Venue and Date
The Art School (Victoria Bar), 5 April 2019
23:00 doors –
For our late night parties this year we are focussing on new and experimental music from the South American diaspora. As part of this we’re delighted to welcome a live set from Baile-funk queen MC Carol, as well as DJ sets from LYZZA and Nena Etza.
MC Carol is one of the leading lights in Brazil’s Baile Funk scene – a genre loosely derived from Miami bass and gangsta rap, regularly shared at discos and street parties in different parts of Brazil. Offering fresh critical perspective from the country’s favela community, MC Carol’s lyrics confront race and gender politics, domestic violence, the education system and so much more. A vital voice in one of the most tumultuous political environments Brazil has faced in decades, we’re delighted to welcome her to the UK for the first time as part of one of our late night parties.
Accessibility: The venue is on the ground floor of the building. Please note there might be flashing lights and smoke machines used during the club night.
