Looking forward to this happening on Thursday November 16! I’ve teamed up with an amazing musician friend, Bobby Easton. of the bands Delta Nove, Bloco Nove, Samba Society and event-headliners Os Zagueiros to help move his CASA DE BAMBA event from LA’s mid-city area east to Los Globos in Echo Park! You may also know Bobby as the mastermind of the Long Beach Funk Festival. I think it’ll be a great move for the event, bringing more Brazilian music and culture to another lively part of the city.
I’m excited by the opportunity to play more soul, funk and disco sounds from Brazil (and beyond), especially by artists like Tim Maia, Jorge Ben, Hélio Matheus, Gerson King Combo, Sandra de Sá, Paula Lima, Di Melo, and Trio Ternura in addition to the pagode and samba de coco sounds that I love. Opening up onstage will be LA’s all-female Afro-Brazilian percussion ensemble, BLOCO OBINI, summoning the graces of orixas with their big drum sounds.
