ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Aché Brasil! An explosion of colour, energy and music!

Aché Brasil represents the culture, the traditions, the beliefs, the music and the movement of the people of Brazil. Equal parts dance, music, spectacle, Aché Brasil has played to enthusiastic audiences and critical acclaim from all over North America receiving a recent nomination for "Live Performers of the Year" at the West Coast Music Awards.

Aché Brasil specializes in the performance of popular and traditional Afro-Brazilian music, dance and rhythms. Amazing acrobatic feats and dances all done to a combination of Brazil’s most infectious rhythms, featuring a fabulous back-up band comprised of some of Brazil’s and Canada’s finest musicians. While Aché Brasil’s music is rooted in the more traditional forms of Brazilian rhythms: Samba, Maracatu, Coco de Roda, Capoeira; it also reflects the influences of Brazilian and North American pop. These influences have created something new, Aché Brasil’s own contribution to the evolution of Brazilian music.

Originating from Pernambuco, by founder and director, Mestre Eclilson de Jesus, the group has gone on to receive international acclaim, performing for thousands of festivals and special events such as, The International Olympic Committee, The International Vancouver Jazz Festival - for four consecutive years, The World Figure Skating Championship, Toronto’s Harbourfront Theatre, Mission Folk Music Festival, etc. Seen by thousands on The Vicky Gabareau Show, CBC’s West Coast Music Award, Aché Brasil has far exceeded the expectations of many festivals, “The energy of the band never slowed for the whole hour of their performance… Aché Brasil proved to be a super band.” The Yukon News, Al Pope

The word "Aché" stems from Yoruba, meaning, "all things positive” and it is in this spirit that British Columbia's foremost Brazilian music and dance troupe hopes to inspire others to explore the energetic and multi-faceted culture of Brazil.

Aché Brasil greatly acknowledges the financial support of The Canada Council for the Arts.
