Important info for presenters, promoters and agents:

When some of the top credentialed L.A. musician’s get together and create a Labor Of Love, any performance is going to be a deep experience.
HeartBeat Brazil is a well-rehearsed and passionate group which is eager to make your audiences feel included and transported.

What the music sounds like: 
International artists like Sergio Mendez, Ivan Lins, Caetano Veloso, SoCal artists Rique Pantoja, Dori Caymmi and local act SambaGuru are the most similar.

Style description:
Brazilian Jazz, Samba, Bossa Nova, Brazilian Pop (MPB), Maracatu and Frevo.

THIS IS NOT A SALSA BAND ! Practically the polar opposite of 
Salsa, Merengue, Cuban jazz or Cuban folklore of any type, HEARTBEAT BRAZIL’s jazz element places a strong emphasis on Brazilian harmony and melody and the native rhythms of Brazil which sound completely different than Salsa or any of the widely known Latin styles.
The rich and emotive orchestrations clearly set this act apart from other mainstream Latin acts.


Variety is Vital. We realize that your main objective is to create diversity in your bookings.

Three Minute Show Reel featuring 6 different styles !

As you can see (and hear), we are confident in stating that HEARTBEAT BRAZIL has no parallel anywhere in California


Since HeartBeat Brazil is a multi-format band, it can present a magnificent show in many different configurations. HeartBeat Brazil adds percussionists to enhance the tribal drumming element of Brazilian folklore as one would expect of a Samba parade, a Maracatu performance or the Samba in the Round (Samba De Roda)
Below you can see what fits your stage and audience best.
