Farofa and Caro Pierotto Shadbolt Centre for the Arts

Fasten your seatbelts, you are about to take a ride on BR-101, the major highway connecting Brazil from North to South! Brazilian exports, Farofa and vocalist Caro Pierotto will be your guides on this musical tour featuring the smokin’ hot rhythms and sensuous melodies of their birth place.

Farofa’s raw talent thrives on the collaborations of its members, touring musicians Felipe Fraga (Percussion), Isaias Elpes (Bass), JP Mourão (Brazilian Viola Caipira) and Luis Mascaro (Violin). Through their independent journeys, they have worked with such prolific artists as Ricky Martin, Lee Ritenour, Selena Gomez and Foo Fighters – and together, they are turning heads with their fresh and imaginative set lists and avante-garde mashups.
