Ready for a Brazilian Break? Listen for an Eliane Elias twofer this Friday.
Eliane Elias Back2Back! Connect Brazil’s weekly digest keeps you informed and up to date with the best of Brazil. What will you discover?
Eliane Elias Back2Back! Why not? Those are welcome words to the ears of Brazilian jazz fans worldwide. Why? Because no other female Brazilian jazz musician so more popular and plays more date and venues than the talented pianist from Sao Paulo.
And we miss her shows. She does too.
Eliane Elias loves to perform: “My whole thing is the piano, the sound of the piano, the response of the instrument, the acoustics,” she says. “When I put my hands on it, I don’t have to think about this chord or that chord being right. I just go for what I feel.”
Let’s celebrate Eliane’s return to our streaming station’s Brazil Back2Back segment. Reacquaint yourself with our original review of her Three Americas album, then tune in online for a pair of fan-favorite songs on Friday’s Brazil Back2Back.
