Poranguí: 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 twenty 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 looping 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.
His World Soul concerts have been hosted by Lightning in a Bottle, Symbiosis, Beloved Festival, Sonic Bloom, Sedona Yoga Festival, Illuminate Film Festival, BOOM Festival, The Chopra Institute, TEDx, SXSW, Meow Wolf, and many more. Poranguí has collaborated with Shamans Dream, Liquid Bloom, Rising Appalachia, Desert Dwellers, Climbing PoeTree, Ayla Nereo, and numerous others.
In sound design and media production, Poranguí recently worked with director Mitch Schultz (“DMT: The Spirit Molecule”) and executive producer, Aubrey Marcus on “Ayahuasca”, a documentary set in the Amazon. The soundtrack to this film, released in 2016, is Poranguí’s debut solo album, which was followed with a Remix album presented by Shamans Dream and released under Desert Trax label. His self-titled live solo album releases in March 2019.
