An Afternoon Of Brazilian Bluegrass Jazz: Instrumental Samba, Choro + Bossa Nova / STEPHEN GUERRA + FELICIA DE SANTIS

  • CAFE NINE 250 State Street New Haven, CT, 06510 United States (map)
 Event ends at 7:00 pm
Brazilian Bluegrass Jazz? No, this is not a hybrid genre of which you’ve never heard. It’s the drive and thick texture of bluegrass paired with improvisation reminiscent of jazz. Every month we get together and play original interpretations of standards from the great Brazilian songbook: instrumental choro, samba, and bossa nova. Our goal is to bring the vibe and swing of the weekend choro and samba hangs in Rio de Janeiro to Sunday afternoons in New Haven.
