Chão Maior

Chão Maior

Artistas_SITE-05

Created by trumpet player and scholar Yaw Tembe, Chão Maior is a jazz ensemble than expand from rigid cannons of what is and should be. The sextet is clearly in its sweet spot when improv takes place, but its incorporation of folks motifs and kraut rock pace allows them to be unpredictable, yet familiar. Over the six pieces of their debut release, Drawing Circles, the lisbon-based ensemble creates rich landscapes, ever shifting, never still, and often hypnotic.
