Brixton Academy

March 2010

Racionais MC's have been developing social work geared to the deprived communities situated in the outskirts of São Paulo. The project includes school visits and lectures on drugs, police brutality, racism and other themes. The group's lyrics include slang language and idioms typical of these poor areas. The album "Sobrevivendo no Inferno" made Racionais famous and sold 500,000 copies. Still, the group adopted a dubious attitude in relation to the media and the record industry, which they regard as part of the system they fight against.

Martinho da Vila

Martinho da Vila is regarded as the greatest living samba singer. He began singing and composing in the late 1960s and has been releasing many albums since then. When he was first invited into a recording studio, he didn't want to sing at all.  He says: "I kept telling the record executives:  I am a composer and not a singer. I just want to write material for other singers".  Finally, after a series of arguments, they convinced the young Martinho to record a test track. His cool and smooth voice, combined with a suave spontaneous wit has kept him at the top of Brazil's music scene for more than three decades.
