BrazilBeat Sound System

Bio

BrazilBeat Sound System is a rising international talent on the cutting edge of roots and dance music. The DJ - live drums collective originated in San Francisco, California in 2000, bringing the upbeat sound to Aotearoa NZ the following year.

Internationally renowned Brazilian master percussionist Nego Beto created the project after touring, recording, producing and educating in five continents over his 20 year music career. Highlights include touring with reggae legends The Wailers and working as a producer for MTV in Brazil. In 2006 Nego Beto played percussion on the B-Live/Loop 'OE:Brazil' project - New Zealand tour. His hard-case MC style and riveting performances on congas, timbales, bongos, drum machines and varied percussion instruments send audiences to delerium.

DJ Mara infuses captivating Brazilian melodies with thunderous basslines. The BBSS sound is a mashup of funk, house, breaks, dub, roots & drum ‘n bass. Tight percussive arrangements complete the picture.

BrazilBeat’s original tracks are awakening increased interest across the globe; their original tracks have been released in the USA, Brazil, Japan and New Zealand.

'Rain' and 'Comigo Ninguem Pode' were released in the US by Pollen Records. 'Rain' was featured on the Brazilian compilation 'Bits Sessions' (Nikita Music-“2004), which was then relased in Japan in 2005 (Ward Records). 'Rain' and 'Capoeira Dub' came out on the Kaiti Collective in New Zealand (Te Toka-2004), and three other NZ compilations have featured 'Rain': 'Resolution' (AD Recordings-2005), 'Jambalaya' (Bench-2005), and 'Twilight Sessions' (Tuborg-2006).

Nego Beto & Mara also write the BrazilBeat column in The Beat Magazine (USA), bringing the newest trends in Brazilian music to tens of thousands of readers.
