Brazilian saxophonist Edgar Duvivier accompanied by Argentine guitarist Dami Andrés offers on his next European tour “Influence of Jazz” a representative sample of the best Brazilian and Latin American music.

We cannot talk about music, whether classical or popular, without thinking about the immense influence of jazz on society and the other musical styles that resulted from it. Jazz emerged in the early 20th century, when the lament songs of slaves working in the cotton fields met the sounds of European instruments. From this mixture will be born a series of new rhythms and musical evolutions all over the world.

From jazz came Blues, Rock, Rhythm and Blues, Swing, Rap and much more.

In the Brazil of Tom Jobim, Baden Powell and Carlos Lyra, the marriage of jazz and samba gives rise to bossa-nova and samba-jazz. On the banks of the Rio de la Plata, it was also jazz that allowed Piazzolla to modernize Argentine tango and create a new one.
Edgar Duvivier and Dami Andrés will testify to this during their tour: there is no world-renowned music that is not influenced by jazz. Thus, you will hear Tango, Swing, Samba, Bossa-nova, Afro-Samba and Bolero. Tom Jobim, Baden Powell, Carlos Lyra, Gilberto Gil, Pixinguinha, Jacob do Bandolin, Consuelo Velasquez or Piazzolla but in all of this you will hear Jazz. And as Louis Armstrong whispered to us, beyond the music you will hear life.
