A soulful blend of deep rhythm, electro jazz and contemporary folk. 

Animal Ventura is the brainchild of Brazilian born singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Fernando Aragones. What sets Animal Ventura apart is a unique ability to fuse the solid funky rhythms from his native South America with the coastal indie folk of Australian shores. To top it off his soothing and timeless vocals transitioning between English and Portuguese hold strength and passion in their delivery.
