Esquinas were brilliant. They created the perfect mood for my house party. Mamiko, Private Party, London

Esquinas play a mixture of Brazilian tunes, from samba to bossa novas, as well as jazz, soul and pop. Not only do they perform material in their native Portuguese, the pair can play English language songs by the likes of The Beatles, Bob Marley, Stevie Wonder and The Red Hot Chili Peppers.

The band are available as a duo, trio or quartet. They offer a rich, full sound perfect as background music at dinners, functions, parties and weddings.
