Marcéu Lima grew up in a small town in Bahia, Brazil, where he has been influenced by his family that, for generations, has expressed their culture through rich musical manifestations. From a young age, Marcéu began practicing Capoeira and playing music with his family and his community. Marcéu is well-versed in wide range of musical styles from Reggae to Forró to traditional Afro-Brazilian Rhythms including Maracatu, Ijexá, Côco, Samba and much more. He recently moved to Santa Barbara, CA and is eager to begin a Percussion study group in order to spread his knowledge of this rich culture and to create a strong community around artistic and musical manifestations.
