Upon the walled corridors of the Brazilian hall of fame forever hangs the dreadlocked Djavan, next to his friends Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Chico Buarque and Milton Nascimento.
With a European tour set for 2019, his first official visit to the UK in over a decade, audiences young and old will be treated to an artist whose unique songwriting genius has built him a reputation for continuously redefining Brazil's 'music of the people' also known as MPB (Música Popular Brasileira).
Hailing from Maceio in the north of Brazil and with a recording career that started proper in 1976 and continues in full force (his latest album Vesuvio was released in November 2018), Djavan's incredible sense of poecism and intelligence, both lyrically and musically has won him admirers like Quincy Jones, Paco De Lucia and Roberta Flack.
An artist in the truest sense and a creative powerhouse, it's to Djavan that so many musicians and artists across the globe, from the street to the stage, owe their respects - many of his song lyrics and tunes are sung like second nature by Brazilians such as 'Flor de Lis' and 'Meu bem Querer'.
DJ D.Vyzor will be at the turntables setting the atmosphere for the evening.
