Michael Pipoquinha is one of those rare self-taught super talents. The Brazilian virtuoso who gained much worldwide internet notoriety as a child prodigy is now 23 and poised to make his mark on the world music scene. He has already wowed audiences at live performances in Europe and South America. He had the great honour to be the soloist, in 2018, of a special Jaco Pastorius tribute with Latvian Radio Big Band, in Riga. Don’t miss this chance to see one of the most exciting young musicians on the planet today.
“My idea of a great show is to touch people with my music so they can leave overflowing with joy and a feeling that music heals the soul”.
Tonight’s concert will open with a small taste of one of the most unique artists you are likely to hear, the astonishing overtone singer, Anna Maria Hefele. Overtone singing is a fascinating vocal technique where it seems like one person is singing two notes at the same time. This happens by filtering and amplifying the harmonics that are contained in the sound of the human voice through specific and precise modulations of the tongue and the vocal tract.Book Now
