Imagine the sound of a Brazilian Carnaval in the Appalachian Mountains. A sound where exotic percussion instruments rumble beneath blues drenched vocals, telecaster twangs, accordion acrobatics, and folksy fiddle tunes. Now, imagine these sounds in the hands of some of NYCâs finest young improvisers as they light up club and festival stages worldwide. Matuto is the new band of guitarist and singer Clay Ross, known as Â»U.S. Jazz AmbassadorÂ» and as band member of rising folk star April Verch, and master accordionist Rob Curto (Lila Downs, David Krakauer). They began exploring a shared musical vision and set about combining their individual repertoires into an extensive library of Pan-American influences. Focusing their talents, resources, and experience Ross and Curto set out to establish Matuto as a band. Through the unorthodox blend of Brazilian Percussion and American Bluegrass, Matuto has created an organic, animated sound all its own.
