A propos de Tribute to Joao Gilberto by Mario Bakuna

João Gilberto, the great pioneer and father of Bossa Nova in Brazil in the late fifties, is the focus of this special concert performed on guitar and vocals by Mario Bakuna. Featuring reinterpretations and Mario’s own compositions, we will be treated to traditional elements of samba, syncopated rhythms of plucked chords, along more contemporary jazz. In Brazil, Mario Bakuna has played alongside the trombonist Itacir Bocato, guitarist Renato Consorte, and pianist Nelson Aires, just to name a few. He now resides in London.
Mario Bakuna's website:
Mario Bakuna is a Brazilian composer, arranger, singer and guitar player. A graduate of the Free University of Music in Sao Paulo, Brazil, he studied with musicians such as Olmir Stocker, Roberto Sion and Roberto Bomilcar (the pianist who played with Frank Sinatra during his visit to Brazil).
Mario focuses on the development of a music repertoire inspired by the greats of Afro-Brazilian Music, Samba, Jazz and Bossa Nova. In addition to developing new arrangements of music by enshrined Brazilian artists as Tom Jobim, Dorival Caymmi, Paulo Moura, and João Donato, in recent years he has been working on reinterpretations of Samba Jazz - a musical genre that emerged in Rio de Janeiro in the 1950s and was led by musicians like Luiz Eça, Tamba Trio, and Edson Machado. Their repertoire was based on Brazilian Standards with more sophisticated harmonies inspired by the post-Bossa Nova movement.
He travelled to Europe to expand his knowledge and skills and since settling in London has performed alongside musicians such as Jean Toussaint, Liam Noble, Ricardo dos Santos, Edmundo Carneiro, Cacau Queiroz, Alain Jean Marie, Dudu Penz, and Filó Machado.
Mario has recently been on tour promoting the album recorded alongside the percussionist Edmundo Carneiro - ‘Where Rio de Janeiro Meets Bahia’ - performing successful shows in London (Pizza Express, 606 Jazz Club, Ronnie Scott's, Ealing Jazz Festival, The Crypt Jazz Club, The Jazz Café), Brussels (Bouche à Oreille, Chapelle de Boondael), Paris (Sunset Sunside, 38Riv, Toulx Saint Croix Jazz Festival), Switzerland (La Spirale, Neuchatel Collegiale Church), Amsterdam (Teatro Munganga, Pllek, Jazz Café Alto), etc
