AS MALIK & THE TRIBE
Coming from various musical horizons, The Tribe’s musicians play with their eclecticism. Soul, funk, pop, groove and reggae, every single one of them managed to implement their background into their music and this original sound.
The band, active since 2009, is an interesting mix of a warm soulful voice on top of a strong and powerful rhythm section, all of this seasoned with catchy guitar "gimmicks" and nowadays coated with an additional keyboard.Among them, their charismatic singer "As Malick" is well known in Senegal (album "Bénéne vibes" best solo album at Hip Hop Awards) for his distinguishable voice and his mesmerizing frontman skills.
After the release of the first album "Trip" in 2010, an EP "Hope" was launched in 2012. Today, the group confirms its musical richness by releasing their third EP "Life Time". But it is on stage that the group has established itself. Roaming between an electric formula to acoustic pieces, friendliness is well established: communication with the public, catchy choruses, The Tribe scored several hundred concerts, many television broadcasts Live video clips and multiple radio airplay, up to ensure the first part of Keziah Jones.
So for the first gig of this Summer Serie, we have organised a unique line up for tonight. Now don't worry, these great musicians from very different backgrounds will gather up for our biggest pleasure and fill up the place with nice warm and groovy summer tunes, party is on!!!

C4 Trío is a music ensemble formed by Jorge Glem, Hector Molina and Edward Ramírez. They never thought that, as individuals, competing in the “Siembra del Cuatro” contest, would result in a unique and now celebrated, collaboration as three “cuatro” players. Once agreed and the ensemble set up they embarked into a new and ambitious music project: making music with same instrument times three.
In 2006 they work on their first album C4 Trío produced by one of the biggest and best international interpreter of the Venezuelan’s traditional music: Aquiles Báez. This first album included the collaboration of Aquiles Báez himself and other great exponents of folk music in Venezuela like Serenata Guayanesa, Rafael ”El Pollo” Brito, Marina Bravo and Adolfo Herrera among others. In a very short period their first album obtains a Golden Disc.

- The Venezuela Sounds Festival, USA
- In England at the Salisbury International Art Festival
- The Bolivar Hall in London
- The BPC Berklee College of Music in the USA
- Music Festivals in Uruguay, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico and Canada.
In 2009 C4 Trío sees the release of their new album “Entre Manos” and that same year Rodner Padilla, who had already made an individual successful career, becomes a member of the band.
In 2011 C4 Trío wins the award at the 43rd “Torneo Internacional del Joropo” (the international contest for the folk music style (Joropo) that is traditionally played with a cuatro instrument).
Their outstanding career is also recognised by the award “Premio Municipal de las Artes Aquiles Nazóa” a very important local award in the arts, given in the city of Caracas, Venezuela.
In 2012 they released their 3rd album “Gualberto + C4” in collaboration with the acclaimed folk musician Gualberto Ibarreto.
Later in 2013 they are recognised with three Pepsi Music Awards and are also nominated for the Latin Grammy awards for “Best Folk Album”.
They continue to amaze, impress and delight their audiences around the world and in 2014, after much hard work, released a new album “De repente” together with Rafael “Pollo” Brito.
The ensemble and their album obtained a massive seven Pepsi Music Awards, including:
- Best Artist of the Year
- Best Album of the Year
- Best Artist Collaboration of the Year
- Best Venezuelan Vocal Disc
- Best Venezuelan Root Vocal Music
- Best Venezuelan “Gaita” Song: El Tresillo

The same year they were awarded a Latin Grammy for ”Best Engineered Album”.
In 2014 Gustavo Marquez becomes the new bassist of the band.
In 2015 the band celebrated their 10th year lifework with the release of a special DVD compilation together with the all times Venezuelan musicians.
