The pulsating rhythms of Pe De Boi the power samba band have electrified the New York club scene since 1980. Born of the rich Brazilian musical tradition and inflected with elements of jazz, rock and salsa, the songs on this album feature as many as 10 different percussionists. Band founder and leader Guilherme Franco a native of Brazil, a veteran of the McCoy Tyner group and one of the leading jazz percussionists in the word named his group for a Brazilian slang term whose literal translation is the "foot of an ox," but whose real meaning is a musician with a great sense of rhythm. Their unique sound, intricate rhythms and contagious high spirits have been turning on audiences and making people move from the very first beat of the music.
