In this edition of Brasil Music Exchange we focus on two music powerhouses –São Paulo and Salvador.
São Paulo is a megacity of over 20 million people and it’s the buzz at the heart of the independent music scene in Brazil. We feature music from the forefront of the SP new wave right now, with Metá Metá and their “apocalyptic afropunk”, the gorgeous pop melodies of Tulipa, indie rock princes Holger and hip hop star Criolo.
Heading up to the North-East, Salvador is the capital of the Bahia – the state with the strongest African cultural heritage in Brazil and the source of so much musical history. Our playlist highlights include Os Nelsons, with their electronic energy blast, the sweet reggae vocals of Soraia Drummond and the candomblé-powered hip hop of Opanijé. Salvador is famous for musical innovation. Take a listen and find out why!
