Maucha Adnet & Helio Alves Duo
The soulful and radiant Brazilian jazz singer Maucha Adnet and her longtime piano duo partner, pianist and composer Helio Alves take the stage this Sunday.
Rio-native Maucha Adnet’s extraordinary musicianship and musical depth are evoked in her interaction with every musician she plays with, especially Helio Alves. Adnet makes live audiences listen, smile, weep, and laugh with the joy of the sound. “Adnet’s voice is an emotionally powerful instrument capable of firmness or fragility, depending on the situation” (All About Jazz).

He is a top musician on the scene at many New York Jazz clubs, and has received uninterrupted praise throughout his career for his many musical collaborations.
