Ed Motta long-ago established himself as a force in the world of Brazilian pop, soul and funk. His latest set AOR, released in 2013 by Lab 344, proves he is still vital within the realm of Musica Popular Brasileira and The Stage Miami is set to host him along with Batuke Samba Funk and DJ Fabio Soul on Thursday, August 7, 2014. General admission tickets are $25 in advance (available online at, $35 on the day of show.

“We have been trying to bring Ed Motta to The Stage for quite some time now and we are excited about the opportunity to showcase him and his amazing live band” says Johann Torres, The Stage’s talent buyer and CEO of DNA Entertainment, one of the night’s presenting sponsors. “We feel that pairing him with one of our favorite local acts in Batuke Samba Funk is ideal and look forward to a special evening of Afro-Samba, Brazilian pop and soul.” The evening will also feature sets by DJ Fabio Soul, the evening’s other presenting sponsor.

Singer / songwriter / multi-instrumentalist and producer Motta scored early with the Brazilian soul/funk hits “Manuel”, “Vamos dançar”, “Baixo Rio” and “Um love” from his 1989 WEA Latina self-titled group debut Conexão Japeri. Subsequently, he embarked on a solo career, releasing 10 studio recordings to date, highlighted by 1993’s Entre e Ouça , Manual Pratico Para Festas Bailes e Afins, Vol.1 (1997), 2003’s Poptical and 2009’s Piquenique, plus a live album Ao Vivo (1993). AOR represents Motta’s most intricate work yet, featuring contributions from guitarists Chico Pinheiro and David T. Walker plus lyrics from Chico Amaral, Adriana Calcanhotto, Rita Lee, Dante Spinetta and wife Edna Lopes.

Batuke Samba Funk are a bilingual (Portuguese / English), high-energy Brazilian band that mixes rhythms such as funk from the 70′s with Afro-Samba, Brazilian big band, Batucada, soul and R&B. Formed in Miami in 2008 by bassist, composer, producer and Rio de Janeiro native Diogo Brown, the sextet also features guitarist Cezar Santana and is often augmented by a three-piece horn section. The goal of Batuke is to “Brazilianize” American sounds and “Americanize” Brazilian sounds in a perfect balanced fusion. The band is currently promoting its latest single “Mas Que Moça Bonita,” a smooth Brazilian pop number that sounds like a modern-day take on Sergio Mendes Brasil 66.
