Lose your­self to the rhythm

Isis Town and Country - - Childers Festival -

PRE­PARE to lose your­self to rhythm.

A young group of Brazil­ians liv­ing in Bris­bane play­ing sounds from their home­land, Som de Cal­cada trans­lates to “sounds from the side­walk/foot­path”.

This is a fit­ting trib­ute to their ex­otic, hyp­notic sound, fea­tur­ing an acous­tic mix­ture of old and new MPB (Musica Pop­u­lar Brasileira). There’s also Forro (a more trop­i­cal, folk­loric sound which has a sim­i­lar feel to reg­gae), plus the samba – the most well-known rhyth­mic style. The ensem­ble com­prises acous­tic guitar, horns, and light Brazil­ian per­cus­sion.

SOUL­FUL: Som de Cal­cada will be per­form­ing.
