Tcheka to grace HIFA

Tcheka
Harare International Festival of the Arts (HIFA) is a 6-day annual festival and workshop programme that showcases the very best of local, regional and international arts and culture in a comprehensive festival programme of theatre, dance, music, circus, street performance, fashion, spoken word and visual arts.

Tcheka, born Manuel Lopes Andrade in a small remote spot on the island of Santiago, Cape Verde, on 20 July 1973, has created a unique and exquisite style that is a testament to the global influences he has embraced.

His essence is impossible to grasp, let alone pin down, he is neither modernist nor traditionalist and his music resists any easy categorization or comparison, while referencing multiple genres from Cape Verde (batuku, funaná, finason, tabanka, morna and coladera), Tcheka’s music is also a busy intersection of Brazilian and African pop, traditional forms, folk, jazz, blues, rock, literature, anthropology and film.

It is never just Cape Verdean, and it’s never just music, but it’s always captivating.
