NEWSLETTER - JULY / AUGUST 2014

This has been a special month so far.

I had the huge honour at the beginning of the month to perform with the great Portuguese piano player MARIO LAGINHA at the Palacio da Cidadela in Cascais at a lunch organized by the Mozambicans in retribution to Portugal. Both President AnivalCavacao Silva of Portugal and Preisdent Armando Emilio Guebuza of Mozambique were present. I had an opportunity to spend some time with Mario Laginha and his family and it was a humbling experience. He is such an enormous talent and is one of the most creative contemporary Portuguese jazz musicians. He is mostly recognized for his recurrent collaborations with fellow Portuguese jazz singer Maria João, with whom he recorded over a dozen discs and toured Portugal and Europe several times.

Planning is well under way for the 4th edition of the MOREJAZZ SERIES to be held in and around Maputo on 22 & 23 August 2014 and 30 & 31 August 2014. We are all very excited and looking forward to these concerts. We have secured an AMAZING lineup and the concerts are going to be well worth attending. Details of the line ups will be announced at the beginning of August.

In my next newsletter, I will give you all the feedback, but attend if you can.

Best wishes,
MOREIRA
