Jacare Banda

ab 500 EUR

Band - “Jacaré “ is a Brazilian Samba quartet with a passion to bring old melodies and new rythms together

Was wir anbieten

The Berlin-based quartet of French, Portuguese and Brazilian musicians met at the back of a Spätkauf on Reichenberger Strasse playing traditional Brazilian music every Sunday. After a year and a half the neighbours eventually brought an end to the festive event, but the musical friendship remained and 2 years later this quartet was born.

“Jacaré “ performs original compositions inspired by old Brazilian samba melodies. Their repertoire includes waves of Carribean Biguines and breezes of Mornas from Cabo-Verde. The show is an introduction to the history of Samba, its instruments, it's poetry, and unique rythms; enriched by the cultural background and sensitivity of each musician involved.

Félix Huet (Fr) - Guitar, Vocals
Gonçalo Mortagua (Pt)- Tenor Saxophone, Vocals
Alex Rigaud (Br) - Tan Tan
Helena Fontaine (Fr) - Pandeiro, Trumpet, Vocals
