Viola da Samba (a wordplay on samba being played on a viola da gamba) is a project creating a bridge between Renaissance and Brazilian popular music. The pure, light sounds of early music instruments blend with the vivacious rhythms and rich harmonies of samba and bossa nova. The subtle timbres and the versatile sounds of the clavichord together with the viola da gamba match perfectly with the spirit of Brazilian music, revealing the connection between the elements (scales, rhythms and temperaments) of popular and early music. The natural gut strings of the viol create a pure and organic sound. This offers a new experience for the world of jazz and bossa. Altogether, Nadine Balbeisi’s delicate and refined voice, Jean Kleeb’s mastery of playing bossa chords on the clavichord and Fernando Marín’s skillful bowing of the viola da gamba create a perfect musical symbiosis.

Viola da Samba:
- Nadine Balbeisi (soprano)
- Fernando Marín (viola da gamba)
- Jean Kleeb (clavichord)
