"We'll keep playing your music. This will be the soundtrack of the year." - Mark Torres (Marcos)


Still working on that hot first release.



Reared among the three cultures of Brazil, Mexico and the U.S., Poranguí was steeped
in various traditional forms of music, healing and ceremony since birth. Drawing from
his cross-cultural background and ethnomusicology training at Duke University,
Poranguí has over fifteen years of international work experience as an artist,
musician, educator, filmmaker, consultant and therapist, utilizing the healing
properties of sound and movement to foster our individual and collective well being.

As a live musician, world soul artist and one-man orchestra Poranguí weaves ancestral
songs and indigenous rhythms from around the globe. Creating his performances from
scratch using looping technology, Poranguí’s live grooves range from meditative to
dance party, moving the body, lifting the spirit, and transcending the divide between
performer and audience. An evening with Poranguí might take you on a journey from
deep, earthy didgeridoo grooves to high-vibe ecstatic Brazilian beats to blissful
African kalimba lullabies. Serenades and storytelling to beat boxing and booty
shaking: Together, these make an unforgettable experience.

Poranguí has traveled and performed internationally with renowned artists, with
highlights including a European tour, recording with the BBC in London at the Jazz
Café and the PBS Singer-Songwriter Series, plus performing as the featured artist for
SXSW Yoga Soundscapes Series. In sound design and media production, Poranguí
recently worked with director Mitch Schultz (“DMT: The Spirit Molecule”) and
executive producer, Aubrey Marcus on “Ayahuasca”, a documentary set in the
Amazon. The soundtrack to this film, released in 2016, is Poranguí’s debut solo

In his parallel practice as a therapeutic bodyworker providing individual sessions in
private practice, Poranguí draws on his academic background in neuroscience, his
family legacy in the healing arts, and his training as a licensed massage therapist. His
“Myorhythmic Release” technique combines the healing properties of sound,
movement, and breath, supporting clients from all backgrounds and health conditions
in finding freedom from the limitations and suffering of old patterns and trauma.
