Ilu Axe @ Plantation


Based in Bristol UK and Marseille France, Ilu Axé are one of Europe’s premier Blocos Afros (Afro-Brazilian street / carnival drumming groups). Their music and moves hail from Brazil’s original capital city, the magical and very special Salvador da Bahia, the birthplace of Samba. They mix the rhythms, dance and songs of Samba-Reggae, Samba de Roda (the original Samba found around Salvador), Afoxé, the African / Brazilian religious drumming, dance and songs of Candomblé and their own compositions, arrangements and choreography. This is funky North-East Brazilian style carnival music and dance!

Followed by Plantation resident DJ Andy Evid selecting the best Reggae, Dancehall, Hip Hop, R&B, funk, soul & more from 12 midnight.

Starts 10pm, £2 Entry after 9PM
