Earshot Entertainment Presents:
A Brazilian Dance Party!
Grupo Da Seté
Join us Saturday May 14th for a night of amazing music, dancing and drumming! Surely an evening that you will not want to miss.
Forró Brazuca plays the sensuous upbeat sounds of northeastern Brazil like no other band on the West Coast. Inspired by the music of Luiz Gonzaga, Jackson do Pandeiro, Trio Virgulino and Dominguinhos.
Forró Brazuca performs Latin, folk and roots music at its festive, rollicking best! Formed by four San Francisco-based Brazilians—each from a different region of Brazil—in early 2007, this group has been bringing its accordion-powered dance music (very similar to zydeco and Cajun music) to venues all across the Bay Area.
Grupo Da Seté has been playing authentic Brazilian music direct from Rio de Janeiro - bossa nova, samba, pagode, chorinho, samba cancao. baiao to partying crowds for the last eight years. Featuring some of the finest musicians in the Bay Area (such as Fabricio Makarrinha, Alex and Marquinho Calatayud, Carlos Oliveira . . . ), the group is all about re-creating a typical lively evening in a Rio club - full of singing and dancing to the songs of Joao Bosco, Zeco Pagodinho, Jorge Aragao, Seu Jorge, Fundo de Quintal etc.
Sambaxé is a full force, energetic group of dancers that perform various Brazilian dance styles including Rio Carnaval style samba, Samba-Reggae, Axé, Frevo, Maculele and more. They perform at many different venues throughout the Bay Area. This Brazilian-inspired dance group performs alongside with Bateria ¡Blocura! a live percussion squad led by Alfie Macias along side Ron "SuperMan" Jackson and Alex Nunez.
