Huw Warren is one of Wales’ leading jazz musicians with a long and internationally acclaimed career of cross genre collaborations and recordings on major european labels such as ECM and CAM jazz. From 2012-2016 he was artist in residence at Brecon Jazz Festival and curated the World Wide Wales series of international collaborations as well as premiering new commissions such as the Dylan Thomas project “Do Not go Gentle” and coordinating projects with young musicians from RWCMD and NYJW.  His ongoing ‘love affair’ with Brazilian music has included the 2009 album Hermeto+, a trio record putting his own compositions alongside new arrangements of music by the great Hermeto Pascoal,, several albums with Italian singer Maria Pia de Vito and another trio record Everything in Between from 2018. During this time he has performed and recorded with Brazilian luminaries such as Jovino Santos Neto, Chico Buarque, Adriano Adewale, Carlos Malta and Roberto Taufic.

This special and unique collaboration for Brecon Jazz is with Brazilian vocalist and percussionist Seu Gaio. To describe Seu Gaio in one word, you must use the word versatile. “Seu Gaio is one of those great musicians who dives into the big pot of Brazilian Popular Music with the purpose of bringing out new interpretations and a vast musical knowledge for his song writing” (Paulo Sa). This creative and innovative musician from Brazil, who carries West African heritage, was born and raised in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro. He sings, writes songs, and plays a variety of Brazilian and West African percussion and stringed musical instruments.

The quartet is completed by Ursula Harrison and George Povey, two of the rising young stars of the vibrant Cardiff jazz scene.  Expect a mix of Warren originals, Hermeto tunes and some great Brazilian Choro and Samba for listening and dancing!  This is an unique opportunity to enjoy an authentic Brazilian flavoured musical experince provided by three incredible musicians!
