Brazilian sensation brings fresh tropicália to Amsterdam Roots Festival.

Discover the exciting sounds of Bala Desejo at Amsterdam Roots Festival! This dynamic quartet from Rio de Janeiro brings a breath of fresh air to the Brazilian music scene and will have their Dutch premiere at our festival. With their unique blend of tropicália, jazz and psychedelic influences from the 60s and 70s, Bala Desejo will take you on a musical adventure that is both nostalgic and surprisingly new.

In 2021, Dora Morelenbaum, Julia Mestre, Lucas Nunes and Zé Ibarra began making music together and released their highly successful debut album SIM SIM SIM on Coala Records in 2022. With lush guitar patterns, warm grooves, jazzy brass riffs and impressive vocal harmonies, Bala Desejo creates contemporary tropicália with an organic sound and experimental spirit. The album was awarded a Latin Grammy and their energetic concerts at major festivals have impressed worldwide.
