Instrumental music from Brazil
February 22, 2017 2:12 AM   Subscribe

Programa Instrumental SESC Brasil is an on-going series of videos (each ca. 50-55 minutes long) on YouTube of live performances of Brazilian instrumental music, much of it more-or-less jazz-tinged. See for example: veteran percussionist Wilson das Neves leading a 14-piece band; or accordionist Renato Borghetti (with Arthur Bonilla on guitar), a virtuoso exponent of gaucho music; or Drummer Vera Figueiredo & her trio, joined part-way through their set by the trombonist Bocato; or guitarist Renata Montanari & her quartet; or São Paulo pianist Louise Woolley & 12-piece band; or the funk outfit Black Mantra… but that merely scratches the surface: there are dozens of other fine performances to be found.

SESC, by the way, is, ‘a Brazilian non-profit private institution [which] is Brazil’s leading institution in arts financing.’

Super duper mega tangential, but, I'd previously heard of SESC in relation to one of my favorite buildings, the SESC Pompéia by the incomparable Lina Bo Bardi.
