Bringing the best of Brazilian music to the Bay Area!


Netto D'Souza was born in Pará, Brazil. He received his first guitar as a gift when he was 9 years old. It was twice as big as him and the idea of learning the instrument did not appeal to him. Over the years, however, Netto taught himself to play. He wrote his first song when he was 19:

"Descobri que o teu corpo

Tem o formato do meu violão

Cada vez que eu toco

Sai uma canção pra gente

Se amar..."


"I found out that your body

Has the shape of my guitar

Every time I play

It's a love song for us"

Netto currently lives in California, USA, and is the leader of the Netto D'Souza Band.

The music of Barakemi is based in Afro Brazilian traditions and mixed with today's popular styles from Bahia, Brazil and the Bay Area in the US. Barakemi represents unity, peace and strength.
