Carnegie Hall presents a Neighborhood Concert: Matuto

by Welcome to Harlem


April 19, 2017 at 7:30 PM – 9:00 PM

The lively, joyous sound of Matuto entwines Brazilian folk music with the flatpicking guitars and fiery fiddling of American bluegrass. Matuto (Brazilian slang for “country boy”) beautifully embraces Brazilian forró rhythms and the folk traditions of the American South, with instruments that include accordion, guitar, bass, triangle, and zabumba, a bass drum often used in Brazilian music. This performance features new works written and performed by youth in collaboration with Matuto as part of Carnegie Hall’s Musical Connections program.
