Arts Wayland Jazz Series at First Parish

First Parish in Wayland will host an Arts Wayland performance on Sept. 10 at 3 p.m. Nando Michelin and Ebinho Cardoso will present their new repertoire of songs using poems by Manoel de Barros. This concert will feature an exciting mix of Brazilian popular music and jazz. The colorful songs are a vehicle to feature beautiful poems and the musicians’ mastery. This event is part of Arts Wayland’s Jazz Series, under the direction of Neil Olmstead, Berklee College Professor.

Born in Uruguay, Michelin came to Boston to study at Berklee College of Music, where he currently teaches. His discography includes over 14 CDs as a band leader, mostly original compositions, and several more as a sideman.

Cardoso is a virtuoso on his instrument. Due to the uniqueness of his music and technique, he is one of the most respected Brazilian bassists. Composer, arranger, singer and producer, Cardoso uses a typical element of the electric bass, showing its range of possibilities.

Lumanyano, a graduate of the South African College of Music and sought-after session musician, will perform on drums. Bassist and composter Ian Ashby holds a master’s degree in global jazz and has performed extensively internationally.

Tickets ($15) are available at Arts Wayland or may be purchased at the door before the performance.
