JARDS MACALÉ / Brasilien

In the organizer's words:

Jardinian-born Anet da Silva, nicknamed Macalé, is undoubtedly one of the great names in Brazilian music. An almost unknown hero who, despite not enjoying the notoriety of many of his colleagues, is an undisputed pillar of music from across the Atlantic. Revolutionary, restless and irreverent, visionary, modern and challenging - there are many adjectives that can be used to talk about the musician and composer, so great is his work and influence. At the age of 80, almost 60 years into his career, Jards' name has crossed paths with many others who have left their mark on music in Brazil. Caetano Veloso, Maria Bethânia, Gilberto Gil, Vinicius de Morais, Tom Jobim, João Donato, Criolo or Kiko Dinucci - Jards' work is a true treasure that transcends genres and generations. His partnership with Gal Costa is certainly the most significant of his career. Vapor Barato, Mal Secreto, Anjo Avesso, Plusars e Quasars, Hotel das Estrelas and Profana are some of Macalé's songs that have been immortalized by the beauty and power of Gal Costa's voice. He also accompanied her on tours, on records and in the legendary show "Meu nome é Gal".

Like many of her contemporaries, she actively resisted the military dictatorship that imprisoned Brazil. Her work was censored and her name was blacked out in the newspapers. She was even just a few steps away from prison when she performed "The Beggars' Banquet" to celebrate the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

He made his solo debut in 1972 with the record of the same name. Jard's Macalé is a masterpiece, innovative and challenging, combining the spirit of samba and bossa nova with the fiery essence of rock, classical harmonies and the improvisational spirit of jazz. Over the years, this iconic record has been discovered and applauded by a new generation, giving it new strength. In 2022, on the 50th anniversary of this work, Jards Macalé put together a new band, with Gui Held on guitar, Pedro Dantas on bass and Maria Portugal on drums. To celebrate and pay homage, Jards is reviving this work in a concert that will be like his own work: indomitable and unforgettable.
