Word cannot describe how excited we are to welcome Bixiga 70 to the festival, hailing all the way from São Paulo, Brazil. Coming from diverse musical backgrounds, a meeting of musicians involved in the city’s avantgarde pop, jazz, dub and Brazilian scenes, results in the 10-piece set, trying to blur boundaries in space and time. With their genre-spanning mix of afro-beat, Guinean malinké, Brazilian candomblé, samba and cumbia, Bixiga 70 are a welcome addition to any party. These guys are among Brazil’s finest players, taking Fela Kuti’s afro-beat style to inventive, thrilling new heights. 3 words: dancing is mandatory!
