Bianca Gismonti Trio on tour March & July 2020

Bianca Gismonti's superb jazz-oriented piano trio music reveals a vigorous interaction and sensitivity. Her beautiful compositions come along with a rich brazilian rhythmic gesture, lyric harmonies and inspiring melodies.

Bianca’s entire art was naturally born out of the affective bonds she ́s weaved throughout her life. As a due heiress of her father ́s musicality – the great composer, pianist and guitarist Egberto Gismonti - she started, at the ripe age of 15, to accompany him on tour around the world. During her musical college years, she befriended Claudia Castelo Branco, another young pianist, with whom would co-found “Duo Gisbranco” – growing into a successful eleven year career comprising of three albums, one DVD and extensive world-wide touring. Yet, the encounter with drummer/percussionist Julio Falavigna was bound to happen. Based on Bianca’s new compositions, they’ve taken their personalunion over to the musical field, together conceiving and producing “Sonhos de Nascimento” (Dreams of Birth). Furthermore, from 2013 to 2014, they’d consolidate a trio format alongside bassist Antonio Porto, thus realizing a common sonic identification, touring South America (Brasil, Argentina, Uruguay), Europe (England, Austria, Spain and Portugal) as well as Japan (at the prestigious Cotton Club venue). Traveling from explorations towards solutions, thelarve-like sleep of “Dreams of Birth” (“Sonhos de Nascimento”) blossoms unto the butterfly-ish free flight of “First Sky” (“Primeiro céu”), her second album released in 2015. This record had special apeearances by singer Jane Duboc and harmonica player José Staneck. In 2016, the same album was released by Impartment Records (Japan) and Quinton Records (Austria), allowing for a new round of tours over Europe, Africa and Asia, during which her new album which is to be released in 2018 - “Unveiling Seas” was recorded in Budapest, under Hunnia Records. All throughout, besides her own compositions, her fathers’repertoire remained part and parcel of her soul, being somewhat always present during the performances. In this year, celebrating Egberto’s 70th Birthday, Bianca decided to put together a full set-list in his honour, with many of the compositions which became hallmarks of his career. Classics such as “Palhaço”, “Lôro”, “Água e Vinho” and “Maracatu” are in this new show which has been captivating audiences worldwide in 2018 as well as a homonymous CD released by Hunnia Records in 2019.
