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.
Karikatura is a Brooklyn-based indy world music band, combining sounds and storytelling arts from all over the world. Greatly influenced by the sounds of Latin, Eastern European, and Jamaican traditions, Karikatura forges a soundtrack to stories born from world-wide travel experiences. Infectious horn melodies soar over soulful vocals, while the rock solid rhythm section makes bodies move to constantly evolving grooves. They proudly bring their unique style and rocking energy into a huge range of settings, from Manhattan jazz bistros to Czech punk rock clubs, and concert hall stages the world over.
$10 Cover at Door. 21+. 8pm-10pm.
