Mixát Yard will host a truly special musical duo on Friday, namely Gabi and Bob Zé. The duo is active in the Brazilian MBP genre, mostly performing covers, sometimes accompanied by a Brazilian pandeiros/percussion musician. If they win your heart at the event, the band is also open to invitations, they are happy to create this magical atmosphere anywhere.
Bob Zé, the duo’s guitarist, was born in “Pão-de-açúcar” in Alagoas. It originates from the northeastern part of Brazil, bringing with it the heritage of rhythms from there, samba and bossa nova. Self-taught, multi-instrumentalist, he plays jazz and blues in his own unique way.
Gabi, the singer of the duo, was born in Vajdaság, and in the last 7-8 years she has explored almost the entire palette of Brazilian culture in Budapest. She came into contact with the genre of MPB in a special way: during samba dance lessons, a song was played, which made her curious, then she started researching and thus discovered this musical style.
