Xiame Dégas & Tropa (BR/DK)
A musical collaboration across cultures
Meet an original global music band that is a prime example of collaborating across cultures with surnames such as names Dégas, Bravo, and Sommer.
The fun-loving Afro-Brazilian music culture is the common denominator, which with rich harmonies, groovy rhythms, catchy melodies and authentic (Brazilian-Portuguese) lyrics is the backbone of the band's identity.
On the recent release LIVE 2018 from December 28, 2018, elements of the Nordic jazz sound have also been included, as this is also a part of Xiame Dégas & Tropa's cross-cultural crew.
Since the formation of the band in 2015, Xiame Dégas & Tropa have played on small and large stages, including at the Toldkammeret - Elsinore, Aarhus Festuge, Kontrast - Herning, CPH Jazz Festival, Galleri Rasmus - Odense, Jamdays - Odense, Copenhagen World Music Festival and, with this concert, now also on Klostertorvet during the Aarhus Jazz Festival.
