Musician

Djangada

Born:

ast emerging as the new Brazilian sound from the UK, Djangada's funky reworking of Brazilian classics has captivated audiences all over. Their dynamic trio interplay comes from years of performing together and is a thrill to witness live; a blend of traditional Brazilian music with a jazz aesthetic that is lively and accessible, but with a deep sense of craft and musicality.

The name Djangada comes from the word jangada, a fishing boat found in the north-east of Brazil, the home of Afro-Brazilian rhythms. It is from here that Djangada draws their inspiration, transforming the classic songs of Bahia's Dorival Caymmi and Gilberto Gil into punchy instrumental grooves
