Boogarins On World Cafe

May 31, 2016

The Brazilian band Boogarins makes its World Cafe debut with a performance recorded onstage at World Cafe Live and an interview with guitarists Dinho Almeida and Benke Ferraz, who started the band while attending high school in the small central Brazilian city of Goiânia. The band's psychedelic music features Almeida's and Ferraz's intertwined guitars and is influenced by Tropicália, the Brazilian art movement that gave rise to artists like Os Mutantes and Caetano Veloso in the 1960s.

Boogarins' music spread from Goiânia throughout Brazil and finally attracted the attention of the staff at the New York City record store Other Music, which released the band's debut album internationally in 2013. Boogarins' latest record, Manual, Or Free Guide To The Dissolution Of Dreams, came out in October 2015. Hear the conversation and performance above.
