The heartbeat of Nation Beat’s sound lies in an original 21st century mash up between the thunderous Brazilian maracatu drumming and New Orleans second line rhythms. It is also the vibrant force of their explosive live show, which is frequently known to burst into crowd-wide Carnival-style drumming and singing. An American/Brazilian collective, Nation Beat belongs to both sides of the equator.
Alma Tropicália is the only band this side of Rio reimagining the psych-samba sounds of 60’s tropicália music from Brazil, a mind-bending mix of tropical rhythms, soulful funk grooves, and day-glo psychedelia that has quickly earned the young group ecstatic reviews and packed performances across the region. The band's daring lineup combines a masterful Brazilian vocalist with the unhinged energy of a punk-bred backing band, playing a mix of classic Brazilian psychedelic covers and originals.
