Smith Fine Arts Series Presents: The Assad Duo
Known as part of “Brazil’s First Family of Music”, Sérgio and Clarice Assad are a captivating father-daughter combination. The elder is a legendary guitarist, his daughter a GRAMMY-nominated vocalist, composer, and pianist. Together they bring Brazilian jazz vocals, Bossa Nova, and Samba to life. The Assads toured for over a decade in such prestigious venues as the Metropolitan Museum in New York, the Palais de Beaux Arts in Belgium, and Le Casino de Paris in Paris. The duo has since traveled extensively in the US and recorded two albums, most recently a collaboration with Third Coast Percussion. Clarice and Sérgio share their timeless passion for musical composition and performance, together reimagining old classics and creating new works as a collaborative team. The family essence is ever present, wrapped in the warmth and intricacies of ancestry and connection. “Clarice constantly captivates, whether singing in Portuguese, delivering wordless vocals, or taking to the piano bench, and Sérgio, likewise, manages to seduce with his every gesture on guitar.” –www.allaboutjazz.com
