BLACK RIO - WHITE
The Afro-Brazilian culture which facilitated the black soul movement in Rio de Janeiro is known as “Black Rio.” They actually used the term ‘black’ to signify specifically this kind of cosmopolitan, urban culture that had its origins in the soul-culture of the United States in the 1960s and ’70s, inspired by artist like James Brown and Barry White to name a few.
This poster print shows the main artist that formed the movement during the mid 70’s Black Rio Movement. Big Boy was at the forth from of it all, djing the top parties and hosting the American artist when visiting Rio.
We pay tribute to the sound and vibe created by the artist and the people that made it become alive.
Obrigado Black Rio!
