Savassi Festival 2014 NY
(Published: September 02, 2014)

Originating in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, since 2003 Savassi Festival has focused on jazz and instrumental music. Beginning as a street festival associated with the musical activities of Café com Letras restaurant, it developed into a matrix of musical activities that includes contests, recordings, artistic collaborations, exhibitions, artistic residencies and a host of live concerts, representing the full spectrum of jazz, from jazz-symphonic pieces to eletronic music+jazz performances.

In the last 12 years it promoted 465 concerts, 53 workshops, 141 DJs performances to an audience of 220 thousand people. To gain access to the main event - the open-air street festival - one should donate 1kg of non-perishable food, fully destined to help people in social risk.

In 2013, Savassi Festival promoted its first New York edition. Completely focused on Brazilian instrumental music, featuring Brazilians and non-Brazilians, a wide range of music was performed, from that of Hermeto Pascoal, Milton Nascimento, Toninho Horta and Paulo Moura to the most current wave of Brazilian and Brazilian-inspired composers.

In its second edition, Savassi Festival 2014 NY will showcase 13 concerts in various jazz clubs and one workshop at Columbia University. The program includes performances of artists such as Abelita Mateus, André Mehmari, Andre Vasconcelos, Chico Pinheiro, Cliff Korman, Edmar Castanheda, Kevin Hays, Paula Santoro, Scott Feiner, Sergio Krakowski and Tulio Araujo and Dobradura Project.

Savassi Festival NY is produced in collaboration with America's Society.
