1st annual Tulsa Roots Rocks the Green
Sunday, September 23, 2012 | 12:00 am
This Brazilian/American collective plays a 21st century mashup inspired by Brazilian maracatu drumming, New Orleans second line rhythms, funk, swamp rock and country blues. A regular at both American and Brazilian festivals, Nation Beat are rhythm gatherers, harvesting the fruit of 500 years of cultural crossbreeding, which is why the sounds of Northeast Brazil and the American South blend together so seamlessly. The focus is on complete unity of sound and style, grounded in the musicians’ own history and years of collaboration.
