SOUNDS OF BRAZIL
SATANIQUE SAMBA TRIO
Munha da 7 bas/groepsleider, Lucas ‘Sombrio’ Muniz basklarinet, Gustavo ‘Don Chavez’ Elias gitaar, Jota Dale cavaquinho, Lupa Marques drums
Dazzling collage of styles by Brazilian underground phenomenon
(confusingly enough, not an actual trio). ‘They take traditional
Brazilian music forms and turn them on their head’ (Beatmag).
The name might suggest otherwise, but the Satanique Samba Trio is nothing like a samba trio. The five-piece formation from Brasília takes the clichés of samba, bossa nova and other Brazilian styles and severely deconstructs them into eccentric music that draws comparisons with musical dissidents such as Captain Beefheart and Os Mutantes. The band, which includes a bass clarinet player, gained cult status with their many performances, supporting Tom Zé and Naná Vasconcelos for example. In the past 15 years they have released albums with appropriate titles such as Misantropicalia and Bad Trip Simulator.
‘The delve deep into the Brazilian roots, chopping them to pieces and reassembling the pieces into something that Captain Beefheart would have sounded like were he from Brazil’ (Gonzo Circus).
The Bimhuis restaurant is open prior to the concert from 6.30 till 8.30PM (reservations via 020-7882158). After the concert, the Bimhuis Café is open (free entrance).
