Banzo for Piano and Percussion is the result of the creative encounter between the musicians Edmundo Carneiro and Ricardo Fiúza in a fertile field of confluences, where the multiple rhythmic matrices of Brazilian musical culture seek space for experimentation through the interrelationship with the spheres of music.
In this context, the duo presents a multifaceted universe, which naturally mixes the roots of Brazilian music in its varied rhythmic, melodic and harmonic hues and is creative in its greatest expression.

Edmundo Carneiro is a Brazilian percussionist based in Paris for over 30 years, Edmundo Carneiro toured over 66 countries and worked with international music figures such as Baden Powell, Tânia Maria, Steave Gadd, Ana de Hollanda, Rosinha de Valençia, Antony Jackson, Monica Passos, Chucho Valdes. Percussionist of his own style, Carneiro also experienced successfully electronic music by working with several artits and DJs such as Saint-Germain, Next Evidence, Bob Sinclar, Schazz, Rive gauche, Charles Schilling, Stéphane Pompougnac.
‘Mais do que um percussionista, Edmundo Carneiro é um feiticeiro’ - Maria de Medeiros. (“More than a percussionist, Edmundo Carneiro is a magician” )
