  • Iconili – Tupi Novo Mundo

    From their website:

    “Iconili is a Brazilian band from the city of Belo Horizonte composed by eleven musicians. Its instrumental compositions bring a peculiar mix of musical timbres, merged into an trancending atmosphere. Brasses, electric guitars, keyboards and percussion instruments promote rhythmic and cultural crossovers, summoning musical styles like Jazz, Afrobeat, Rock and Brazilian music. Exploring new and old rhythms combined with a wide range of musical and visual aspects, Iconili brings a tropical and psychedelic sound experience to the stage.”


  • Vida Seca – Som de Sucata

    Vida Seca was created by members of a street carnival band that used scrap and waste as raw material for constructing musical instruments. They explore timbres and sonorities obtained from these materials researching and re-reading Brazilian , African and Latin American rhythms. They also compose music, produce tools and teach workshops. These works seek to instigate people to our social and environmental reality through an artistic and pedagogical discourse that questions and proposes actions.
