Brassileiro Brass Music from Northeastern Brazil



Brassil are remarkable musicians who have succeeded in producing something quite new in more ways than one within the familiar formation of the classicla brass quintet. They come from the northeastern Brazilian state of Paraíba, a region that remains a reservoir of good music and musicians thanks to the enduring traditions of brass bands. It is interesting that most of them had their early training in this tradition and that they play popular music too. This is a quality they share with many players in Brazil; it makes them all-rounders and gives them the essential flexibility to feel at ease in a style that requires the swing of popular forms and the sensitivity of classically trained musicians.
