Liliana Chachian's Olumo in Concert : 18/03/13

One of the finest Brazilian singers currently working in Europe, Liliana Chachain presents her new project Olumo down at the 606 Club. Originally from Sao Paolo, Brazil, Liliana is generally recognized as one of the finest Brazilian singers in Europe. This enormously experienced performer’s work as both singer and composer has led her to collaborations with the likes of the iconic Brazilian percussionist Airto Moreira and Weather Report’s drummer Dom Um Romao as well as work with bands such as The Pet Shop Boys, Masters at work (N.Y.) and Snow Boy. She co-wrote the first “Da Lata” album (“ Songs from the Tin”) that took her on an extensive world tour, performing in major festivals and venues from New York’s Central Park to China, Japan, Canada, South Africa and most countries in Europe and with her bass player Andy Lafones’ band “Negrocan” she co-wrote and performed on three albums culminating in a Billboard nomination for the single ‘Cada Vez’. She delivers a powerful, rhythmic, set in her native Brazilian Portuguese, in a way in that only a Brazilian brought up with the music since childhood can achieve.Tonight Liliana is bringing her brand new project “Olumo” to the Club, which features some of the finest musicians in the UK, the great Neil Angilley on piano (see Wed 20th), Uruguayan bass player Andy Lafone and Italian drummer Davide Giovannini. The music will be primarily Liliana’s originals plus the occasional classic Brazilian song and is both melodic and exciting. As Liliana says, it is “..a journey through the rich and diverse music from my heart”. “Olumo”, incidentally, is the name of a huge rock in Abeokuta , Nigeria, that represents solidarity, strength and reliability. Highly recommended.

“Liliana Chachian…the melodious and brilliant Brazilian vocalist” Straight no Chaser
