Brazilian percussionist Tulio Araujo returns to New York City with a project that is two years in the making: His new album Monduland, that reflects his deep studies of harmonic, melodic, rhythmic, and metric modulation.
Tulio, who has degrees in percussion, music production, and sound engineering, has studied with some of the most renowned music masters, including Ian Guest, Santiago Reyther and Marcos Suzano. He created this idea of a contemporary jazz ensemble built around his main instrument, the Pandeiro, a tambourine-style frame drum ubiquitous in Brazilian music. That's what he called The Dobradura Project.
After 4 years traveling alone and exchanging experiences with local musicians, Araujo is coming with his own quartet, from Brazil, for the first time to the United States. It's an unmissable concert, full of tunes from his 3 released albums, along with a rainbow of surprising grooves and harmonic colors.
