Porangui- Brazilian World Soul Artist Comes to OTCA

Brazilian World Soul Artist Porangui, comes to Cottonwood on Saturday, December 10th, at 7:00 PM in a special ‘one night only’ concert, at Old Town Center for the Arts.

Poranguí, a virtual one-man orchestra, masterfully weaves ancestral songs and indigenous rhythms from around the world. His infectious grooves move the body, and soulful harmonies uplift the spirit, transcending the invisible barrier of performer and audience.

Reared among the three cultures of Brazil, Mexico and the U.S., Poranguí was steeped in various traditional forms of music, healing and ceremony since birth. Drawing from his cross-cultural background and ethnomusicology training at Duke University, Poranguí has over fifteen years of international work experience as an artist, musician, educator, filmmaker, consultant and therapist, utilizing the healing properties of sound and movement to foster individual and collective well being.

As a live musician, world soul artist and one-man orchestra, Poranguí creates his performances from scratch using looping technology. Poranguí’s live grooves range from heartfelt meditative to exhilarating dance party rhythms. An evening with Poranguí will take you on a journey from deep, earthy didgeridoo grooves to high-vibe ecstatic Brazilian beats, to blissful African kalimba lullabies. His serenades and storytelling mix beat boxing and booty shaking, that all add to an unforgettable experience.

Poranguí has traveled and performed internationally with renowned artists. Highlights include a European tour, recording with the BBC in London at the Jazz Café and the PBS Singer-Songwriter Series, plus performing as the featured artist for SXSW Yoga Soundscapes Series. In sound design and media production, Poranguí recently worked with director Mitch Schultz (DMT: The Spirit Molecule) and executive producer, Aubrey Marcus on Ayahuasca, a documentary set in the Amazon.

Come journey with Porangui into the deep grooves of world music, on Saturday, December 10th. Immerse yourself in sacred sounds that transcend cultural and stylistic boundaries to deeply heal & integrate the mind, body and soul. Treat yourself to the holiday season, enjoy the music and be entertained. An evening with Poranguí is sure to be a memorable one.
