The sound of Brazil with a twist of jazz

We perform a wide variety of music from beautiful samba and Bossa Nova tunes by legendary Brazilian composers, such as Gilberto Gil, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Caetano Veloso and Djavan through to contemporary Brazilian music by Hermeto Pascoal and Luciana Souza. We are highly experienced musicians and have performed at some renowned venues and numerous events all over the world from São Paulo, Tokyo to London. With Yuko's background in jazz, she has performed at jazz clubs such as Vortex jazz club and The Spice of Life Soho and takes her jazz approach to the Brazilian music. She has released her Brazilian jazz album Verde in Jan 2018 which is available on iTunes and Spotify. Paulo, the guitarist, has fully immersed himself in Brazilian and classical music , and has made some TV/radio appearances and including BBC1 ("Blue Peter"), BBC4 ("The Girl From Ipanema" )and Radio4 ("Broadcast House"). We can also be available in trio and quartet with sax, bass and percussion.
