This album is a rich introduction to the uniquely integrated world of the Classical/Brazilian fusion artist, Tiberio Nascimento. Not only is he an innovative composer and arranger, he happens to be an outstanding classical guitarist and improvisational flutist, trumpet player and singer. He is a one-of-a-kind Brazilian mouth percussionist whose vocal range spans four octaves.
As a jazz player, Tiberio has recorded with Paquito D'Rivera, K.D. Lang, and David Byrne. He has performed with classical artists such as Paula Robison and Tomoko Masur (wife of Kurt Masur). He is featured on the Oscar-nominated soundtrack for the film, "Bagdad Cafe."
As a classical guitarist, Tiberio has given recitals throughout the United States and Canada, and in major concert halls in Austria, England, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and Switzerland. He has had the distinct privilege of playing privately for Andres Segovia and Baden Powell.
Tiberio attended New York's High School of Music and Art and graduated from Columbia University with a degree in both psychology and music. His earliest musical mentors and inspirations are his father, Joao, and his mother, Nancy.
