IPTC INFO
CaptionBoca do Rio is musicá organica -- live music played live! It is inspired by the thousands of musicians and the music lovers that have gone before us and laid the rhythmic foundations of samba baião samba-reggae the dances for the orishas and all that gives homage to the beats. It is the African diaspora alive through rhythms and pulses – it is the commonality that binds humans to the air we breathe the food from which we nourish the water we imbibe and the love through which we flourish. Boca do Rio exists to share and celebrate music and everything that it brings to our lives through the cross-pollination of the Americas. It’s the water that flows from mountains to oceans from inside to out. It’s the earth beneath our feet the soil beneath the concrete the minerals from the stars that grace each of our cells. --- --- --- The San Francisco band Boca do Rio takes its name from the Portuguese “mouth of the river --- --- --- Boca always had a jazz sensibility – “Improvisation is a huge part of what we do ” Welch admits – but samba is at the heart of the band’s music. “I think Americans need to hear samba as much for its spirit as its musicality ” he says. “It started in favelas with African roots and rhythms blending with European parlor music but the thing that’s important for Americans is not just the carnival aspect but its spirit of celebration. The roots of samba are about community in the groove just as jazz is about musicians coming together. There’s a tremendous synergy between jazz and Brazilian music.” --- --- --- --- Members: Kevin Welch - guitar vocals Jon Evans Eduardo Amado - bass Scott Johnson - drums vocals Alex Calatayud - percussion Larry De La Cruz - saxophone .
