Tuesday night, L.A. RECORD welcomes guest DJ from Ghana BBRAVE to the FEVER party at Los Globos. Here’s something to warm your whistle with for now, recorded live in Amsterdam a few weeks ago.
Although his roots are in Paris and Los Angeles, Benjamin Lebrave, aka BBRAVE, claims his heart lives somewhere between Angola and Ghana. He’s traveled the world from point to point DJing sets of African club music, and through his record label, Akwaaba Music, established in 2008, BBRAVE has released music by over 70 recording artists from 15 African nations. As a DJ, BBRAVE mashes together the best dancefloor music from Africa, including kuduro, coupe decal, kwaito, and kwassa house, hipline, gbema and soukous. He throws in some tropical sounds to boot.
