Samedia Shebeen: DJ Maga Bo

Samedia Shebeen brings the King of Brazilian Beats & Bass to Ediburgh for an unmissable session. Bring your feet and bring your waistline, its time to shake to the samba music but not as you know it jim.

“Speaker-bangin’ before all else” (XLR8R) with “some of the smartest ears in the game” (Chicago Reader), “few can make a room explode like Maga Bo” (Flavorpill). A purveyor of “international sonic weaponry and rhythm knowledge” (Rough Trade), the Rio de Janeiro-based DJ/producer is a veteran pioneer of global bass music, with 20+ years of dedicated experience searching out unheralded music bumping from speaker-boxes in the world’s grittiest corners, from Addis Ababa to Zanzibar.
