MAGA BO's work spans the breadth of international urban bass music. Jungle ragga, dub, dubstep, grime, hip hop, kwaito, baile funk, samba, rai, bhangra, cumbia, and skewed electronic beats all inform his selections and production work. His live performances are a hybrid mix of DJ set and live P.A., where he mixes diverse sounds culled from pirate cassettes bought on the street in various parts of the world, MP3s from the internet, obscure vinyl found in underground shops, original beats, unreleased remixes and exclusive tracks. Divergent sources are combined and mixed live in a dubwise fashion with a DJ's feel for the dance floor and the hip hop mentality of creating by re-contextualizing. Projected video and photo images from his travels and recording sessions bring an extra visual dimension to the music. Maga Bo has played guerilla gigs in an industrial complex in São Paulo, a boat in the North Sea, and an improvised pirate-powered sound system on the streets of Rio de Janeiro during Carnival. Some of his more visible appearances include Club Transmediale in Berlin, an official showcase at WOMEX 2009, 2010 Funkhaus Europa showcase at RUHR in Germany, The Sydney Festival in Australia, Fabric in London, Turntables on the Hudson in New York City, The Chicago World Music Festival, Pop Montreal in Canada, and the Mundial Festival in Holland. His musical collaborators are also spread out throughout the world: Xuman of Pee Froiss in Dakar, Teba and Max Normal of Cape Town, Mr. Catra and Marcelo Yuka of Rio de Janeiro, Kalaf of Buraka Som Sistema from Lisbon, Moroccan hip hop masters Bigg and K-Libre, Barcelona-based luddite laptopist Filastine, His recent work includes remixes and production for Ninja Tune, Cumbancha, Urban World, Gold Dust/K7, African Dope Records, as well as collaborations with Mulatu Astatke in Addis Ababa for the film Lalumbe, a sound track production with Bollywood singers Shilpa Rao and Pankaj Awasthi, and touring as electronics DJ/beat controller in Issa Bagayogo's band. Traveling often and widely, he stays in one place for weeks at a time, connecting and collaborating with local musicians and vocalists. His methods are simple and effective: armed with a laptop, and a microphone, he can turn any hotel room into his recording studio. Electronic acquaintances and friends of friends in person become musical conspirators, teachers and friends. Over time, a deep musical landscape is being created that is the collective imprint of Maga Bo’s community, world music with a truly global reach. Vocals recorded in one-room studios with a microphone taped to a refrigerator (in lieu of a stand) get released on the internet and over local sound systems the same night. And by the next day, the track has been sampled again by guys on the other side of the world and mashed up with whatever local concoctions they've got going on. Maga Bo is tapped into and part of this immense sonic zone.
