Bixiga 70 Brasil
Drawn from São Paulo's avant-garde, pop, jazz, dub and Brazilian music scenes.
Named after the multi-cultural neighbourhood in São Paulo from where they hail, the ten-piece Bixiga 70 are drawn from the city’s avant-garde, pop, jazz, dub and Brazilian music scenes.
Taking Fela Kuti’s Afrika 70 band as a launch pad in name and spirit, their horn-driven mix of Afrobeat, cumbia and Brazilian rhythms blurs boundaries in space and time into an irresistible global dance fusion. The band made its recording debut in 2011 and Bixiga 70’s most recent album III was described by one reviewer as the soundtrack to “a wild party like no other; picture a Brazilian carnival and then multiply it by ten.”https://www.bixiga70.com.br
