João Pessoa, Paraíba, BRA

Cabruêra is a band showing the other side of Brazil’s rich music scene beyond Bossa and Samba. Based in the dry and barren region of Northeast Brazil, Cabruêra spices up the rural rhythms with all the urban styles you love to groove to. Considered as the “…coolest underground group in that crazy wonderful country.” this band is a journey to an undiscovered music continent. Ball pen guitars, pulsating bass lines and electronic percussion tides up with the Brazilian Cliché.



What is Cabrura? A bunch of goats? The Gang of famous Brazilian Rebell Lampiao? A Brazilian band that is more than samba and bossa?
Yes! All of this is true.
The name Cabrura derives from the term of a bunch of goats, Cabras also known as the gang of Lampiao, the Robin Hood of the Northeast of Brazil. The fundament of this expression is based on the resistance of the animal and the gang of Lampiao. Their extraordinary ability to adapt to difficult circumstances.
The goat is an animal which resists the drought by engulfing everything. Equal to the goats, Cabrura engulfs everything musicaly, digesting and vomiting it through technological resources.
This skill comes out of their native ancestors and the African slaves who were forced to adapt the culture of the colonialists.
Time has passed but the ability to engulf other cultures and movements is still alive.
This is why Brazilian culture is still so colourful and rich.
The band gathers their sound out of different sources, from Brazilian rhythms like Coco, Ciranda, Embolado, Forro, Maracatu and Samba and urban styles from Rock to Funk, Rap and Electro.
Sometimes the music turns into psychedelic and progressive. Primarily when the singer uses a simple ballpen to create a unique guitar sound, never heard before, somehow magic. Experimental but extremely danceable and as they say in the Northeast of Brazil: able to awake the deceased
At present Cabrura released their 5th album in Brazil, which was sponsored by Petrobras Cultural the most important cultural Patronize in Brazil.
After numerous Festival performances in several European countries like, Germany, Switzerland, France, Portugal, UK, Czech Republic, Denmark, Belgium, Netherlands, Italy, Cabrura is more than prepared to take off for their sixth international Tour, to celebrate a Brazil beyond Copacabana Postcards and Football.

"A full blend of rock, funk, jazz, rap, reggae - you name it, they absorb and regurgitate it in a exhilarating, whipped-up, eclectic mix of all possible worlds. Great musical colors and imaginative production make for an up-beat, quasi-psychedelic experience."
