Mishka Adams and Beto Caletti
Songs from South America
JAZZ FOUR CONTINENTS
Sparked by a mutual love of Brazilian music that led to a transatlantic collaboration between London and Buenos Aires, the duo of Beto and Mishka has its musical roots firmly planted in South America’s Afro-Latin rhythmic traditions. Their sound stretches from the African influenced Baião of northeastern Brazil, south through the jazzy harmonies of samba and bossa nova from Rio, down into the earthy beats of Uruguayan candombe, and arriving finally at the dancing rhythms of the chacarera and milonga of Argentina. Their compositions emerge from this melting pot of rythms, and take the listener on a journey through South America in four diverse languages – Spanish, Portuguese, English, and Tagalog (Filipino) – Mishka’s mother tongue. The combination of guitar, handheld percussion and intricate vocal harmonies bring an intimate experience of story and song, tradition and innovation, and love across continents.
“She is a songwriter’s dream – a great understanding of text, and, quite simply, one of the most beautiful voices I’ve ever heard”
Pete Churchill, Professor of Jazz at the Royal Academy of Music, London
“I´ve been listening to Beto Caletti´s music for a while and I´ve become a fan of his. He is an extraordinary and highly talented musician. When he walks the path of his Brazilian influences he sounds Brazilian and even better than many Brazilian musicians of great fame here in Brazil.”
Ivan Lins, multi Grammy Award-winning musician
“Refreshingly unpretentious and just plain talented”
