Our Story

Started back in 2009 by three Bay Area vinyl collectors/DJs, Kento TanakaElan Kamesar, and Vanka, plus the musician/producer, Antonio Guedes, BRAZA! Productions have had glamorous highlights in its almost 7 years of activities. Grammy winning DJs have controlled BRAZA!’s console in an unprecedented fashion, bringing forward Brazilian/Latin flavored sets exclusively picked for the occasion. Names like: Nu-Mark (Jurassic Five), Spinna (BBE / Rawkus Records), DJ Nuts (Marcelo D2), Maga Bo (Tru Thoughts), Marcelinho da Lua (Bossacucanova), LEFTO (Blue Note), and so many other remarkable artists we are so proud to have worked with. In addition to that, the party was awarded SF Hottest Monthly Party, by SF Weekly readers, and it was the official music production company for the Macy’s Brasil Flower Festival, in 2012.

BRAZA! – an adaptation of the Portuguese word brasa, which means ember – started as a simple party, and became a full event production company that serves San Francisco and surroundings. It is not your typical top 40’s party. Well, perhaps because it selects not only today’s modern world sounds, but also hits that made your mom drop her panties in the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s – rare grooves, found only by those who dig deep into dusty crates from all over the planet.
