Chinese Cookie Poets are a power trio from Rio De Janeiro made up of Marcos Campello on guitar, Felipe Zenicola on bass and Renato Godoy on Drums. When I was in Rio at Novas Frequencias these guys were everywhere. Marco performed a really striking improvised set in a duo, Renato was doing sound for the festival and they were there on the Sunday showcase event where the intensity of the Brazilian noise crew just grew and grew. This will be their first time in the UK and along-side Negro Leo they will generate a riot of Brazilian colour at Counterflows. CCP’s 2013 release Danza Cava with trumpeter Nicolau Lafeta is a real favourite of mine.
