Eliot Schoolyard Concert: Trio Let’s Vamos
August 28 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Date: August 28
Venue: Eliot School of Fine & Applied Arts, 24 Eliot Street, Jamaica Plain
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). This is part of the Eliot Schoolyard Concert Series, 15 live events, Sundays at 4pm, June through September at the Eliot Schoolyard.
