“The Anniversary, the Concert”, is a production “directed to the general public, which will cover the whole repertoire”, as in the album, “with a broad lineup of ten musicians, including bass and drums”, and first time together, on stage, singers Ana Vieira and Selma Uamusse, who have regularly recorded with me, “said Rodrigo Leão.

In addition to Ana Vieira and Selma Uamusse, these shows also feature singer Ângela Silva, who recorded with Rodrigo Leão the album “Ave Mundi Luminar” (1993), with which the composer and musician began a solo career.

As for the band, will be composed by Rodrigo Leão (keyboards and piano), João Eleutério (keyboard, bass, melodica and others), Marco Alves (trombone and metalophone), Bruno Silva (viola de Arco), Carlos Gomes Tupikova (keyboard and violin) and Celina da Piedade (accordion).

“I feel like 25 years ago, trying to look for melodies, harmonies, sometimes with great suffering, because inspiration does not always appear,” said the composer, when announcing the shows, also referring to the “important work” of the team. and the musicians with whom he works – the musicians he feels closest to – and his friends who “are very important to the final work.”

“I work in an intuitive way, sometimes melodies that come to me, I record them on my cell phone before I work them, just because they came to me at that moment,” he said.

Rodrigo Leão is preparing a new album, which is due to come out later this year, but given the busy schedule of concerts and recordings, it will only be released in 2019.

About this next work, Rodrigo Leão just added that there are certain themes for which he imagines “some voices without lyrics, one more thing of environment”, perhaps for “a choir of 50 voices of children”.
