“Samba jazz legends” MOJO "Azymuth are crate-digger favourites evangelised by indie hip-hop producer Madlib" UNCUT "Innovators in dance/world fusion" Billboard “Brazilian cult trio” Q "Arguably the most successful band to come out of Brazil" (Songlines), Azymuth have played with just about everyone throughout its golden era of MPB, jazz, soul, funk, including Jorge Ben, Milton Nascimento, Marcos Valle, Tim Maia, and Elis Regina. Azymuth’s influence on electronic music around the globe is unquestioned, and they’ve collaborated with the likes of 4hero and Jazzanova, and been remixed by Theo Parrish, Ron Trent and Global Communication and Daniel Maunick amongst others. Since the passing of keyboard maestro Jose Roberto Bertrami in 2012, remaining members Ivan Conti and Alex Malheiros have worked tirelessly to keep the spirit of Azymuth alive, enlisting keyboardist Kiko Continentino (Milton Nascimento, Gilberto Gil, Djavan). Formed in 1968 in Rio de Janeiro, Azymuth are responsible for carving out an entirely new sound, fusing jazz-funk with samba to create their own unique genre, referred to as ‘samba doido’ (crazy samba). They have recorded over thirty albums throughout an astounding five decade career. An Azymuth live show is a journey through the full spectrum of their brilliantly coloured expressionist funk, with all the cosmic energy and masterful musicianship you’d expect from the world's greatest three-man orchestra. This is an 14+ event, U18s must be accompanied by an adult.
