Music and Rhythms of Brazil!
fareed
“Welcome to Jazzup Glen Ellyn 2018! This year our theme is the music and rhythms of Brazil! I am excited to present this year’s lineup of wonderful bands, musicians, representing the best Brazilian Jazz from Chicago and around the world. Luciano Antonio and Paulinho Garcia are both wonderful guitarists and singers representing a more modern and more traditional take on the Bossa Nova. I will bring my group in to play our version of classic, funky Sergio Mendes numbers.

The Choro, Caipira and Samba music of Brazil is showcased Tempero Brasileiro, Arcomusical and in Chicago Samba. We will have a Samba Parade marching thru the grounds, and even a clinic on samba dancing and percussion playing, so the whole community can join in!

Finally with Neusa Sauer and Som Brazil we will honor the late Chicago-based Brazilian Pianist Breno Sauer.

The diversity of art and culture in the Chicago area is unparalleled, and I am overjoyed to bring these wonderful musicians right to our Main Street downtown Glen Ellyn.”
