This week's issue of Phoenix New Times features a profile on local DJ Seduce, a.k.a Miguel Ivery, who has been bringing Afro-Brazilian sounds to the Valley for the past five years. Seduce recently released Brazil:Sambossica 3, a compilation of up-and-coming Brazilian artists he wanted to introduce to the rest of the world.
You can download the song "O Pescador," by Sandalia de Prata, for free here.
If you'd like to support Seduce this weekend, check out his Summer Samba event this Friday, June 10, at Mijana in Tempe. There will be music by Som Brasil, Axe Folclorico and Seduce, plus free samba dancing lessons and drink specials. Tickets are $8, and doors open at 9 p.m. For more info, go here.
The event is a precursor to Brazilian Day Arizona. Get a peek of what to expect by checking out the video for last year's event below.
