Vinicius Cantuaria @ Ronnie Scotts
An album sales sensation in Brazil, Vinicius lives like an underground musician in New York. Searching for the new and unknown, he’s collaborated with the jazz of Bill Frisell and the eclectic multimedia of David Byrne, reflecting his own musical style, and he still loves to get sounds out of everything, even pizza boxes.
For his last album, Samba Carioca, he invited 3 veteran pianists to experiment and play around, being João Donato, Marcos Valle and Brad Mehldau. Explaining his inspiration he said that “piano helped bring samba into contact with other cultures”, it helped the crossover between samba and jazz.
Lineup Confirmed: Vinicius Cantuaria – guitars, vocals, Bill Frisell – electric guitars, Marivaldo Dos Santos – percussion.
11th & 12th January, £25.00 – £42.50
