BaianaSystem + Flavia Coelho + Prince Fatty

BaianaSystem is one of Brazil’s biggest and baddest live acts. Coming straight out of Bahia, the group not only amplify sound, but also the essence of local traditions. Influenced by Jamaican sound systems, huge percussive bass lines merge with Afro-Latin rhythms such as Frevo, Samba-Reggae, Pagode, Groove Arrastado, Ijexá, Kuduro and Reggae to create a truly unique sound. Inseparable from their music, the band’s distinctive visuals add a further dimension to their live shows.

2017 saw the release of their second critically acclaimed studio album, Duas Cidades, with their track “Playsom” becoming a world-smashing hit due to its inclusion on the FIFA soundtrack! As at home on stage as they are on the streets, BaianaSystem are out to take Brazil’s carnival spirit to the world.

Since their first studio album release, BaianaSystem (2010), along with the EP Pirata (2013) which delivered the hit “Terapia”, BaianaSystem have performed worldwide at the New Orleans Jazz Festival, at the Global Fest in NY, at Fujirock (Japan), as well as gigs in Russia, China and France. In 2017 the group performed at the renowned Roskilde Festival in Denmark. In Brazil, they’ve been to almost every state capital, having played important festivals like Lollapalooza and Rock in Rio as well as making a huge impact at carnival in Salvador and São Paulo.

"In this moment the entire history of Salvador’s distinctive carnival reaches new heights, as Roberto Barreto’s Bahian guitar guides Marcelo Seco [bass], and Russo Passapusso [vocals] leads the throng - people as far as the eye can see." - Caetano Veloso

Flavia Coelho is a pure ray of sunshine, an open invitation to dance! Lyrical dancing over the flows of original riddims, Remixes and classics, from Roots Reggae to Cumbia and more …She has travelled many of the world’s roads. From Rio de Janeiro’s Favela ‘morros’ to the storied streets of Paris. This nomad feels at home wherever she’s made welcome.

They’ll be joined by the legendary Prince Fatty who’ll be warming the crowd up with their unstoppable brand of foot friendly reggae and beats.
