Brasilian World Music with Fernando Paiva (comp., Drums, perc.) And Verena Loipetsberger (voice)

This year the UAJO invites the composer, drummer and percussionist Fernando Paiva from Porto Alegre (Brazil) to jointly create the latest program. Inspired by his homeland, Paiva draws from the sources of Brazilian music, jazz, African and also classical music in his diverse compositions. The musicians of the UAJO act as experienced arrangers and transform the sound of this special soundscape into an orchestral experience. Compositions by the band members complement the program and also focus on musical styles from South America, Africa and India. Verena Loipetsberger, jazz singer also from Upper Austria, enriches the melange of musical influences with her personal experiences and her love for music from all over the world. After 27 years of continuous creative work, 11 CD productions on the one hand of her own projects, on the other hand of collaborations with guests such as Kenny Wheeler , Jack Walrath, Mike Gibbs, Tini Kainrath and concerts with international jazz greats such as Toshiko Akyioshi, Maria João, Mike Stern, Richard Bona, Mike Mainieri, Richard Galliano and Jane Monheit, the UAJO has opened another chapter in its search for exciting new programs Big band projects. We guarantee you will experience a night full of rhythm, mantras and melodies, in which the music goes straight to the heart and in which European jazz and European musical traditions meet the sounds of Brazil and world music.
