Ramiro Musotto is known for his exceptional and innovative work on the berimbau, a one-string percussion instrument often used in Brazilian capoeira. His music fuses together Latin American folk, carnival samba and Brazilian pop, juxtaposing these traditional forms with African rhythms and electronic sounds.

Musotto's latest album, Civilizaco & Barbarye, just came out in the U.S.
