Afroelectro

Afrobeat

Founded in 2009, the band Afroelectro creates its sonic identity by revisiting the African continent through collaborations with artists as well as their contemporary sound production. Direct collaboration with African musicians and the enriching experience of living in a large metropolis like São Paulo, has been a major catalyst of Brazilian and world culture. It is where the Brazilian styles like Coco and Embolada dialogue with Hip-Hop, where Rock meets Camdomblé, where tradition meets the new.
Brazilian culture is found with great force in the music of Afroelectro, especially in the verses and melodic vocal parts. Chants from popular cultures from different regions of the country are evident in the songs of the group from the singing of the Tambor de Crioula de Taboca do Maranhão, to the verses of Cavalo-Marinho from Nazaré da Mata (Pernambuco), as well as Capoeira and Candomblé songs.
In 2012 Afroelectro released their first album, the result of a year’s work between hours of studio and live performances, thus creating an album differentiated in rhythmic and sound experiments but at the same time accessible and danceable. They also play live sound tracks to theatre pieces and released an EP intitled “Mocambo” in 2013.
