Friday 30th August @ Hootananny
OQuadro headline - flying in from Bahia following their successful UK tour in May - Brazilian Hip Hop with Dub and Afrobeat flavours that will have you dancing like you're out in Salvador drenched in rum…
Tipped as one of the hottest acts in Brazil right now, OQuadro deliver fired-up hip hop with their own unique Bahian kick.
OQuadro do old-school, with Brazilian rules. That’s high-velocity conscious rap, candomblé drums and dub, ijexá and afrobeat flavours – explosive!
Following ground-breaking shows at The Great Escape, London's Roundhouse and Notting Hill Arts Club in May 2013, the Bahia boom is back in the UK this summer.
Support from Vibrations of Sound, the eight-piece psychedelic Soul band with a touch of Latin and Afrogroove.
And there's more! We'll also be staging another international act on tour, Brazilian singer-songwriter Aleh Ferreira, from Rio de Janeiro who has worked with many of the leading names in Brazilian music. He's a Samba artist, influenced by Soul with some pop, Afrobeat and Jazz pulled in.
Of course original Movimientos DJ Cal Jader will be bringing you the freshest picks from underground Latin and global tunes and bass. Come and be part of our Global Summer. Join the movement!
