THE CURATOR

World music is dead. Its been a false and ridiculous genre label from the get go. Local music, on the other hand, is thriving. Whether it falls under folk, ghetto, or a sub-culture, one thing is for certain: the popularity and significance of any country's street music is ever strong; from french suburbs to Cabo Verde, Bamako to Rio, Kingston to Atlanta, and back to Kinshasa.

Since 2006, Secousse broadcasts the cream of local hits worldwide, via a web-radio, mixtapes, edits, parties and its record label. The curator in chief is Etienne Tron, a french Dj and producer who achieved international fame through many adventures like the afropop band The Very Best or Le Comptoir Général, a Parisian cultural centre dedicated to creativity that has been marginalized.
