“We hear the playing of a flute interacting with the singing of the birds of the Amazon river, and we are overcome by a feeling of freedom. Freedom is not a frozen state. Freedom is a river that must not be slowed down, because otherwise it will freeze into its opposite.” This describes Hermeto Pascoal and it is remarkablehow many instruments he can play. He played with the great maestros such as Miles Davis and Duke Pearson, who looked up to him in amazement because he was able to show them that great music does not need genres. Before that, he had already toured with the bossa stars Sérgio Mendes and Antônio Carlos Jobim. Open rehearsal and composition methods, avant-garde melodies embedded in traditional Brazilian rhythms, such as the samba, meet modern production techniques. Where does this exceptional musician and man gets his energy from? Perhaps we will find a possible answer on 17.07.2022 in the Kulturzelt, where we want to let ourselves drift on his river to freedom with the 86-year-old soul Hermeto Pascoal, who still inspires so many young musicians.
