Percussionist Felix Gibbons spent 12 years in Brazil and has played with the country`s top stars Martinho da Vila, Milton Nascimento, Gilberto Gil, Ze Keti, Jair Rodrigues amongst a long list of others. He`s teamed up with MPB whizz-kid Pepe Barcellos who featured no-one less than Seu Jorge on his Second CD and Fabao from Rio. Fabio Allman – singer and instrumentalist from Rio`s spectacular Monobloco used to share a flat with Pepe in Humaita in Rio and has since become frontman for Rio superstars Monobloco.

The shows bring a little bit of Rio to the British summer and be warned….
