DJ, producer and digger Tahira features another eclectic and instructive DJing which blends genres and eras, from traditional sounds to the electronic mixtures from the DJ culture. His work is hugely influenced by African, Latin, Brazilian.
Tahira is a pioneer in bringing Brazilian sounds around the globe. Back in Brazil, where before European and American music was given focus, recently Brazil has begun to embrace their own traditions and sounds more and more. Tahira says:
We have a great musical culture! An amazing history. Brazil has at least 30 kind of rhythms. Styles like Carimbo, Maxixe, Lundu have existed since the last century. So we have a lot to discover about us. It’s like a therapy of self-knowledge. It’s time for Brazilians to look inside and discover our culture and then bring something good to share with the modern world.
