Engaging, dynamic, and captivating: that’s what people worldwide say about this smokin’ hot Brazilian quartet. San Diego Story raves, “Farofa is bringing a much-needed fresh flavor to the contemporary jazz scene.” Like "farofa", the tasty side-dish made from yucca flour, this world music band cooks up a blend of pop, jazz, Afro-Brazilian rhythms, rock, and their own originals!
