Faena Art presents TabomBass by Vivian Caccuri, a sound system composed of stcaked speakers, similar to those used at street parties. Placed in front of them, lit candles move with the displaced air and dance to the rhythm of the deep sounds –basslines composed by artists from the city of Accra, who collaborated with Caccuri after her research in Ghana. Accra received groups of African-Brazilians after the Malê Revolt, a slave rebellion that took place in Salvador in 1835. To this day, their descendants are known as “Tabom”–because, not knowing the local languages, they answered all questions with ‘tá bom’ (roughly translated as ‘okay’). Caccuri takes this historical background, seeking to expand connections and meanings to consider Africa-America trajectory, proposing an encounter in which Miami based musicians and performers improvide based on the African sounds and, through this combination create a hybrid work of art.
