SARA SERPA Portuguese singer Sara Serpa & guitarist Andr Matos revisit their recent album "Primavera", adding some new music the duo has been working on. The 2014 release of "Primavera", the debut for the duo, was widely acclaimed by both press and the public. The New York Times says "Primavera is gemlike in its beauty and precision, and manages to be purely about the depth of their rapport (...)"; and the New Yorker calls it "(...) an enchanting new recording." Past collaborations of the duo include Guillermo Klein, Thomas Morgan or Pete Rende. Serpa and Matos will be joined this evening by two extraordinary musicians: Leo Genovese on piano and keys and Billy Mintz on drums. $10 cover plus $10 minimum http://www.saraserpa.com , http://www.serpamatos.com
SARA SERPA & ANDR MATOS - PRIMAVERA Primavera is the debut and progeny of a ten year collaboration between singer Sara Serpa and guitarist Andr Matos. The duo departs from their usual bare-bones voice-guitar setting while retaining the deep core of their collective musical identity. Serpa and Matos were born and raised in Portugal, Lisboa and Sintra, respectively, but met and connected in Boston, Massachusetts. They have been playing music together ever since. After completing their formal education at New England Conservatory, the two moved to New York City, where through observing, learning, experimenting and developing together, they produced several releases under their own names. Throughout the years, interacting with some of the most inspiring musicians in the city proved paramount to the development of their musical ideas as a duo. In these endeavors, several fruitful collaborations were born with such luminaries as influential saxophonist Greg Osby and Film Noir pianist Ran Blake. $10 cover plus $10 minimum http://www.saraserpa.com
