Orrù Mar Rocha – Live at MIA 2015

Orrù Mar Rocha Trio, recorded live at MIA 2015 and beautifully released by the Swiss label EndTitles.

The trio was brought to life by Paulo Chagas, the curator and the commander-in-chief along with Fernando Simões, of MIA – a festival that takes place every May in Atouguia da Baleia, Portugal. He invited us to play at the old St. Joseph’s Church for the opening of the festival and we’ve met just before the concert, while sound checking.

It worked so well that we settled as a trio and EndTitles decided to release the recording of that concert.

Here’s the info about it and pre-orders are available here.

We are:
Adriano Orrù – contra bass
Maria do Mar – violin
Luiz Rocha – clarinet/bass clarinet

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

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.
