Aja Brasil


★After “Festa Junina” Special!★ ab 22:00


Most of the DJs who spin Brazilian rhythms go to the fashionable Baile Funk or Brazilian drum n’ bass, but Tahira proves that Brazilian modern music scene produces much more than this. It’s a commitment to good music, representing another kind of Braziliality and not focusing on traditional samba, but in other different regional styles, showing the real and complete Brazilian music scenario.

His heavy curriculum has four gigs at Brahma International (two consecutive years in Ukraine – Brahma open air in Canada – Brahma Sessions). The closing of Rome Film Festival, Vibe Bar in Bricklane (one of the most important nightclubs in London), Bar Guanabara (the most important Brazilian music club in London), Callamarie Moon (a party organized by Brazilectro compilations selector Ralph Zimerman), Vinyl Vibes label party, and the busy underground club Nublu, in New York, parties who also had as guests top DJs such as Gilles Peterson, Mark de Clive Lowe, Norman Jay, to name a few. He’s one of the most active Brazilian DJs abroad.

At that time spinning music alone is not enough ­ DIFUSORA is born. Together with Marc Frank, who got credits already being part of Les Gammas, they do several remixes. Music for the dancefloor with a strong Brazilian touch. In 2004 Dubben is the next joint project. Well known among Djs worldwide because of their releases on the (in)famous G.A.M.M. label.

Gemeinschaft – Fest ‑ Musik – Folklore – Integration – Mythen – Ernte – Familie – Tänze – Essen – Spiele – bunte Farben – Verkleidung – vom Lande – Zaubersprüche – Unschuld – Verspieltheit

Wer schon einmal im Juni durch Brasilien gereist ist, hat sicherlich schon heraus gefunden, dass die gesamte Bevölkerung den ganzen Monat über Parties feiert, welche in manchen Städten sogar größer sind als der Karneval. Bei den Junifesten (Festas Juninas) wird die Ernte gefeiert und dem Heiligen Antonius, Johannes und Peter gedacht. Und zwar auf typisch brasilianische Art mit jeder Menge traditionellem Essen, Getränken, Musik und einem theatralischem Tanz, dem Quadrilha, einer Art square dance.

Die Feste sind sehr farbenfroh. Die Party wird mit Papierlaternen und Flaggen dekoriert. Männer verkleiden sich als Bauernjungen und tragen große Strohhüte. Frauen tragen rot karierte Kleidung und schmücken sich mit falschen Zahnlücken und Sommersprossen. All das in einem liebevollen Tribut an die Wurzeln der traditionellen, regionalen Musik Brasiliens. Wie zu Karneval werden an diesen Festen Kostüme getragen, in diesem Fall Bauernkostüme, überall wird viel getanzt und es werden lustige Spiele für die Kinder veranstaltet.


community – celebration – music – folklore – integration – imagination – myths – harvest – family – dances – food – games – colours – dressing up – countryside – magic spells – innocence – playfulness

Whoever has traveled to Brazil during the month of June, has already found out that all Brazilians celebrate the month with parties that can be even bigger than Carnaval in some cities. The Festas Juninas celebrate the harvest, Saints Anthony, John and Peter with lots of traditional foods, drinks, music, and a theatrical dance inherited from the French called quadrilha (a type of square dance).

The Celebrations are very colourful. We decorate the party with paper lanterns and flags. Men dress up as farm boys with large straw hats, and women wear pigtails, freckles, painted gap teeth and red-checkered dresses, all in a loving tribute to the origins of Brazilian regional music. Like during Carnival, these festivities involve costume-wearing (in this case, peasant costumes), lots of dancing and fun games for the children.
