Caka!ak Thunder

We’ve been bringing beats to the streets in support of people’s movements since 2003. While we are deeply influenced by the rhythms and history of Brazilian Samba, we consider ourselves a radical drum corps, not a true samba band (escola/school). A testament to the music’s global pervasiveness, we actually learned our first samba licks from an escola en Stockholm, Sweden, called Yacumbe. While we have been known to travel on occasion, we’re proud to do most of our playing around home in NC.
