Folk Music From North East of Brazil

Founded through an organic collaboration between Brazilian and Canadian musicians, and led by the dynamic Jerusa Leão, Maria and the Band play forró 'pé de serra', a style of music from northeastern Brazil and textured with influences ranging from blues to arabesque. . Incorporating rabeca (Brazilian fiddle), zabumba (two-toned drum), accordion, triangle, and a chorus of vocals, Maria and The Band play original compositions and the great songs of forró so beloved in Brazil.
