SisBis with Giovanna (September ’17)
Written by Josh Aitman on 3rd October 2017
Sicilian sommelier Giovanna is the mastermind behind SisBis, and resident at some of the Sheikh Yerbouti’s infamous warehouse parties. Her first foray into MDR showcases a broad sweep of afrobeat, MPB, disco and Senegalese hip-hop.
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 warmed up our dancing feet for the Liverpool debut of Brilliant Corners’ Donna Leake. Having developed a little bit of a girl crush having seen her play in Milan, SisBis decided to ship out Leake’s precocious vinyl-spinning talent to Buyers Club. Expect danceable afrobeat, disco and electro fusions.
