The inexhaustible source of Brazilian music: Marcos Valle y Azymuth, live in Barcelona

  • The veteran Brazilian artists debut in Spain with a concert in Barcelona on September 4th

Diggers of Brazilian music love him. And it is hardly surprising:  since he started recording music in 1963, Marcos Valle has been a cornucopia of rare grooves, exotica, samba, bossa, soundtracks, rock, funk, disco and psychedelia. But for some time now the Carioca artist is no longer a secret shared only by collectors of hidden originals and/or opportune reissues. The legacy of Marcos Valle has bounced back and his rating has soared again, and his name is the proof that in the Brazilian music encyclopaedia there is never small print. 

Azymuth’s music rhymes in assonance with Marcos Valle’s samba period. The jazz-fusion by the trio formed by Jose Roberto Bertrami, Alex Malheiros and Ivan Conti explored paths untrodden even by the great explorers of permeable jazz. Its hybridisations with samba and funk reached their peak with the international success, Jazz Carnival, a title that in only two words sums up all the ideas and emotions encapsulated in Azymuth’s music.

After years of remixes and covers, Marcos Valle and Azynuth, the two and only, coincide in a double bill that in co-production with Caprichos de Apolo brings two Brazilian artists that the History of popular music needs to reassess, positively of course, to Spain for the first time.
