About La Troya.
“La Troya” is widely regarded as the most original, and the best party in Ibiza. For over thirty years it has been guided by one man with an exceptional vision of what a night out can be. The creator of this landmark is Brasilio de Oliveira, himself a legend in the club world of Ibiza and beyond. Starting with the parties he created at Ku-Ibiza and Ku-Privilege, he has devoted more than 30 years of his life to producing events and bringing people together. He has become the most senior, respected and beloved promoter on the island. Brasilio originally conceived “La Vaca Asesina” long ago in Ku (today Privilege), later relocating it to Amnesia with the name “La Troya Asesina.” Soon partygoers started calling it simply “La Troya”. The party moved again to Space Club 2006-2008, where was called “The home of La Troya,” and then back to Amnesia as “La Troya Ibiza” from 2009-2015. Now, Brasilio presents “La Troya” at Space Club again, every Wednesday for 18 weeks from June 1st until September 28th 2016.
Brasilio’s nights in “La Troya” have brought happiness, magic, illusion and a feeling of transcendence to the more than 7000 visitors from all around the world. Why not come along and join them? Brasilio also was a pioneer of the parades of dancers in the streets of Ibiza, which have now become synonymous with the party culture of Ibiza throughout the world. Those parades began at Montesol in the centre of Ibiza town, and were very theatrical performances. Some costumes and routines were so crazy that they provoked calls to the police and ambulance services. Many legendary nights still live vividly in the memory: the first ‘Tanga’ (G-string) night, the ‘Noche Invertida’ (cross-dressing) night, ‘Fort Ku’; ‘White Fool Moon’; ‘Flower Power’; ‘Babylonia’; ‘The Temple of Love’; ‘Hell’; ‘Fake’; ‘Prison’; ‘Psychiatric Hospital’; ‘Calcuta’; ‘Brasil’; ’La Vaca Asesina’; ‘The Home Of La Troya; these are just some of the unforgettable nights that Brasilio created in the long course of his career. Brasilio also brought to Ibiza more then 200 internationals artists including: Talk Talk; Ian Dury; James Brown; Freddy Mercury; Suzanne Vega; Spandau Ballet; Brian Adams; Natalie Cole; Joe Cocker; Gloria Gaynor; Fine Young Cannibals; Matt Bianco; Marillion, Chris Rea; Duran Duran; Divine; Silvester; 808 State; The Farm; Adamsky; Front 242; Happy Mondays; Kylie Minogue; M People, and many many more. Brasilio’s flamboyant style is clearly influenced by home country, Brazil, with immense and spectacular decorations reflecting the colours, materials and vitality of that wild nation.
The V.I.P. section has provided many famous and important people with the opportunity to either mix with the crowd or remain in complete privacy, while being able to enjoy the party to its fullest without being bothered. Brasilio sometimes draws on current affairs from local and international news as a source of inspiration when creating parties anew each summer. This has made the parties an under-the-radar forum for social and political comment on issues of the day. His cryptic phrases at the end of his flyers are understood only by those who have learned his personal codes over years. The long-term evolution of “La Troya” represents a process of artistic development through the mind of an artist, even though that artist has kept mostly behind the scenes and is still largely unfamiliar to the public. But the artist has always loved to watch from the sidelines how his creation, his collaborators and his friends grew along with his imagination and vision over a period of three decades. “La Troya” is the most original party on the island, unique to Ibiza!
