Hi everyone! It's been a little while since I've posted, but I hope everything has been going all right for all of you. We were incredibly fortunate recently that we got to go on a tour for the first time in a year. One of our shows at Timucua Arts Foundation was recorded and filmed, and I've shared my favorite songs on my YouTube channel. You can see all five videos in the players below. Timucua is an incredible place, and we definitely hope to be back soon! If you want to support them, visit this link and scroll down to the bottom of the page for the donate button. These videos featured two of my absolute favorite musicians - the amazing Eduardo Belo on bass and Ben Zweig on drums. I'm playing piano on most of them, but I switch to the accordion for Jacob do Bandolim's classic choro, Receita de Samba.
