Over the next few years we are pleased to announce the exciting collaboration with Novas Frequencias of Rio De Janeiro in Brazil www.novasfequencias.com . Chico Dub, one of the directors of Novas Frequencias, came over to the UK to explore the scene across the country. After enjoying a barnstorming Counterflows Chico put forward the idea that our two festival s work together on ideas and possible collaborations over the next few years. The initial plan is that I will be attending Chico’s festival in December to engage with the scene in Brazil and also get involved in discussions and talks as part of the festival. Then for, Counterflows 2015, we will hopefully invite some of Brazil’s exciting artists over to be part of the Counterflows’ community. Longer term we hope to develop possibilities for Scottish artists to perform in Brazil and also produce some kind of new collaboration between Scottish and Brazilian artists exploring shared and differing cultural processes and methods of expression.
