Dendê & Band (Afro-Brazilian Funk)


Dendê is a percussionist, singer, composer, bandleader, teacher, and multi-instrumentalist. He’s been a professional musician since the age of 14, when he appeared in the frontline of Timbalada, Carlinhos Brown’s superstar percussion ensemble. Since 2001, he’s been splitting his time between New York and Bahia, and has played with Mongo Santamaria, Giovanni Hidalgo, Zakir Hussain, David Byrne, and Vinicius Cantuária. His own bands include the folkloric music and dance troupe Ologundê, the acoustic Samba de Três, and Arrastão do Dendê, a traditional Afro bloco (samba party band), but it’s as leader and principal songwriter of his flagship band that Dendê has made his greatest impact. 

The band, formerly called Hãhãhães, has been packing clubs and festivals throughout the US and internationally for the past five years most. The have been presented most notably by Lincoln Center, the Kennedy Center, the World Music Institute, the Cedar Cultural Center, the Old Town School for Folk Music, Joe’s Pub, World Café Live and Johnny D’s among many others. They have been featured at festivals such as the Marquette Waterfront Festival in Madison, WI; the Lake Eden Arts Festival in North Carolina; the Kalalu Festival in Saint Lucia.

Organizer

BELEZA NYC LLC

Beleza NYC is an eclectic event planning group which aims to open people to diverse communities by presenting infectious world music, art and culture in venues all over New York City.

Beleza NYC started in December 2006 showcasing small performance events with local Brazilian bands and DJs in the New York City area. Since then, we have become increasingly popular for its bi-monthly world dance parties that continue to offer eclectic crowds the hottest live world music and DJ’s.

Beleza NYC’s events are famous for taking the sexy and vibrant rhythms of Brazilian samba, bossa nova, pagode and forro, and blending them with the best of Latin American, African and American styles of music. This fresh combination undeniably energizes our crowds, spreading the uniquely Brazilian feeling of freedom, beauty and good vibrations embodied in the word ‘beleza’.

Now in its fifth year, Beleza NYC continues to succeed and expand. We have recently widened our focus, partnering with an array of musicians, writers, designers, photographers and other visual artists to create collaborative multimedia events and performances. Beleza has also ventured into hosting world class concerts at larger venues featuring musical acts from abroad. Dynamic events like these keep taking our brand to the next level and spreading the spirit of Beleza!
