About Dudu Fuentes:

Dudu is one of the founders of one of Rio's largest blocos, Bangalafumenga. His special interest and area of expertise is adapting folkloric rhythms such as ciranda, côco, makulelê, ijexá to create fresh arrangements of popular or original songs, creating a new movement in the evolution of Brazilian music.

Bangalafumenga is one of two major groups (the other being Monobloco) that is largely responsible for the current renaissance of interest in Brazilian folkloric music and culture among the young people in Rio de Janeiro.  Fifteen years ago, Lapa, the former bohemian area of Rio, was abandoned and falling apart. These days, on summer weekends in Rio, largely due to the work of people like Dudu, Lapa is filled with hip, young Brazilians returning to and adoring their own culture.
