TrocaBrahma 07 will synthesise the finest in established and emerging UK and Brasilian music talent for an incandescent series of must-see live shows, urban art and truly exclusive collaborations. It runs through London, Liverpool and Glasgow from July 26-29.

Converging a fiery cast of UK stars including champion rhapsodist King Creosote, electronic alchemist Four Tet, wily Welsh pop warlock Gruff Rhys (Super Furry Animals), global groove maharishi Gilles Peterson, JD Twitch clamouring party-starters Optimo and urban jungle wunderkind Ben Westbeech; and a blazing range of Brasilian luminaries such as psych-rock behemoths Os Mutantes, incendiary genre-benders Bonde do Role, counter-cultural superstar Tony da Gatorra, exquisite pop collective Open Field Church, celestial samba bard Romulo Froes, (and Favela sonic archivist Diplo), TrocaBrahma 07 is set to deliver an exhilarating culture jam of UK and Brasilian talent.

Much of the carnival's fruit will be borne from the TrocaBrahma Exchange: a project during which the aforementioned UK acts will visit Brasil in May to engage and create with like minded and unlikely indigenous counterparts.

Thus, expect an impassioned alliance of oddball arias and post-punk clatter from Gruff Rhys meets Tony da Gatorra; kaleidoscopic ghetto-pop chaos from Bonde do Role meet Radioclit / Amanda Blank; sublime Scottish folk and balmy bossa nova from King Creosote meets Romulo Froes; electronic wizardry and choral serenades from Four Tet meets Open Field Church; downtown samba-jazz and inner-city soul from Tita Lima meets Ben Westbeech; and ground-breaking mayhem from Tropicalia lodestars Os Mutantes with club-land tearaway JD Twich (Optimo).

All of the participating artists will re-converge in the UK to perform their unique collaborations live for the first time at TrocaBrahma. All artists will also perform full live sets during Julys chromatic festivities after which a related series of exclusive podcasts will be unveiled.

Aye, the Sunday night show will be a corker. If you've got the stamina Optimo will be on that night too. The Fruitmarket is fantastic venue too.

Cheers Chilli, but well pointed out also Lepeep.

Tried to ammend those ticketing details but the edit facility isn't showing for me -

not sure if the post is too old or something.

Shame about the Fopps, but hopefully they're not gone forever.

Tickets certainly not avialable from them at the moment right enough though - www.troacabrahma.com /

0870 2201116 or they're also available from the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall Box Office for the two Old Fruitmarket

shows.
