Preview: BaianaSystem + Flavia Coelho + Prince Fatty DJ-set @ Village Underground (London; Tuesday 31st July 2018)  

Baiana

To call BaianaSystem a band would be diminutive. The Salvador de Bahia project is one of the most forward-looking, experimental and inventive names in the Brazilian cultural scene, defying genres and going even beyond music borders, extending its creativity to visuals, lights and dance.

That’s why to attend one of their shows transcends the auditory experience. There’s no doubt you will enjoy and dance to their sound, which brings together Afro-Brazilian tradition and guitarra baiana (bahian guitar), funk carioca, electronic beats and Jamaican up-tempo mellow vibes, but you will also be blown away by the visionary video and light show.

BaianaSystem are the triumph of artistic crossbreeding and you’ll have a rare opportunity to celebrate them on the last day of July, when they’ll finally visit London (yes, you’ve read right, they’ve never performed in the British capital before) for an unmissable show at Village Underground.

To make things even more out of the ordinary, the event organisers (Movimientos and Mama Sound) have enriched the line-up with another extravagant and talented Brazilian artist, Flavia Coelho, and out-and-out UK reggae & dub authority Prince Fatty.

Salute July with an artful bang and welcome August with quintessentially Afro-Brazilian baiana sounds.

This latest instalment from Prince Fatty boasts a full-length album deep in dub, packed with collaborations, that is characteristically catchy. ‘Two Timer’ featuring Cornell Campbell and Tippa Irie, the intro track, is classic, from the brilliant opening dub samples to the recognisable vocals of Tippa Irie. It’s smooth, relaxed, and…
