Muntchako (Mundiais Tchatchatchas Nocauteadores, a.k.a. ‘World Cha-Cha-Cha Knockouts’) - Three minds, three worlds and a bunch of different influences. From Funk to Tango, from Morroco to Araripe, from Ska to Afrobeat, Camboja to Samambaia, from Cumbia to Arrocha: this is how transits the talented trio composed by Samuel Mota (guitar, synths and programming), Rodrigo Barata (drum and samplers) and Macaxeira Acioli (percussion and samplers) by electronic frequencies and world music beats without borders. Raise the volume, move away the furniture and shake your ass !
The source of the group’s musical energy and its wild originality are born out of love for a free and global sound. The fusion of each artist’s wild repertoire, as varied as their eccentric and fantastical costumes, creates a unique and catchy avalanche of sound.
After taking Brazilian and Colombian fans by storm the Brazilian instrumental group now unleash its universal and energetic sound on the U.S.A and Europe.
Fusing elements of Brazilian forro, Argentine tango and Afro-Colombian styles with ska, rock, funk and electronics, the wild three-piece from Brazil’s insane capital city bring a huge energy that sounds like a Brazilian fusion of Buraka Som Sistema, Gotan Project and The Comet is Coming.
Muntchako is like an ancient secret weapon, only to be used in times of necessity, but once you have it with you, you won’t want to let it go !
