Welcome to Maracutaya, your passport to a musical journey that transcends borders and eras!

Maracutaya is an Oxford-based musical marvel, a quartet that brings together the essence of Brazil with the energy of Oxfordshire. Comprising three proud natives of Brazil – William Volpato, the captivating voice and master of guitar and harmonicas; Guga Volpato, the rhythmic heartbeat on drums; and Everton Barbato, the groovy bass maestro – alongside the seasoned Oxford keyboard virtuoso Jeff Young, this four-piece band is a harmonious fusion of talent and passion.

Our repertoire is a sonic tapestry that weaves together the golden age of Brazilian bossa, the soulful blues, and the infectious funk of the 70s. But we don’t stop there; we take you on a musical adventure across continents, adding our unique touch to a diverse selection of English and American classics that share the same feel. Our performances are not just covers; they are well-elaborated alternative versions that breathe new life into every note, making them unmistakably Maracutaya.

When you experience Maracutaya live, you’re not just attending a performance; you’re stepping into a vibrant, groovy, and dance-inspiring atmosphere. Our music is more than a soundtrack; it’s an invitation to let loose, to move to the rhythm, and to feel the music in your soul. Whether it’s a lively celebration, an intimate gathering, or any occasion in between, Maracutaya is your go-to choice for an unforgettable musical experience.

Join us on this rhythmic journey, where cultures collide, and music unites. Maracutaya – where the world’s melodies come to life.
