Monday’s Rio Nightlife Pick – R4 Life presents reggae and dub on Monday nights at Leviano. In the samba-dominate neighborhood of Lapa, this party is one of the first and best to drive the genres of reggae and dub and has become increasingly popular.
Via-Jah is a traditional reggae band, born in Niteroi in 2001 by vocalist Thiago Alves Moura and bassist Cícero Dias Silva. As the band grew, their music, lyrics and good humor became well known, with hits such as “Sino” , “Dom”, and “Gentileza”, which earned them the most successful reggae production on 2010 by the public.
