And Warung flew last week thousands of kilometres from its homeland, Camboriú, to Manaus, the Amazon capital, for another stop of the project Warung Tour. The rave took place at Hotel Tropical, an amazing building carved in the middle of the largest forest on the planet. Who played? Brazilian Daniel Kuhnen and Brit Rowan Blades. What a breathtaking scenario for a par-tee!
It’s important to note some cultural differences between the North, where Manaus is, and the South, where Camboriú (and us!) is situated. Our country has dimensions of a continent and the regions and the culture differ in the same proportion. Differently from most European countries, Brazil is industrial and cold below; hot and turistic above. The club scene is strongly developed down here since late 80′s/early 90′s, whereas the North is best known for hosting some of the biggest and most incredible regional and folklorical parties in the world, like Parintins and infamous Carnival in Bahia. Gathering 2,000 people to an electronic music event until the early hours is a great achievement. Thumbs up, boyz!
