Trio Brasiliense

Trio Brasiliense featuring Natalie Cressman
Rebecca Kleinmann, flutes/vocals
Ian Faquini, guitar/vocals
Julien Cantelm, drums
& Special guest Natalie Cressman, trombone/vocals

 Trio Brasiliense presents an intricate and exhilarating program of acoustic Brazilian music including original arrangements of music by Faquini, Pixinguinha, Jobim, Baden Powell, Guinga and Hermeto Pascoal, along with a few special surprises. Rebecca Kleinmann is a fearless improvisor who has steeped herself in musical languages of Brazilian Choro, Forró and Jazz. Brazilian born composer and guitarist Ian Faquini writes gorgeous original compositions inspired by traditional rhythms of Brazil spanning from Samba to Baião and Maracatu and inspired by harmonically-rich influences from Ravel to Duke Ellington and Guinga. Rebecca and Ian released their duo album "Brasiliense" in 2014, engineered by Jeff Cressman. Drummer Julien Cantelm of San Diego grooves with unparalleled subtlety, bringing a breadth of knowledge in Brazilian music and Jazz to his joyous, open-eared playing. Joining as a very special guest on this concert will be rising star Natalie Cressman, raised in the Bay Area, most recently based in New York City, and currently touring widely with her stunning vocal and trombone prowess. April 1st is and evening not to be missed at the Sound Room, no joke. 
(Well... a joke or two may included!)

Brasiliense Mini Social Tour

Brasiliense Mini Social Tour

Brasiliense will be making a stop on their mini tour in Santa Barbara to perform at the Brazil Arts Cafe! 

Brasiliense is musical collective of multi-instrumentalists with a shared passion for the rich musical traditions of Brazil. The music is a culmination of various forms of Brazilian music fused with jazz and other American styles, largely expressed through the distinct compositional voice of the group’s guitarist, Brazilian born Ian Faquini. As described by writer Andy Gilbert in SF Classical Voice, “Faquini writes astonishingly sophisticated Brazilian pop music in the omnivorous tradition known as MPB (música popular brasileira), which often draws heavily on jazz. Born in Brazil and raised in Berkeley, Faquini is a protégé of Guinga, the revered Brazilian guitarist and songwriter whose tunes have been recorded by dozens of MPB stars...While his harmonic palette is unmistakably inspired by Guinga’s writing, Faquini often draws on styles from Brazil’s northeast.”

Though he’s the only Brazilian musician in his band, Faquini has connected with American artists steeped in an array of Brazilian styles. Besides Faquini, the quartet features a particularly impressive array of talent: NYC-based, San Francisco-raised trombonist/vocalist Natalie Cressman of the Trey Anastasio Band, Oakland-based flautist/vocalist Rebecca Kleinmann, and San Diego-based drummer/guitarist Julien Cantelm. “With the two and three-part vocal harmonies hugging the Brazilian-accented Portuguese and warm voicings for alto flute and trombone, Brasiliense feels like a much bigger ensemble.” (Gilbert, SF Classical Voice)
