Though more international than many other bands (singer Sabina Sciubba is Italian, while keyboardist Didi Gutman is Argentinian), no one in Brazilian Girls is actually Brazilian, and only one of them is female. But regardless of any questions raised by their name, one thing is certain – they’re a band that knows how to have a good time. Last Saturday night, the New York-based quartet brought their world music-influenced electronic dance-punk to the Ottobar in Baltimore for a show that kept everyone in the venue moving for the entire show.
DC! Hope you're ready to dance, because BRAZILLIAN GIRLS are coming to town this Thursday, and it's totally in their rider that you show up and shake your ass. All of you!
Formed in back in 2003 in the clubs of New York City, this quartet mashes together bits of reggae, electronica, jazz, bossa nova and whatever other sound happens to catch their ear into a bootie shaking stew of polyethnic partytime awesomeness. In 2011 the band publicly called it quits, yet continued to work quietly on projects in the background, most notably contributing a track to the AIDS benefit album Red Hot+Rio 2. Now in 2012, Brazillian Girls have officially reformed and are playing a handful of shows around the world, which we can only assume/hope is a warmup for something bigger to come later on this year.
