Itiberê Zwarg e Grupo

Itiberê Zwarg e Grupo was founded in 1999 by its leader - composer, arranger and multi-instrumentalist Itiberê Zwarg. The orchestra was created from workshops given by Itiberê in Proarte, Rio de Janeiro, and always has been based on the principles of the concept of universal music, created by Hermeto Pascoal.
Itiberê has been bassist of Hermeto's group since 1977.

In 2001 the group released their first CD , "Pedra de Espia", voted one of the 10 best albums of the year by the newspaper "O Globo", with shows in Rio de Janeiro, Petrópolis, Nova Friburgo and São Paulo. From there the group performed in the main theaters and cultural centers of Brazil. In 2003 the group participated as special guests on the recording of the CD "Mundo Verde Esperança" with Hermeto Pascoal and Group.

In 2004, They toured through southern Brazil (Curitiba, Florianópolis and Porto Alegre) and performed a show at Sala São Paulo, already featuring the repertoire of their upcoming CD, "Calendario do Som". In 2004 Itiberê is invited to compose and record with the group on the soundtrack of the movie "TO 55, Estrada das Vidas". In 2005 Itiberê is awarded a grant in the latest edition of the "VITAE COMPOSER", to compose for the group.

In 2006 he releases the CD "Calendario do Som" and the CD release tour is sponsored by Natura, with shows in Salvador, Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte, Maringa, Curitiba, Florianópolis, Porto Alegre, Montevideo (Uruguay) and Buenos Aires ( Argentina).
In 2007 the group returns to Argentina to teach a series of workshops led by Itiberê on the concepts of Universal Music at the "Universidad Nacional del Litoral" (Santa Fe / AR), and to perform a concert in Buenos Aires in La Trastienda space.

In 2008 the band performs in several cities in Brazil with the Project "New Orchestras", Centro Cultural Banco do Brazil, and writes two tracks on the CD "Igual a mi Corazón" with the Argentine singer Liliana Herrero.
In 2009 the group is selected for the "Project Pixinguinha / Funarte", where they received a grant for the recording of their third CD, "Contrastes", and to perform shows in Macaé, Rio de Janeiro and Petropolis (Teatro de Caixa).The group also performes in "Shows Cariri", Ceará, performing in cities of Crato, Nova Olinda and Pontengi.
In 2010, the Group continues to create a music rich in harmonic, rhythmic and melodic elements. The group is now composed of eight members, all multiinstumentistas. Also in 2010, the group appears on the TV program "Instrumental SESC Brazil." In 2011, the group records the music for "Palco Movel" for TV Brazil, and performs two shows at SESC Pompeia, while also participating in the I Festiarte in Brasilia.
In 2012, the group receives sponsorship from the Department of Culture of Rio de Janeiro to record the CD "Identity," released by Delira Music with release show at Teatro Rival, Rio de Janeiro.
In July of 2013 the group travels Vannes, France where they are presented to an admiring public at the Jazz at Vannes Festival collaborating with Hermeto Pascoal's group as well as playing their own music.

The show:

Universal themes,melodic interaction, creativity in arrangements, varied textures and dynamics, plenty of room for improvisations that are truly created in the spur of the moment are the fundamental characteristics of this show.
The formation of Itiberê Zwarg e Group has fewer members than the orchestra that gave rise to it in 1999 (today there are eight members), but the potential is greater, since everyone plays more than two instruments, often moving on stage. The repertoire, which is formed by the compositions of Itibere, is presented in chamber groups and with the whole group.
The show lasts approximately 1 hour and a half and leaves in the air a spirit of informality that makes room for interaction with the public.
