    Sónar by Night - Pavilhão Carlos Lopes by Estrella Damm

By Night/Saturday 9 April/Pavilhão Carlos Lopes by Estrella Damm

Dub and reggae might have emerged from Jamaica, but their international dimension has never been in doubt. They nestled in London, in Brooklyn and Queens, in Japan and across the world. Luso- Brazilian DJ Shaka Lion is a perfect manifestation of dub’s outward looking internationalism - outernationalism - a Brazilian who grew up Barreiro, obsessed with a sound that came from Jamaica. His own sets are resoundingly feel-good affairs mixing together reggae and dub, but also heartfelt soul, lazy hip-hop, star-gazing jazz and percussive club sounds from Lisbon and beyond. We’re thrilled to welcome him to Sónar Lisboa 2022.
