music has always been free,like the birds,the water we drink, the sun
and in reality there is no way to cage music if you don't want to kill it.
have you heard of anyone able to imprison love,passion,despair or joy ?
very few seem to remember or even understand this simple truth but more are starting to realize it
Saxophonist Thiago França comes after Metá-Metá , with a constellation of musicians like Kiko Dinucci, Marcelo Cabral, Samba Ossalê and Wellington "Pimpa" Moreira under the collective name of Sambanzo ( Samba & the Yoruba Banzo which has a meaning similar to the blues or the longing for the Motherland that the slaves felt) that lovingly prepared a powerful afrobeat ,samba and jazz conversation with the Afro-Brazilian roots and they are offering it to anyone wishing to dig into this new global African sound that is unfolding as a celebration from São Paulo to Addis Ababa and to all corners .
thank you Thiago França and Sambanzo. Música livre, sempre!
