THE ALBUM: ‘Sonzeira – Brasil Bam Bam Bam’

Gilles Peterson recently journeyed to Rio and assembled an amazing cast of Brazilian musicians – named collectively as ‘Sonzeria’ – to put together THE guide to Brazilian music for the discerning music lover. The record ‘Brasil – Bam Bam Bam’ is an incredible journey through the different flavours of authentic Brazilian music culture, from its majestic heritage to its super-dynamic present.

THE FILM: ‘Bam Bam Bam: The Story Of Sonzeira’

In keeping with the spirit of this unique and daring album, BOSH – the award-winning in-house production arm of ad agency, Mother London – captured Gilles’ trip. Their resident director and Brazilophile Charlie Inman, teamed up with resident Rio De Janiero film director Ben Holman, of Beija films, to co-direct and cover every element of Gilles trip. It was a wild journey deep into the favelas, through the world of Samba, and even introducing Gilles to some of the new emerging talent in Brazilian music.

Creating a colourful itinerary of people, places and events that passionately represents the real side of Brazilian culture and music: beyond the typical Football and Copacabana clichés. The result, ‘Bam Bam Bam: The Story of Sonzeira’, a film that shows both the music and the cultural journey that Gilles took during his time in Rio de Janeiro.
