“… the light-fingered grace of the bossa nova.” – The New York Times
Brazilian guitarist/singer/songwriter Márcio Faraco has quietly built a solid international reputation, mixing bossa nova and samba with a French twist, since the release of his debut solo album in 2000. Sometimes referred to as the “Leonard Cohen of Brazil,” Faraco’s compositions employ a variety of rhythmic styles rooted in the unlimited breadth of Brazil’s musical culture, the South American sonic pastiche of African, European, and indigenous traditions. The early influences on his songwriting, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Joao Gilberto and Vinicius de Moraes, still reverberate strongly through his current musical compositions. Cajuiero, his seventh and most recent recording, captures Faraco at an inventive peak in his continual artistic evolution. Don’t miss his Kuumbwa Jazz premiere! .
