Tour Information
DJ Tahira (Brazil)DJ, producer and music lover Tahira is one of São Paulo’s hardest working and highly esteemed DJs and music collectors.

Whereas most diggers of Brazilian music tend to gravitate towards regional takes on American funk & soul Tahira squares in on the country’s rich musical lineage as part of the greater African diaspora, with a pronounced emphasis on African rhythms. Tahira connects the dots between the country's rich musical history, carving out an alternate trajectory for black Brazilian culture that values afro-futurism over copycat funk/soul aesthetics.

Tahira is famed for his dj-mixes & edits of musical treasures from the vast canon of Brazilian music, among these his take on Gilberto Gil's famous ode to the ladies of Bahia: »Toda Menina Baiana« which was approved by the legend himself and has become a classic.Tahira released in 2018 his first compilation via Cologne-based Jazz & Milk label: »Levanta Poeira (Afro- Brazilian music & rhythms from 1976 – 2016)« highlights a few Afro-Brazlian gems from Tahira’s DJ-sets and encompasses a variety of Brazil’s regional musical styles influenced by African and Amerindian forms while blending genres and eras in a typical Tahira style.
