« Baraúna » is the name of a tree from the north-east of Brazil. Known for its strength and longevity in a difficult environment, it is also used to build houses. Therefore this tree is quite famous among Brazilians.
This project draws parallels between the Baraúna tree and the different rhythms of north-eastern music which are considered as one of the pillars of Brazil’s tradition and oral culture.
In an unprecedented way, five musicians who are each in their specialty, considered as spearheads in the diffusion and the transmission of the traditional brazilian music in France, propose a repertory of original compositions around a rich and varied cultural universe such as forro , ciranda, maracatu, afoxe, coco, cavalo marinho …
Barauna brings together the musicians Carlos Valverde at the pifano, Corentin Restif at the accordion, Léo Corrêa at the rabeca, Mestre Letho Nascimento and Cleyton Barros at the percussions.
Eva has been familiarized with dance and traditional music, thanks to the festival Andanças. After learning piano, keyboard and flute, she opted for the diatonic accordion in 2006. She will developed her music while she was training herself in contemporary dance. In addition, she quickly began to transmit music and dance. She played with great masters of the diatonic accordion and today she performs in multiple formations around the world : Parapente700, Ó Chibinha, Vagaço Colectivo, Trio Ronen, Tugoslavic Orkestar… The roots of her native country Portugal provide the foundations of her own musical language, enriched by Lisbon’s eclecticism and by various influences, from jazz to ex-african colonies, brazilian music, south american rhythms and the so-called « world music ».
Collectif À la Bonne Jambette invites Pé d’Estrada
À la Bonne Jambette ? It’s an organized floor ball. The collective takes its strength in acoustics and simplicity, in its surprising ability to put itself in place even in rainy weather. The music is joyful, very rhythmic, swaying, and suddenly slow, soft and groovy, played by a core of musicians ready to put their soul in vibration … The style is largely inspired from South America, Africa and, of course, Perigord, which gives the Bonne Jambette its woody, sparkling and cavernous appearance.
