Flavia Coelho, who was born in Rio de Janeiro, combines her Brazilian roots and folk music styles, samba, bossa nova and hot or more modern baile funk with Caribbean influences, reggae and ragamuffin. The nomadic singer found a home in Paris. Her career began in the city, though after her 2011 debut and with a further three albums under her belt, she has also explored the world, and now arrives in Budapest together with Victor Vagh, her full-time producer. Their sound system blasts out sunshine music that features everything from roots reggae and cumbria to electronic sounds.

Flavia Coelho was born into a bohemian family. Her mother was a cabaret make-up artist and hairdresser, while her father collected folk music in the North-East part of Brazil, so it's no surprise that at the age of 14, Flavia also became a member of a travelling variety company. Later, she travelled from the Rio favelas to Europe, where Paris became the venue for her rebirth. As a child, in addition to the Brazilian influences of her homeland, Coelho was also captivated by Jamaican music - to the extent that she has dedicated her career to bringing the two worlds together. With Coelho, samba and reggae, bossa nova and ragamuffin collide, as indicated by the title of her first record: Bossa Muffin. In her songs, happiness and sunlight reign, though on her fourth and most recent full-length record, the 2019 DNA, she not only sings her soul out, but also reveals both her roots and the Brazilian reality, encompassing corruption, homophobia and racism. The singer - whose work is similar in mood to the world of Manu Chao, and who has also worked alongside afrobeat drummer Tony Allen and singer Cheikh Lô - has promised a new album for 2024, while her current tour pays tribute to Caribbean sound systems. At the concert, she will get herself and the audience moving through riddims, remixes and classic tracks from her previous three records.
