The Afro-Samba Jazz Concert brings together a group talented Brazilian and American musicians dedicated to the preservation of Brazilian music at its best. Dill Costa (vocal), Luciano Antonio (guitar/vocal), Heitor Garcia (drums/percussion), Jack Zara (bass), Marcin Fahmy (piano), and guest Pharez Whitted (trumpet), will perform the music from the one of the greatest recordings ever released in MPB (Música Popular Brasileira). Afro-Sambas, a partnership between guitar player Baden Powell and Vinicius de Moraes marked the most unforgettable music in search of the African roots and the Afro-Brazilian religion, Candomblé.
