Hailing from Rio de Janeiro but now based in Paris, nomadic singer-songwriter Flavia Coelho has won huge critical acclaim for her distinctive and delicious blend of samba, bossa nova, hip hop and a whole lot more. Bossa Muffin, her first album, was described by The Guardian as ‘one of the most joyful, easygoing fusion sets of the year’. Sonho Real, Coelho’s latest release, takes her unique sound a step further – and you can see her perform songs from it at this MIF17 exclusive set, her debut show in Manchester.
