Xaxado Mission is a San Francisco based Brazilian band and that specializes in Forró, a genre of music originated in Northeastern Brazil. The repertoire brings high energy songs from masters Luiz Gonzaga and Jackson do Pandeiro, in addition to many classic and modern Forró songs in an very own feel.
Tarciso Alves is a singer/songwriter specializing in North-Eastern Brazilian folk music. He grew up in the Brazilian state of Pernambuco, steeped in the region's traditions of music, folk dancing, and spoken-word poetry. After receiving his first guitar at the age of fifteen, Tarciso taught himself to play by jamming with local musicians, and studying the work of some of his favorite artists, such as Luiz Gonzaga, Dominguinhos and Gilberto Gil. By 2010, Tarciso had moved to Recife, and was playing and singing professionally with Forro bands all over the city. Soon after, he studied vocal performance at the Pernambuco Conservatory of Music, and finally, in 2014 released his first cd, Vivencias, which translates as experiences - a subtle and expressive mix of covers and originals, ranging in style from original folk ballads, to covers of American pop songs with Brazilian rhythms. His second cd, Arrocha o No was released in 2016, and features a mix of lively original Forro music, and more contemplative Baiao and other styles, with lyrics in both Portuguese and English. Since moving to the states, Tarciso has performed at the Cambridge Riverfest and the Make-music Harvard Square Festival, and is scheduled to perform at Bostons Greenfest later this summer.
DJ Flora is a spectacular vinyl DJ with a unique collection of rare Brazilian albums. For this event she'll be spinning some of her new acquisitions from Brazil, finger picked for all your Forró dancing needs.
