Kinky Afro is a brand new music project by two Italian Disc Jockeys, paying a musical homage to late 70's, rare groove, the golden age of Disco together with Italo Disco and Hi NRG as a passionate extra.
The couple plays also an Electro/Crossover DJ sideproject which has been appearing throughout Europe and Italy of course, but when it comes to Kinky Afro they are for low key, this typical old school attitude helps explaining why this international couple of DJ's prefers not to reveal identities. Does it mean they should be struggling for visibility now? Who cares.
Nonetheless, they want to target a difference audience, being far from those shortlived wonders, blatantly transient as only some clear sunny hours in Ireland can be.
Kinky Afro Disc Jockeys will probably show you the obvious, that is the Chic got one of the most impressive rhythm bars on Earth, there is more to Disco Music than the embarassing Village People and the Bee Gees, the Soul music gave lineguides over the best output in late 70's, the Incredible Bongo Band had virtually written what Stone Roses later called Fool's Gold, the Kraftwek influenced almost all of what you've heard electronic in the 80's and Italo Disco is nothing to do with Sabrina Salerno or some new wave guitars over echoing voices and woeful machine drums.
Should we mention who nowadays could beat Grace Jones' impossible charisma?

Jean Biche is a performance artist, graphic artist and musician who creates a unique theatrical universe of baroque and often disturbing images which challenge the viewer with unresolved questions of personal boundary and the significance of ritual.
His work specifically unseats rote notions of sacrifice, heartbreak and gender by combining pop references, legend and nostalgia in subversive an unexpected combinations, a process which has been said to resemble a medieval exorcism in its erasure of comfortable presumption and unforgettable enigmatic tableaux.
Jean Biche earned his Masters degree in Illustration at La Cambre in 2001, and takes inspiration in his work from such outsider artists as Leigh Bowery or Felix Gonzales-Torres.
Jean Biche has collaborated with Yves-Noël Genod, An Pierlé, Damien Jalet, Pierre Droulers, Laetitia Bica, Mademoiselle Jean, Dominique Thirion, and many more.
