A new project from Rafa Dias and Ricô Santana, two veterans of the urban music scene in Bahia, Brazil (of ÀTTØØXXÁ and OQuadro respectively), produced in collaboration with Chief Boima, a veteran of the US's global electronic music scene, Ziminino is a pan-African musical force. Hard to categorize stylistically, the project is a vehicle to explore the relationships between different cultures and peoples scattered across the African diaspora. Afro Brazilian roots meet hip hop, funk Carioca, acoustic guitar driven Musica Popular Brasilera, electronic dance, Afropop and even rock. This project would fit in a vast range of tastes, and speak to an audience in a range of languages. What we hope is that it will attract fans looking for something new, original and even challenging!
