Irineu Nogueira is a Brazilian who has been living in London for the last 5 years. He has been exploring paths to express his background in Afro Brazilian Dance and Orixás through cross-discipline experiences such as opera, theatre, musicals, cinema and circus, which transformed him into a complete artist.
Back in Brazil, Irineu developed a respectful reputation in the field, from which resulted several jobs worldwide including Korea, Israel, Senegal, Guinea, France, Canada. In addition he also teaches masterclasses in Capoeira throughout the world.
Amongst many other projects that he directs, co-creates and produces, Abieié (rebirth, in the Yorubá language) is currently his main project, with which he dreams out loud and he aims to present Afro Brazilian culture through the qualities of contemporary dance in an active, creative and highly energetic way which directly reflects his personality as an artist.
His latest works are Chaos Art Group – an Abieié project by Irineu Afro-Brazilian dance students; Cria da Casa productions, a production agency that aims to promote traditional Brazilian Culture throughout the world; Bloco Serafina, a Brazilian proposal to promote cultural afro-roots from Brazil with Carnival beats.
Finally, as a visionary in continual search for self-improvement he is currently studying a masters degree in Performance, Design and Practice at Central Saint Martins, London.This performance has the support of Guidehall School and UAL Central Saint Martins.
Abdoulaye Samb is a guitarist, singer and composer from Senegal. His original music is inspired by Fula and Mandinka cultures and his distinctive musical style has grown out of his travels, collaborations and researches in Africa and Europe. Abdoulaye plays a truly remarkable Senegalese blues, which draws on elements of the rich Fula tradition interwoven with Rumba, Mbalax, Afro-Latin and deep blues. He has played with many great artists and groups such as Assane Mboup, Abdou Diop, Salam Diallo, Daby Balde, Abou Thiouballo and Baaba Maal. He will be performing at TEDxEuston as a solo and promises to provide a wonderfully intimate experience of African/Senegalese music.
