*Mente Clara was born in Texas out of a love for the music of Hermeto Pascoal and other Brazilian masters. "Their judiciously reverberant sound and over the top arrangements illuminate Mente Clara's carefully considered contrasts, bringing welcome vibrancy and presence to the performances." (Raul da Gama, World Music Report.) They combine soaring melody, sophisticated jazz harmony, and the danceable rhythms of Northeastern Brazil into a sound that is all their own. Straddling the line between jazz, world music, and fusion, the band has toured from coast to coast, developing a reputation for exciting live shows along the way. Their second album, Forrozêra, was released on June 2, 2015, and has been praised for its “dynamic rhythmic attack.” (Dave Sumner, Bird Is The Worm)http://www.menteclaramusic.com/

*Paula Maya is a Brazilian singer, songwriter and keyboardist. Her songs are strongly influenced by Brazilian music, jazz and world-pop. Paula is from Rio de Janeiro, the birthplace of bossa nova. Rio is also where choro, a Brazilian be-bop-like music, was born a century before bossa nova. Both music styles, as well as Brazilian dance music like samba and baião, are heard in Paula's songs. In the U.S., Paula is a part of an eclectic community of musicians from different parts of the world. Different genres such as jazz, country, reggae and soukous inspire fresh music blends. http://yellowhouserecords.com/index.html

*Frederico7 plays global fusion, tropicália, brazilian funk and soul. https://www.facebook.com/frederico7sounds/?fref=ts and http://www.frederico7.com/

*Kenny Dorham's Backyard was named after a legendary jazz trumpeter who once lived in the East Austin neighbourhood. The 2-acre space is a unique and creative community space managed by Diverse Arts. http://diversearts.org/
