(pe.ba) Brazil NE*, slang for poor quality, ordinary.
Pedro Marighella, curious about the definition of what fits the molds of good taste and passionate about urban popular music, decided to call himself “Som Peba”, in his music research, production and DJing.
He was a precursor in working with danceable and popular musical genres such as pagode, axé-music and arrocha, between electronic forms, creating panoramas that transit between the critical potential of fun and obscure analogies, looking for small ruptures in these genres as a means of basing his own identity and work. .
Among his main releases and performances are the compilation, Mafia do Dendê, 2022, Performance Templo, 2019, Projeto B_T_PGDÃO, 2016/2018, performances at Festival Dia da Música, 2017, and Festival Novas Frequências, 2014, in addition to the compilations Kafundó Vol. 1, Rolê: new sounds of Brazil, Hy Brazil Vol 4: Fresh Electronic Music From Brazil and BAHIA BASS, all in 2014.
