Porangui - GAIA RISING TOUR 2019: World Soul Music to Move Body Mind Spirit
Reared among the three cultures of Brazil, Mexico and the U.S., Poranguí was steeped in various traditional forms of music, healing and ceremony since birth. Drawing from his cross-cultural background and ethnomusicology training at Duke University, Poranguí has over fifteen years of international work experience as an artist, musician, educator, filmmaker, consultant and therapist, utilizing the healing properties of sound and movement to foster our individual and collective well being.
As a live musician, world soul artist and one-man orchestra Poranguí weaves ancestral songs and indigenous rhythms from around the globe. Creating his performances from scratch using looping technology, Poranguí’s live grooves range from meditative to dance party, moving the body, lifting the spirit, and transcending the divide between performer and audience. An evening with Poranguí might take you on a journey from deep, earthy didgeridoo grooves to high-vibe ecstatic Brazilian beats to blissful African kalimba lullabies. Serenades and storytelling to beat boxing and booty shaking: Together, these make an unforgettable experience.
The soundtrack to the film “Ayahuasca,” released in 2016, is Poranguí’s debut solo album. 2017 brought a Remix album of “Ayahuasca" presented by Shamans Dream and released under Desert Trax label, as well as a number of collaborative tracks with Liquid Bloom. He is releasing his first live solo album on March 1, 2019, titled ‘Poranguí Live’. The work continues to unfold. For Poranguí, this diverse creative practice is not only a profession but a calling.
