Meet Fado em Si Bemol:

Fado em Si Bemol formed in 2003. It started out as a project between good friends Paulo Gonçalves, Miguel Silva and Pedro Matos to explore the nontraditional sounds of the music throughout the world using the Portuguese guitar. We played a single show using sounds of Fado and Stevie Wonder. To our surprise, there was a full house and people loved the sounds. We continue our journey fusing different sounds of the world together with an end result of magical harmony.

Road story: Your best or worst experience:

We remember a particular show some years ago, when Pedro was walking onto the stage and fell down right in front of the audience. Needless to say, the entire group started laughing and so did the audience. Pedro was fine besides a bruised ego and we still laugh about it to this day.

Favorite venue:

We have to say that there are two venues. Dizzy's and Blue Note. Even though we have never played at either, the both stand out as our dream venues to play.

Your favorite recording in your discography and why?

We all agree, QB is not only our favorite, but by far our most passionate recording. We put so much of ourselves into this album. The rhythms and harmony united together bring an amazing intensity of feelings and emotions. This album is very different from our first two. We challenge everyone to judge for themselves.

How would you describe the state of jazz today?

Jazz is an ever-evolving sound, but the music is a universal language that join us all together with beautiful blends and harmony from all over the world. Great jazz music comes in many flavors, but it is always heard in the heart and soul of its audience.

What is in the near future?

Our New York tour in January 2013. We are extremely excited to come to the United States. We are very excited to tour the United States. For us it seems a dream come true. We look forward to sharing our sound and giving the people a little piece of Portugal. In addition, there is such vast talent in the United States; it makes us excited to work with them. We are hoping to develop future musical relationships that will add to Fado em Si Bemolâ's next steps.
