The Brazilian 2wins are a fun, high-energy band that inject influences from pop, hip-hop, reggae, funk, rock, jam fusion and improvisation to send your ears on an exotic vacation. Walter and Wagner Caldas are internationally recognized and have played in Brazil, Spain, Portugal, New York, Los Angeles, and for international dignitaries at the Iowa Capital Building in Des Moines. Joining the Caldas brothers are bass player Riley Scheetz and drummer Raqwon Reed.
The band uses electric violin, vocals, cavaquinho (Brazilian ukulele), bass and drums to crank out their own signature sound. Their musical talent, combined with their distinctive appearance and entertaining stage presence, makes for an unforgettable experience.
The Brazilian 2wins are big supporters of nonprofit organizations such as Colleges Against Cancer and Relay for Life. The band recently concluded a six-month Brazilian tour and will be performing at UF as part of a nationwide U.S. college tour. This month they are expected to be featured on the covers of Campus Life Trends Magazine and Campus Activities Magazine.
