The Music of Brazil with the Duda Lucena Quartet
February 13 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
One event on February 13, 2020 at 8:15 pm
Brazilian-born guitarist and vocalist Duda Lucena and his quartet heat up the JAZZ ROOM for one special night of music devoted to his homeland Brazil.
Duda Lucena grew up playing guitar in Brazil, composing his first song on guitar at age 12. On tour in Mexico, Lucena fell in love and eventually followed his now wife to her hometown of Charleston. He is now considered a pivotal force of Brazilian music on the jazz scene.
Brazilian jazz became popular in the United States in the 1960’s and represents a fusion of jazz with the Brazilian choro, samba, and bossa nova. It’s the perfect evening of music to heat up your weekend.
Musicians: Duda Lucena on guitar and vocals, Gerald Gregory on piano, Ron Wiltrout on drums, and Kevin Hamiltoon bass.
