Casuarina, who celebrates their 13th anniversary in 2014, is one of the most respected samba bands of Brazil but they’re at Joe’s Pub TONIGHT.

Originally from the Rio de Janeiro neighborhood of Lapa, the band plays their repertoire all over the nation and beyond. They’ve brought their ‘samba made in Brazil’ to more than 20 countries including Angola, Cuba, France, Holland, Israel, Italy, Portugal, the United Kingdom and more. 

In addition to their own compositions, Casuarina creates original, sophisticated and virtuosic arrangements to an old repertory of classic sambas by legendary composers such as Paulinho da Viola, Dorival Caymmi, Martinho da Vila, Adoniran Barbosa, Baden Powell, João Nogueira, Noel Rosa, and more. The modern and beloved samba group conquered the music scene in Brazil and abroad with their irreverence and innovative outstanding quality of arrangements. 

In 2013, the group made its debut in the U.S., in New York and Washington DC. The vibrant performances brought significant positive feedback coming from both a Brazilian and an international audience. 

The project Casuarina North American Tour 2014 aims to highlight internationally the current trend in samba music that is being created and disseminated in Brazil. The goal is to perform in at least 6 cities in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, including their return to New York and Washington DC. The target range dates are mid-June to late-July, taking advantage of the summer weather and happenings around the 2014 World Cup.
