Current GRAMMY® nominee, Andre Thierry a phenomenal talent who has been capturing the attention of musicians and music lovers from an early age. Born in Richmond, California into a family deeply rooted in Louisiana French-Creole history, Thierry is among the best of both the West Coast and the Gulf Coast musicians playing Zydeco music today. Andre is a virtuoso on all the accordion types, single row, double row, triple row and piano key. He effortlessly plays each instrument to deliver everything from a traditional Creole waltz to a hard driving blues that is his own sound. The San Francisco Bay Area, which is home to some of the best blues musicians in the world, presented Andre Thierry and Zydeco Magic with the West Coast Blues Hall of Fame award for “Best Zydeco Group” in 2008 and 2012.

Sarava Zamba, the cultural Brazilian music project was initiated in 2009, in Berkeley, CA, and founded by Leo Lobo after a jam session of artists with common musical interests. The name SaravaZamba comes from the combination of sarava which is an animated African greeting/farewell as well as an invocation from the Brazilian-African religion Candomblé, and zamba which is our original take on Brazilian samba with an international twist. We have gone on to create original songs with strong influences from Brazilian, Central America, and African music.
The band’s enthusiastic vibe, while playing covers or original songs, is contagious and the crowd cannot help but dance and have fun, adding to the multicultural experience. The audience can count on a mix of rhythms including Frevo, Samba Funk, Forro, Afro Reggae, and Carimbo, creating a tropical groove, spicy and danceable with lots of sarava.
SaravaZamba’s unique show style allows the audience to learn about Brazilian Culture while enjoying great music. Throughout the show SaravaZamba takes you on a cultural and imaginative trip to Brazil, by playing music from all the regions spanning north to south, exposing the audience to exotic Brazilian rhythms and dance.www.saravazamba.com
