Brilliant Brazil –  Samba & Bossa Nova rhythms

Thursday July 30


Brilliant Brazil –
Samba & Bossa Nova rhythms

Pizza Express Jazz Club, Dean Street, Soho London

Making a welcome return to Dean Street, after their sensational sold out Pizza Express Jazz Club concert last summer, come “Brilliant Brazil”, one of the most talked about and consistently sold out Brazillian performers in London at top venues including Crazy Coqs, PizzaExpress Live Holborn and  The Other Palace Studio.

Brilliant Brazil perform classic melodies from Villa-Lobos & Antonio Carlos Jobim, including well know favourites “One Note Samba”and “The Girl from Ipanema” and more, plus compelling music from many other South American music masters, together with their original compositions.

The Luiz Morais Sextet, with Luiz on 7-string guitar plus the voice of Gabriela Kozyra – “the best Brazillian Music singer in London” -The Hoste Of Jazz, with the swinging flute of Rachel Hayter, embrace seductive vocals and compelling rhythms, supported by, piano, bass and percussion.

Luiz Morais has been playing the guitar from a young age. Immersed in the vibrant Brazilian musical culture, he built his strong musical foundations playing rhythms such as Samba, Choro, Bossa Nova and the North Eastern rhythm of Forró. He graduated in Popular Music from the University of Rio de Janeiro and can count among his teachers great masters of Brazilian guitar such as  Carrilho, Braga & Gnattali 

Brilliant Brazil return for another party of toe tapping, hip swaying, finger popping samba, bossa nova and choro music.
