Meretrio & Heinrich von Kalnein

The JazzLab

“Emiliano Sampaio is an amazingly talented Brazilian guitarist, trombonist, composer and arranger… His music is complex and beautiful.” – DownBeat

Drawing inspiration from Brazilian choro repertoire, the award-winning Meretrio brings a fresh perspective and sound to one of the world’s richest music traditions. Lead by Brazilian trombonist and guitarist Emiliano Sampaio, the group performs original compositions featuring colourful soundscapes tightly entwined with immersive grooves and virtuosic experimentation with loops and digital effects.

In this special Festival performance, Meretrio will be joined by one of the most high-profile jazz artists of the European jazz scene: illustrious saxophonist and flautist Heinrich von Kalnein.
