What started out in a flat in London’s Kensal Rise in 2009 has become a bit of a global phenomenon, bringing up-and-coming bands to small, secret venues in cities across the world. We salute Sofar Sounds – ‘Songs from a Room’ – for putting a bit of spontaneity back into live music, and we’ve loved squeezing onto sofas in São Paulo living rooms to watch eclectic line-ups go wild, or just gently sway, on stage (or, should we say, on the rug). Hosted usually on the last Monday of every month, the locations – announced a few hours beforehand – have included beauty salons, ateliers and clothing stores.
