Carlos Vaz

Ian Cardoso - Vocals
Tiago Michelin - Drums

and Special Guest:
Fernando Michelin - Piano

Carlinhos Vaz was born on the Bom Sucesso Ranch of José Vaz Sobrinho in Minas Gerais, Brazil. He studied at the Technological Institute of Minas Gerais and then came to the United States in 1974.  As a child, Carlinhos Vaz demonstrated through his natural musicality, his passion for Brazilian Folk and Brazilian Popular Music (MPB) and at 39, began composing his own music. Vaz has long been a figure in local Brazilian music in Boston, as both a generous patron to burgeoning local artists, as well as pursuing music himself.

He has recorded with Jamelo da Mangueira, Morais Moreira, Genival Lacerda, and one of the great composers who worked with Milton Nascimento, Celso Adolfo and Carlos Rocha, who ultimately inspired Vaz to play and write music.

Carlos Vaz now presents a retrospective of his work over the past twenty years, accompanied by a line-up of deftly talented musicians, to give us an extraordinary highlight into his passion for Brazilian music.

Gafiera Night

Gafiera Night

featuring Gustavo Martins, Instructor, Dancer with Fernando Brandão & Bohemia Carioca Band

Gafiera
8pm Dance Class followed by social dance with Live music from 9pm until midnight.
$12

Samba de Gafieira, or simply Gafieira, is a partner dance version of samba dances.

This style of dance evolved from the maxixe, which was the first urban dance that surged in Rio de Janeiro, in the second half of the 19th century. The maxixe, music and dance, was a mix of several influences, mainly the African lundu, the European polca. The name comes from the nightclubs of the time, known as gafieiras.

With the development of the samba style, that surged around 1920, the gafieira dance turned very popular in the 30s and 40s. The initial instrumentation of flute, mandolin, guitars, cavaquinho and percussion, evolved in the 30s to small and big band ensembles, typical in the swing era. Typically, but not limited to it, Samba de gafieira is danced to the sounds of big bands playing samba instead of jazz.

Gafieira is danced to the music styles of samba, choros, maxixes, and various samba sub-genres, like samba-funk and samba-jazz. Its style is characterized by tango-like choreography, where partners dance embraced together, and follow a series of typical steps. Usually danced in pairs, it sometimes adds variations that includes solo and group choreographies with samba-no-pé steps.

Note that Gafieira dance style has nothing to do with the popular and generalized term ballroom dance style associated with International Latin and American ballroom samba. For some mysterious reasons, the choreographies and music the ballroom dancers use in (what they call) samba could not be further different from the original Brazilian samba.

We welcome dancers of all styles and ages to learn the real samba de gafieira style!

Flutist, composer, author and educator Fernando Brandão returns to Ryles with his Bohemia Carioca band to perform sambas, choros and maxixes. Mr. Brandão is a Professor at Berklee College of Music and a faculty member of the Community Music Center of Boston, both for more than two decades. A leading educator in Brazilian music, he has given many lectures about its music styles, history and composers. Mr. Brandão is native of Rio de Janeiro Brazil.

Gustavo Martins is a renowned Brazilian dancer, educator and choreographer from Rio de Janeiro. Mr. Martins has 16 years of samba de gafieira and ballroom dance. He has been thought in the most acclaimed ballroom school in Rio de Janeiro such as, Jaime Aroxa and Ponto de Encontro. In 2009 he was one of the choreographer of the samba school Caprichoso de Pilares and Mangueira.
