Johnny Hooker on Thursday 20th June 2019

Johnny Hooker, a performer and songwriter from Brazil who was awarded Best Male performer at the Brazilian Music Awards with his first album. His unique take on Brazilian pop music is incredible, mixing local rhythms such as samba, brega, frevo, guitarrada and axe music.

This is a one off exclusive live show so tickets will go quickly...

Johnny Hooker is a performer and songwriter from Pernambuco/Brazil that describes himself as “a fierce woman in a man’s body with tearful eyes”.

He was awarded “Best Male Performer” at the “Brazilian Music Awards” and dazed the musical industry with his first solo album “Eu Vou Fazer uma Macumba pra te Amarrar, Maldito!”, which was chosen as one of the best albums of the year by Rolling Stone magazine. With it, he led us through a journey into passionate love stories in the city of Recife with a combination of rhythms.

Johnny blends local styles like samba, brega, frevo, guitarrada and axé music, seeking to reestablish the identity of his own country and composing unapologetic Northeastern songs that challenge gender and Brazilian expressions.
