Brasil Jazz Sinfônica is a unique orchestra.
It was created in 1990 by the Government of the State of São Paulo, in Brazil, to perform modern popular music.
Evidently the focus is the extremely rich Brazilian popular music, such as Samba, Choro, Frevo and Bossa-Nova, but the group also performs all genre of modern popular music, such as Jazz, Latin and Tango.
The name “Jazz Sinfônica” comes from its instrumental construction: a fully symphonic orchestra, plus a typical jazz Big Band, totalizing 70 musicians.
The orchestra is now 30 years old, and Maestro Mauricio Galindo has been working with it for 20 years.
