Vanessa Moreno & Fi Maróstica
Disarming duo with a surprising crossover between jazz and world music
With just voice, electric or double bass, and hand percussion, the duo of Vanessa Moreno and Fi Maróstica, and their disarming album Vem Ver, created a sensation in Brazil. Never afraid to experiment, but never losing touch with authentic Brazilian roots, they have invented a crossover between jazz and world music that is completely original, refreshing and surprising. Vanessa Moreno’s flawless vocals are borne aloft on beautiful arrangements and underpinned by virtuoso, lyrical bass playing. Musically and personally, this married couple radiate perfect harmony. At a song festival held in 2010 they were covered in glory: Vanessa Moreno was chosen ‘Best Performer’ and Fi Maróstica ‘Best Instrumentalist’. At Viva Brasil Festival they will be playing songs from Vem Ver. A Dutch première!
