Creative Fest – 2015 – Lisbon

Back in the groove after some time recording and chilling out in Brasilia, my hometown in Brazil!

It’s great to be playing once again with Adriano Orrù and Maria do Mar. We’re now at the 2015 edition of the Creative Fest, a cool festival organized by the label Creative Sources, where we’ll release an album we recorded live at St. Joseph’s church, during MIA – another great Portuguese festival, on May 2015. The Swedish label EndTitles is releasing it and the pre-orders are available at their web. Click here to grab it. We’re so happy about it and Maria just can’t stop smiling!!

So, the gig is at Galeria Zé dos Bois, and here’s the Facebook event.

Those Free Improvisation enthusiasts, friends and followers that are in Lisbon right now please feel welcome to drop in.
