about

The Radio Diaspora duo made up of Rômulo Alexis (trumpet, flute, other wind instruments and vocals) and Wagner Ramos (drums and electronics) conjugates the sonorous verbs of the African diaspora through the experimentalism of Free Jazz and Free Improvisation, developing a dilation of the signs of black culture through zones of intensity, re-signifying the flow of information that marks the plurality of the afro-descendent musical experience.

Diaspora denotes a flexible and dynamic concept of cultural identity. It involves a transcultural consciousness and a sense of belonging that are anchored in human subjectivity. This mobile archipelago of belonging is generated through the accumulated experiences of all Afro-diasporic ancestry and its sonorous, vocal, poly-rhythmic, polyphonic codes that have spread throughout the world in a flow marked by expropriation, genocide, slavery and, above all, resistance and invention.

In a countercurrent to the monopolistic representation of white culture, Radio Diaspora works on material generated through the sonorous polyphony of black cultural heritage, sampling and amplifying references that are added as triggers of energetic approaches in relation to the diasporic epic of black culture. Rejecting submission to traditions and culture as domination, Radio Diaspora uses art as an instinctive force. Music is the weapon - a heavy force field and nucleus of representations and senses. It is a continuous intensity and overload through frequencies, resonances, convulsive and spasmodic flows that bring into play energies willing to exorcise all secular violence through noise.
