Eliot Schoolyard Summer Concert Series
August 28 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Trio Let’s Vamos Trio Let’s Vamos is a unique Brazilian-American musical collaboration playing Forró Pé-de-Serra, featuring rhythms such as baião, xaxado and samba. Forró became famous in the 1940s and ‘50s with tunes steeped in the stories and culture of Brazil’s arid Northeast, the Sertão. Accordion, voice and percussion play melodies influenced by the vocal calls sung by cowboys herding cattle (aboios do vaqueiros). Trio Let’s Vamos is led by Tarciso Alves (zabumba and voice), along with Ken Hiatt (accordion) and Valeria Lima (triangle and backing vocals).
