Live:19th July Långlöts Kyrka, Öland 7 PM - 9th August Algutsrums Kyrka, Öland 7 PM SWEDISH
The Amazon is one of our greatest wildwoods. Like many other virgin forests its existence is threatened. Very few know its stories. Far less tell these stories to the world. The Brazilian poet Marcia Theophilo are one of these storytellers. According to Marcia, the words of the forest are endless. And from the words comes music.
New Zealand guitarist Julie Bevan and Swedish pianist Harald Erici are both passionate about Brazil and its music. One day the two meet in Rio de Janeiro. On a common tour in New Zealand, two years later, Julie and Harald begin to compose music together. The music is inspired by the virgin forest, the nature and amazing sceneries in New Zealand, or Aotearoa, as the Maori people name their land. Harald and Julie also find inspiration in Marcia Theophilos poems about the Amazon, its spirits and inhabitants. The words and the music become a unity.
This Summer Julie Bevan visits Sweden and the new compositions will be presented for the very first time. Guitar and piano are intergrated with the voices from the nature and forests. It will be a meditative moment with resonances, rhythms and sounds from Brazil, New Zealand and the midland forest of Öland, Sweden. The new compositons are accompanied by Brazilian pieces of Baden Powell, Pixinguinha and Antonios Carlos Jobim.
