Brazilian slang for "country bumpkin," Matuto plays original music inspired by Northeastern Brazilian Rhythms and American Folk. Over the past 3 years, Ross has submerged himself in Brazilian rhythms as a member of Cyro Baptista's world renowned percussion ensemble "Beat the Donkey." With Matuto, this South Carolina native mixes the best of Bluegrass and Baiao for a sound like a Carnival in the Appalachian Mountains.
