Scúru Fitchádu [Noir profond en créole capverdien]

Rituel de libération de l’esclavage, Scúru Fitchádu n’est pas facile, il est rage et combat. C’est un chemin jamais parcouru auparavant, avec les nouveaux langages musicaux rencontrant sans pudeur les traditions du Funaná cap-verdien, sous la forme d’une locomotive furieuse d’esthétique punk. Scúru Fitchádu est un voyage agité, entre Funaná en colère et accélération du rythme cardiaque.

Scúru Fitchádu [Deep Dark in Cape Verdean creole]

A ritual of liberation from slavery, Scúru Fitchádu is not easy, it is rage and combat. It's a path never travelled before, with new musical languages meeting without shame the traditions of Cape Verdean Funaná, in the form of a furious locomotive of punk aesthetics. Scúru Fitchádu is an agitated journey, between angry Funaná and an accelerated heartbeat.

CARAMBOLAGE@LE FLORIDA - - - - - - - Scúru Fitchádu <> Artús

"Initié par le Florida, le Carambolage est un choc culturel, une aventure humaine, un défi artistique qui, sans filtre ni filet, vient percuter les frontières posées par la norme et les certitudes ". Florent BENETEAU - SMAC Le Florida

"Nous n'avons pas de respect emblématique et solennel de nos cultures c'est ce qui nous permet de résister à la standardisation des formes, à la banalisation des esthétiques. Ne pas se diluer mais s'entrechoquer pour s'hybrider, ainsi nous pouvons approcher la poétique de la création et espérer l'imprévisible". Romain Baudoin - Artús

"Création sans frontières ni barrières. C'est une liberté totale qui va au-delà de toute étiquette, d'être conscient et incisif, d'être brut et massif. C'est la voie que nous avons choisie et que nous nous efforçons de suivre". 
Marcus Veiga - Scúru Fitchádu

Press Extracts 2020

The Quietus Extract, February 10, 2020 
"Consequently, good stuff is lapped up indiscriminately here, irrespective of hype. We can point to the audience losing its mind at a whirlwind gig given by incredible Cape Verdean electro punks Scúru Fitchádu; who torched Metelkova’s Channel Zero with a mind-melting fire kindled by jungle, electro and punk and traditional folk." - Richard Foster

Ravnododna Extract, February 09, 2020  "What I would put under the avant-garde exclamation mark of the ugliest musical future coming from the south is certainly Scuru Fitchadu - a Cape Verdean Creoleac who performs a music called electro funana punk. (...) Scuru Fitchadu is stationed in Portugal, so it may not be a problem to bring him to our clubs and festivals. I think this trio would also ignite fans and metalheads and hipsters, as was the case at the Ljubljana club on Friday, where everything culminated in general enthusiasm." - Zoran Stajčić 

Observador Extract, January 23, 2020 
Bad thing is being guerrilla and not being able to dance at the same time. That's right. But in Scúru Fitchádu it is possible to raise your arm and shake your hip, be protesting and be dancing. That's why Un Kuza Runhu [Creole translation: "a bad thing"] is almost an impossibility. This is "un kuza runhu", not by a long shot. I mean, it is, it ends up being, it's bad for its viscerality, for the formal violence, for the imperfect symbiosis between punk/hardcore/metal and funana, with a lot of electronics in the middle. But if being bad is being abrasive in this way, then you almost feel like saying "beat up". Or rather: Scúru Fitchádu up [...]

Ípsilon Magazine Extract, January 17, 2020  [...] The album Un Kuzu Runhu (in Portuguese, Uma Coisa Ruim), just from launch, which follows the EP of the same name which revealed it in 2016, contains the answer. No, Marcus Veiga, you have not adorned its sound. It's still remarkably indomitable, stirring, vociferous from the guts, between angry rhythms aroused by funana, by distorted bass lines and with a guttural voice that throws words at us in Creole. "I haven't given up that sonority, I've kept it rough and crudely, but this one ends because it's a more objective record," he says. " [...]
