SCURU FITCHÁDU, PSYCHEDELIC CACHUPA AND ANA RITA ANTÓNIO
Dark Room, Hot Pot
Dark Room, Hot Pot is a project that brings together three creators who, at different times, crossed one of the greatest national creative hubs par excellence — Caldas da Rainha. Together, they propose for the TBA an atmosphere of opposing forms that attract each other through poetry, violence and symbolic images. Melody and bravery that reveal a dexterity in the manipulation of psychedelic and punk forms, intersecting with morna, coladera and funaná.
Psychedelic Cachupa and Scúru Fitchádu are partners above all. And they are representative exponents of the Cape Verdean 1980s generation. Lula’s is from Mindelo to the core – he was a teenager in a São Vicente with a taste of Seattle, against the virtuoso morna and with an electric guitar in his hands. Scúru is an Afro-descendant created between the social dichotomy of Anglo-Saxon distortion and the percussive lines of Africa. From his mental archive of references and experiences, he embodies a visceral attitude under an Afro-futurist and urban base in catharsis. This complicity is joined by Ana Rita António, a visual artist, who has proven herself indoors and out, and whose work oscillates between the visual arts and design in a sagacious questioning of the functionality of objects. An essential figure that closes this triangle with an inspiring and disruptive visual presence.
