With 7 albums and several awards to their credit ("  Best Samba Band  »In 2010 and in 2017 by the Brazilian Music Prize), Casuarina, a true icon of the new generation of samba carioca, is a group constantly in movement and renewal  !

After 16 years of existence in  quintet, the group starts a new period with the  departure of Joao Cavalcanti, who continues his solo adventure.  Carried by the voice of Gabriel Azevedo,  Casuarina  celebrates their new formation with the release of the single "  Eta Lelê "(Serginho Meriti / Claudemir) in December 2017, and the preparation of a new album"  +100  ”(Biscoito Fino) in 2018.

Their concerts inject a good dose of dynamism into the brilliant samba anthology  of their repertoire and perpetuate a genre that has always been present in the rich history of Brazilian music.

The new generation of samba composers will be in the spotlight and the group will be on tour to defend their 8th opus in Europe!
