is a project by the pianist and composer from São Paulo, Raquel Freitas, which resulted in a show where she portrays her musical trajectory and her research as a musician.
With influences from Brazilian music, jazz and classical music, she brings arrangements that incorporate these languages into unique interpretations that define her style.
The Brazilian Piano and the Percussion
One of the characteristics of Brazilian popular music is ist rhythmic diversity. All this variety of rhythms – from the beating of Samba schools to the most varied types of traditional folk festivals – appears in Brazilian percussion.
Seeking a dialogue between these rhythms and instruments so important in her musical roots, Raquel invites percussionists of different formations to share the stage with her in special editions of the Brazilian Piano show.
The guest for this show is Ícaro Kái
– Brazilian percussionist. Ícaro has great influence of the traditional Brazilian music experienced in samba, choro and traditional folk brazilian music.. Graduated in contemporary music he brings all these references in his way of playing.
