The Music Haven in Schenectady’s Central Park continued its musical travels around the world one concert at a time by journeying with Matuto to Northeastern Brazil and other parts of the Americas. Led by guitarist Clay Ross, this band brought its eclectic sound to a small but appreciative crowd that braved a very heavy – but quickly passing – downpour to see the band last Sunday evening.

The unusual combination of guitar, bass, accordion, trap drums and percussion served up a set of truly uncategorizable music. One could hear the sounds of roots music of all kinds – ranging from Northeast Brazilian forro to bluegrass – in the band’s spicy musical gumbo.
