Brazilian world-soul artist Poranguí masterfully weaves ancestral songs and indigenous rhythms from around the world as a one-man orchestra. His infectious grooves move the body and his soulful harmonies uplift the spirit, transcending the invisible barrier between performer and audience. Immerse yourself in sacred sounds that surpass cultural and stylistic boundaries to deeply heal and integrate the mind, body, and soul.
Journey through deep, earthy didgeridoo rhythms into high-vibe, ecstatic Brazilian beats, and return to still point with blissful African kalimba lullabies. Drifting from serenades and storytelling to beat boxing and dancing, an evening with Poranguí is sure to be a memorable one. Come and let yourself be moved!
Reared among the three cultures of Brazil, Mexico, and the United States, Poranguí was steeped in various traditional forms of music, healing, and ceremony since birth. Drawing from his cross-cultural background and ethnomusicology training at Duke University, Poranguí has over fifteen years of international work experience as an artist, musician, educator, filmmaker, consultant, and therapist, utilizing the healing properties of sound and movement to foster our individual and collective well-being.
