"Sintonia Fina"

"A beautiful voice in secure interpretations of jazz, bossa nova and samba-rock, in an album full of great
arrangements." [ Nelson Motta ] - Nelson Motta

"Comerce Journal"

"She certainly has one of the most beautiful voices in Brazilian music, with crystal-clear diction and a
sense of division that makes me think of Elis [Regina]. Her singing is smooth, bright, cozy. In three years,
she has also grown as a songwriter, and if this is just her second album, and we know her determination,
it is not hard to predict a successful career.” [Juarez Fonseca] - Juarez Fonseca

The show "Nossas e Bossas" presents to the audiences the result of the meeting of Rodrigo Panassolo and Gisele De Santi, two Brazilian composers and musicians who began their musical partnership more than ten years ago, in a relationship that now reaches across the boundaries of the music universe. The couple's repertoire consists mainly of their own compositions, either in partnership or individually, always in a well tuned language. The show also brings some songs of Brazilian music and Bossa Nova that made part of their musical formation. 

After a tour around 6 european countries in 2014 and a north america tour that passed through 4 states in 2015, the artists released an album of songs written in english in a project called A Cup of Bossas, that mixes Bossa Nova with very smooth electronic atmosphere. The album called The First Sip reached over 100k plays in several streaming platforms.

Gisele De Santi is singer and songwriter from south of Brazil, based in São Paulo. Her last album named CASA won the main award of Prêmio Açorianos as "Album of the year". The title song is a partnership between Gisele and Rodrigo. Her debut album called the attention of important critics like Nelson Motta and Juarez Fonseca and was released in Brazil and Japan. Not in vain Gisele was awarded in the “best interpreter” and “revelation” categories in the 2010’s edition and "best composer" in the 2013's edition of the Açorianos Award. She is also the author, in partnership with Fabricio Gambogi, of the hit that won radios and soundtracks “Do Lado de Cá” (From This Side), performed by the band Chimarruts and had her song “E Eu?” (How about me?) recorded in 2012 by singer Negra Li in São Paulo. Recently, the renown samba singer Fabiana Cozza recorded another song from Gisele.

Rodrigo Panassolo is musician, composer and music producer. He has his songs recorded by many Brazilian artists, among them the band Chimarruts, which included his song “Não deixe de Sonhar” (Never Stop Dreaming) in the live CD and DVD released by EMI. “Versos Dobrados” (Folded Verses) is the name of his first original record, also released in Japan. In this initial production, the artist presents compositions that dialogue with an aesthetic unity and language, traveling through several genres and styles, and promoting the meeting of the genuine Brazilian songs with musical freedom and improvisation conception spread by Jazz. As a parallel project, Rodrigo recently released a tribute to Chet Baker, the jazz musician that most influenced his music. In the year of 2016, Rodrigo composed, mixed and produced almost 100 tracks for diverse artists around the world, including the Korean singer Nina Yoo.
