Dendê & Band
Dendê & Band
The AFROBRAZIL FUNKFEST brings the heat & energy of Carnaval with pulsing rhythms & joyous song & dance. As a world class percussionist/singer/composer/bandleader, Dendê has been a professional musician since the age of 14. He has appeared in the front line of Timbalada, Carlinhos Brown's superstar percussion ensemble. Since 2001 Dendê & Band have cultivated a unique sound where Afro-Brazilian traditions like samba de roda and candomble have been seemlessly melded with world rhythms like rumba, aftobeat and mbalax. they have recently been presented by the Glastonbury Festival (UK), the Penang World Music Festival in Malaysia, the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles, Carnegie Hall and the World Music Institute among many others.
