As a producer and presenter with the BBC World Service, Mônica Vasconcelos has made radio programmes about the history of bossa nova and the experience of living in Brazil under the military government which seized power in a coup in 1964 and held on to it until 1985. She is also a singer, and tonight’s programme is largely drawn from “São Paulo Tapes”, an album in which the singer and her producer, Robert Wyatt, drew their repertoire from the songs written during the 21-year period of repression by composers such as Chico Buarque, João Bosco, Ivan Lins and Caetano Veloso. Mônica Vasconcelos was born in São Paulo. She has performed on many major festivals and jazz clubs, and the new album is the seventh of her career. Among the members of her band is the pianist Steve Lodder, who appeared at Jazzfest Berlin 2015, playing the music of David Bowie with Dylan Howe’s Subterraneans.

Als Redakteurin und Moderatorin des BBC World Service produzierte Mônica Vasconcelos Radiosendungen über die Geschichte des Bossa Nova und das Leben in Brasilien unter der Militärdiktatur, die von 1964 bis 1985 herrschte. Sie ist aber auch Sängerin. Ihr Programm beim Jazzfest schöpft zum Großteil aus den „São Paulo Tapes“, einem Album, für das sie und ihr Produzent Robert Wyatt vor allem Lieder bearbeiteten, die in dieser 21-jährigen Periode der Unterdrückung von Liedermachern wie Chico Buarque, João Bosco, Ivan Lins und Caetano Veloso geschrieben wurden. Mônica Vasconcelos wurde in São Paulo geboren. Sie trat bei vielen namhaften Festivals auf und veröffentlichte bereits sieben Alben. Ein Mitglied ihrer Band ist der Pianist Steve Lodder, der beim Jazzfest Berlin vor zwei Jahren zusammen mit Dylan Howes Band Subterraneans Musik von David Bowie spielte.
