Saturday

Matuto at Conundrum Hall

Matuto combines Brazilian sounds with American folk, zydeco and bluegrass; that’s why they’ve been named American Musical Ambassadors by the U.S. State Department. The New York City-based band headlines a show Saturday at Conundrum Hall, 626 Meeting St., West Columbia. Tickets are $15; doors open at 7:30 p.m.
