“The Brazilian grooves coming from this band seem deliberately designed, like in a laboratory or something, to make you dance your ass off.”
Boulder County Events, Boulder Weekly, January, 2014

“Most of us have seen images of Carnaval celebrated in Brazil. Beautiful women dancing in thongs and elaborate costumes to live drummers, the streets crowded with people dancing. It is a world-famous event known for Samba music and dancers performing live on the streets in front of a cheering crowd. Few of us in Colorado have been to Brazil to see this celebration in person, but a group of Coloradans brought the celebration for us to enjoy at the Mercury Café in Denver.”
Brazilians bring alegria to Denver, Denver Post, August 25, 2011

“Within minutes, half the crowd is on their feet, swaying and smiling (and some singing along) to the mellifluous, gently intoxicating strains of Brazilian samba.”
Duas caipirinhas, por favor, Boulder Magazine, Winter 2011

“With tons of writhing bodies and samba maniacs… it’s a sight to see.”
– Panorama Pick, Boulder Weekly, March 3, 2011
