musician. educator. author.
Marcia Bittencourt opens up the whole range of Brazilian jazz to us with great ease - sometimes rhythmic and dancing, sometimes reflective and chamber music-like. The singer from Rio de Janeiro offers a rousing program with many shades, which beyond a clichéd Brazil copy presents worth hearing compositions by Roberto Menescal, Ivan Lins, Jorge Ben Jor, Djavan, Ary Barroso and Antônio Carlos Jobim in exciting and fresh versions. Brazilian Jazz, Bossa Nova and Choro at the highest level, classics of Brazilian music and original compositions: Together with her top international musicians, she brings her audience very close to Rio de Janeiro.
