Brazilian Master Drummer Carlos Ferreira is one of Australia’s most exciting and innovative interpreters of Samba Jazz and Brazilian rhythms. Born and raised in Vila Isabel, Rio de Janeiro, he moved to Australia in 1985, founding MelSamba (Australia’s first Samba School), going on to train people of all ages both in Australia and around the world. Through his bands, including BrazJaz and Suingue Brazuca, he has introduced Samba Jazz (an unique genre of music created in Rio during the 60’s, spearheaded by saxophonist J.T. Meirelles) to musicians and audiences.
Dany Maia, from Salvador da Bahia, brings the authentic sounds of Brazilian music to Australian audiences. A reflection of the cultural melting pot in which Dany was born and raised, her music merges the classic Bossa Nova, Jazz and Samba tunes. A multi-talented performer with an irrepressible stage presence, Dany Maia embodies the true spirit of Brazil.
