Barbatuques | Carcará

Barbatuques is a unique Human Beatbox ensemble, a vocal orchestra whose members strive to turn their respective bodies into real instruments; in-doing-so, the group has become an absolute reference of this particular genre. Handclaps, finger-claps, chest-beating, taps and peculiar vocal effects mingle expertly with singing and a few instruments (Jews’ harp, flute and guitar), to produce rhythms and melodies that are characteristic of Brazil: samba, baião, afoxé and maracatu.( more ) .
