Appalachian fiddle tunes take on a Brazilian lilt — South American percussion riffs it up with North American blues and jazz — the American South meets world music funk! Guitarist and singer Clay Ross teams up with master accordionist Rob Curto and musicians from all corners of NYC's jazz, roots and world music scenes.
With an honest love for roots music, genuine Brazilian styles, and improvisational experimentation, Matuto creates a unique and inspired sound from the heart of New York City's diverse musical culture.
The band features violin, guitar, accordion, bass, drums, and various Brazilian percussion instruments: the alfaia (a large, wooden, rope-tuned bass drum), the pandeiro (a Brazilian tambourine), the berimbau (a single-string on a bow struck with a small stick), and the agogô (a pair of small, pitched metal bells.)
