About the musicians:

Celso Machado

Celso Machado is a Brazilian-born world-music virtuoso who has mastered the guitar, many kinds of percussion, and other instruments. He now makes Gibsons, BC, his home, but his music has repeatedly taken him across Brazil, Western Europe, the United States, and Canada over the past four decades. Celso has performed alongside guitar legends like Yamandu Costa and opened for jazz icons like João Bosco, Gilberto Gil, and Bebel Gilberto, and has crafted a unique sound that bridges diverse world rhythms—from the Samba, Baião, and Afoxé of Brazil to the Maqsoum of Egypt. His vibrant and eclectic performances celebrate the rich tapestry of global music traditions and contribute uniquely to disseminating Brazilian music.



Amphibioux came together through synchronicity and hope. Seeking out connection and healing, the Amphibians were brought to mellifluous wetlands, fertile with harmony and rhythm. Their performance is nothing short of a musical kaleidoscope, where samba, bossa nova, forró and baião morph to create an unforgettable and emotional soundscape. By rooting down we hope to honor the musical legends past while decorating time with the spirit of now.

She’s known for her knack for reimagining traditional tunes with innovative arrangements, always adding a Brazilian twist that makes each piece uniquely her own.
