Performing music rooted in Brazilian Fusion, Brasuka takes listeners on a culturally diverse journey. This exciting and original world music ensemble performs 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 20, at the Allen Public Library. Brasuka’s free concert will be offered both in-person and virtual at allentx.swagit.com .
This group of six musicians represents five different cultures and three languages--Portuguese, Spanish, and English, but all share a passion for Brazilian music. From samba to reggae, jazz fusion to funk, fiery frevo to tender ballads, Brasuka explores multiple Brazilian rhythms and stories.
The ensemble features Mexican-American Rosana Eckert on vocals and keyboards, Uruguay-born Ricardo Bozas on percussion and vocals, Cuba-born Denny Robinson on keys and vocals, Tom Burchill from South Dakota on acoustic and electric guitars and vocals, Dallas-born Brian Warthen on bass and percussion, and Puerto Rico native Jose Aponte on drums and vocals.
