Fred Ferreira is one of the most talented musicians of his generation.
The Portuguese drummer and producer has built a remarkable career over the past
20 years. He started out as a drummer in
the project Yellow W Van. He’s lent his talent to bands such as Oioai,
Dapunksportif, Os Maduros, Buraka Som Sistema, 5-30, Orelha Negra and Banda do
Mar. This is not a musician that will rest on his laurels, instead, he is
always in search of something new, which was the case of his solo venture in
2019, O Amor Encontra-te no Fim. The
next step in this new chapter in his career came in 2021 with Madlib,
where he pays tribute to American rapper and producer Otis Jackson Jr, one of
his references and a musician who ‘decants the sound’, according to Fred. It’s
therefore no surprise that jazz and hip hop are present in this album.
Musicians Eduardo Cardinho (vibraphone), Tomás Marques (saxophone), Márcio
Augusto (bass) and Karlos Rotsen (piano and keyboard) accompany Fred in this
musical journey that showcases the artist’s quality and versatility. He’ll
perform at Super Bock Super Rock on 14th July, on the LG by Rádio
