Mas Aya (feat. Lido Pimienta) - Masters

Full review to follow. Pulling together friends and allies from across the musical spectrum, Healing Power's annual winter party didn't need a pre-announced list of performers to fill up the Southern Cross. The day started early, with cool DIY music and crafts on offer at a bazaar, and ended late with a dance party.

Heading right up to last call and beyond, the night ended with an extended solo set from Brandon Valdivia's solo Mas Aya project, though for most of it, he was joined by Lido Pimienta who added layers upon layers of vocals. Unlike the last time I saw a collaborative set like this, Valdivia didn't bring out even a stripped-down drum kit, creating all his rhythms on loops from his mini drum machine. It all added up to an intense dance groove to finish the night.

Bonus! I have a few more photos from the night posted on the MFS facebook page.
