AFROPUNK Bahia 2022
More than a movement
An ancestral meeting
More than a party
More than a festival
Living AFROPUNK is unmatched.
In 2022, we come even stronger, insurgent and revolutionary! AFROPUNK Bahia will continue to boost the strength and beauty of the coupling of rhythms, experiences and cultures, creating an epic event.
AFROPUNK Bahia’s quilombo is the place where our people express themselves in our diaspora trail in a radical act of self-love: forming a black circle in the blackest city outside Africa.
Circle of Samba, circle of Capoeira, Circle of Punk, and Circle of Xirê. Our circle has never stopped spinning since we got here. We will keep on spinning, breaking down borders, celebrating the gathering of generations and artistic expressions, praising the protagonists of blackness, uniting great talents to a legacy of history of fight and resistance.
We have a path of surprises ahead. Get ready!

AFROPUNK Bahia 2021
In AFROPUNK, the big stars are in the audience, casting their glow of beauty to the four corners of the globe. Then, the #BlackCarpet was born: a space to exalt the different ways of expressing black beauty.
Asking permission of those who paved the way, there were meetings of different Brazilian black music generations, organized in a unique format adopted by the Brazilian edition. In this wheel, pioneers perform with black exponents of the contemporary music scene. The audience celebrated living ancestors, honoring their trajectories and recognizing their power.
AFROPUNK & Quabales
All income from ticket sales was donated to the project that was born in the “Nordeste de Amaralina”, peripheral neighborhood of Salvador, and has promoted, for more than 20 years, the fusion between Bahian percussion and the language of STOMP. Including music theory, guitar, percussion, break dance, percussive performance, singing and electronic percussion, its differential is the production of unconventional musical instruments using recycled material – it is transforming garbage into culture, providing young people from the outskirts with the opportunity to learn and practice of an innovative aesthetic in the national art scene.
AFROPUNK BAHIA honored the legacy of those who came before and those who are here, exalting memory, bringing new interpretations of the past and building futures from the sharing and construction of affection, autonomy and power.
Occupying screens beyond the “black screens”
As it’s a Festival planned a long time ago, interrupted by a Pandemic and still being born in a context that inspired care, AFROPUNK Bahia was, at first, designed in a 100% digital format. However, we wanted more than a broadcasted concert or recorded content. We wanted to give rise to a new movement. The format changed, during the collective construction, with the allowed releases, but the aim remained the same: to take the message to the whole diaspora, gather and celebrate.
APBA Open Call
Bringing together afro-indigenous artists from all corners of Brazil, AFROPUNK Bahia has become a showcase for audiovisual content that expresses the spirit of the movement. The result? More than 400 projects submitted to the Public Call that celebrate creativity and ancestry in innovative and creative ways.
