Musicians immersed in the city’s diverse avant-garde pop, jazz, dub, and Brazilian scenes join together in an eclectic 10-piece set. With its genre-spanning mix of afro-beat, Guinean malinké, Brazilian candomblé, samba, and cumbia, Bixiga 70 is a welcome addition to any party. Taking Fela Kuti’s Afrika 70 band as a launchpad both in name and spirit, this 10-piece band and its fusion of African and South American rhythms cause havoc in any dance.
