We are so excited to present a project focusing on the music of the wonderful Rio-born guitarist/composer Durval Ferreira. Although he recorded only one album under his own name, Batida Diferente, he composed for, produced, and recorded with countless artists including Cannonball Adderley, Sarah Vaughan, Leny Andrade, Emilio Santiago, Ed Lincoln, and the Tamba Trio.
Ferreira’s daughter, Amanda Bravo, often performs at the Bottles Bar in Rio. She has just released her own album with several compositions by her father. She’s also featured on Batida Diferente, most notably on a rendition of “Nostalgia da Bossa” – a melancholy tribute to an era gone by.
Our tribute concert, a collaboration with Sounds of Brazil PDX that will feature a variety of musicians, will take place at Classic Pianos on May 4 at 7:30. Tickets are available at this link.
