About the Seu Jacinto: Seu Jacinto is the original Forró band from Texas. Based in Austin, Texas, Seu Jacinto is a music group interested in introducing and developing traditional Northeastern Brazilian culture to Central Texas. Their work as a grassroots collective has been focused on the traditional regional music forms of Northeastern Brazil, more specifically the state of Pernambuco and surrounding areas. The opportunity to share aspects of Brazilian culture that are generally overshadowed is a wonderful means for them to share their passion with the public, establish a community and add yet more flavor to our funky city. Their involvement with Brazilian folklore offers an exploration into its history, which led them to understand this colorful and diverse country. Seu Jacinto has a very danceable show, with multiple singers, percussionists, and a lineup that vary from 6 to 8 musicians. They have been playing together for over a decade on all types of venues around the state of Texas. A Seu Jacinto show is a guarantee of a fun night!
