Crown Ruler and Planet Trip present...
AZYMUTH & MARCOS VALLE
DOORS 7:30PM // w/ Afrobrasiliana DJs
Two of the most iconic and influential archetypes of modern Brazilian music. Legacies that have proliferated and pushed since the 1960s, remaining just as relevant nearly six decades later.
Given their significance, it’s mind boggling to think Azymuth will only now make their Australian debut while Marcos Valle makes his return for the first time since 2007. This isn’t a tokenistic nostalgia trip, rolling out relics from the past for a sing-a-long. On Saturday, March 19th within the intimate setting of Mary’s Underground, get ready for a very special show by musical mavericks who continue to prove they’re on top of their game - as perceptive and inspired as they were fifty years ago.
A more than complimentary double header, the occasional collaborators both define not only the story of Rio’s bursting bossa-nova and samba scenes of the 60s/70s but also the forward-thinking imagination to take those traditions to expansive new territories, helping explore modern music’s potential.
Valle and Azymuth’s enduring influence on funk, soul, samba, jazz, pop and even rock of the world, cannot be underestimated; an adventurous brand of fusion which continues to be an inspiration for artists everywhere. A who's who of contemporary iconoclasts have sampled, remixed, repurposed or collaborated with the giants - Madlib, Roni Size, MF Doom, IG Culture, Flying Lotus, Adrian Younge & Ali Shaheed Muhammed, Mark Pritchard, Theo Parrish, 4Hero and so on; Such is the lasting legacy of these genre-bending radicals who continue to create genuinely pertinent music to this day.
Between these savant's they’ve worked with them all - Sarah Vaughn, Frank Sinatra, Sergio Mendes, Stevie Wonder, Leon Ware, Chicago, Jorge Ben, Airto Moreira, Chick Corea, George Duke, Milton Nascimento, Tim Maia to list just a handful. They’ve made global pop hits and explored the more esoteric. Sampled by the likes of Jay Z, Kanye West, Will.I.Am the music continues to influence today’s pop culture.
On parallel journeys, each have continuously evolved and found new generations of fans, occasionally crossing paths on recordings or live performances to this day. The two combine once more for a bonafide flex of their repertoire and improvisational mastery. A showcase of some of the most defining Brazilian music made and its lasting impact on the world.
Warming up the floor will be long standing party throwers and lovers of deep Brazilian sonics, the Afrobrasiliana DJs
