Tamandua – Brazilian choro and samba, Tico Tico Trio & The Jamie Mac Hammond Combo
A Sunday night session to get your hips a swingin. Start with some Brazilian Jazz, Samba and Choro with Tico Tico Trio and Tamandua led by flautist extraordinaire Asha Henfry and a host of fabulous musicians. Then stick around for something a little different with the Jamie Mac Hammond Combo weaving together flavours of blues, jazz, RnB, and soul.
Choro has been dubbed the “New Orleans Jazz of Brazil” – it lies in the heart of Brazil’s musical culture. As the urban music of Brazil it is vibrant, highly virtuosic with European and African influences interwoven in a lively and fascinating musical genre.
Having all studied with Brazilian music legend Doug de Vries and in Brazil, the members of Tamandua are experts in the field. They bring a fresh, contemporary approach with a line-up of flute (Asha Henfry), guitar (Mario Lattuada), cavaquinho (Josh Bridges) and drum kit (Al Kerr) playing music from the complete gamut of choro; 19th century to world premieres. Fast, energetic and addictive. Tamandua play with a true Brazilian instinct. They just know how to swing it.
Tico Tico Trio
Mario Lattuada (guitar) leads this trio with Asha Henfry (flute) and Josh Bridges (double bass and cavaquinho) playing music from Brazil, Cuba, Argentina and Los Andes.
