z’Bumba and MaracaBOOM! bring the rhythms of the Brazilian Northeast to the Pacific Northwest
A refreshing shot of sugar cane spirits in a whiskey-drowned town: z’Bumba plays Forró (fo-HOH), the rootsy, raw, and rebellious dance music from Brazil's Northeast. Shooting out synaptic-swift rhythms from a ringing triangle, z’Bumba layers in swirling accordion lines like sweet guava and holds it all down with a healthy dose of traditional percussion. São Paulo songstress Gabriella Tagliacozzo intones Portuguese poetry that sounds like a smile, often culminating in a gleeful full-band chorus.
One part Zydeco, one part Salsa, with a splash of Cumbia and a lime twist, Forró served up by z’Bumba is fun for all.
MaracaBOOM! performs the riveting, primal and joyous Maracatú drumming of Pernambuco, Brazil in a shifting rainbow of raucously bad posture and funk nasty. Get ready to get loud!
