On January 26, 2019 we celebrated the 7th birthday of Shantisan’s ONE NOTE SAMBA Radio Show with a big birthday party at the FANIALIVE Vienna. The highlight was DJ Bunani’s DJ set. This stunning night was the birth of Our Latin Thing Vienna. Now you can listen to this unique set for the first time.
DJ Bunani developed out of a passion for Jazz an evergrowing interest for R’n’B, Soul, Funk, Latin and Bossa Nova. An actual music carrier started in 1982 as a Reggae DJ, later stepping into Soul and Funk with a touch of Latin, Boogaloo, Afro and Brasil.
Dj Bunani is a resident DJ at legendary Soul Sugar club in Vienna since about 22 years.
Parallel to his exceptional retro repertoire, he has gained recognition for his electronic selection, reflected by several international appearances as DJ Bunani. Between 2003 and 2007 he released the retro compilation series Recovered and Soul On Fire on SonyBMG.
DJ Bunani is a part of the project Pilots On Dope which released two albums on Jazz label Verve in 2014 and 2016. Pilots on Dope is a collaboration of Viennese DJs and producers Gerhard Gigler and Gerald Tomez. The emerging fusion marks the style of Pilots on Dope, an interpretation of classical brazilian repertoire in contemporary arrangements.
