“CORETO” is a group formed by 11 elements of the new generation of musicians based in Oporto - Portugal, whose individual activities are already recognized in the national jazz scene.
This group arises in the heart of “Porta-Jazz Association” with the aim of creating a "space" to explore and materialize an experimental and original repertoire, coming from various creative sources that emerge in Jazz in Portugal.
“Aljamia” is the startup of this project given trough the music of João Pedro Brandão that, after a study dedicated to the Mediterranean traditional music, explored elements and concepts related to it, without forgetting the reason that lead him to write this music - Jazz.
