Hermeto Pascoal

‘My head is universal, I wasn’t born just to perform classical or jazz. Whoever walks a fixed line is a train’ – Hermeto Pascoal

The legendary Brazilian composer & mulit-instrumentalist returns to the UK for a farewell big band tour.

Known as ‘O Bruxo’ (the sorcerer), on stage he has an almost spiritual connection to the other musicians, as they blend busy percussion, break-neck bossas and sambas and endlessly modulating melodies – creating a scampering, swirling party atmosphere that includes the whole room, players and audience alike. It’s clear why Miles Davis claimed him to be ‘the most impressive musician in the world.’

Self-taught, he honed his ear for unusual tones in his grandfather’s blacksmith workshop, hearing music as a vital force that rings forth organically from everything on earth. He continues to transform everyday objects into extraordinary compositions, whether that’s through squeaky toys, old teapots or his trusty accordion.
