Erudite Brazilian Music: Triat’uan Tonight in Santo Antônio

Saturday, August 18, 2018

The guys making up Triat’uan are totally world-class…they’ll be playing the music of Hermeto Pascoal, Airto Moreira, Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis…

Here in Brazil this kind of music is tagged as “instrumental”, a lackluster term implying of course that there are no vocals. What it really means though is something akin to Brazilian jazz, although not sounding like nor being what the term “Brazilian jazz” usually conjures.

In any case, the music draws from the profound well of Brazilian regional music (or deeply Brazilian takes on great Americans) and is highly improvisational.

Percussion here is by the celestial-class Gabi Guedes, who calls down the gods at the Gantois terreiro de candomblé.

A Boca (The Mouth) is a small place in Santo Antônio além do Carmo, close to the Cruz do Pascoal. Cover is 20 reais. Should be getting to getting going at around 8 p.m. or so…
