The unusual story of Brasilidade was born at a meeting of 3 artistic souls, distinctive and unique musicians. Drummer Ali Nasib, Singer and Producer Diana Hajiyeva and Claudio Franco - first Brazilian musician to leave in Azerbaijan in a post graduate project. The three musicians shared the passion of Bossa nova and in particular of its greatest masters like Tom Jobim, Vinícius de Moraes, Caetano Veloso, Toquinho.
A great friendship was born and also a feeling of sharing this knowledge and musical experiences between each other. Diana accepted the challenge to sing a large part of the repertoire in Portuguese and some others versions in Azerbaijani, Russian and English. After that, other splendid musicians joined this beautiful project, such as Rashid Aliyev with his Violin, back vocals and translations, the precision bass lines of our band maestro Ruslan Huseynov, the splendid sonority of the traverse flutist Nijat Mamedow, and many other musicians from Baku and many regions of Brazil who helped us during those 2 years of adventure.
In this online project we will have the participation of some friends: Piano recordings, Mixing and Mastering work of the great producer Theo Cancello, Sax of Daniel Cancello, Drums of Igor Wilcox, Acoustic Guitar of Damian Andres, Clarinet of Edgar Duvivier, Sax of Mike Tucker are some of the biggest names in instrumental music of South America and USA.
We invite you to get to know this unique piece of sonority and enjoy the most Brazilian flavor you can find inside Baku.
