DA CRUZ (US Debut)
Forget Samba. Forget funny football tricks. Forget all the clichés you know about Brazil. Da Cruz is lead by Mariana Da Cruz, born and raised in São Paulo and based in Berne, Switzerland, the band will take you to a different place: modern and urban Brazil, a country staggering between revolution and resignation. Da Cruz have translated all the anger and joy, all the hope and despair into extremely danceable songs. Da Cruz directs an electro-acoustic trip from the subversive communities of Lagos to the favelas of Rio and the townships of Johannesburg, with occasional stops in the smoke-filled recording studios of Kingston Town and poorly ventilated clubs of London. Blending Kwaito, Baile Funk, Afrobeat, Dub and Hip Hop, the music for their new album "Eco do Futuro“ is a decisively urban black record.

TAGUA TAGUA (US Debut)
Tagua Tagua is a new project by Brazilian composer and music producer Felipe Puperi, most famously known as the lead-singer of Wannabe Jalva. Under Tagua Tague, he has released two EPs titled Tombamento Inevitável and Pedaço Vivo exploring Brazilian percussion, African rhythms, all with hints of soul rock, ethereal and electronic elements. He has most recently worked as producer for Filipe Catto and Johnny Hooker’s version for Beija Flor, a song made famous all over Brazil by Timbalada, the soundtrack for TV Globo’s soap opera Segundo-Sol.

LUCIANE DOM (US Debut)
Luciana Dom is a Rio de Janeiro based singer and songwriter, and a wave of new generation of rising Afro-Brazilian artists representing Brazilian black music. Her dmusic, imbued with the sound of the African diaspora, explores race and identity in Brazil, with songs that address issues of racial justice and the affirmation and recognition of black identity. Luciane’s critical perspective has taken her to stages across Brazil, where eshe performances alongside BNegão, Thalma de Freitas, Marcio Local, MC Marechael, Gabriel Moura and Haitian singer Vox Sambou. Her work is multi-disciplinary, combining music and theater in her visually stunning music videos.
