São Paulo’s acclaimed 10-piece instrumental collective Bixiga 70 produce Urban Afro-Brazilian grooves, empowered horn-driven melodicism and massive dance floor inspiration. They Are one of South America’s most exhilarating musical propositions.
Bixiga 70 has always been a reflection of the streets where they live. The band played their first show in October 2010 and released their debut album a year later. Eight years on they are still the same 10-piece collective, honing and shaping the music, evolving towards the changes found on Quebra Cabeça.
The rhythms are more sinuous than ever, snaking through the funk in way that looks more to Ghana or Nigeria than Memphis or Muscle Shoals, while the horns strut in powerful harmonies. It’s music that forges connections and retraces history while sounding absolutely contemporary. But for Bixiga 70, Africa will always be the root, and Brazil its vibrant flower.
