Flora Purim and Airto Moriera were pioneers in the creation of a unique
fusion of world music and jazz. Flora's beautifully expressive voice can
caress a ballad, vibrate with raw energy or imitate the song of birds in a
Brazilian jungle---she easily handles a wide range of vocal styles. Airto
Moreira is one of the most inventive percussionists around today. His
facility on a surprising palette of African and Brazilian rhythm instruments
has inspired modern jazz groups; his solos can make a humble tambourine sound
amazing! Clinic Available
