The Brazilian Voyage project of mister Nilson Matta is planning an European tour between May 16 and june 15,2014. What makes the project unique is that we start from the traditional rhythms and the roots of the Brazilian music.
The trumpetplayer and singer, Greg Houben, was living in Brazil for almost 3 years to learn the music and culture and so he became a fantastic interpreter of Brazilian songs. Saxofonist John Snauwaert was visiting Brazil several times and he was working together with Nilson Matta in deferent project over the last five years. Next year he will teach at the Samba meets Jazzcamps in Rio de Janeiro and Bar Harbor in Maine (U.S.).
Nilson Matta and Renato Martins are both prominent Brazilan musicians.
