After a very successful season performing at international festivals and prestigious music venues in Europe, Africa and Brazil, promoting his previous album Where Rio de Janeiro Meets Bahia, Mario Bakuna's latest release is 'Brazilian Landscapes'.
Conceived by Mario Bakuna, 'Brazilian Landscapes' celebrates the best of Brazilian music and features new arrangements of material by great composers such as Emilio Santiago, Marcos Valle, Claudio Bertrami, Rique Pantoja, Gilberto Gil, Djavan, João Bosco, Arismar do Espirito Santo, and the 'forrozeiros' Dominguinhos and Luiz Gonzaga. The concert has been a great success and already counts with sold-out nights in London, Paris, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Mannheim and Budapest. In Estonia, they headlined two nights at Juu Jääb Jazz Festival in a programme that had names like Kurt Rosenwinkel.
'Brazilian Landscapes' is a tribute to the culture and memory of Brazilian people and it's the result of years of inspiration Mario Bakuna drew upon while travelling through Brazil, experiencing its rhythmic and harmonic richness.
From the arid landscape in the northeast that's brought to the chorus of songs of Forró, Baião and Xaxado, to the African influence found in Ijexá, the popularity of Samba and the sophistication of Bossa Nova, Mario and his musicians celebrate the most musically rich territory on Earth.
