Forrozêra Available For Preorder, Album Release Party on May 31, & More!
We are happy to announce that our new album, Forrozêra, is now available for preorder at our Bandcamp page! You can listen to three tracks now, which are also available for immediate download. The album will officially release on June 2. Forrozêra features a mix of original compositions, some tunes written by Hermeto, and two tunes writtenby our good friends Caio Barreira and Masumi Jones. We think that this album came out even better than we hoped, so it's very exciting to present it to the world!
Our album release party is scheduled for May 31, at Esquina Tango. (209 Pedernales Street, Austin, TX 78702) Maracatu Texas will open the show at 6:45 PM and we'll take the stage at 7:15. $8 cover. Esquina is a BYOB venue, but we will also provide free beer and wine for attendees, available while it lasts. You can RSVP via Facebook, here.
We will also play an early set at the San Antonio Summer Art & Jazz Festival on June 7. Our friends at KRTU in San Antonio have been spinning Wanderlust on air for awhile now, so it will be nice to get down that way for a show. We'll follow that up with a gig at The Sahara Lounge on Sunday, June 14, as part of a bill with Brazilian singer-songwriter Paula Maya. That will be our last show in Austin before embarking on a two week tour of the Mountain and Western states, but more on that later!
