During the 12th Brazilian Film Festival of NY, the centenary of Bossa Nova composer Vinicius de Moraes, will be celebrated with a concert at SummerStage in Central Park. Join Toquinho, Vinicius’ friend and partner, as he pays homage to the life and work of the great poet.

Antônio Pecci Filho, better known as Toquinho, is a Brazilian singer, guitarist and composer. Learning guitar at a young age, Toquinho's professional career took off in the 1960s at shows at the famous Paramount Theater in São Paulo. His first big hit was composed in 1970 with Jorge Ben Jor, "Que Maravilha" (What a Wonder), and that same year he was invited by Vinicius de Moraes, co-writer of the worldwide hit song "Garota de Ipanema" (The Girl from Ipanema), to participate in a series of shows in Buenos Aires, forming a solid partnership that would continue for 11 years and produce 120 songs, 25 records and over a thousand shows. After the death of Vinicius de Moraes in 1980, Toquinho went on to pursue a solo career, often performing with other talented musicians like Paulinho da Viola, João Bosco, MPB4, Paulinho Nogueira and Chico Buarque. Toquinho continues to record albums and play his music around the world. He is still very acclaimed in Brazil and Italy.”

Born in New York City in 1990, Gaspar Muniz moved to Rio de Janeiro at an early age. His parents, the multi-media artist Maria Mattos and the photographer Vik Muniz, fostered an intensely artistic home environment exposing Gaspar to friendships not only to artists but also to musicians such as Bebel Gilberto, Marisa Monte and Seu Jorge. These icons of Brazilian music have always encouraged him to become a musician due to his natural but still unexplored talent and his endless curiosity about the subject. Since 10 years old and throughout his teens, the young and outgoing Gaspar solidified his love and addiction to music and started to DJ at events and house parties. At the age of 19, Gaspar decided to move back to New York to study advertising and continue his Career as a “digital musician.” Never attached to a specific genre, DJ Gaspar Muniz uses his cultural diversity and knowledge in his sets by mixing a variety of music styles from different places and eras. Now at 23 years old, Gaspar Muniz is gradually becoming a household name in the underground music scene in New York City.

<![CDATA[SummerStage in Association with Blue Note Jazz Festival Presents: Jon Batiste and Stay Human / Hypnotic Brass Ensemble]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2014/06/29/summerstage-blue-note-jazz-festival-presents-jon-batiste-and-stay-human http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2014/06/29/summerstage-blue-note-jazz-festival-presents-jon-batiste-and-stay-human Date: June 29, 2014

Jon Batiste was born in New Orleans into a family whose deep musical heritage is part of the inspiration for the HBO series Treme, in which he has appeared. Over the last decade he has forged his own artistic path by indelibly fusing himself within the fabric of New York City culture. After attending the prestigious New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (NOCCA) Batiste moved to New York and graduated from the Juilliard School earning a master’s degree in jazz and classical piano. He has collaborated with the likes of Prince, Cassandra Wilson, Lauryn Hill, Wynton Marsalis, Jimmy Buffet, Eve, Lenny Kravitz, ?uestlove, and Asher Roth.

He has also recorded extensively, most recently putting out the EP MY NY with Stay Human in 2011, a set that was recorded live in the Manhattan subway system. Social Music (Razor & Tie), is the new album by Batiste and his irrepressible musical collective, Stay Human. Both the title of the album and the name of the band are telling. “For me, what we’re doing is a calling, bringing people to an understanding that loving one another is how we are called to be,” he says. Now a quartet (with Batiste on piano, vocals and melodica, which he has renamed the harmonaboard; Eddie Barbash on alto saxophone; Ibanda Ruhumbika on tuba; and Joe Saylor on drums), Stay Human has evolved over the past eight years, running the spectrum from a jazz trio to a quintet to a big band with horns.

Hypnotic Brass Ensemble is a family of 8 blood brothers, sons of jazz trumpeter/composer Phil Cohran (Sun Ra, co-founder of AACM, mentor to EARTH WIND & FIRE), who were raised on the south-side of Chicago under the rigorous training methods their musically talented parents. From an early age it was clear the brothers of Hypnotic were born for the stage, they grew at the feet of music giants such as Louis Satterfield, Sun Ra, & Pete Cosey while at the same time performing as children along with father at local showcases. By 1999, a few of the older members returned from music scholarships at college to find their younger brothers playing on the streets of Chicago to rave success. They subsequently formed the Hypnotic Brass Ensemble and after finding a drummer, began to collectively write original tunes in order to create a record with their very own sound "The Flipside". Initially their only aim was to bring horns and live instrumentation back to mainstream music, but after taking to the streets of United States' major cities HBE enjoyed the independent success of over 65,000 units sold direct to fans and also attracted the attention of Kanye West mentor NO ID. In 2003, Hypnotic cut the horns for his current production "Metal Lungees" that featured on Wu-Tang MC Ghostface Killah's "Pretty Toney" album for Def Jam Island. At the same time HBE had begun to record & self-produce their sophomore effort "Jupiter", and when a Def Jam Records production deal went sour the band moved to NYC to promote and sale their latest project solo.
