Formed in 1995 in São Paulo, Brazil, 15-member group Barbatuques, make music using their bodies. AYÚ is their fourth album – a fusion of styles and aesthetics, reaffirming the essence of the band’s ‘body music’ sound. It is another chapter in their ongoing research into the body as a source of rhythms, melodies, harmonies, timbres and textures.
AYÚ explores many inspirations from their extensive touring both within Brazil and around the world; Brazilian rhythms including carimbo, coco, indigenous toré, choro, maracatu, baianá, rock, beatbox and kecak, as well as African styles and rhythms.
