Disco Safari

world music Dj set

The main entrance for events is via delle Cascine n. 33

A journey through the sounds and rhythms of far away places, every Wednesday from 26 June to 17 July at the Cortile della Ciminiera at Manifattura. Guiding us will be DJ and producer Biga and guests, with a different set of expert hands on the musical tiller each night, playing music from three continents, from Brazil to Pakistan and back again.

guest: Peba Tropikal



For more than 10 years, Peba Tropikal has been digging through the crates to unearth the rare forgotten gems of Brazilian music, specialising in Soul, Funk, Disco, and Boogie, as well as Samba and Samba-Rock.

Peba spends his days generously sharing this vast knowledge with whoever happens to pass by Patuá Discos in São Paulo, one of the best record shops in the city, an institution for the area’s vinyl-heads, and a site of pilgrimage for passing international DJs. It’s team has been more or less behind every compilation of Brazilian music over the last 10 years.

By night, Peba regularly plays out around São Paulo and is the founder of nights such as Funky Nuggets, Veneno Soundsystem and ZumZumZum, as well as being a resident at Boteco Pratododia. His sets have taken him all over Brazil, South America and Europe.
