£12 Advance £15 Door
The Tropical Balkan project Theo Mizú & Banda features an original mix of eastern and western musical references, promising a groovy musical journey around the world. The project has been elected as the Best Street Band in São Paulo, and has performed in festivals and venues around Brazil, Southeast Asia and Europe.
Theo Mizú is a composer and multi-instrumentalist from São Paulo, Brazil, who started his career at the age of 19 in Northern Thailand. With a dream of traveling the world and his love for music, Theo chose the road as home, living and traveling with his music around Southeast Asia and Europe for most of his 20’s.
With the opportunity to get in contact with many musical/cultural references while traveling, Theo started developing a mixed sound between his new discoveries and his Brazilian music background, connecting Baião to Balkan through the power of dance, a universal language and a human’s natural instinct.
Returning to Brazil, Theo started writing band arrangements for his compositions, and after playing them on busking sessions they were elected the Best Street Band in São Paulo in his first year of band. Since then Theo has been playing his music with varied musicians in festivals and venues all around the world.
The “Tropical Balkan Tour 2023” will be Theo’s third tour in the UK, completing almost 100 gigs including Bearded Theory Festival, Balter Festival, Buddhafield, the Barrel House Totnes [SOLD OUT], Cornish Bank and the Hootananny Brixton.
