Event description
This is a transcendent night of world music with Natalie Cressman & Ian Faquini opening for Brazilian funk and reggae ambassadors - SambaDa

About this Event

Based in the rich musical traditions of Brazil, SambaDá also references salsa and cumbia, blending 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. Enchanting female vocals whisk you away to warm tropical beaches with palm trees swaying. The all-encompassing element of percussion has a powerful effect, connecting one and all with our primal, rhythmic inclinations.

Renowned for her work with the Trey Anastasio Band over the last nine years, Natalie Cressman is one of the world's most identifiable trombonists. She is also a singer with a voice so pure and angelic, it could melt Dracula's blackened heart. When she's not touring with TAB, sitting in with jam gods like Umphrey's McGee or participating in numerous "super groups" around the country, Cressman performs with guitarist/vocalist Ian Faquini. Drawing from impressionism, jazz and the great Brazilian songwriting tradition, they recently released an acclaimed album - Setting Rays of Summer. We'll hear this original material played in all its breathtaking glory. Sung in three different languages - Portugese, English and French - it floats on a cloud of acoustic guitar and trombone alongside two-part vocal harmonies. The duo weave their voices together to create a fully orchestrated sound befitting a much larger ensemble. This is a set you're going to want to be quiet for and absorb the timeless magic of the moment.
