Matuto is emerging as one of the world’s hottest international touring acts. An official selection of WOMEX 2011, the band was recently awarded the title of “American Musical Ambassadors” by the U.S. State Department.
High energy Brazilian percussion rumbles beneath blues-drenched vocals, telecaster twang, accordion acrobatics and folksy fiddle tunes. Through the unorthodox blend of Afro-Brazilian percussion and American roots music, Matuto has created an organic, animated new sound.
