Abelita Mateus' rich cultural and musical background gives her playing a rare uncontrived soulfulness that is complete with artistic and emotional authenticity. This can be heard on her new album Mixed Feelings.

This album features Abelita Mateus on piano and vocals, Peter Slavov on bass, Diego Urcola on trumpet, Matt Marantz on tenor saxophone, Alex Kautz on drums, Phillip Gillette on percussions, and Romero Lubambo on guitar.

Join Albelita and me as we talk about making the album, teaching, Gilberto Gil, Botucatu, and other carefully related things.
