São Paulo based ten-piece combo Bixiga 70, are one of the guiding voices of Brazil’s contemporary instrumental music scene. Taking Fela Kuti’s Afrika 70 band as a launchpad both in name and spirit, this explosive ten-piece unleash a ground-breaking fusion of African and South American rhythms and sounds.
Live Bixiga 70 is a breathtaking rhythmic storm where inspired solos, harmony and dynamics, beats and improvisation all mesh together in vital and unpredictable ways. The band spans a joyous danceability, a sharp sense of humour and committed political reflections.
The band came together in recording studio Traquitana, number 70 at Rua 13 de Maio, a hidden treasure in the neighborhood of Bixiga, Central São Paulo. Hence the name Bixiga 70.
