Great success in Japan for Banda Favela's first tour Banda Favela filled Motion Blue in Yokohama with pure Brazilian sound from Minas, percussive Samba beats and a new approach from Italy.
One of the highlights of their live performance is improvisation using many kind of percussion from all over the world, heavy drums&guitar&bass, female and male unison vocals and melodious accordion.
At the end of their shows, they played covers of Brazilian classics like Tristeza. Their performance made promoters and punters very happy.
Tracks from the Banda Favela album are currently being remixed, among the others, by Japanese artists.
Owl, who released stuff on Yoshitoshi, and Note Native who is the key record buyer at the Hot Wax record shop in Tokyo. Both of them were spotted at the show and had conversation for their next collaboration.
Finally, during the tour it was decided that Banda Favela will be featured on Japanese producer Bayaka's new album.
