DOWNTOWN SAMBA-JAZZ AND INNER-CITY SOUL FROM TITA LIMA MEETS BEN WESTBEECH (HOSTED BY GILLES PETERSON):
Gilles Peterson's bearing on popular culture is vast: his inexorable ardour for untapped music – be it global fusion, pioneering hip-hop, radical Brasiliana, cinematic arias, arcane jazz or urban soul – has seen him rightly and universally lauded as one of the most critical DJs, tastemakers and broadcasters in the world.
Peterson’s CV speaks volumes – former barrow boy; pirate radio maverick; Talkin' Loud chief; pivotal vanguard of the UK house and acid-jazz scenes – while his Radio One Worldwide show remains a critical touchstone for music lovers the globe over.
He’s also now at the helm of the Brownswood Recordings empire – a new endeavour dedicated to eclectic, soulful, global sounds – whose roster includes TrocaBrahma 07 ally Ben Westbeech.
Peterson’s enduring allegiance toward, and championing of, Brasilian culture has rendered him a singular advocate of the country’s musical legacy: as such, we’re delighted to welcome him to TrocaBrahma once more.
