Biography

Biography

This event is rooted into the Frenchmen Street music scene where New Orleans native Blake Amos and Saudade played every Friday afternoon. Taking the success of the street beats and local sounds, he subsequently moved to New York and expand the musical listenership. I started the Hot Brazil Show Series with the mission to create an event that brings the cultures and musical forms of New Orleans and Brazil together to foster the bridge between the cultures and enchance the music experience for the global audience.

Mission
. Create and produce a self sustaining event that can act as a vehicle to foster cultural and music exchanges between New Orleans and Brazil.
. Create an event that will allow the creative growth and foster the development of local musicians within the Brazilian musical genre
. Provide a world class event and party for New Orleans to enjoy and celebrate on a regular basis for renewal and reconnection.

History

The first show was at Cafe Brasil on July 9 2005 and was a great success. Our September 10th Brasil Independence event was cancelled due to Katrina. However, while evacuated in New York City , I was able to host a Hot Brasil event in the �Big Apple� at Taj Lounge with New Orleans band Blake Amos & Saudade, and "Samba man" Cutis Pierre, Director of New Orleans only Escola de Samba: Casa Samba who we flew up to New York for the occasion. Post Katrina, we were very happy to be part of the Blue Nile's reopening on Mardi Gras weekend with a highly successful show on February 26 2006: Axe Carnival New Orleans.

I am happy to be back home and to continue the mission of this event and create events tahat you have to experience.
