Naurêa – Na Dansanteria

•May 6, 2014 • Leave a Comment

NaurÊa from Aracajú (capital of Sergipe State in the Northeast of Brazil) plays what they call Sambaião. As the name already suggests, it’s a mixture of Samba and Baião (one of the music styles that later became Forró), but that’s not all. The band receives other influences from Brazil and abroad: from African elements, Reggaeton, Caribbean guitars from Pará State, to Rap, among others. The idea is to show the potential of Forró creating an own sound with local accent.

With their new EP they invite to enter the “Dansanteria”, a mix of the words “dança” (dance), “santeria” (path of the gods) and “danceteria” (discotheque).
