This is a fiction based on two characters: Iko, played by rapper and activist Ikonoklasta (aka Luaty Beirão) and Coqwe, played by Pedro Coquenão (aka Batida). IKOQWE found field recordings made in the 1950s in remote parts of Angola, then deciding to add an old rhythm box, dance, words and illustrations to the reels of ethnomusicologist Hugh Tracey. They say that their beats are as basic as the themes of their music: inequities, identities, migrations, poorly told history, neo-colonialism. They speak of complicities, love and utopia. The videoclip for their first single "VaiVai" (2020) won awards and their latest single "Pele" was released in January this year by the Crammed Discs record label.
