A pivotal new sound on the Brazilian and World Music scene.
With a calculated lean toward instrumental music, Off to Farofa uses jazz, pop, and classical music as the colors to a musical palette that includes Brazilian rhythms such as maracatu, afoxé, samba, and sertanejo. Influenced by bands like Dirty Loops and artists like Stanley Clarke and Hermeto Pascoal, Off To Farofa offers refreshing takes on favorites like Tears For Fears’ “Everybody Wants To Rule The World,” Michael Jackson’s “Human Nature,” and João Bosco’s Incompatibilidade De Gênios. The hip and smart song selection draws from the best of both American and Brazilian hits. Singing along is de rigueur at an Off To Farofa show, no matter what your language preference is.
The stars didn’t have to work too hard to align these four world-class musicians. They are representatives of a new breed of highly educated and very motivated young Brazilians to recently hit the Los Angeles music scene.
