NanÁfrica est une composition du pianiste, compositeur, musicologue et pédagogue Ewerton Oliveira, en hommage au grand percussionniste brésilien Naná Vasconcelos. Naná et Ewerton viennent de la même ville : Recife, au Nord-Est du Brésil. Quelques générations séparent ces deux artistes, mais un même regard de la musique les rassemble : créer, dépasser les frontières, croiser les genres musicaux et se réinventer. Les compositions d’Ewerton Oliveira racontent des histoires, proposent des ambiances, rendent hommage, font appel à une mémoire lointaine, des traditions africaines qui sont mélangées au jazz ou à une écriture musicale contemporaine.

NanÁfrica is a composition by pianist, composer, musicologist and pedagogue Ewerton Oliveira, as a tribute to the great Brazilian percussionist Naná Vasconcelos. Naná and Ewerton come from the same city: Recife, in the northeast of Brazil. A few generations separate these two artists, but the same vision of music brings them together: to create, to go beyond borders, to cross musical genres and to re-invent themselves. Ewerton Oliveira’s compositions tell stories, offer atmospheres, pay homage, appeal to distant memories, African traditions that are mixed with jazz or contemporary musical spices.

Christophe Goze-Soul to Soul (2022)


Known for his brilliant ability to blend world music with jazz and downtempo Christophe does not like to label his music and stick to one genre. “My influences have always been very wide and I never liked the idea of being stuck in one style. I’m more like a musical digital nomad who likes to freely experiment the moment as it comes. Depending where my mind has been traveling and what influences me at the time” says Christophe.

Jazz has always been a big part of his life and his guitar playing as definitely been influenced by it. “I’ve always been fascinated by the colors and sound of Jazz and as a guitarist by the technicality of this music”

Christophe Goze-At The End Of The Street

As a producer his sound is miles away from Jazz. He gets his technique & influences from Lounge, electronic music and even pop. The mix of the two is what he calls “Jazzy Lounge”

The “Reminiscence” album was a strong step into that direction . This new album “Soul To Soul” is another attempt, trying to go even a step further and reach to the planet “Smooth Jazz”. From “Jazzy Lounge” to “Smooth Jazz” the order can be very thin and a very interesting journey to travel. “I certainly enjoyed the trip and can’t wait to see where this is going to take me in the future”


SOME FACTS ABOUT CHRISTOPHE
French born & lives in Barcelona. He was signed by Virgin Japan at the age of 23 then moved to London and started to collaborate with the famous Cafe Del mar & Buddha Bar. Christophe also writes for Television & films & got nominated for Best UK Tv avert music . His latest major synch was on “The 355” movie with Jessica Chastain & Peneloppe Cruz.
