Brazilians living in Europe, Morgana Moreno (flute, composition) and Marcelo Rosario (guitar, composition) present through their compositions the product of mixing images, colors, sounds and sensations experienced in two such different continents. European Jazz, Classical Music and World Music, as well as different landscapes and cultures of traveled are noticeable and natural influences. Results are defined in words through the titles of the songs, such as “Loreley”, “O caminho”, “Crepusculum”, “Bon Voyage”. Merging to the Brazilianness of both musicians – who have Choro Music as their main musical root, Miscellaneous has a world full of possibilities that easily dialogues with many musical genres and that does not need labels to exist. The eponymous album was recorded in March 2015 in Cologne, Germany and it’s about to be released.
