Wicked Aura Batucada

Wicked Aura BatucadaFrom Singapore

Putting the street into the music, and the music into the street.
In just two years, Wicked Aura Batucada has put Singapore on the world music map with its infectious rhythms and positive energy. Wicked Aura Batucada is a percussion group made up of over a dozen noise mongers. Avid disciples of the drums, they play their own brand of Brazilian samba batucada music fused with funk, afrobeat, local ethnic rhythms and whatever other sounds these urban jungle dwellers can devour and regurgitate. Wicked Aura Batucada is the fresh new face of Singapore – young, alive, multicultural, yet rooted in the traditional rhythms of life.
