Music: Formed in 1980, Ara Ketu has seen the release of multiple gold and platinum albums throughout their career along with numerous music awards. 12 members strong, Ara Ketu produces an energetic, danceable mix of Afro-Bahian percussive grooves mixed with electronic instrumentation.
Film: The documentary Fala Tu (Lives of Rhyme), written by Nathaniel Leclerly and directed by Guilherme Coelho, tells the life story of three little-known rappers from the suburbs of Rio de Janeiro. The film captures how rap affects their daily lives and how their own experiences shape the way they write and sing.
