Tide will present an intimate concert of traditional Brazilian music at Smith Alternative as a duo with the great percussionist and drummer, Igor Dallegrave (Curitiba, Brazil).
Hailing from a small country town a few hours out of São Paulo, Brazil, Tide is a Melbourne based composer, guitarist and vocalist. He plays traditional Brazilian music: Samba-Jazz, Baião, Chula, Côco, Afoxé; genres originating from African communities in Brazil as well as South American First Peoples. Inspired by the likes of Brazilian contemporary musicians and songwriters Gilberto Gil, Elomar and João Bosco, Tide has developed a distinctive percussive style, melding fingerstyle and articulate strumming techniques to achieve a dynamic, delicate and varied sound. The result is an organic and authentic style of traditional Brazilian music.
