Matuto quintet brings unique sounds of Brazil to Dahlonega
Matuto band members will perform a concert at 8 p.m. tonight at The Crimson Moon in downtown Dahlonega.
In Brazil, Matuto is slang for country boy or bumpkin. But a New York City-based group of urbanized virtuosos has changed that. The band Matuto is emerging as a hot international touring act with its rolling drums, quicksilver accordion licks and earthy vibe to create a unique Appalachia-gone-Afro-Brazilian sound.
