Musicians in Residence: Brazil

Our Musicians in Residence programme, delivered in partnership with PRS Foundation, sends musicians from the UK to different locations around the world. The selected artists spend up to six weeks soaking up the culture, collaborating with local musicians and enriching their work. In 2017 and 2018, Tara Pattenden (AKA Phantom Chips), Nwando Ebizie (AKA Lady Vendredi) and Nathaniel Mann travelled to Brazil, spending their residencies in Rio de Janeiro, Recife and Mato Grosso respectively. There, they experienced the music and culture of Brazil in three very different ways – from the experimental electronic scene of bustling Rio during carnival, to the Xingu National Park and the music of the indigenous Wauja people. Experience Brazil through the curious eyes, ears and music of our residents as they spoke to Georgina Godwin in Manchester earlier this year.
