On Friday, September 27, KCRW’s Tom Schnabel hosts his second-ever Rhythm Planet UpClose event. Tom invites Dori Caymmi to give lucky UpClose patrons a history of modern Brazilian Music.
Dori Caymmi is an accomplished composer with dozens of albums of his own and many additional albums he's written and arranged for stellar Brazilians like Gal Costa and Caetano Veloso. He is a musician's musician: not only a great guitarist and composer, but a superb orchestral arranger with an impeccable lineage: his father, Dorival Caymmi is the patriarch of modern Brazilian music. Dori's music is one of sensuality, finesse, and a subtle but persistent energy and power.
The evening takes place at New Roads School's state of the art facility in Santa Monica.
MORE ABOUT DORI CAYMMI
Rooted in Bossa Nova with a sound all his own, Dori Caymmi is a world-class, Grammy-winning, jazz musician. Following in the footsteps of his iconic father, Dorival Caymmi, his music is a fusion of jazz, pop, and Brazilian strokes that merge into a soothing sound that echo the history of his family. After numerous releases and multiple awards, including the Comenda Tiradentes (the highest honor granted by the Legislature of the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais), Dori continues to write, arrange, and play music in his inimitable way, most recently releasing Poesia Musicada, a tender memoir to his late father’s memory.
