Job de Wit, Film and music ambassador
Renaissance man of Brazilian funk-pop Marcos Valle has been winning over the hearts and ears of people everywhere since the 1960s. His totally summer, groovy ‘70s sound is a concoction of funk, bossa nova, jazz and samba. Valle has worked with fellow Brazilian greats Sérgio Mendes and Astrud Gilberto and has written music for telenovelas. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see Valle live on this end of the planet.
Job de Wit (1971) is a self-diagnosed sufferer of xenomania: the insatiable need to consume the unknown. And we couldn’t be happier about it, because Job has a keen eye for all things edgy, great, poppy and artistic.
Job has been working as a music journalist for decades. He worked at VPRO, was an editor for music magazine Oor, was editor-in-chief of State Magazine (hip hop) and DJBroadcast (dance) and wrote a book about the beginnings of dance in Holland, entitled Roxy and the house revolution. The past years has seen him delve deeper into film. Today he organises the recurring night Fullscreen in De Balie about video clips and writes about music in film for Cineville.
