Afro Brazilian Jazz Quartet has the great pleasure to present its new show based on Mario Bakuna & Edmundo Carneiro’s new album: "Where Rio de Janeiro meets Bahia". It is a journey to Rio de Janeiro, the birthplace of Bossa Nova, and Bahia, the city that best represents the powerful African influence in Brazilian music. The album recorded in Paris brings in the core of its research the Afro-Brazilian rhythms from 'Recôncavo baiano' and the charm and subtlety of bossa nova. The aim of this show and the recording of the album "Where Rio de Janeiro meets Bahia" is to propose a narrative capable of dissolving the fine line that separates music and anthropology. Searching for the synthesis of what can only be nurtured by great masters, the album is a journey through the landscapes of Dori Caymmi, as when he narrates the life of the fishermen in "Mercador de Siri”. It praises Tom Jobin's finesse in "Fotografia", a song in which the poet speaks of the solitude of the stars and the existence of an idyll. It distils the extraordinary poetry of Alcyvando Luz and Carlos Coqueijo in "É preciso perdoar".
