BIXIGA 70 (BR)
Friday 05.07.13 - 01:30 - Odeon
Sao Paolo's Bixiga 70 lend their name from afrobeat legend Fela Kuti’s backingband Africa 70. No coincidence. This funky collective of no less than 10 Brassilians sure know their way around afrobeat. Furthermore, they throw a host of other Latin American rhythms, tones and traditions into the high waters, making anything possible – especially the horn and percussion are duelling to blow you away if you do not start dancing your way through this light blue flood of funk, cumbia, samba, TBC… A mix of genres full of 70es groove and fire in the loins.
Band schedule is ready in May
Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.
We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
