A nice Danish traditional tune brought to us by Signe Kierkgaard Schmidt, our great fiddle player from Denmark. We will play it with the Nufolk Global Connections Orchestra on tour as soon as the emergency is over. Unfortunatly we are not able to play it together for now, so our fantastic accordion player Guus Herremans cloned himself for you!
New stuff coming very soon, so stay tuned!

With a huge fascination for bossa nova, improvisation, jazz and tradional music, #LuizMurá seeks to connect Brazil with other melodies and rhythms around the world. Born in Rio de Janeiro, Luiz was always close to a musical atmosphere. Listening to samba in the bars and the streets of Brazil together with his multicultural family – Japanese, Portuguese, Brazilian, Sicilian and Calabrese –, mixing music and cultures were present in his nature since before he was even born. After long studies at Universidade livre Tom Jobim and Universidade Berklee Souza Lima “Faculdade Santa Marcelina”, he won the “Premios Estimúlos Música” in 2008, a prize for new songwriters/composers in São Paulo, to record his first album. This album was released by Tratore Abel, and one of his songs was featured at the “DVD multishow ao vivo singer Maria Gadú”, which was broadcasted on national television in 2010. He has worked with many important musicians from the world scene, including Maria Gadú, Ubaldo Versolato, Luiz Guello, Sylvinho Mazzuca, Sebastian Notini, Niclas Höglind, Christoffer Johansson, Ricardo Vogt, Magnus Lindgren and Gustav Lundgren.

We're happy to share with you the second step of our Global Tour!
Let's discover the magic of #folk music! 🎶

International artists from all over Europe will join together to play the traditional sounds of folk music.
A show that enshrines a musical and cultural partnership that unites the various types of folklore in the world.
In this project that anthropologically embodies a new concept of 'doing together', we will spend the evening playing #folk.

Our project, co-funded by the European Union, will also be the subject of research and studies by UNICT (University of Catania, IT).
