Hello I am Pedro Madaleno, I am a composer guitarist of Jazz/worldmusic well known in Portugal, with 5 CDs edited, and I am looking for a good Music Agency in Europe to book my concerts. At this moment I am in the stage of presenting the 2nd CD of my sextet, which recorded a CD in 2015, which, among other prizes, was 2 months in the top mº1 of recommended CDs and CDs most heard, one of the best jazz sites of the world, allaboutjazz.com. We have already played at almost all the Jazz festivals in Portugal,some in Spain, and we would be very happy to start playing in Festivals in the rest of Europe. I leave here some songs from the 2015 CD, '' That smile on your face '' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8KescWvEksE
In my group I count on great musiciansL João Barradas - acordeão (an excellent new European talent that is playing with Mike Stern, Greg Osby), Yuri Daniel-bass, (bass player of Jan Garbarek), Bruno Pedroso -bateria (drummer of Abé Rabade trio), João David Almeida- voice and great singer Diogo Vida-piano Pedro Madaleno-guitar. About the group, I can describe that it presents a type of orchestral music that crosses all borders, in a perfect blend of Portuguese soul, fado, tango, with jazz, worldmusic, classical and film, with themes that are super direct with very strong melodies and that they play to all people, it is not music for a restricted audience of jazz, but to play in all worldmusic festivals and alternative music. The project is played by 6 excellent musicians, in a super melodious orchestral song full of elaborate arrangements and nuances. In addition to having formed a large part of the generation of young jazz musicians in Portugal, for now I will open the first Creative WorldMusic school in Portugal, in Lisbon, and also one of the first in Europe.
