Giordano Productions presents Brazilian Duo with vocalist Paula Santoro & pianist Jasnam Daya Singh and special guest Brian L. Davis (percussionist from Pink Martini)
Santoro hails originally from the interior state of Minas Gerais, birthplace of Clube da Esquina, a lush strain of late 60s post-bossa nova music spearheaded by Milton Nascimento and Márcio Borges. Santoros lush, warm vocals and gentle rhythms, often accompanied by piano, reflect that influence, as well as her deep background in jazz, classical music, bossa nova and rock. Santoro cites Joni Mitchell as her ideal artist, though Elis Regina, Ella Fitzgerald, Miles Davis, Gal Costa and Edith Piaf are also part of her musical pantheon. - Excerpt from Paul de Barros's article in the Seattle Times.
