Originally from Rio de Janeiro’s famous bohemian neighborhood Lapa, Casuarina is one of today’s most respected bands of Brazil. They’ve conquered the music scene in their home country and have brought their ‘samba made in Brazil’ to over 20 countries, performing their original compositions and classic samba repertoire by Paulinho da Viola, Dorival Caymmi, Martinho da Vila, Adoniran Barbosa, João Nogueira and more. The award winning group most recently won “Best Samba Group” in 2017 from the 28th Brazilian Music Awards. Brazilian Beat Reunion is coming back for a rare reunion and a very special one-off with DJ Greg Caz and Sean Marquand. For the first decade of this millennium hey unleashed a barrage of vintage dancefloor killers from their large Brazilian record collections, some well-known and others quite rare. But the result was always the same: absolute dancefloor pandemonium and a party that remains a fondly-remembered reference in recent NYC nightlife.
