RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – The Circo Voador venue located in the Rio de Janeiro neighborhood of Lapa will be filled with blaring horns and blasting percussion as the American group, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, and the Rio de Janeiro brass bloco (Carnival group) Orquestra Voadora perform live tonight, Saturday, May 23rd.
An eight-piece group based in Chicago, the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble is known from their wide-ranging style. Featuring only brass players and a percussionist, with the exception of a guitarist and bassist for live shows and recordings, their sounds move energetically from jazz . . .
