Brazilian Queer Tropical Fusion singer and composer Johnny Hookerpresents his second album "Coração" in Berlin supported by legendary Berliner drag queen Gloria Viagra and Mash-Up - Multigender / Multiworld collective with its crew and Dj Grace Kelly

Presented by BOSSA FM - www.bossafm.com l @bossafmoficial

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 Award” and dazed the musical industry with his first solo album “Eu Vou Fazer uma Macumba pra te Amarrar, Maldito!” that was chosen as one of the best albums of the year by Rolling Stone magazine.

Johnny blends local rhythms 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.

After becoming a social media hit and touring around Brazil for two years, Johnny Hooker released his second album “Coração”.

“Coração” is a deeper immersion into Brazilian and Latin music appreciation that follows Hooker’s work trademark, an ongoing audible, visual and performative exploration. On the previous album, “Eu Vou Fazer uma Macumba pra te Amarrar, Maldito!”, the performer and songwriter led us through a journey into passionate love stories in the city of Recife with a combination of rhythms from brega to blues and frevo. This time, however, the artistic direction turned to a combination of “Tropicalismo” and the American Blue-eyed Soul. “Like if Caetano Veloso and David Bowie had a son in Recife”, say Johnny.

Johnny will present his work for the first time in Berlin, Lisbon, Porto and Barcelona.

ABOUT ¡MASH-UP! 
¡MASH-UP! – Multigender / Multiworld is a queer collective from Berlin. Since 2011 the collective organises big and small parties, also taking part with a bombastic truck in the annual alternative LGBT*QI rally in Kreuzberg (now called X*CSD). 

Whether in the streets or in the clubs, ¡MASH-UP! offers a powerful line-up of sexy-political live concerts, performances, non-mainstream DJs, video-art, delicious veggie-food, haircuts and many other nice things, infecting the crowd with lots of positive energy and messages. Our goal is to bring some good vibes into the political queer scene of Berlin and try to act as a melting pot. 

Vive la différence! The collective is a bunch of people of different nationalities, colours, creeds and backgrounds. They live and love life, diversity, intersections and multiple identities, walking through different spheres at the same time. ¡MASH-UP! – Multigender / Multiworld is a platform to get together, exchange ideas, feel good, have fun and empower transtropical, postcolonial and nonconformist queers and their friends. We dream of a world without borders.
