Born and raised in a multi-ethnic household, Bill de Brasil was exposed to a wide variety of music: Jazz, R&B, Blues, Reggae, Calypso, Merengue, Bossa Nova, Disco, and Fusion. Bill embraced the complicated rythms and ethnic vibes while learning to become a drummer and percussionist. His DJ’ing style incorporates his love and appreciation of his musical upbringing. His weekly show, “Porto Da Alma Vivo” or “The Port of Soul” will showcase Bill’s mixing skills and his love for all of the music he embraced while growing up.
