Brazilian Wax w/ Mafalda

Friday 16 November 2018

As the last of autumn drains away and winter rolls in, what better time to dial back the clock to sizzling summer? Brazilian Wax are back to take you from the concrete jungle of Leeds to the jungle-fringed shores of Rio De Janeiro. We’re back at HiFi after our latest party with Tim Garcia and Nubya Garcia and we’re very excited this time round to be bringing in, Portugal-born and London-based, Mafalda:

Mafalda is the partner-in-crime of Sam Shepherd (AKA Floating Points) and together they run Melodies International, a reissue label and extension to Floating Points’ internationally-acclaimed ‘You’re A Melody’ parties. After moving to London only 4 years ago, she has quickly become one of the most exciting names in jazz, soul and global grooves; revered for her crate-digging and loved for her irresistibly feel-good, groove-inducing selection. Mafalda has had frequent shows on NTS, Red Bull Radio, guested on Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide FM (on Brazil Day!) and featured on Boiler Room, Rinse FM and Dekmantel’s Podcast.

With Melodies International reissuing the legendary and much-sought-after Brazilian 7”, Trio Ternura’s ‘A Gira/Last Tango In Paris’, in September, we thought it was perfect timing to get Mafalda up to Leeds.

Brazilian Wax is Joe Osborne & Henry Weekes, radio presenters and track selectors. As always, we’ll be spinning the best in Samba, Afro-Brazilian, MPB, Funk, Soul and Disco. Get down to HiFi for tropical climes and good times.

“I feel good when there’s Brazilian music playing, maybe it’s the warmth. I can’t explain because there are so many types of it that I like, Soul, Jazz, Funk, Bossa, Samba, Psych…” Mafalda on Música Macondo
