Cantaloupe Café, at Mercados de Olhão, is pleased to announce that it will present on the 10th of April, Sunday at 18:00 a show with:
Cláudio Alves Guitar &Voice
João Ferreira Piano
Hugo Santos Double Bass
Maximiliano Llanos Drums
The group was formed in 2014 when Cláudio Alves was invited to join the project already started by João Ferreira, Hugo Santos and Maximiliano Llanos. Since then, the main objective of the Nebuchadnezzar Group is to create original music without stylistic barriers, having improvisation as a common and constant element in their compositions and live performances. All the musicians that make up the band have completed their degree in jazz at Portuguese higher education institutions and the different forms and characteristics of the genre are used as the foundations of their works, while the inspiration for writing and arranging them comes from the most varied sources, such as traditional Portuguese music (as in the case of the work GPEGR present in the first album ”Nebuchadnezzar”, inspired by the melodies and harmonies of traditional fado in fusion with rhythmic elements of more contemporary music), Jewish music (Haftling present in the second album “Travellers” ), cinema (Vincent Vega, theme of the second album, inspired by a character from the film Pulp Fiction by Quentin Tarantino), traditional music from the Balkans (Vehni Vehni Fiolica, which will appear on the third album “Cântico”), literature (Wolf made of wind, will appear on the third album, inspired by the novel O Luto by Elias Grou by João Tordo), etc.
Throughout 2019, they participated in a tour of concert halls across the Iberian peninsula, promoting the album Travelers, which culminated in a concert in the auditorium of the Camões lyceum in Lisbon broadcast live on Antena 2 radio.
Currently the group prepares the tour to present the new album “Cântico” recorded in February 2020.
“What motivates us is wanting to reach people with our art and participate in the development of culture.”
“Our music is a lot. There is freedom as a group. We are willing to explore the most diverse timbres and textures”
The concert by Nebuchadnezzar Group is composed of the repertoire that we can find edited in the band’s two albums, as well as some more recent compositions that will be released on the 3rd album in 2021. The instrumentation used by the group enhances a wide variety of stylistic approaches within the of jazz and improvised music, throughout the concert we find different starting points from other places such as Rock, Drum n Bass or even ethnic music that, through individual interpretation and collective improvisation, explore creativity. There is always a common ground between the band and the audience.
