Bixiga 70, is named after a place and a band, pointing to the two most important touchstones in their sound. Bixiga is where they come from, a district in their hometown São Paulo, and points to their deep love of brazilian music. The number is borrowed from Fela Kutis legendary Africa '70 and points to the endless possibilities in afrobeat music. The band consist of a large, stellar rhythm section, a vast keyboard park and a tight horn section made up of solo players with a story to tell.
This autumn Bixiga 70 will release their highly anticipated fourth album on Glitterbeat (Bombino, Jon Hassell, King Ayisoba), a few weeks before they visit Oslo World.
