The African rhythms that form the basis of samba, calypso and jazz will come together in Trinidad& Tobago in concert at Queen’s Hall on Wednesday (Jan.31). Take 2 The Concert: Afro Calypso and Latin Jazz Fusion has as its theme, Journey to Brazil and will pay homage to Brazilian rhythms.
Headline act is Nilson Matta’s Brazilian Voyage Band featuring Fabiana Masili, Fernando Saci, Julian Shore and Matta.
The Genesis of the Brazilian Voyage band came from a single event in 1992. Matta was asked to put a band together for an important convention about Brazilian culture at The Cooper Hiwitt Museum in New York City.
Since then Matta decided to maintain the Brazilian Voyage playing repertoire music from different regions of Brazil with their unique melodies and rhythmic patterns.
