For the night of April 24, at 9:30 p.m., in which the 45th anniversary of the Carnation Revolution is celebrated in Portugal, Cine-Teatro Louletano has scheduled a unique and very special concert that brings together son and father: Sam The Kid (with World Second) and Napoleon Mira (with Sickonce).
The proposal to join together in this symbolic occasion and on the same stage, in Loulé, poets of different generations and who have in common ties of kinship, as is the case of Samuel Mira (Sam The Kid) and Napoleon Mira, is closely linked to an attention (housing, education, economy, religion, conviviality / conflict between groups, violence), which is, moreover, an appanage of the universes of hip-hop and of a culture of musical intervention centered on the figure of the singer-songwriter, during the dictatorial period and extended beyond the Carnation Revolution.
Known as a style of music with its own subculture, hip-hop is, above all, an artistic street manifestation that emerged in the 70s of the last century, a little throughout the world and also in Portugal, with its own rules of clothing, language, themes, behaviors and associated rap, being this synonym of rhythm and poetry.
The partnership between Sam The Kid and Mundo Segundo comes from afar, and has always been modeled on stage and in studios. Between the two there is a long history of dedication to the cause of rhymes and beats. In secret, both have cooked an album made two voices and four hands, of which are already known four themes, which promises to stay for the history of national hip hop and that is certainly one of the most awaited ever. World is the rudder of the collective "Dealema," one of the most committed members of the movement that spread from south to north and became lingua franca on the streets. With his group always recorded some of the most precious pieces of the national hip hop puzzle, including the much applauded Soul Dawn. Sam The Kid is certainly one of the strongest symbols that this culture has generated in Portugal. Unsurpassed in the art of rhymes – such as Between 1999 (1999) and Over (all) 2002, true classics, prove beyond doubt – Samuel Mira also did school at MPC.
As for Napoleão Mira was born in Entrada, county of Castro Verde, in 1956. He lives in the Algarve, in Lagoa, since 1983. He founded, directed and collaborated in several magazines and newspapers. In the musical field he signed "Pratica (mind)" and "Slides – Portraits of the White City" to the acclaimed Practica (mind) disc of Sam The Kid, his son. Also with this created and interpreted, for the first Festival Silêncio !, the show "Words Nossas". He has collaborated in several recordings, notably with Dino & The Soulmotion, Ore Black, Sir Scratch and the project "Hip Hop Pessoa". Napoleon Mira published several books, among them chronicles, travel reports, novels. In recent years, he has created with the collective Reflect (Pedro Pinto / Kimahera) and, more recently, with the project "Grafonola Voadora" (with Luis Galrito and João Espada) several formats around the spoken word and its crosses with sung poetry and instrumental music.
The show has the estimated duration of 75 minutes with the associated price per person of 12 euros (or 10 euros for over 65 and under 30 years) with applicable Amigo Card, being advised to people over 12 years.
