Lea Freire

LEA FREIRE's "Cartas Brasileiras" (Brazilian Letters - 2007) is receiving the enthusiastic applause of either public and critic, in many languages. Its music is the confluence of the three main musical forces that coexist in Brazil today : African, European and Native Indian. "Vento em Madeira", the first track of this album, is a beautifull combination of these influences. With an invited orquestra adding to 62 (sixty two) musicians, it is a colossal production of her label Maritaca, specialized in the best Brazilian Instrumental Music.

Her first CD, “Ninhal” (meaning the collective of birds nests), is still very well received by public and critic and some of the songs, specially 'Vatapa' have been recorded already in Japan, German, Italy, USA and by various artists in Brazil.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
