Bio

Cega Machado was inspired in a very hard to cut and resistent tree of the Cerrado (vegetation from the Center of Brazil), and as its name it is also the propose of the band: to be resistent to the massification imposed by the midia industry not compromised with the folk brazilian roots.

The band Cega Machado creates and perfoms contemporary instrumental music based on various rythms that are present in the Brazilian cultural manifestations, with emphasis in both afro-brazilian and regionalism culture from the center of Brazil, where pops up rythtms like catira, congada, pagode de viola, cururu, baião, frevo, maracatu, samba, afoxé, all that is present in the Cega Machado way of playing.

In addiction to the concerts the band make workshops of Brazilian percussion. In 2008's tour they have performed concerts and workshops in Switzerland and Portugal.
