SisBis with Giovanna (October ’17)
Written by Josh Aitman on 13th November 2017
Sicilian sommelier Giovanna is the mastermind behind SisBis, and resident at some of the Sheikh Yerbouti’s infamous warehouse parties. Her second appearance on MDR showcases a broad sweep of afrobeat, African disco and jazz ahead of Kinkajou at Buyers Club.
Having learned English from Scousers and dancing from ‘Paris is Burning’, Giovanna serves up high tempo Brazilian, disco, afrobeat and hip-hop to rooms of Liverpool’s shameless and fierce dancers on the regular. Concerned by the lack of Janet Jackson on local setlist, she set about creating SisBis. SisBis presents their brand new party hosted out of Buyers Club that is produced, designed and DJed by woman but welcome to groovy dancers of any and all genders.
This particular show showcases Giovanna’s wider selections ahead of her appearance at Anti Social Jazz Club’s Japanese Pop-Up Jazz Cafe at Buyers Club. Expect afrobeat, jazz, disco and many other interesting fusions. Be sure to hit attending on the next SisBis party with Nabihah Iqbal AKA Throwing Shade in January…
