SambaDá Pa Ti!
The West Coast's Hottest Brazilian Band is coming to Arena Theater

Saturday, October 18
Show: 9:00 pm
Doors Open: 8:30 pm

$15 General
$10 Youth

Dubbed the West Coast's hottest Brazilian band, SambaDá musically unites the Americas by drawing from the percussion based styles of South and Central America and blending them playfully with funk and reggae beats so familiar to crowds in North America. The band is known for its high-energy percussion, danceable grooves and visually dynamic show.

SambaDá was formed in 1998 in Santa Cruz, California, by Papiba Godinho, saxophonist Anne Stafford, and drummer Gary Kehoe and has gone on to conquer clubs and festivals across the country with its explosive Carnival-like performances.

Steeped in the rich musical traditions of Brazil, band members and Brazilian natives Papiba Godinho and Dandha da Hora contribute profound knowledge of Brazilian music, and together with the entire band, they present a unique musical sound with a universal appeal.

Papiba is a master of Capoeira, an Afro Brazilian martial art form created by Brazilian slaves, which draws on music and acrobatic movements. Dandha was born into the rich Afro Brazilian traditions of Salvador, Bahia and the Carnival Group Ile Aiye, and started her dancing career at age 6. Ile Aiye has been in the forefront of Civil Rights in Brazil, promoting equality and justice, and is widely recognized as the first Afro Brazilian BLOCO or group to perform in Brazil's notorious Carnival celebrations.

The other members of SambaDá come from a wide range of styles, generations and sensibilities. What unites this band from such diverse backgrounds is a magic that can be felt by both the band and the audience. SambaDá brings joy to each performance, and keeps their fans asking for more!

About the bands and performers

They've only been recording music together for two years, but electronic/alternative duo Magic Bronson already has a technically proficient and irresistible sound. Made up of producers Michael Nicastro and Matthew Lieberman, the Los Angeles-based group's influences-from Chromeo to Talking Heads - shine through on tracks that feature Lieberman's live bass chops, multiple synths, programmed drums, and Nicastro's distinctive, effect-heavy vocals. Magic Bronson had a busy 2013 releasing the Nor'easter EP which charted on the CMJ top 200 for 5 consecutive weeks and saw airplay in over 40 different states. 2013 also included a trip to SXSW and a showcase at CMJ Music Marathon in New York. The group recently signed with Indie label War Cry Records and released two new singles in March. Magic Bronson plans to release a full length record this Fall.

"Home grown" and Point Arena based, Dysphunctional Species describe themselves as "a potent hip hop and soul cocktail with contagious chemistry that makes 'em dance." The lineup consists of long-time friends Jamison "Jamo" Hodder, Ian Gleason, Andrew Johnston, James Schmidt and brothers Keith and George Abrams, and their music ranges from hard-hitting jams to improvised freestyles. DPS has shared the stage with Bay Area heavy-weights Lyrics Born and Shotgun Wedding at events such as the Humboldt Arts and Music Festival, the Unity Festival, and the Bask Festival.

Says the band: "Our goal is to allow the listener to feel our music in their soul and make 'em dance!"

Originating from Boston, MA, Radio Active embodies the essence of hip hop. He is an emcee, beatboxer, writer, painter, and b-boy. He plays musical instruments, incorporates electronic beats with his beatbox and commands active audience participation during his fresh, soulful original live performances.

Radio Active's musical journey has brought him across the globe from large stages, performing with internationally touring musical artists to the backstage alleys, free-styling with the locals. His influences are simplistic, "Both hip hop and the street were crucial in my music development, the street provided a large impact on my music and all outlets of my creative expression. The raw emotion and honesty of the street reveals itself without regret. Seeing other kids rapping, seeing what they feel, inspires me."

The artist who describes himself as a 100% pure mutt (Grandparents from France, Scotland, Russia & Sweden), loves Dancehall, Reggae, Soul, Jazz and Hip Hop. He has shared stages from Boston to Sweden to California to Amsterdam with performers such as Joseph Hill, Culture, Ghetto Youth Crew, Luciano, Chrisinti, Beenie Man, KRS ONE, Shuggie Otis, Marc Stretch, Groundation, Chip Fu, Wisdom, Mr. Lif, Jr. Reid, Andrew and Wada Blood, Michael Rose, Easy Star All Stars, President Brown and many others.
