Noite MIL na SIM narrows the distance between Portugal and Brazil in beats per minute
For the second year in a row, MIL joined SIM São Paulo to organize Noite MIL na SIM, a party that brings together Portuguese and Brazilian artists on the same stage. The success of the first edition of the event in 2017 anticipated the high expectations for the second, successfully met.
No dia 7 de Dezembro, o palco da JazzNosFundos conheceu a energia contagiante de Blu Samu, a comoção de Fado Bicha, o talento fresco de Pedro Mafama, a força de PAUS, o poder de Throes + The Shine e o futurismo ancestral da carioca ÀIYÉ. A noite arrancou com Pedro Mafama e a sua mistura de Fado, kuduro, kizomba, reggaeton e trap mais sombrio. O amplo radar e poder de fusão do artista traduzem-se em originalidade e incendeiam apresentações ao vivo e esta não foi excepção.
On December 7th, the stage of JazzNosFundos met Blu Samu‘s contagious energy, Fado Bicha‘s commotion, Pedro Mafama‘s fresh talent, the power of PAUS, the power of Throes + The Shine and the ancestral futurism of ÀYIÉ.
The night kicked off with Pedro Mafama and his mix of Fado, kuduro, kizomba, reggaeton, and darker trap. The artist’s broad radar and fusion power translate into originality and ignite live performances, and this was no exception.
Lila Fadista na voz e João Caçador na guitarra é a formação do Fado Bicha. Fado Bicha is Lila Fadista on voice and João Caçador on guitar. Fado Bicha is a project that has fado as a reference matrix, a conservative musical style nourished by a traditionalist medium. By altering already sung poems and creating new ones, spaces are created for the experimentation of non-normative narratives regarding gender and sexuality.
From Portugal to Brussels, through Antwerp, Blu Samu has lived several lives. Somewhere between being a poet and urban samurai, Blu Samu tells his story through an intuitive mix of hip hop and soul. The new sensation of the Belgian hip hop scene has thrilled the audience on their debut in Brazil.
After Blu Samu’s urban poetry, the JazzNosFundos stage welcomed PAUS‘s siamese drums. The quartet, which has already set the Lisbon-Sao Paulo connection to its latest EP “LXSP”, recorded at Red Bull’s São Paulo studio, has infuriated all present with the throbbing force of their songs.
From experimental rock drenched to synthesizers we move on to the ancestral futurism of the carioca ÀIYÉ, a solo project by drummer, producer, composer and sonic artist Larissa Confronto. After years in the band Ventre, the artist has released her first solo EP “Gratitrevas” by publisher Balaclava Records and has been experimenting with her live performances in performances that have previously toured Lisbon, New York, Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, Belo Horizonte among other cities.
The party ended in ecstasy with Throes + The Shine‘s cocktail of kuduro, rock, electronics, R&B, hip-hop and disco. Known for their effusive performances, in São Paulo was no exception.
