Productions Nuits d’Afrique presents Flavia Coelho in concert at Le Ministère, with the DJs of Tupi Collective in 1st part, from 8:30 PM.



After her highly acclaimed performance in 2018 on the main stage of the Festival International Nuits d’Afrique, FLAVIA COELHO returns for an exceptional Sound System.

Flavia has traveled all over the world, from the morros of Rio de Janeiro to the cobblestone streets of Paris. On her latest album DNA, just like on stage, she unfolds her being and her soul!

In the tradition of the Jamaican soundsystems which rocked her childhood in the North-East of Brazil, Flavia will swing her flows on original riddims, remixes and classics, from Roots Reggae to Cumbia through more electro sounds. A ray of sunshine, an invitation to dance!

These distant horizons have nourished DNA – Flavia Coelho’s most personal and universal album. Recorded between the Latin Quarter and the Var, Victor Vagh-Weinmann’s two studios, it shines by its musical hybridity.

The baile funk crosses the trap and the Caribbean music, the cumbia is reinvented, the hip hop marries the reggae, the Orchestre de chambre de Paris passes by… All carried by an impressive pop will. “Popular music is the people, and I am a woman of the people,” says Flavia.

Here, she confirms her visceral commitment on melodies as catchy as the rhythms. “It is very South American to sing very dark things on festive music,” she recalls.

Faced with the meanders of Brazilian political news, the most French of Brazilian singers has freed her voice. And always in Portuguese, her mother tongue.è



The evening will begin at 8:30 pm with the DJs of Tupi Collective, the vinyl collecting duo offers an amalgam of new and old school Brazilian rhythms, and mixes a diaspora of styles, taking their fans on a tropical journey.
