TrocaBrahma
July 28, 2006 - July 30, 2006

Brasilian beer Brahma is inviting you to celebrate the spirit of Brasil this summer with TrocaBrahma. Troca Brahma will fuse the finest in established and up and coming UK and Brasilian music talent for an exceptional series of sonic fiestas, live shows and collaborations in London, Manchester and Edinburgh, (venue details below), from July 28-30.

Bringing a fiery cast of UK stars, (including MOBO-winning hip-hop rapscallion Sway; global music guru Gilles Peterson; jazz wunderkind Soweto Kinch; and art-rock upstarts the 1990s), and a blazing range of Brasilian names (such as film and music trailblazer Seu Jorge – star of last week’s South Bank Show; electronic maverick Bruno E Sexteto; and groundbreaking vocalist Patrcia Marx), Troca Brahma promises an effervescent culture jam of contemporary UK and Brasilian talent. The best news is that some of these incredible un-missable urban events will have FREE ENTRY– check local listings or www.brahma.com/trocabrahma for further information.

Much of the carnival's fruit will be borne from the Troca Brahma Exchange: a project during which such divergent, inventive UK acts as Mark De Clive Lowe, the 1990s and Silhouette Brown (Bugz in the Attic, 4 Hero), will visit Brasil over the next few weeks to engage and create with like minded – and unlikely – indigenous counterparts including Seu Jorge, Bruno E Sexteto and young sonic rabble-rousers Instituto. All of these exchange artists (full details below) will return to the UK to perform their unique UK / Brasilian collaborations for the first time in front of a live audience.

From live sets and collaborations to impromptu jams and live art; from upbeat global improv to offbeat local DJ slots, Troca Brahmawill set the city alight: all day, all night, all weekend.

To celebrate the launch of TrocaBrahma and his own ‘Back to Brazil’ compilation Gilles Peterson has created a series of six Brasilian podcasts, available throughout Summer 2006, exploring the culture and music of Brasil – downloadable from www.brahma.com/gillespeterson.

TrocaBrahma continues Brahma’s musical journey in the UK, bringing the best of Brasil to the UK music scene. First brewed in Brasil in 1888, Brahma is the country’s most famous and best-selling beer and is synonymous with Brasil’s unique culture. Its taste and ginga-inspired styling reflect the country’s distinctive and original contribution to the world of art, music, fashion and culture.
