Adubadub with Projeto Sublime, Radio Rua, MC Lapide and Loty at Santa Teresa, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Rio de Janeiro has many places to go at night. This night I chose a party upon the hills of the charming neighborhood Santa Teresa. The event took place in a huge house with amazing garden around Almirante Alexadrino street. A place with beautiful people and a unique view over north side of the city.
Open air dance-floor surrounded by palms, good-quality soundsystem and the best musicians made this night more than wonderful.
Reggae parties in Brazil are completely different to European ones. It is much more common to play old Jamaican tunes from the 70’s and 80’s as well as remixes with traditional Brazilian music as Cachaca, which people from here love especially. Dancehall is far not as popular as Roots and Reggae music.
What to say about the musicians? Young, talented and open-minded people with positive energy serving sweet Reggae music with covers of Jamaican oldies. I, as a Reggae Ambassador for Irieunity, am really looking forward to the next event I am allowed to visit.
Below you can find an overview of the musicians from Adubadub party night.
