About the Webinar
Join us for a dynamic tour of the Brazilian / American musicology and evolution; how ‘Jazz’ found ‘Samba’ and how the two became the wonderful exotic lovers that inspired the world in the Sixties and beyond.
Richards study of Brazilian music will provide the insights to the foundation structures leading into Stephen’s applied song writing and furthering the push into post Bossa Nova exploration.
