TrocaBrahma 07: July 26 – 29: London, Liverpool, Glasgow

 

* Brasilian psych-rock superstars Os Mutantes to play first-ever live shows in Scotland & Liverpool (plus rare London date): they’ll collaborate with Optimo on exclusive new music for TrocaBrahma.

 

* Also: exclusive live collaborations and brand-new material from Gruff Rhys, King Creosote, Bonde Do Role, Four Tet, Diplo, Ben Westbeech, Radioclit and many more at TrocaBrahma.

 

Brahma invites you to celebrate the spirit of Brasil this summer with TrocaBrahma.

 

TrocaBrahma 07 will synthesise the finest in established and emerging UK and Brasilian music talent for an incandescent series of must-see live shows, urban art and truly exclusive collaborations. It runs through London, Liverpool and Glasgow from July 26-29.

 

Converging a fiery cast of UK stars – including champion rhapsodist King Creosote, electronic alchemist Four Tet, wily Welsh pop warlock Gruff Rhys (Super Furry Animals), global groove maharishi Gilles Peterson, clamouring party-starters Optimo and urban jungle wunderkind Ben Westbeech; and a blazing range of Brasilian luminaries – such as psych-rock behemoths Os Mutantes, incendiary genre-benders Bonde do Role, counter-cultural superstar Tony da Gatorra, exquisite pop collective Open Field Church, celestial samba bard Romulo Froes, (and Favela sonic archivist Diplo), TrocaBrahma 07 is set to deliver an exhilarating culture jam of UK and Brasilian talent.

 

Much of the carnival's fruit will be borne from the TrocaBrahma Exchange: a project during which the aforementioned UK acts will visit Brasil in May to engage and create with like minded – and unlikely – indigenous counterparts.

 

Thus, expect an impassioned alliance of oddball arias and post-punk clatter from Gruff Rhys meets Tony da Gatorra; kaleidoscopic ghetto-pop chaos from Bonde do Role meet Radioclit / Amanda Blank; sublime Scottish folk and balmy bossa nova from King Creosote meets Romulo Froes; electronic wizardry and choral serenades from Four Tet meets Open Field Church; downtown samba-jazz and inner-city soul from Tita Lima meets Ben Westbeech; and ground-breaking mayhem from Tropicalia lodestars Os Mutantes with club-land tearaways Optimo.

 

All of the participating artists (full details below) will re-converge in the UK to perform their unique collaborations live for the first time at TrocaBrahma. All artists will also perform full live solo sets during July’s chromatic festivities.

 

TrocaBrahma is now an annual event and a vital highlight on the global music calendar.

 

TrocaBrahma continues Brahma’s celebration of Brasilian art and music.
