Alma Quintet

Featuring: Fernando Brandão (flutes)
Evan Harlan (accordion)
Claudio Ragazzi (guitar)
Fernando Huergo (bass)
Keita Ogawa (drums and percussion)

From 1992 to 1998, Brasileirinho was an original group with a unique instrumentation and conception of tunes and arrangements. The quintet performed throughout the New England area with many sold out concerts at local venues that included Regattabar, Ryles and music festivals.

The band is back with a new name, a slightly different formation and three of its original members.

Modern Traditions from South America

With a unique instrumentation and repertoire, the quintet explores contemporary Brazilian and Argentinean music, mixing original compositions and edgy arrangements of tunes written by Egberto Gismonti, Hermeto Pascoal, Astor Piazzolla, Pixinguinha, Guinga, Jacob do Bandolim and many more.
