RADIO FAVELA at Glastonbury 2011

RADIO FAVELA strikes again!

“Not content with monthly forays up to the SOAS RADIO studios, Madera & Gringo decided an altogether more challenging expedition was required to celebrate mid summer.

So, on the invitation of the sublime CLUB DADA and SHANGRI LA crews at the GLASTONBURY FESTIVAL, and with the financial help from THE FRENCH MUSIC BUREAU, off they traipsed into the English countryside with FIVE of France’s top dance/electro/funk bands to rock the wellies off an unsuspecting festival crowd.

Merci DISCODEINE, NAIVE NEW BEATERS, PONY PONY RUN RUN, DEBRUIT and SYSTEM 7!

You helped us to disprove John Lennon’s quote that ‘French Rock tastes like English Wine!’

And here is the recording to prove it, thanks to intrepid SOAS RADIO reporters SETH & VIOLETA!”
