Afon Sistema

This high-energy band pump out addictive beats and rich, hypnotic rhythms guaranteed to get you up on your feet. Afon Sistema play Maracatu, Samba’s earthier cousin from Northern Brazil, and from studying with the best musicians in Recife, their rhythms are authentic, with their own special Bristol flavour. Traditional songs with haunting harmonies and whirling dancers with dazzlingly colourful skirts complete the picture, making this a feast for all the senses.

Check them out here playing at Valley Fest last year
