Bringing Portuguese culture to life through live weekly performances and a new CD, Rua das Pretas earns praise for its authentic sound and local flavor - JAZZWEEKLY calls it 'A HINT OF HEAVEN'
(Published: March 20, 2019)


Rua das Pretas, the Lisbon-based international gathering of musicians, brings Portuguese culture to life through live weekly performances and a new CD. Their recent release ‘The Wine Album' has earned consistent praise, including this engaging new review by George Harris of JazzWeekly, in which he talks about his personal travels to Portugal and highlights the authenticity of Rua das Pretas' sound and local flavor:

"As one who has sought out these sounds in Portugal, I can attest that the only thing missing here is a plate of bacalhau."

"The sensuous strings go from classical to mandolin to even banjo, but always swaying with passion. If you take this in while you dip some bread into your ciel de strella cheese, you'll get a hint of heaven."

LISBOA BLUES...Pierre Aderne-Brian Cullman-Tanner Walle-Dirk Niepoort: Rua Das Pretas
by George W. Harris • March 11, 2019 •
If you think that Samba and Bossa Nova are the only worthwhile sounds for the Portuguese language, you're in for a treat once you discover the sounds of Fado. Essentially an Iberian form of blues, this style of music mixes the gypsy feel of the Iberian peninsula with seductive lilts of Brazil. This album features vocalist/guitarists Pierre Aderne and Brian Cullman, vocalist Brian Cullman and producer Dirk Niepoort culling together with a rotating team of musicians to take you to the small café's of Lisbon. As one who has sought out these sounds in Portugal, I can attest that the only thing missing here is a plate of bacalhau.

The songs alternate between English and Portuguese, with Aderne's folksy soto voce working well with the chiming guitars on "Fado Silencio" the lilting "Home Before Dark" and dueting with Liliana Macedo or Liz Rosa on the respectively bohemian "Fado Tinto" and "Vida De Estrela." Tanner Walle gives an American feel to "Natural As Love" and Cullman takes you to the campfire for "White Or Red." The sensuous strings go from classical to mandolin to even banjo, but always swaying with passion. If you take this in while you dip some bread into your ciel de strella cheese, you'll get a hint of heaven.


Coming soon: Newly recorded Rua das Pretas tracks, national coverage in the U.S. and UK and more!

A recent interview is here: Their intimate performances transform strangers into family, songs into religious gospel and moments into magic.
