Event Details

SambaFunk! presents A Tribute to Mestre Carlos Aceituno. A Spectacular night of Performances!

SambaFunk! comes from the Afro-Brasilian dance and drum tradition – although our music also includes rhythms from Africa and the rest of the African diaspora. The influence of American funk in Brasil in previous decades, combined with their already established rhythmic flavors, continues to produce beautiful music that is thoroughly danceable. Here in the U.S., the beat feels very familiar. There are many names for the different rhythms, from the traditional sounds of just percussion to modern bands, there are a variety of flavors that we can refer to as SambaFunk!

The Funkquarians are all the peoples of the SambaFunk! movement. They come in all shapes, sizes, ages, ethnicities, and have a variety of skills and interests outside of funking around and dancing.

Hear their Music, see their Dance LIVE! As we pay tribute to Mestre Carlos Aceituno.
