Meta meta in Concert : 1st December

Meta meta in Concert : 1st December

A first really serious contender for 2014's album of the year” - Independent on Sunday

"Metá Metá are a raucous trio intent on shattering images of Brazilian music” - The Wire


Metá Metá mix the spiritual and rhythmic foundations of candomble with influences ranging from Afrobeat to Afrosambas, punk rock to be-bop to create chaotic, life-affirming music that explodes with the rage of The Stooges and Sonic Youth, the spirituality of John Coltrane and Sun Ra and the wild, avant-garde instrumentation of contemporary experimental-psychedelic outfits such as Melt Yourself Down and Goat.

This is the ‘Afro-punk’ sound of Metá Metá - vocalist Juçara Marçal, saxophonist Thiago França and guitarist Kiko Dinucci – a trio of São Paulo’s most sought after musicians, struggling to survive the 21st century sonic schizophrenia of their home city.

Metá Metá’s second album, and debut for the Mais Um Discos label, MetaL MetaL launches itself from the ancient chants of the orixás into a dirty brew of psychedelic samba, distorted jazz and Afro-punk. The band are all followers of candomblé yet they do not use the orixás to preach certain beliefs but to provide a framework within which to tell their stories.

+ DJ support from Lewis Robinson (Mais Um Discos)

£10 adv / £13 on the door
