Join us as the Ali Ryerson-Joe Carter Duo celebrate the music of Brazil – Samba, Bossa Nova, Choro, Baiao and more, styles that are based on and a blend of African rhythms, indigenous rhythms and European folk and dance rhythms. Ali and Joe take things a step further by using their Jazz backgrounds to add Jazz improvisation into the tunes, creating a sound that blends the best of both worlds. In other words: the best of Music from “Both Sides of the Equator”.
