The pulsating rhythms of Pe De Boi, captured on the album Pe De Boi: Power Samba Band, have electrified the New York club scene since the 1980s.  Born of the rich Brazilian musical tradition and inflected with elements of American Jazz, Rock and Salsa, the songs on this album feature as many as ten different percussionists. 


Band founder and leader Guilherme Franco, a native of Brazil, named his group for a Brazilian slang term whose literal translation is “foot of an ox,” but whose real colloquial meaning is “a musician with a great sense of rhythm.” One of the most-in-demand Latin and World music percussionists, Guilherme Franco and has worked with McCoy Tyner, Herbie Hancock, Keith Jarrett, Don Pullen, Woody Shaw, and Lee Konitz, among many others.


The unique sound, intricate rhythms and contagious high spirits of Pe De Boi have been turning on audiences and making people dance, move, and groove from the very first beat of the music. With this album release, entitled Pe De Boi: Power Samba Band, (also available on CD) the group, accompanied by all-star musicians from around the world, proves that with the Power Samba and Jazz of Pe De Boi… it’s Carnival all year long!
