Come join platinum-selling Toronto pianist Attila Fias as he returns to Victoria for the holidays and presents the captivating music of Brazil!
He will be appearing with his fantastic trio, veteran Ken Lister on upright bass, and Toronto’s Richard Brisco on drums, plus a special guest.
Attila’s unique blend of sounds from across the globe reflects his rich and varied musical background - and this time he will be playing the authentic sounds from all across Brazil. You may be familiar with Samba and Bossa Nova, but there are many more exciting and wonderful rhythms and styles to get to know. This will be the perfect night to do just that!
Both Attila and Richard have spent lots of time in Brazil, being immersed in the music, language and culture, and they want to share this experience with you.
