Manoel Cruz

Born:

Bassist, composer, arranger and producer.

The development of an authorial work was natural to Manoel Cruz.

The experience gained as sideman of several artists of the most varied styles of Brazilian music is translated into his instrumental compositions with a regional accent: from baião to samba, from maracatu to forró, combining technique with improvisation freedom provided by comtemporary Jazz. Such fusion resulted in the following CDs: Alcatéia (2002) and Under My Soul (2012) also on DVD recorded live at Humbouldt Theater.

Manoel Cruz presented himself in Concert Houses and Festivals all over the country. In 2013 he was invited to perform at the closing of the XIV Santo Domingo Jazz Festival in the Dominican Republic, being the first Brazilian Artist to participate in the festival in its 14 years of existence
