Making Tracks Season 4 kicks off with a tour by this exciting Brazilian duo celebrating the vibrant culture of a country about to enter a period of unparalleled prominence as host to the football World Cup and Olympics.
Brazilian piano star Benjamim Taubkin has been making waves with his sensual mix of lush traditional arrangements laced with cutting edge technique and contemporary harmony. For this tour he has teamed up with exhilarating and innovative percussionist Adriano Adewale, who has shared the stage with Seu Jorge, Oliver Mtukudzi and Jools Holland, among others. Their work together evolves around the play of push and pull between the two instruments which are often considered the backbone of bossa nova. Experimental and improvised yet focused on building soundscapes, harmonies and melodies, this is music that effortlessly transforms itself from solid to liquid and from earth to ether.
