The Brazilian Rock duo Sambulus @ Somethin' Jazz Club in New York City

This amazing Brazilian Rock duo, Sambulus performed for the first time in NYC this week! -  the brilliant couple special appearance @ Somethin' Jazz Club was part of a series of concerts to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Jimi Hendrix and the release of their new album 'Um Mais Um'.

In 2010 Luana Mariano & Caesar Barbosa combined their talents to honor the idol Hendrix - just one piano, her unbelievable female voice and guitar coming together to reverence some unique creations of the genius American master. Hendrix (born November 27, 1942 – September 18, 1970) was an American musician, singer and songwriter.

Luana & Caesar bring the Brazilian Tropical flavor to the songs they sing and deliver their own original tune to the public!
