"SambadÁ Mucho AxÉ"

SambadÁ Mucho AxÉ
Friday, Apr 17 9:00p
at Ashkenaz, Berkeley, CA

For Santa Cruz-based SambaDá, founded in 1997 by native Brazilian Papiba Godinho, every night is Carnaval....

Led by lead vocalist-composer Pepa Quiroga and guitarist-singer-composer-arranger Edgar Macchiavello, Mucho Axé's goal is unifying peoples and cultures. Their music brings together genres and grooves from South America and beyond: from various folkloric rhythms (including tango) to samba and bossa nova, and from mambo and cha-cha-cha to reggae and ska. They have enjoyed developing their concept of "reggae en español," which includes reworkings of various Bob Marley songs. Mucho Axé's repertoire includes traditional songs and original music and poetry with lyrics in Spanish, Portuguese and English. They are versatile enough to perform in incarnations ranging from the duo of Pepa and Edgar to a 7-piece band; tonight's set will feature the full band.
