Biography

The richness of Brazilian popular music comes from its diversity and capacity to reinvent itself, in a process which combines rereading and daring. A process similar to that went with tango and its constant evolution.
New generation of Brazilian musicians rely on the work of the great teachersof the past and carry them forward, offering to the public new sound possibilities. Rhythms and harmonies are new voice, match language of his time, respecting the magnificent musical heritage of Brazil.
The composer Bruno Elisabetsky has been developing a career related to the universe of composition in academe (two years of specialization through in Israel and Spain) in practice, composing original soundtracks for theatre shows, performances and documentary.
In parallel to these multidisciplinary experiences, he conceived of an unreleased instrumental music repertoire with great aesthetic diversity (rhythmic, melodic and harmonic), mixing elements in the universe of the Brazilian guitar - instrument in which he graduated in So Paulo, in the Santa Marcelina University-, the practice of typical improvisation of jazz, Brazilian rhythms, the Brazilian folk song etc.
