Brasilintime returns

The Brasilintime show returns in the form of Batucada Com Discos to the Tivoli, Dublin on May 2nd and Trinity Rooms, Limerick May 4th with the legendary Tony Allen, Madlib, Ivan Conti, J-Rocc, DJ Nuts and Joao Paryhba.

The show will rely on the backbone of Afrobeat legend Tony Allen, Fela Kuti’s drummer, recent collaborator with Damon Alburn on ‘The Good, The Bad & The Queen’ and in essence one of the most important musicians of the last 40 years as per Brian Eno. Cited as creating the genre Afrobeat, Tony Allen is no ordinary musician. Add two of Brasil’s finest musicians Ivan Conti (Mamao) 1/3 of Azymuth, the collosal force in Brasilian and World music who sold 100s of thousands of records worldwide and Joao Parahyba renowned percussionist with samba rock band Trio Mocoto and backing band for Jorge Ben. Sprinkle this with producer, MC, instrumentalist extraordinnaire…Madlib… The Beat Konducta and producer of the new Erykah Badu LP. Add your favourite deejay saviour J-Rocc…the founder of The Beat Junkies and place him alongside South America’s finest turntablist DJ Nuts and this event becomes devastating.

Sunday May 4th
The Trinity Rooms, The Granary, Limerick
