The group was formed by University of Texas students and the current line-up has musicians from four different countries which diversifies and spreads their musicality to include many influences from all kinds of music genres. Our work as a grassroots collective has been focused on the traditional regional music forms of Northeastern Brazil, more specifically the state of Pernambuco and surrounding areas. The opportunity to share aspects of Brazilian culture that are generally overshadowed is a wonderful means for us to share our passion with the public, establish a community and add yet more flavor to the area where we live and perform more often. Our involvement with Brazilian folklore offers an exploration into its history, which led us to understand that colorful and diverse country, but we are also constantly exploring and adding many musical elements from other areas of the globe such as Cape Verde and the Caribbean for example. Seu Jacinto is: Gina LaMotte, Tommy Ward, Lauren Rochell, Mehdi Boudra, Michael Longoria, Jan Flemming, & Frank Almendra. http://seujacinto.weebly.com
