Dubbed the West Coast’s hottest Brazilian band by promoters, journalists and fans, SambaDá musically unites the Americas. Based in the rich musical traditions of Brazil, SambaDá also references salsa and cumbia, and blends them playfully with funk and reggae beats. Brazilian natives Papiba Godinho and Dandha da Hora bring profound knowledge and respect for Brazilian music, and together with the entire band, they present a unique musical sound with a universal appeal.
TARIMBA is a collective of local Bay Area musicians who have embraced the traditional genre of Son Jarocho music. The core members of TARIMBA are experienced multi-instrumentalists and vocalists who are dedicated to son jarocho’s community-building ethos, playful lyrics, and improvisational sensibility. Tarimba’ is another word for ‘tarima’, the wooden dance platform that serves as the heart of the Son Jarocho tradition of the Sotavento region of Mexico (comprising Southern Veracruz and parts of Northern Oaxaca and Tabasco). Son Jarocho reflects its Spanish, Arabic, African, Caribbean and Indigenous influences, and is played at community celebrations called Fandangos.
