Brief description „Mar Afora“ – obwohl „das Meer so weit draußen“ zwischen den beiden liegt, ist die Jazz-Sängerin Maria João mit dem brasilianischen Gitarristen Guinga musikalisch tief verbunden. Die Portugiesin war schon immer der brasilianischen Musik zugetan und der Gitarrist hat eine Vorliebe für Melancholie, die an den Fado erinnert. Es ist vor allem aber die kongenial swingende Rhythmik, welche die beiden zu einem faszinierenden Duo formt. Poetisch und virtuos präsentieren die beiden in fast kammermusikalischer Manier vierzehn Kompositionen Guingas, die eine moderne Seite der brasilianischen Musik zeigen: Traditionelle Elemente werden mit Guingas anspruchsvoller Harmonik zu einer spannenden neuen Musiksprache transformiert.

“Mar Afora” … although the "sea so far away" lies between them, the jazz singer Maria João is deeply connected at a musical level to the guitarist Guinga. The Portuguese vocalist has always been attracted to Brazilian music, and the guitarist has a preference for melancholic tunes that remind one of the Portuguese fado. But what really makes them into a fascinating duo, is the congenially swinging rhythms. These two artists present Guinga’s fourteen compositions poetically and with virtusosic skill in almost chamber music-like manner. His work reveals a modern side of Brazilian music: traditional elements pass through Guinga’s sophisticated harmonies and are transformed into an exciting new musical language.
