Vote for Arp Frique's 'Nos Magia' in Worldwide Awards


We are pleased to announce that Arp Frique's "Nos Magia" has been shortlisted for the Gilles Peterson Worldwide Awards! "Nos Magia" is featured on Arp Frique's debut EP (RH-STORE JAMS 011), due for release on December 18.





"Nos Magia" is a classic sounding, but unheard Cape Verdean funana song featuring the old skool Americo Brito on vocals by the Dutch Arp Frique aka Niels Nieuborg. Hailing from the city of Rotterdam, Niels has been actively involved in the Dutch live music scene for years, working with Cape Verdean & Surinamese musicians especially. After all these years, he finally presents his own true musical output.

The Worldwide Awards are an annual celebration of the leftfield underground; “They were set up to celebrate a side of the music scene that often gets ignored.” as Gilles puts it.
