One of Brazil's most influential and longest running bands, Azymuth has created an entirely new sound: Jazz-funk and samba fused into an infectious blend known as “Samba Doido”.
They have played with just about everyone throughout Brazil’s golden era of MPB, jazz, soul and funk (including Jorge Ben, Milton Nascimento, Tim Maia, Elis Regina and Marcos Valle, to name just a few). In addition to their influence on jazz and funk, Azymuth's worldwide contribution to electronic music and hip-hop is undeniable. They have collaborated with greats such as 4hero, Madlib and Jazzanova and can be heard in various remixes.

Fifty years after their formation, Azymuth have released over thirty albums and are still busy writing, recording and playing. And with the same energy as at the beginning of their career. Even after the unexpected death of drummer and founding member Ivan Mamão Conti in the spring of 2023, there are no signs of fatigue. With Renato Massa, one of Brazil's most renowned drummers, a more than worthy replacement has been built to honor Mamão's memory and legacy and keep the spirit of Azymuth alive.

This masterclass is an opportunity for both musicians and music enthusiasts to ask the Jazz Funk legends any questions they've always wanted to ask. The conversation will then evolve depending on the composition of the participants.

No registration required. The Masterclass will be held in Portuguese with simultaneous German translation.
