For two performances only, AfroReggae brings to the Barbican stage a base-line experience of Brazilian culture: the beat of the favela, the shanty-town sound. Their multi-style performance is a skillful combination of the most vital movements in Brazilian culture, from Tropicalismo to mangue beat, from Paulista rap to samba-reggae, from capoeira to carioca funk.
AfroReggae arrive in London from opening the Rolling Stones concert on Copacabana Beach, and at the Barbican will be joined by UK urban music stars, Estelle and TY.
