TRIO Corta-Jaca VIDEO link:

 No sequins or feathers here.  Just rhythms that will make you want to dance in your seat and melodies that conjure images of Rio, a city whose music has charmed and inspired musicians around the world for many epochs.

  Having spent years in Brazil playing and studying its music, guitarist Doug de Vries brings to the stage a wealth of knowledge and skill that no other in Australia can rival.

Flautist Asha Henfry fuses her Classical technical mastery with sensitivity and instinct like no other; and on cavaquinho, Josh Bridges ties them together with endless rhythmic spontaneity and groove.
   Taking this genre back to its core, the trio gather around one microphone. Taking turns at melody, improvisation and counterpoint. Each performer displays virtuosity and an innate understanding of choro. In this concert, Trio Corta-Jaca will explore works by 19th century feminist composer Chiquinha Gonzaga and the legacy she left behind.

Choro is a genre that is ever evolving and blossoming around the world. And for good reason – it’s energetic, soulful and joyous.



 One of Australia’s most brilliant guitarists and a significant composer for the guitar, Doug de Vries has excelled in many musical genres, from jazz to choro, tango and bossa nova.
 He is considered Australia’s leading exponent of Brazilian guitar repertoire and has produced more than a dozen recordings, including a solo album of original works and classic Brazilian repertoire, DDV Solo


"Doug de Vries has long been revered for his magical playing and willingness and determination to explore new sounds and styles.  His artistry is eloquent, joyous and exuberant" Herald Sun.
