From the slums of Recife in the north-east of Brazil to rising star of the jazz piano: Amaro Freitas, a rising star of Carioca and world jazz, has worked tirelessly to become the artist he is today, thanks to his extraordinary talent and determination. Gaining international attention for “an approach to the keyboard that is so unique as to be astonishing” (Down Beat), he won instant acclaim with his first two albums, Sangue Negro (2016) and Rasif (2018). The following album Sankofa (2021), expression of a spiritual quest among forgotten stories, ancient philosophies and inspirational figures from black Brazil, is his most extraordinary and sincere work to date.
