During our temporary closure, we’re digging deep into the Band on the Wall archive to pick out some of our favourite recordings from gigs gone by. For our weekly Live-ish session, we’ll be broadcasting a full archive gig ‘as live’ for you to watch along. So tune in here at 7pm every Friday evening!
Continually pushing the boundaries of jazz, funk, electronic music and disco, as expressed through their signature samba swing, the Brazilian mavericks Azymuth have recreated the energy of those spellbinding seventies’ sessions which would launch them into international recognition and confirm their status as one of Brazil’s most successful bands.
From the disco-carnival title track to sunny jazz-funk head-nodder Orange Clouds, through to the deep-space samba Corumbá, Azymuth have drawn upon five decades of consummate craftsmanship – which coupled with their endless desire for experimentation and improvisation – has resulted in a 10-track journey encapsulating the full spectrum of Azymuth’s brilliantly coloured expressionist fusion.
This stream is free to watch, but these are extremely difficult times for an independent non-profit organisation like Band on the Wall, so any and all donations are welcome and enormously helpful.
