About the artist
Almanaque is a powerful musical journey into the depths of Brasilian and African grooves mixed with jazz and improvisation.
The band was formed in 2015 and it has already played several Festivals and clubs around Europe. They regularly play at the Ronnie Scott Club in London where they opened for Ivan Lins, Eumir Deodato and Pee wee Ellis among other artists.
The quartet is led by the guitarist Luca Boscagin who combines the acoustic tone of his nylon strings guitar (typical of the Brasilian tradition) with soundscapes, gritty sounds, delays and harmonisers.
Quentin Collins is one of the leading trumpet players in the Uk, having played in Festivals worldwide with his own quartet and with the bass player/composer Kyle Eastwood.
Matheus Nova and Raphael Delfino are some of the tightest Brazilian rhythm sections around and they provide the beating heart of the groove.
The band will play some original music as well as some tunes by the most influential Brazilian artists such as Milton Nascimento, Chico Buarque and the great Tom Jobim.
Secondary act: DJ Green Papi
With over 20 years of experience, Green Papi’s DJ set has come to prominence with an eclectic selection of mainstream and throwback grooves seasoned with the heady essence of his Latin/Caribbean roots. Get ready to dance to the sound of throwback jazzy-funky party classics, ’80s, ’90s, afrobeat and much more.
