Buyakano is modern samba with different concept.
A massive groove-machine with breath-taking energy, great precision and original repertoire.
With the velocity of a train. In short: This act has that certain drive to it.
Based in Rotterdam this massive collective of 15 extraordinary musicians from more than ten different countries has taken the local scene by storm, quickly gained an excellent reputation as live-act and as ambassadors of extremely danceable music ™.
Buyakanos roots lie in the samba traditions of Brazil, but this band goes beyond:
Cooking Samba-Reggae with Hip-Hop, mixing it with Dubstep, Latin, and a good shot of Boom, adding Breaks and Breakbeats as seasoning – and an estimate of about 1.973 other secret ingredients – this innovative live act leaves the cautious drink-nibbling-fraction in the minority…
Buyakano unleashes a fulminant show with powerful arrangements and known side effects such as ecstatic dancing, euphoric cheering or other paranormal activities. Accelerated heart beat and increased endorphine production all the way.
By popular demand Buyakano features and collaborates with many renowned artists, joining forces with smashing MCs and pumping basslines, stunning singers and blazing horns.
Buyakano constists of a massive 10-head power-percussion crew, 3 blazin Horns, features 3 exceptional singers on vocals, smashing bass-lines, and works together with stunning dancers, performance artists or visual artists. Bombastic show guaranteed with a fully flexible line-up of 10 to 20 performers, Buyakano has never failed to move a crowd and definitely packs a punch.
