Tupi Nago


The musical traditions from the Tupi Indians of Brazil as well as the Nago natives of Niger are brought collectively to generate the rhythm-heavy sounds of Tupi Nago. Representing the eyesight of ex-Chet Baker, Cesario Evora, and Nelson Ayres sideman Silvano Michelino, the ten-piece group was presented inside a documentary video, Histories of Groove, filmed by RKK Nova Productions for MCA in 1996. Their debut recording, Abracadabrasil, followed 3 years later.
