Back by popular demand! It’s a head-on celebration of countrified licks and samba grooves, rolling drums and quicksilver accordion licks, Brazilian beats and Southern roots. It’s the joyous, ebullient music that weaves a brilliant tapestry of sound; it’s the Appalachian-gone-Afro-Brazilian band Matuto (“bumpkin” in Brazilian slang). Think music that moves seamlessly in a two-step between bluegrass and forró, between the high lonesome and the wah-wah of the berimbau. This New York-based six-piece group of musical alchemists cast their spell on us in 2013, and now Rob Curto (accordion), Clay Ross (guitar) and their talented cohorts are back with their intoxicating, dance-inspiring, rootsy magic.
