A conversation with MAURO REFOSCO
Interview with Brazilian percussionist, Mauro Refosco, on the environmental and social issues Brazil is currently facing. After beginning his touring career in 1994 as Byrne’s percussionist, Mauro returned to NYC and joined cult creative ensemble The Lounge Lizards, playing experimental punk jazz with bandleader John Lurie. In between stints with Byrne and several other in demand projects he formed his band, Forro in the Dark, which has recorded four full-length albums and performed at major domestic and international festivals. Mauro has also composed music and soundtracks for movies, television, fashion shows and Off-Broadway plays, and is the owner of SuperLegal Studio in Bushwick, Brooklyn.
