Trio da Paz, May 12th, 2018

Romero Lubambo, guitar; Nilson Matta, bass; Duduka da Fonseca, drums

The initial common bond of this trio was that they all share Brazil as their native homeland. But now, after over 30 years playing music together, they are recognized as the ultimate rhythm section in Brazilian jazz. They have been the perfect choice for jazz legends like Kenny Barron, Joe Locke, Claudio Roditi, George Garzone and Herbie Mann in their searches for an authentic samba and bossa nova feel. Each member of Trio da Paz is an accomplished master: Guitarist Romero Lubambo "may be the best practitioner of his craft in the world today" (Jazziz); 5 time Grammy winner and bassist Nilson Matta has been called a "virtuoso" by YoYo Ma, and drummer Duduka DaFonseca has been called "the Patron Saint of Samba jazz" (All About Jazz). "After 30 years together, we still bring the same energy, emotion and happiness whether we're stepping onstage or into a recording session," says Matta. "That's the secret to Trio da Paz, what captivates our fans and why we keep making new ones all over the world."

"As friends, Duduka, Romero and Nilson are utterly secure in their enduring triangle, and as musicians they tap well-established elements of bedrock Brazilian samba and bossa nova (the music of Jobim, Gilberto and Bonfá) as well as bebop and its developments." -- Jazz Critic, Howard Mandel
