Samba de Raiz

Grupo Falso Baiano

Though Grupo Falso Baiano normally performs as a quartet, Roots Samba showcases a quintet with the wonderful Brazilian vocalist Fabiana Passoni. The history, stories, and evolving culture of Brazil have all found a home in Samba: the complex infectious folk music that is Brazil's most famous export. Join Grupo Falso Baiano in a cultural experience that will leave students singing in Portuguese as well as dancing to authentic samba! This program includes a participatory breakdown of the traditional rhythms and movements from Brazil, the folklore and history behind famous songs, and a look at how both Brazil and the U.S. are tied together through their shared musical evolution and history.
