This is a past event.
Living in Lisboa since 2019, it’s from this city that Rodrigo Brandão now shoots the webs, weaves the net, and builds his combat vocabulary as anﬂc MC. Diving deep into the local creative effervescence, it was from São Paulo that he brought an impressive twenty-year curriculum. Both on record and on stage, he wielded the microphone for important names in the history of hip hop, rap, jazz, funk, and its ramifications, such as: Mano Brown, Nação Zumbi, Mike Ladd, Del The Funky Homosapien, Prince Paul, Tony Allen, Jeff Parker, Pharoah Sanders, or Brian Jackson. In Portugal, he absorbed the creative free jazz energy to set the right stage for his words, texts, and improvisations, waking us up to free thinking and a universe intoxicated by love. Outros Mashup is Rodrigo Brandão's new bridge that connects worlds and consciousnesses, linking Lisboa to São Paulo, via New York, Saturn, and Africa; creating music, discourse, and spirituality bathed in the hot sun of Ra and his disciples - among which, Marshall Allen, the 98 year old leader of Arkestra.*
*Due to illness, Marshall Allen will not be able to attend. Vincent Chancey will join Outros Mashup. A renowned Chicago horn player, Vincent Vincent Chancey is a member of the Sun Ra Arkestra constellation since 1976, having already collaborated with artists such as Aretha Franklin, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Carla Bley and a member of Lester Bowie’s Brass Fantasy.
