Antonio Guedes & The Chillaquiles
Antonio Guedes & The Chillaquiles
Antônio Guedes & The Chilaquiles is a funk-rock-disco-ska-jam-pop band from San Francisco, CA. The lead singer, Antônio Guedes, brings forward various Brazilian influences into his compositions, blending it with others from around the globe, like Afrobeat, American soul, and Latin Jazz, with a psychedelic music twist that suggests to the audience Sergio Mendes, Jerry Garcia, Jorge Ben and Fela Kuti could all be playing in the same band.

The group was founded in 2012. After a few remarkable shows, they stopped performing due to Guedes’ return to Brazil, where he was living for two years. Not too long ago, in 2015, making his way back up to North American shores, Antônio decided to bring The Chillaquiles band back in action, along with his party/production company BRAZA!. Both band and party have been catching the ears (and the feet) of a fast growing fanbase by producing prestigious nights of funky tropical gatherings, which in the past have awarded him for Hottest Monthly Party by SF Weekly readers.
Maracatu Pacífico
Maracatu Pacífico
Hailing from West Oakland, Maracatu Pacífico is a community-based performance group that brings Afro-Brazilian maracatu music and dance from Northeastern Brazil to the SF Bay Area.

Maracatu Pacifico was founded as Bateria Lucha and Maracatu Luta under former director Derek Wright in the early 2000s, playing at the huge anti-war marches in the run up to the Iraq war. The group was reborn as Maracatu Pacifico in 2012 under the leadership of current director Eric Hoffman, who has continued the group’s value for community and personal development through the study and performance of maracatu. Our community is a very diverse group united in our passion for this music genre.
DJ Elan Kamesar
DJ Elan is a native of San Francisco but his coração is definitely Brazilian. He's made frequent pilgrimages to Brazil over the past 15 years digging for records everywhere from São Paulo to the backwaters in the Amazon, and his collection is nothing short of World class. He is one of the founding members of the BRAZA! crew and it has always been the perfect showcase for his tasty selections from the land of samba e futebol. Expect to dance to deep rare grooves, classic samba rhythms and contemporary Brazilian flavored remixes.
