30.10 – Bixiga 70 (São Paulo/ Brazil) Album Release Konzert im YAAM Berlin

Kaum ein Afrobeat Projekt sorgt derzeit so für Furore wie das aus Sao Paulo kommende 10 köpfige Orchestra BIXIGA 70. Fans & Musikritiker*innen warten gleichermaßen gespannt auf das kommende und mittlerweile 4 Studioalbum Album „Quebra Cabeça“. Bereits mit der letzten Veröffentlichung „III“ begeisterte die Band Radiostationen, Dj’s, Jazz & Afrobeat Fans auf der ganzen Welt.

 

Energetisch und treibend, vertrackt und polyrhythmisch: Auch auf ihrem kommenden Album setzt die Instrumentalband Bixiga 70 ihre Suche nach einem eigenen, zeitgenössischen Ausdruck fort. Stand ihr Debütalbum noch ganz im Zeichen von Afrobeat, kamen beim dritten bereits weitere Einflüsse hinzu, Ethio Jazz eines Mulatu Astatke etwa oder Carimbó aus der Amazonas-Region.

Auf dem am 12.10.2018 erscheinenden Album „Quebra Cabeça“ (Glitterbeat Records) entwickelt die Band eine neue Komplexität. Die einzelnen Songs entwickeln sich zu einer Reise zwischen Amazonas & West Africa. Dabei greifen die immer wieder auf traditionelle Elemente brasilianischer Musik, Jazz und kontemporären Afrobeat zurück.

BIXIGA 70 (live)
Dienstag 30.10.2018
YAAM An der Schillingbrücke 3
10243 Berlin
