Maracatu Pacifico at MACLA

In Music

Performance group Maracatu Pacifico bring their Afro-Brazilian maracatu music and dance to San Jose. Maracatu is a folkloric tradition that can be traced back to the colonial era of Brazil. The music and dancing represent Brazil in a vivid, joyful way. Founded in 2012, Maracatu Pacifico focuses on community and personal development through study and performance. They draw their inspiration from traditional sounds that offer more subtle, mellow tunes as well as modern, nontraditional sounds. With the use of Brazilian folk instruments—such as the caixa, a kind of snare drum—they spread Northeastern Brazilian culture around the Bay Area.
