Bam Bam Bam: The Story of Sonzeira + Gilles Peterson Q&A Cert. 15 Picture house at FACT

  • Released2014
  • Running time75 minutes
  • DirectorCharlie Inman, Ben Holman
  • CastGilles Peterson

Gilles Peterson recently journeyed to Rio and assembled an amazing cast of Brazilian musicians - collectively named ‘Sonzeira’ - to put together THE guide to Brazilian music for the discerning music lover. The record ‘Brasil - Bam Bam Bam’ is an incredible journey through the different flavours of authentic Brazilian music culture, from its majestic heritage to its super-dynamic present.

In keeping with the spirit of this unique and daring album, BOSH - the award-winning in-house production arm of ad agency, Mother London - captured Gilles’ trip. Their resident director and Brazilophile Charlie Inman, teamed up with resident Rio De Janeiro film director Ben Holman, of Beija films, to co-direct and cover every element of Gilles trip. It was a wild journey deep into the favelas, through the world of Samba, and even introducing Gilles to some of the new emerging talent in Brazilian music.

Creating a colourful itinerary of people, places and events that passionately represents the real side of Brazilian culture and music: beyond the typical football and Copacabana clichés, the resulting film shows both the music and the cultural journey that Gilles took during his time in Rio.
