On October 22, “Rádio Silva”, an online program on YouTube by singer Silva, premiered. In each episode, the artist invites a DJ to make a mix of songs that have directly and recently inspired him.
The first episode, lasting 58 minutes, features Feminine Hi-Fi, a collective of female DJs from São Paulo. The program features a mix of Jamaican “pre-reggae” genres, such as Ska and Rocksteady.
Return to radio
The conception of the radio came from Silva's intention to return to a more “traditional” way of discovering music. Before streaming platforms, discovering a new song was only possible from record stores, tapes and CDs, specialized magazines or, mainly, via radio. Thus, Rádio Silva was born, as a way for the public to discover new music and other artists.
