KCC Productions presents Batuke Samba Funk at the Green Parrot, Key West
If you like Funk, Afro Beat, and Brazilian music, this is the right band for you. Batuke is a mix of Brazilian rhythms like Samba and Afro-Brazilian, with the raw 70’s Funk, creating a “groovy” atmosphere wherever the band plays. Batuke Samba Funk was created by Brazilian bass player, composer, and producer Diogo Oliveira in 2009. The group comprises six musicians: three Brazilians, two Americans, and one Argentine, all based in Miami. The format can be expanded from these six to a full nine-piece big band.
The Parrot is a jury of non-judging peers, a rugged and ragged council of friends. It is a place of hi-jinks and misadventures, of understated kindnesses, and everyday miracles. It has seen all manner of human exploits, from poetry slams to divorce celebrations, from memorial services to hurricane parties and pet birthday bashes, from tattoo contests to fundraising benefits. The Green Parrot is more than a bar; it is a Key West icon; it is Key West. It has been so many things, to so many people, for so many years. And that spirit will never change.
