Brazilian Landscapes'

Mario Bakuna Band

ALBUM LAUNCHING SHOW

Featuring:

Mario Bakuna on Acoustic Guitar and Vocals

Matheus Nova on Bass

Marcinho Pereira on Drums

Sam Watts on Piano

'Brazilian Landscapes' is the new project conceived by Mario Bakuna with arrangements by Mario Bakuna, Matheus Nova, Marcinho Pereira, and Sam Watts. The band will play some original compositions and re-read great composers such as Emilio Santiago, Marcos Valle, Claudio Bertrami, Rique Pantoja, Toninho Horta, Johnny Alf, Edu Lobo, and the 'forrozeiro' Dominguinhos, in a remarkable performance that celebrates the best of Brazilian Music.

'Brazilian landscapes' is the result of years of inspiration traveling throughout Brazil and experiencing its rhythmic and harmonic richness. The arid landscape in the Northeast of Brazil that's brought to the chorus of songs of forró, baião and xaxado. The African influence found in Ijexá. The popularity of Samba. The sophistication of Bossa Nova. 'Brazilian landscapes' is a painting of the culture and memory of the Brazilian people at the height of creation.

Mario Bakuna is a London-based Brazilian composer, singer and guitar player, with twenty years of professional experience. He is a graduate of the Free University of Music in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Whilst there he studied with musicians such as: Olmir Stocker, Roberto Sion and Roberto Bomilcar (pianist who played with Frank Sinatra during his visit to Brazil).

His study focuses on Afro-Brazilian music, Samba, Jazz and Bossa Nova.

He travelled to Europe to expand his research, and since moving to London, he has been performing alongside musicians such as Jean Toussaint, Liam Noble, Roberto Manzin, Ricardo dos Santos, Edmundo Carneiro, Cacau Queiroz, Alain Jean Marie, Dudu Penz, Nelson Ayres and Filó Machado.

It will be a memorable night!
