Once a month, Braza! is taking a faithful crowd on a musical trip around Brazil to explore the rhythms and sounds of Samba, Funk, Batucada, MPB, Broken Beat, Tropicália, Hip Hop, Forró, House, Boogie, Soul, Drum ‘n’ Bass, Disco, Jazz, Bossa Nova, and so much more this great country has to offer.
Whether it’s Kento playing his recent finds from a Brazilian family visit or Vanka and Elan playing the contemporary rhythms of Baile Funk and Brazilian house you’re guaranteed to see groups of Brazilian transplants moving and socializing. But what gives Braza its lively reputation and charm is the addition of live Brazilian percussion players, iconic Brazilian images being projected onto SOM’s wall, and even food carts serving up native delights.. The party achieves the difficult task of not only bringing the sights, sounds, and tastes of Brazil but most importantly a spirit that usually can only be found 6,476 miles away.
B and Eric Coleman (Mochilla, LA)
Hosted by Antonio Guedes

VTech and Mochilla have collaborated on many groundbreaking musical events, but the pinnacle was in 2009 with the amazing Timeless Series that was brought to Los Angeles. It truly was the beginning. Where musical borders were no longer seen as obstacles, and where composer arrangers who were once overlooked were wholeheartedly embraced. From the series, celebrated Brasilian composer/arranger was one of three, and now, we find the Timeless series traveling to Arthur’s home country in fitting fashion.
J.Rocc, Coleman and B+ will be in Sao Paulo from February 9-11th screening at the Espaco Unibanco de Cinema and then on the 16-18th at the Unibanco Arteplex Botafogo in Rio de Janeiro. Each film will be screened individually and also J.Rocc will have a chance to do his special Timeless Serato Mega-Mix. There will be Q&As each night with special friends dropping by to contribute.
Share the info, share the music, share the experience. And as always, “Turn it Up!!”
