"...the band grounds lighthearted melodies and reflective vocals in an expert amalgamation of Afro-Brazilian and Cuban rhythms." -Flavorpill

"The sinuous jams of Dendê & Hãhãhães ought to delight fans of Afrobeat and psych-tinged funk." -Time Out New York

Dendê is a percussionist, singer, composer, bandleader, teacher, and multi-instrumentalist. He's been a professional musician since the age of 14, when he appeared in the frontline of Timbalada, Carlinhos Brown's superstar percussion ensemble. Since 2001, he's been developing his solo career, splitting his time between the US and Bahia. Now on their second album, Dendê & Band have cultivated a unique sound where Afro-Brazilian traditions like samba de roda and candomble have been seemlessly melded with world rhythms like rumba, afrobeat and mbalax. Dendê & Band have recently performed at venues such as the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles; the KW Latinfest in Ontario, Canada; the Penang World Music Festival inMalaysia; Summerdance in Chicago and the Chile Pepper Fiesta at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens.

"...Dendê, from Brazil, merged a strutting beat and annunciatory salvos on a single drum..." -NY Times
