Born in Sao Paulo, Juliana da Silva is well known for her outstanding performances. She interprets Brazilian music and jazz with her magical voice, a mixture of expression, charm, humor and passion for the music she sings. She has become a remarkable representative of the ‘musica popular brasileira’ (MPB).
A wider audience became aware of her work due to the Jobim Project, playing in Jazz Festivals in Germany, Poland, Russia, Holland and Czech Republic. Also in Asia she has been performing in Bangkok, Hyderabad, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore, accompanied by great local musicians.
Over the past few years she has performed with diverse projects showing her diversity: working with a Bossa Nova Trio singing original compositions, with jazz musicians in the Brazilian jazz scene or writing lyrics for brand new tunes. Meanwhile she is one of the main artists performing regularly at Frankfurt Jazzkeller, where she organizes a summer special event for the past 10 years.
Throughout her concerts she brings different repertoire and band formations, always with the same aim: the perfect mixture between Brazilian music and jazz.
Sheikh Hady Basmeih (aka Hady Afro) was born into a musical family. His father, Mansur, a musician popular with boogie woogie style of piano playing has been his source of Inspiration ever since he was young.
Hady took his first musical steps at the age of 8, learning the piano from his father; it wasn’t until he was 17 that Hady’s father taught him to play classical guitar, theory and how to read music. It was during this time that Hady discovered Classical music, thus beginning a love affair with classical guitar. Over the next few years he honed his skills as a guitarist (playing classical and electric guitar), developing a unique style that reflects an amalgamation of his ever expanding musical tastes.
In 2004, he furthered his studies and obtained a Diploma in 2008, graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree majoring in Classical Guitar and Music Arrangement in 2012 at the National
Academy of Arts Culture and Heritage (ASWARA).
Hady was interviewed by MIRROR Magazine as a role model for Malaysian Youth on Unity Association in 2011, by ‘Buletin Beringin’ Magazine for winning the 1st runner up in the 1st Malaysian International Guitar Festival and Competition 2007.
His inspiration comes from the great masters such as Andres Segovia, John Williams, Julian Bream and Luis Salinas.
