Bixiga 70 are currently considered the most important representatives of contemporary Afro-Brazilian music. The 10-member powerhouse from the eponymous Bixiga neighborhood in São Paulo combines the traditional music of the region with urban Afrobeat, cumbia, and funk to create a highly danceable sound that regularly captivates audiences on four albums and successful tours around the world. Razor-sharp brass sections compete with a tight rhythm section, while sparkling guitars, arabesque organs, or drums of the Candomblé religion celebrate a wild outer-national party. At their very first Switzerland gig ever, the band will present their new, fifth album “Vapor” at Kaserne!
Tickets are CHF 30 in advance or CHF 35 at the box office.
