Cacao fuse latin rhythms of the bossa nova with the sultry, summery sounds of the samba, bringing a little bit of Brazil to Belfast.
Multi instrumentalist Gnanam Samuel, who is originally from Fermanagh, spent several years living and working in London, performing all over, before returning to Northern Ireland excited by the blossoming live music scene.
The trio perform an eclectic mix of old and new Brazilian jazz songs and instrumentals from Brazil’s greatest artists plus original compositions from the group.
