MAJ Brazilian Trio
The MAJ Brazilian Trio has established itself in recent years as one of the leading lights of modern Brazilian music in Barcelona. Its members are the eclectic Mexican-American pianist Mark Aanderud and Jurandir Santana (guitar) and Alan Sousa (percussion), who both hail from Bahia, Brazil. Musicians who have worked with Brazilian artists of the likes of Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa, Rosa Passos, Filô Machado and Toninho Horta. Their music, which is full of power and rhythm, combines the subtlety of bossa nova with the magic of rhythms such as samba and baião, all seasoned with an exquisite touch of modern jazz.
