Warm up for the biggest Carnival in UK!
GANDAIA ARTS brings THREE BANDS to fill the night with the best of a hidden Brazil brought to you specially to this occasion!

A pre-party for Notting Hill Carnival, this will be the celebration of Maracatudo Mafua’s 2nd parade at NHC in partnership with Cocoyea Mas Band. 

On this night they will have a special set with surprise guests as well as their dancers and musicians performing in full glory! The night will also count with the honorable presence of a number of visiting artists from Pernambuco, a state in the North East of Brazil.

Coco de Praia is a group formed by Pacheco Cantador and Arnaldo do Coco, aiming to transmit the culture of “Samba de Coco” (Coconut samba) in order to enrich the cultural legacy of the city of Olinda and the state of Pernambuco. Showing its roots and joyful musicality, the group has since 2008 transformed “fisherman stories” into the songs released on their first album as part of Olinda’s 2012 Carnival. This will be their UK album launch “Mestres das Artes- Manhas do Mar”. This initiative is supported by Funcultura.
Mestre Santino was born Santino Justino de Souza, a rural worker who started his path in Pernambuco’s traditional culture in 1948, when he was 8 years old. Singing traditional rhythms such as ciranda, he went on tour with the age of 15 years, having his solo debut in 1967. The artist is a reference to younger generations of musicians; also being one of the legends of Nazare da Mata, an area in the countryside of Pernambuco which is fertile in culture. It is with honor that we bring this artist to his 1st Tour abroad. An initiative supported by Funcultura.

On the decks, Dj D.Vyzor with his Strictly Vinyl Set will be spinning via 2 turntables some Latin Breakbeats, Jazz Funk, Rare Grooves and beyond.
