New album of Mike del Ferro: 'Impressions of Brazil'


During the North Sea Jazz Festival 2013, Mike del Ferro presented already his new work: ‘Impressions of Brazil', with the Brazilian star Ceumar. This repertoire is now released on CD!

'Impressions of Brazil' is the second album in the series ‘Songs by wandering the globe’, following the album ‘The Journey’ from 2012. Mike del Ferro is a globe-trotter and as a son of opera-singer Leonard del Ferro, a music lover as well. He has the privilege to successfully combine those two passions. This results in Del Ferro's performances in already over a hundred countries all around the world and having this album series 'Songs by wandering the globe'.

This album is inspired by Del Ferro’s journeys to Brazil. In 2005 he met vocalist/guitarist Ceumar in Sao Paulo. Ceumar, pronounced: 'Say-ooh-mar' is a Brazilian famous singer. She is very popular in her native country and she is now considered to be one of the jewels in MPB (Musica Popular Brasileira). Ceumar has worked with the Mike del Ferro trio before, which resulted in her cd 'Live in Amsterdam'. In the review of this album Jazztimes wrote: "If you are not familiar with Ceumar music, you are up for a treat. Ceumar beautiful voice and poetic singing style will surely captures you. If you are already a fan, like me, you will love the jazzy arrangements of some of your favorites Ceumar songs."

The collaboration is blessed with the approval of the North Sea Jazz festival: “The result of this collaboration is an exciting and mostly melodic improvisation-jazz with traditional Latin-American samba influences.”
