With more than 10 musical attractions, Sampa Jazz Fest presents at its third edition in São Paulo
The third edition of the Sampa Jazz Fest takes place from September 20 to September 22 in São Paulo. The program has more than ten musical attractions and it also brings speakers, becoming a good environment for cultural exchange between professionals and the public interested in this musical rhythm. Among the confirmed names, there are Richard Bona, a legendary Cameroonian bass player, and the Brazilian multi-instrumentalist Hermeto Pascoal. The attractions also includes the group Bixiga 70, which has just released a new album, as well as Esdras Nogueira, Carol Panesi, Meretrio, Nelson Ayres Big Band and Dani Gurgel.
Bona is considered one of the most respected musicians in contemporary jazz. Bassist, composer and singer, he is also known for mixing classical jazz with African sounds. Born in Cameroon, he has played with many established bands and artists, such as Stevie Wonder, and has a solid career as a solo artist.
The line-up is dedicated to instrumental rhythms. The festival is curated and directed by the musician, producer and entrepreneur Daniel Nogueira. São Paulo was chosen due the fact that it is the largest metropolis in Latin America and a powerful showcase of Brazilian diversity.
The event is a production of Inhaus Entertainment, which is part of the Brasil Music Exchange (BME), a Brazilian music export project carried out through a partnership between Brasil, Música & Artes (BM&A) and the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil).
According to the commercial director of Inhaus Entertainment, Juliano Libman, the event seeks to merge the attractions with many types of musical production. “We want, with Sampa Jazz, to encourage and explore the cultural plurality promoted by this musical genre, adding an audience of all ages and offering opportunities for new music exponents,” he concludes.
