in April of 2016.
They simply show that there are no more apparent boundaries between the old, the new, the tradition and the modern times.
Their unique goal : make Africa be heard in a new and different way.
Nourished by their energy filled live shows and an ever changing world, their upcoming EP digs deeper into their musical world making everyone feel like a member of this unique and out of the norm family.
They have already shaken the stages of AfricaJarc (FR), La fête effrontée (FR), Rottotom (ESP), Esperanzah (BE) to name a few and are coming back for more on their November 2019 EU tour!
