The Mario Bakuna Band integrates the rhythmic roots of Brazilian music and its sophisticated harmonies in a remarkable performance that celebrates some of the greatest Brazilian composers. Samba jazz is a music language that emerged in Brazil, specifically in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, which mixes elements of samba and bebop. Music that is a fusion between jazz and Brazil's syncopated samba.

Featuring: Mario Bakuna on Acoustic Guitar and Vocals Sam Watts on Piano Matheus Nova on Bass Marcinho Pereira on Drums

With arrangements by Mario Bakuna, the band will play some original compositions and re-read masters of samba jazz such as Emilio Santiago, Marcos Valle, Claudio Bertrami, Rique Pantoja, Toninho Horta, Johnny Alf, Edu Lobo and the 'forrozeiro' Dominguinhos.

Mario Bakuna is a London-based Brazilian composer, singer and guitar player, with twen-ty years of professional experience. He is a graduate of the Free University of Music in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Whilst there he studied with musicians such as: Olmir Stocker, Roberto Sion and Roberto Bomilcar (pianist who played with Frank Sinatra during his visit to Brazil).
