Feeling a bit camera shy


Mbrascatu is a fusion of the cobbled streets and cafs of the Old World and the creative melting pot of Portland. Pronounced mm-brah-ska-too, the name is actually the nickname of Andrea Algieris grandfather, the man who gave him his first guitar.  Altough spending the most part of his life in Italy between his hometown Luzzi (Calabria) and Florence, Algieri currently makes his home in Portland, Oregon. His winding journey to the states gave Andrea the opportunity to travel and perform his music though Europe and Latin America.

The band, is a group of talented musicians that draw from very different musical backgrounds to create a unique sound encompassing European and American roots.

Although the name Mbrascatu is relatively new, the band itself has been gradually forming since the summer of 2010. Andrea began collaborating with Portland drummer Mathieu Lewis-Rolland. The band took on a fuller sound with the addition of Bassist Mike Doherty. Dylan Dean (violin) met Mbrascatu months later. Johnny Sabestinas (ukulele, electric guitar, and lap steel) was the final addition. The bass player Dan Sullivan joined the band in 2012.

Since forming Mbrascatu has performed extensively throughout the Pacific Northwest at bars, clubs and outdoor festivals.
