Batucada Sound Machine
Batucada Sound Machine's reputation is unquestionably in their live performance. The band thrives in a festive atmosphere and is renowned for getting crowds moving whether they are performing in Europe, Asia or Oceania.
The band's percussion-heavy rhythm section, blazin horns, chunky guitars, and soulful vocals all fuse effortlessly - to intertwine Brazilian, funk, hip-hop, afro-beat and Pacific-soul influences.
While still based in NZ, BSM have captivated audiences at countless well-respected events around the world; including Womad (UK), The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, The Afro Latino Festival (Belgium), Wereldfeest (Holland), and Ollin Kan Festival (Portugal)...
