This night will have a much different sound than last time’s cumbia clash. Expect to get some fresh baile funk electro & tecnobrega live action from Brasil and shaking afrobeat funk and hiphop from Tanzania & Kenya!
João Brasil hails from Rio de Janeiro, but lives in London since a few months. He plays live electronically sampled music from Brasil; baile funk (Rio style hiphop electro), tecnobrega (dancepop from Brasil do Norte) and cut up ‘montagems’ of various Brazilian styles.
Check João’s music & viddy’s!:
Pata Potea are an afrobeat band from Tanzania & Kenya. They play a mix of Swahili hiphop and Eastern African *Benga* style, which is all about funky guitar play and heavy drums. They bring acrobatic dancers with them who will peform some amazing tricks on the dancefloor. Pure music for some serious shaking!
The Rebel Up! DJ & VJ crew will play their global sounds and colourful visuals in a hefty mishmash. All global styles in tropical or folky spheres, always without borders! We also get joined by Smartin of the good local Elephant Soundsystemhttp://elephantsoundsystem.blogspot.com crew & Fuerza nights. He’ll play a hefty afrolatino mix of everything tropical; mestizo, samba, afrobeat and more.
On our nights, we always find it important to create global awareness and support development projects and charities. We have selected Brazilian organisation IBISS, who do street projects in the Rio area. We’ll go around with a collection box or you can donate at the door!
