Mato Grosso (“Thick Bushes”) is one of the states of Brazil, largely covered with Amazon rainforest, wetlands and savanna plains. The band chose the name in support of a court decision in 2012 that suspended the construction of a dam in the Brazilian Amazon, a project that seriously threatens the livelihoods of indigenous tribes in the area of Sete Quedas (“Seven Waterfalls”), an area that is considered sacred for the Kayabi, Mundurucu and Apiaká peoples.
