Saturday 6 October 8pm
Wangaratta Uniting Church Hall
Featuring Doug de Vries and Diana Clark
Panorama Brasil draws on the diverse musical landscape of Brazil: samba, bossa, folkloric music and regional styles mixed with jazz and more. The band has performed at major festivals and venues and produced many albums with varied line-ups of musicians.
Musical director of Panorama Brasil is drummer/composer, Alastair Kerr, a long-time student of Brazilian music and recognised as one of Australia’s leading exponents of Brazilian percussion and jazz drumming. In addition to a busy performance schedule (with Australia’s best jazz musicians) Alastair has given masterclasses and workshops across Australia.
Adrian Jackson considers Doug de Vries ‘perhaps the most consistently rewarding guitarists in Australian jazz today’. His playing offers musicality and emotion with originality and finesse in equal measure. Doug is a significant composer for the guitar, excelling in many musical genres. As Australia’s leading exponent of Brazilian guitar repertoire, Doug is particularly noted for his sophisticated accompaniments, deep knowledge, and daring improvisations whether in solo or group settings.
Melbourne singer-songwriter Diana Clark established her interpretive credentials by way of two award-winning recordings with collaborator/husband Doug de Vries. She has a background in A cappelle and choral music.
De Vries and Clark have established a loyal fan base in Australia and travel to Brazil regularly for collaboration and inspiration for their compositions. Together they have been intoxicating audiences throughout Australia, the Pacific, Brazil and beyond.
The ensemble also includes Asha Henfry (flute), Matt Boden (piano), and Jorge Albuquerque (bass).
