The Brazilian instrumental group “Macaxeira Jazz” shows that South American music can blend well with world music. The musicians are from Natal – Brazil and have performed together in this formation since 2006 and now account for several national and international tours. The ensemble musical signature is the union of international popular rhythms – such as jazz, blues and rock – with Brazilian national rhythms such as choro, samba and baião. Diogo Guanabara (bandolin), Henrique Pacheco (bass), Raphael Bender (drums), Marco Antonio da Costa (accoustic guitar, cavaquinho, piano) and Ticiano D’Amore (eletric guitar) have created along the last two decades an extensive amount of original compositions, in addition to this, they show outstanding creativity, including daring interpretations of the so called “classics” of Pop music. Bands like “The Beatles”, and artists like “Michael Jackson” and “Astor Piazzolla” gain unusual versions, in typical Brazilian rhythms, that please the most demanding audiences in Brazil and abroad.
