Since i’m going to be in Brazil for over 6 weeks (!!!) I thought i’d take this opportunity to use my trip to introduce some of the amazing music that i’ll be encountering along the way and try to feature some of the DJs, producers and cultural protagonists I’ll be hooking up with along the way and keep the Movimientos blog updated as I go. The first motivation behind my trip was to see carnival for the first time (this year in both Recife and Rio) but I couldn’t miss the opportunity to string a few DJ dates together (see list below) largely through DJs who’ve played at Movimientos parties in London however for one of my first gigs – in Sao Paulo this Friday a night called Furupa organised by the wonderful Mariana Pinho of Gandaia Arts – will not only feature the phenomenal talents of DJ Tudo but two producer / DJs Tahira and Aroop Roy (the latter also a UK resident) and both of whom have recently released Brazilian edits have been creating a bit of buzz.
