Performing music rooted in Brazilian Fusion, Brasuka takes listeners on a culturally diverse journey.  This exciting and original world music ensemble performs 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 20, at the Allen Public Library.   Brasuka’s free concert will be offered both in person and virtual at allentx.swagit.com . 

This group of six musicians represents five different cultures and three languages--Portuguese, Spanish, and English, but all share a passion for Brazilian music. From samba to reggae, jazz fusion to funk, fiery frevo to tender ballads, Brasuka explores multiple Brazilian rhythms and stories.

The ensemble features Mexican-American Rosana Eckert on vocals and keyboards, Uruguay-born Ricardo Bozas on percussion and vocals, Cuba-born Denny Robinson on keys and vocals, Tom Burchill from South Dakota on acoustic and electric guitars and vocals, Dallas-born Brian Warthen on bass and percussion, and Puerto Rico native Jose Aponte on drums and vocals.

The library is located at 300 N. Allen Dr. Call 214-509-4911 for additional information.
