In 2022, after two years of absence, the European Big Band returns to the Bal Blomet. Trumpeter Rubinho Antunes will conduct the orchestra for an evening around Brazilian music.
Between Sao Paolo and Paris, Rubinho Antunes puts his talent as a trumpeter, arranger and composer at the service of big names in Brazilian music such as Hermeto Pascoal, Gilberto Gil…. Throughout his career, he honors the Big Band formation while playing with the sounds and rhythms of traditional Brazilian music and musical trends that have passed through the ages.
It's a real journey between Bossa-nova, samba, choro or even baião and jazz that will be on the program. A festive and dancing concert between discovery and rediscovery of the music and the catchy rhythms of the country of South America.
After a week of residency at the CMDL, Rubinho Antunes and students from all over Europe (Norway, Belgium, Portugal, Germany and even France), will introduce you to this unique concert.
