World Soul Music – Improvisational Live Looping
Open with intentional ceremony and drop into deep earthy grooves as Poranguí sonically guides us through waves of ecstatic movement and blissful stillness. His partner, Ashley Klein brings the spirit of the music into the Dance.
About Poranguí :
Reared among the three cultures of Brazil, Mexico and the U.S., Poranguí was steeped in various traditional forms of music, healing and ceremony since birth. Drawing from his cross-cultural background and ethnomusicology training at Duke University, Poranguí has over twenty years of international work experience as an artist, musician, educator, filmmaker, consultant and therapist, utilizing the healing properties of sound and movement to foster our individual and collective well being.
As a live looping artist and one-man orchestra Poranguí weaves ancestral songs and indigenous rhythms from around the globe. Creating his performances from scratch using looping technology, Poranguí’s live grooves range from meditative to dance party, moving the body, lifting the spirit, and transcending the divide between performer and audience.
“Masterful at looping layers and layers of mesmerizing Afro-Brazilian sounds…he delighted the crowd.” – NPR.ORG
“He’s a melting pot of cultures within his own being, and it certainly can be felt and heard in his music, rhythmically, sonically, and linguistically…Intentionally, no two performances are ever alike.” – Phoenix New Times
