*Diaspora is the dispersion of a population from their native land (from Greek διασπορά, “scattering, dispersion”)
About the Music from a diasporic point of view. Recently, scholars have distinguished between different kinds of diaspora, based on its causes such as imperialism, trade or labor migrations, or by the kind of social coherence within the diaspora community and its ties to the ancestral lands. Some diaspora communities maintain strong political ties with their homeland. Other qualities that may be typical of many diasporas are thoughts of return, relationships with other communities in the diaspora, and lack of full assimilation into the host country.With the Tropical Diaspora Roots Sound we try to make reflections on a diasporic phenomenon in the Music. This refection show us that the whole Music we select in our events and all other movements connected to the tropical term come originally from Africa. All music styles at the and come directly from there or was reinvented in an African diaspora in other continents like south America, Carib or north America. Currently we experience the clash of all Diaspora in Europe where all people from all over the world can meet and share his own musical influences with other people. The result of this melting pot we call TROPICAL DIASPORA and fate, it seems, is not without a sense of irony that happens in Berlin at the YAAM. Unfortunately, no one can be told what the Tropical Diaspora is. You have to hear it for yourself!
