Rua 6 is an exciting Brazilian/World Music combo featuring André Rievers, Drew Dudley, Vlamir Abbud, Juan Bonini, Wilfredo Castillo, Jason LaMarca, and Cooper Tisdale. They play an eclectic mix of Brazilian Samba, and World-beat music. They are quite simply the best in Latin entertainment in Atlanta.
A veritable UN of music and dance, this wildly popular ensemble has built a diverse following during the last 4 years, by bringing a unique blend of World Music (Brazilian, Spanish, Caribbean, African and American rhythms) into Atlanta’s growing melting pot.
These four guys from Brazil, Panama and the US, have established a new breed of sound, classifying themselves as World Music with a strong Brazilian accent.
Recently, Rua 6’s local success, has helped their home base venue, Loca Luna, (where they perform weekly) receive the ranking of one of the Top 10 Latin Clubs in the country, according to USA Today. And with everything heading in the right direction, the group promises to keep people dancing.
UPDATE: Rua 6 band leader André Rievers moved to Los Angeles, California in July 2013. Rua 6 rejoins for annual reunion concerts when André visits Atlanta, Georgia.
