PERFORMING BRASIL – BRAZILAN CHORINHO //
Performing Brasil is a performance ensemble started in 2002 to celebrate all Brazilian things – music, culture, dance and language. Musical styles covered include samba, bossa nova, forró, samba-funk and frevo, but their real speciality is chorinho, the “Brazilian Blues”.
The group has recently given rise to the “Clube Nacional de Chorinho da Australia”, celebrating and developing this glorious, nostalgic, vibrant style in Sydney and has recorded and self-released their first CD of chorinho “Assanhados” in 2014.
DJ PAULO //
DJ Paulo has performed at Playbar and Samba Encontro events in Sydney. He is a percussionist and has a passion for the mesmerising rhythms of Brazil. Paulo draws his inspiration from Afro-Brazilian and latin rhythms, as well as jazz, soul, funk, drum & bass, reggae and hip-hop. Rhythm is the key and DJ Paulo is always ready to get you moving. Enjoy the journey!
MARK CRISSY //
Mark Crissy has played extensively both at home and abroad. He has DJ’d regularly in London at the Jewel Bar Piccadilly Circus and Sunday Soul Session in East London, and in Brazil at Sunday Sessions São Paulo, hosted by Roger Weekes (former DJ with jamiroquai and Soul to Soul). Back home Mark started a group called Novasoul, doing Sunday sessions with live musicians and artists. He has also been a regular at Samba Encontro in Sydney.
