about

Blending Brazilian instrumental funk with Afrobeat, Ethio-Jazz and Afro-cuban percussions, 10-piece band from São Paulo Bixiga 70 includes two saxes, one trombone, one trumpet, two percussionists, guitars, keyboards, bass and drums, and are quite the perfect example of what 'Afro/Tropical' means to Paris DJs! The band loved the cover artwork we sent them, and submitted us 'Luz Vermelha', which means 'red light', from their self-titled album from 2011. As with many other countries, Afrobeat & Afrofunk are on the rise in Brazil, with many bands appearing on the scene, and many musicians from all over the world coming to play there and collaborate with the locals groups. We just couldn't pass on featuring this brilliant Brazilified afrofunk group, Bixiga 70, in one of our compilations!

About Bixiga 70 :
One of today's hippest gigs around town in São Paulo is the instrumental ten piece funk band Bixiga 70. With their genre-spanning mix of afro- beat, Guinean malinké, Brazilian candomblé, samba and cumbia, Bixiga 70 are a welcome addition to any party. Considered the spearhead of growing brazilian afro scene, the band shared the stage with major names like Jungle By Night, Woima Collective, Tony Allen, Seun Kuti & Egypt 80, Ebo Taylor and Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra. On their live shows this band exposes high-octane break beats, tight afrobeat guitars, rolling congas, and an enormous horn section blasting at full-force throughout. No wonder that Bixiga 70 rose to become Brazil’s top name in retro-funky goodness.
