Maria Joao Jazz Singer
Maria João Jazz Singer

A unique opportunity is available to work with the colourful, Maria João in Tavira on 25 and 26 May 2013.  “She is the best contemporary Portuguese jazz singer” so says Tela Leão “and will be coming to help people explore jazz improvisation”.   “16 people have already signed up and there are only 4 places left” .

Maria will be sharing her extensive knowledge and the tactics she uses to improvise.  For the 6 hour workshop spread over two days (Sat /Sun) the cost is 50 Euros.  Maria speaks English.  As its improvisation the language used is less important.  It is the sounds that will pull the workshop together.

The improvisation workshop is part of a wider artistic programme, happening between May to September.  The programme consists of three productions, one featuring a well know artist (Maria João).  The next event will be in July and it will be a classical guitar production using the music and life of Brazilian composer and musician,Villa Lobos.   The last production in September, will be a visual and interactive dance spectacular using 3D mapping technology.

The Maria João workshop is taking place in partnership with CENAS
