Fred Martins @ LulaWorld (May 22nd)

A highly-respected composer, both in Europe and his native Brazil, Martins makes his Canadian debut with celebrated Toronto-based Brazilian vocalist Luanda Jones, bassist George Koller and drummer Mark Kelso.

Fred Martins With Luanda Jones

Presented in partnership with the Toronto International Brazil Fest, Cafe Com Letras and Nossa TV.

One of the best composers of his generation.”(Guinga)

Outstanding among Brazilian singer and songwriters of his generation, Fred Martins joins us from Spain to perform diverse repertoire embedded in the musical tradition of the emblematic Brazilian song-artisans. Brazilian Canadian singer Luanda Jones received rave reviews for her 2009 release Aquarela. A captivating but subtle performer, Luanda is a unique voice on the Canadian jazz landscape, blending samba, bossa nova, funk and jazz. Two of Toronto’s most highly-respected and in demand jazz musicians, Mark Kelso and Geoge Koller, will provide the rhythm section for this one-night-only concert.

Marcio Faraco @ SWM (March 18th)

Marcio Faraco  

Presented by Small World Music.

Brazilian-born, Paris-based for over 20 years, Márcio Faraco stays true to the traditional music of Brazil, melding the language of the samba, bossa nova and choro in his evocative songs. While his music draws likely comparisons with the masters – Chico Buarque, Milton Nascimento, João Gilberto and Caetano Veloso – he is adept at straying from his South American roots adding Portuguese fado, African rhythms, and Cuban beats. Featuring delicate and masterful guitar work, his vocals are beautiful and engaging. Márcio is joined by Philippe Baden Powell on piano, the son of the legendary Brazilian guitarist Baden Powell.
