funkalicious samba soul - for alot more info ;o )

United by musical interests that include samba, funk, soul, blues, bossa, jazz and Spanish flamenco; Humberto Oliveira Sales and Madeline Holly Sales blend the melodic, rhythmic and harmonic riches from North and South America. Berto, native to Brazil, pursued a formal education in classical guitar. His knowledge of Brazilian rhythms and study of Spanish Flamenco add to the unique finger picking style he uses. Madeline brings with her the strong influence of soul, jazz and blues. She sings in Portuguese, English and Spanish. Her sensual, rich voice, playful interpretations, and strong stage presence make their combination extremely unique.
The duo performed and taught on the University of Virginia’s Central American Enrichment Voyage in December of 2010. They have performed in Brazil, Turkey, Austria, and continue to perform regionally in the United States.

Such a wonderful community here in Pamlico County, NC. Feeling full and energized after a fun show :-)

Excited to be heading to The Old Theater - Oriental, NC in #PamlicoCounty for an intimate show on Saturday. I always get that buzz of excitement mixed with nervousness when I know we'll have a true listening audience. . . the space, openness, and vulnerability allow for so many things to happen . .

Our second wedding (1st was in Brazil) took place 12 years ago today at Madeline's mom's house. Feeling so lucky:-)
