Created in the wake of a brutal police massacre in the early 1990s, AfroReggae turn their socially conscious songs into blistering live performances. Their musical militancy is a forceful alternative to gunfire. Following sell out performances in bite06, AfroReggae return for two nights only.
From the Favela to the World brings to the Barbican stage a base-line experience of Brazilian culture: the beat of the favela, the shanty-town sound. Their multi-style performance is a skilful combination of the most vital movements in Brazilian culture, from Tropicalismo to mangue beat, from Paulista rap to samba-reggae, from capoeira to carioca funk.
Performance time: 20:00
Running time: 105 mins / no interval
Post Show Talk 28 June
