"What this guy do with a Pandeiro in his hands is mind blowing." (Rolling Stones Brazil)
"Congratulations to Tulio for the album and Lucas Telles for the arrangements. Monduland is incredibly beautiful." (Rosa Passos)
"Tulio Araujo's fusion between Samba, Choro and Jazz is the irrefutable proof of the excelent instrumental music that is been done in Brazil." (Carlos Calado)
"While some masters puts the 'Pandeiro' on their last names, such as Jackson and Zito, Tulio Araujo puts it on his pocket." (Jornal O Tempo)
Brazilian percussionist Túlio Araújo returns to the Bay Area with a project that is two years in the making: His new album #Monduland, that reflects his deep studies of harmonic, melodic, rhythmic, and metric modulation.
Túlio, who has degrees in percussion, music production, and sound engineering, has studied with some of the most renowned music masters, including Ian Guest, Santiago Reyther and Marcos Suzano. He created this idea of a contemporary jazz ensemble built around his main instrument, the Pandeiro, a tambourine-style frame drum ubiquitous in Brazilian music. That's what he called "The Dobradura Project".
After 4 years traveling alone and exchanging experiences with local musicians, Araujo is coming with his own quartet, from Brazil, for the first time to the United States. It's an unmissable concert, full of tunes from his 3 released albums ("Manguera" in 2012, "East" in 2014 and "Monduland" in 2017), along with a rainbow of surprising grooves and harmonic colors.
