Producer / DJ MAGA BO will leave his Rio de Janeiro base this summer to bring Europe a taste of Brazil!
While the whole world will be looking at the sports events, why not treat your audience to pulsing Afro-Brazilian beats, where futuristic and Amazonian collide?
Over the years Maga Bo has become a household name, by playing WOMAD (Uk), Mundial (Nl), WOMEX, Sfinks (Be), Fusion (De), Juicy Beats (De) and more. He's coming back this summer to spread his Transnational Beats further.
BBC - "Maga Bo had the dance tent hopping. As the Olympics opening ceremony wowed those at home, we were taking a trip round the electronic dance map."
Sunday 12 Jan - 2 days before the official album release in North America -
Kuenta i Tambu aka KiT played GlobalFest. This Amsterdam based / Dutch Antillean group got the crowd dancing with their spicy traditional drums and blasting electronics! Webster Hall's Studio quickly turned into a hot Caribbean party...
Rolling Stone Magazine coined KiT "1 of 10 New Artists You Need To Know":
"Sounds Like: A super-crunk, blacklight warehouse party surrounded by four separate Carnival parades."
Listen to KiT's full set on NPR
