Flavia Coelho
NY DEBUT

A quintessential performer, Flavia Coelho is adored for her electrifying stage presence, indomitable energy, and bold style. Her music is a fantastical hybrid that builds new aural textures on the memory and culture of Brazilian music. Incorporating Brazilian baile funk, bossa nova, repente, forró, and samba with hip-hop, African rhythms, boleros, and reggae. She creates a stylish, mischievous mix that brings a new Brazilian sound to the world.

Guayo Cedeño + Coco Bar
US DEBUT
Honduran guitarist Guayo Cedeño is one of the finest masters of his instrument in all of Central America. He has gained his international recognition from his work on stage with Andy Palacio & The Garifuna Collective and Aurelio Martinez, among other Garifuna music stars. Guayo learned his skills from watching his father’s band, Los Robbins playing at the bars in La Ceiba, Honduras. His sound is slinky and romantic with a Latin lounge quality, reminiscent of Ry Cooder and Calexico. Guayo’s first solo album, Coco Bar, will be released this Spring. They will be joined by the renowned Garifuna singer/songwriter Aurelio Martinez on guitar and vocals and Garifuna drums.
