Dulce Pontes - DULCE PONTES - DANIEL CASARES - ADAM BEN EZRA

A new concept that joins 3 great worldwide musicians well-known for their mastery on their instruments: voice, guitar and double bass. Songs from their repertoire re-interpreted with new flavors and benefitting from their magic energy on stage. DULCE PONTES (Voice & Piano) Dulce Pontes started her career as a mainstream pop artist, but over the years she has evolved to become a world music singer. She blends traditional fado with contemporary styles and searches out new forms of musical expression. She introduced musical traditions of the Iberian Peninsula in her work, rediscovered many long forgotten popular tunes and found use for obsolete musical instruments. Her work is inspired and influenced not only by Iberian musical tradition, but also Arabic, African, Brazilian and Bulgarian sounds. She sings mostly in her native Portuguese. Dulce Pontes has collaborated with Cesária Évora, Caetano Veloso, Marisa Monte, Daniela Mercury, Carlos Núñez, the Chieftains, Kepa Junkera, Eleftheria Arvanitaki, George Dalaras, Andrea Bocelli, Joan Manuel Serrat, Wayne Shorter, Trilok Gurtu, Christopher Tin for his albums Calling All Dawns (Grammy awarded) and The Drop That Contained the Sea among others. Her song "Canção do Mar" appeared on the soundtrack of Hollywood film Primal Fear. And on the NBC police drama Southland. Her album Focus (2003) is the fruit of a collaboration with Italian composer Ennio Morricone with whom she still tours and performs live as special guest. She sang in prestigious concert halls like Carnegie Hall in New York and the Royal Albert Hall in London, among many other places worldwide. DANIEL CASARES (Flamenco Guitar) Daniel Casares , was born with “duende” and this is demonstrated by his guitar, which sounds original, distinct, with a proper personality of its own, reflecting that inner fury, which unleashes powerfully on its strings. The professional career of Daniel Casares is premature. With only 13 years old, he participates in the recording of the collective record, "A la Guitarra de Estepona". At the age of 16, he is awarded for the first time for his talent, becoming the youngest guitarist, to date, to achieve the “Bordón Minero” Prize. In addition, it rises with the national prize of guitar of Jaén and this allows him to record its first Album "Duende Flamenco" that same year. His musical intimacy is intimately linked to the Master Juanito Valderrama whom he accompanied in his last years; This is recorded on the album "Don Juan" recorded live atthe Flamenco Festival of La Unión (Murcia). ADAM BEN EZRA (Double Bass) Double-Bass phenomenon, multi-instrumentalist and online sensation Adam Ben Ezra; a man seemingly on a mission to bring his instrument from its status as a background note to the dominant front-presence it deserves. For the past few years Adam has been pushing his craft in new, exciting directions and carving out a unique spot for himself in today’s international musical landscape, with both his virtuosity and musicianship earning him great success along the way. His work has been shown at industry leading publications, such as the BBC, CBS News, Time Magazine and The British Telegraph to name but a few. Jazz FM has defined his appearance as ”a dazzling virtuosity and breath-taking athletic performance”. The term “multi-instrumentalist” is often overused but in this case it couldn’t be more fitting; Adam began playing the violin at age five and picked up the guitar at age nine.Over the years he has added the Piano, Clarinet, Oud, Side Flute and even BeatBox to his arsenal, largely teaching himself each time. However, it was an introduction to theDouble-Bass at age 16 that truly changed his life, when he instantly fell in love with the instrument’s rich sound. Drawing inspiration from heroes as diverse as Bach, Sting, Bobby McFerrin and Chick Corea, Adam made a clear decision to make his compositions current – no matter the tool used. He has consciously added new colors to his palette, incorporating elements of Jazz, Latin and Mediterranean music into his playing.
