Por que "Boum my Beef ?”

A mandolin and a guitar that make an ox, original songs, an enchanted steer Brazil, a nostalgic tune of Darius Milhaud, an ox on the roof, a carnival samba, are the ingredients of this musical spectacle.

Mas o que é Boum my Beef? Making the ox? It's a strange way to call these informal musical gatherings! The music leads us to discover the Parisian atmosphere of the crazy, time of a bistro called “An Ox on the Roof”.

Let us rediscover the inspirations of Darius Milhaud composer who spent two years of his life in Rio de Janeiro, where he brought some musical ideas (and cattle!) for their compositions. In The River, samba brings us to a frantic carnival 1917, which will resume in chorus a song called "The Ox on the Roof".

And what this bull was doing on the roof? The answer is maybe my Boi Bumba, a musical tradition and dance of northeastern Brazil where they speak of enchanted ox.
