Glecio Nascimento and Paulinho Fonseca: Fonkera
A lot of the funk comes from our right hand, which is why Glecio Nascimento is so good at it. His unreal plucking technique lets him dish out a flurry of notes and dizzying syncopated grooves.
He lets it all out in this video with Jota Quest drummer Paulinho Fonseca (aka Fonk). “Fonkera” is a jam that starts with Nascimento exploring the upper register before Fonseca drops in with a beat. Together they dig into the groove, eventually trading bars back and forth before the big finish.
