Flavia Coelho is a young Brazilian singer, who's
made a huge impact across Europe with her new album Bossa Muffin. As the
title suggests, she draws on the traditions of the samba and the bossa
nova and the melodies of the forro from north-eastern Brazil, but she
and her red-hot band work in ragga and hip-hop to create a stylish yet
mischievous mix that takes the new Brazil to the world.
Andreya Triana, who opens the show, came to
prominence as a guest singer with trip-hop superstar Bonobo. Expect a
mix of soul, folk and poetry where lilting melodies combine with
cinematic jazzy break beats.
