Since that time, Jeff has spent four Carnaval seasons in Recife studying and performing maracatu and other Northeastern rhythms under Jorge Martins, Mestre Nana, and others. This January and February, he helped organize and lead Maracatu New York's immersion trip to Carnaval in Recife and Olinda.Jeff also performed for years throughout the SW United States with the Native American Award winning bands Red Earth and Native Roots, both based in Albuquerque, NM.Currently residing in Brooklyn, New York and part of the small group of North Americans who have researched and studied the music and percussion of Pernambuco, Jeff has teamed up with Scott Kettner and Maracatu New York to help share the music and culture of Pernambuco with North America and the world.
