Details

Guitarist Clay Ross and accordionist Rob Curto perform Brazilian music and folk traditions of the American South together as Matuto. You’ll hear Brazil in the rich tones of Rob Curto’s forró accordion playing, in the rural rhythms of maracatu (from the Pernambuco region), in the urban beats of Rio’s samba, and in the intricate, chorinho-inspired melodies. All of this balanced with clear connections to American jazz, blues, bluegrass and folk. This band's music poses open-ended questions about culture’s mutability and migratory habits and about what it means to embrace and treasure sounds from outside the musical world you were born into. It’s a question that’s unfolded throughout many centuries of African and European co-mingling in the Americas, from Brazil to the American South.
