The last ever Soul, Baby, Soul! party is cause for sadness and celebration in equal measure, but for the duration of this weekend's blowout at Santa Teresa's favourite 'secret' venue Casa do Barão, the emphasis will be placed squarely on the latter. Across the road from the perfect warm-up Bar do Mineiro, the former school with the dungeon-like dancefloor should fit the bill nicely, big enough for the funky hoards to be able to get their groove on, but with plenty of atmosphere built in to the crumbling walls.
Headed up by the son of legendary local discoteque pioneer Big Boy, Leandro Peterson, Sir Dema and Lucio Branco, the DJs are sure to be dusting off the classics that have been getting the faithful followers moving for the six years of SBS!'s existence. In other words, plenty of Fred Wesley, Bobby Byrd, Fatback Band and Lynn Collins, making it impossible not to get on down.
