BaianaSystem at Bananada Festival
Blending the sounds of reggae, dub, hip-hop and afrobeat into a fantastic Bahian groove.
For the better part of a decade, BaianaSystem, based in Salvador, Bahia, have spread and explored new possibilities through the sounds of the guitarra Baiana. This instrument is a critical component of Salvador’s music scene – particularly during Carnaval – and it’s no surprise that BaianaSystem focuses around it. In 2016 the group gained international visibility with the track “Playsom,” from its sophomore record, Duas Cidades. In this session, the Brasileiros perform a highly anticipated set on their home turf.
