To mark the 20th anniversary since his untimely death, a ten-piece Brazilian band led by Kita Steuer will perform a selection of Tim Maia’s greatest hits at the Jazz Cafe.
Tim Maia is universally recognised as one of the icons of Brazilian music heritage. He contributed to a raft of Brazilian music styles, including funk, bossa nova, disco, romantic ballads, pop, rock, jazz, baião and MPB. Moreover, he is credited with introducing the soul style to the Brazilian music scene. From humble beginnings, Maia would go on to record and release over thirty albums incorporating a plethora of distinct styles and influences on a variety of different internationally recognised labels. He is a true legend of Brazilian music, and his music has been instrumental in promoting Brazilian music around the globe.
Kita will also open the show with a short set from his band Kita Steuer & Samba Soul Transatlantico, and behind the decks will be the one and only Fabricio D.Vyzor.
