Trio da Paz returns to the Festival! Featuring three of Brazil’s most in-demand musicians, Trio da Paz updates the infectious spirit of jazz-oriented Brazilian music. Formed in 1990 by Romero Lubambo, Nilson Matta and Duduka da Fonseca, the Trio redefines Brazilian jazz with their harmonically adventurous interactions, daring improvisations and dazzling rhythms. All three are seasoned masters of both jazz and Brazilian music with impressive resumes.
Until 3 pm the day of the performance, you can order tickets through Brown Paper Tickets, either online or by calling 800.838.3006. Brown Paper Tickets is open 24 hours/day to take your order. Tickets will be held in your name at will call.

The concert features music from Antonio Carlos Jobim, Dorival Caymmi, Hermeto Pascoal, Carlos Lyra as well as original works by Trio da Paz members.
The list of legendary musicians the members of Trio da Paz have recorded and performed with is extensive. A sampling would include guitarist Romero Lubambo’s work with Dianne Reeves, Michael Brecker, Grover Washington, Jr. and Kathleen Battle; bassist Nilson Matta’s work with Joe Henderson, Don Pullen, Yo-Yo Ma and Paul Winter; and Grammy-nominee drummer Duduka da Fonseca’s work with Astrud Gilberto, Antonio Carlos Jobim, John Scofield and Tom Harrell. Trio da Paz as a group has recorded and performed with Charlie Byrd, Herbie Mann, Lee Konitz, Kenny Barron and Nana Vasconcelos, among others.
The Trio’s latest release, CAFÉ, includes special performances by Cesar Camargo Mariano and Grammy Award winners Dianne Reeves and Joe Lovano. Trio da Paz received this accolade from critic Howard Mandel “If North Americans hadn’t invented jazz, then surely Brazilians such as the three talented young men (in Trio da Paz) would have invented something like it.”
