Jazz en fete - Radio RCN

Dears,  I would like to share with you the link of my interview on Radio RCN, by Jean-Peirre Salman to the program JAZZ EN FETE recorded in 04/09/2017.

The RCB Studios are i Nice and the Italian musician Andrea Bazzicalupo was also interviewed.

Jean-Pierre Saiman was part of the Jury in the Nice Jazz Festival Contest and I was one of the finalists. After watching me singing there he invited me to be interviewed on his program. Thank you Jean-Pierre Saiman.

Take a listen:


I am an independente singer,  no manager, no producer, no Label. As I said in the interview i hope to find a Label to recorde my next CD.

It's about time, isn't it? :)

Kisses to all you!




Marine Plaisance

Last Saturday, 16/08/17, we went to play again in the beautiful Cavalaire Sur Mer. Cavalaire stays just before Saint Tropez , at the Cote D'Azur..

The concert it was in a Private party for the Marine Plaisance, responsible for the distribution of the Yatchs Prestige - Jeaneau in France and in the

region. The Company is dircted by Jean-Marc Sandre and his lovely family and it was a pleasure to play for them and their guests.

My Quartet was composed by me, Pierre Palvair, Nicolas Castagnola and Luciano Dantas.

The public enjoyed the beautiful event and our Brazilian Music.


The public could visit the yatchs exposed in the area menwhile we were playing

It was fun ! It was class ! it was really nice!

By the way I love Cavalaire sur Mer,

Thank you Marina Plaisance!





Le Chateau D'Augerville

In 2013  I traveled from France to Sweden to sing for the first time in a Castle. It was the marriage of my lovely friend and Singer Maria Rylander. It was a surprise that her parents , also musicians, prepared for her together with my musical partner Harald Erici that accompanied me on his piano. It was beautiful.An unforgettable marriage.

In 22/07/2017 I traveled from Cannes to Paris with my musiciens Georges Ferrero and Luciano Dantas to sing in a Castle: Le Chateau D'Augerville.What a beautiful place! Amazing!


We had fun with the guests that enjoyed our concert.

The interesting thing in this concert is that we had a multi-cultural guest/audience and many of them were brazilians so...we started the concert in Trio and we finished as a Sextet because some Brazilian guys enjoyed our group playing the several instruments of percussion that Luciano had in the scene. So...it was really cool! We played, we danced, we had fun !

Thank you to the Groom that have trusted on me to make part of this special moment of their life with his bride.

Cheers !!! Felicidades ao casal!




Soirees Estivales 2017


Thanks to the Conseil General of the French Riviera, each city and village can enjoy  free concerts, theater and dance spectacles with artists of all genres making the Summer here also a very cultural moment. The Conseil General promotes more than 400 spetacles in the Summer and my Jussanam Quintet was one of the groupes that have been selected by them and we played 3 concerts and 3 differents places open air.

The first place it was the Village of L'Escarene , a  nice place , with a simpathetic Priest called Evaristo that enjoyed our concert with the public. I went down of the stage to dance with the audience and they were glad as me.





The second Village it was up there in the mountains called Venanson , a beautiful village and we were very well received there and we had a very warm audience and it was nice to have many dancing meanwhile we were playing. A lovely night and concert.


Here with the SUB- City Mayor of Venanson - Monsieur MIRON Antoine - He is a lovely person that made an interesting discours presenting me and my band and he talked a little bit about my similarities with Josephine Baker, looking and trajectory. I was touchd by his words since I have a dream project about Josephine Baker. I already acted as Josephine Baker in the spetacle Casino da Urca in Rio de Janeiro many years before to move to Europe. The interestng thing is that Monsieur Miron did not know about those projects or my dreams when I arrived in the City but he first thing he said in our first talking there it was about Josephine feelings when he saw me. Very interesting, very toughtful.


The third Village it was Belvedere , also up there in the mountains. It was our biggest audience of the 3 concerts and it was wonderful ot receive so many claps when we did play my own compositions. I also danced with the audience in this one. The children were the first to start dancing, interesting.It was a lovely night , closing very well ours concerts for the Conseil General - Soirees Estivales.


Jussanam ,Jo Kaiat, Pat Taboni, Yann Roaldes, Alain Caruba

Merci Conseil General des Alpes Maritimes. Merci L'Escarene, Merci Venanson, Merci Belvedere!






Summer Festivals

Hi Dears, hope you are having a good time,

My Summer in the French Riviera brought some very nice concerts. I have been selected by the judges of 3 Jazz Festivals Contests- Nice Jazz,

Caval'air jazz and Jazz a venir a Porquerolles , got be finalist and performed to the public and the judges in all 3. In fact, the selection have been

based in my own compositions that are included in my CD Rio /Reykjavik, to have own compositions is a major requirement to participate in this kind

of Festival Contest in France. To be selected it was already an award for me and I was very glad. Congrats to all finalists and winners.

Nevertheless, it was missing here with me , my Icelandic Jazz musicians with whom I worked for many years and with whom

I got a perfect musical connexion. Since they are in Iceland and could not come to play with me , I performed with different French musiciens

and since we don't play together so often and we did not have enough time to rehearsals , of course it was difficult to win something .

Another thing that made is difficult is the fact that in Iceland I had a JAZZ Band and I was working with the leading Jazz musicians of Reykjavik.

It would made the all difference to have them playing with me.

Anyway, thanks to all different musiciens that participated with me in those 3 Festivals.

I need to thanks specially the musiciens of my Trios: Pierre Palvair and Alain Caruba that help me to make a good performer in the Cavalaire Jazz

and a big thanks to Georges Ferrero and Luciano Dantas that helped me to make the best performance of all , playing with me in the Nice Jazz

Festival Contest. It was  really a very good feeling and I was very happy playing with them.

I don't have any plans to make new inscriptions to participate in this kind of contests anymore, but it was worth the experience. We have make it.

We got the finals. "Le'ts pass to another thing" as they say in France.

New projects are coming. Let's do it!

Concert -Theatre Alexandre III- Cannes

Hello my dears, this blog is to tell you a little bit about my last concert in the Theater Alexandre III in Cannes - 04/11/16 - In fact it was my official PREMIERE with my French Quintet composed by me and the musicians , Jo Kaiat on the piano,Alain Caruba on the drums, Yann Roaldes on Sax and Pat Taboni on the Bass.

Bonjour mes amis, ce blog est pour vous raconter un peu sur mon dernier concert au Théâtre Alexandre III à Cannes - 04/11/16 - En fait, c'était ma PREMIERE officielle avec mon Quintette Français composé par moi et les musiciens Jo Kaiat -piano, Alain Caruba - batterie, Yann Roaldes -Sax et Pat Taboni sur la basse.

The Theater Alexandre III it is a very nice place to sing in , very comfortable for the audience and very well located. We enjoyed to playing there and the audience enjoyed our concert. I am very happy with so nice comments form the audience that were really glad and satisfied as we were too. Make the audience happy is our happiness as artists, so...we got it.

Le Théâtre Alexandre III c'est un endroit très agréable à chanter, très conffortable pour le public et très bien situé a Cannes. Nous avons apprécié jouer là-bas et le public a apprécié beaucoup notre concert. Je suis très heureuse avec les commentaires si sympas du public qui étaient vraiment heureux et satisfaits que nous étions. Le bonheur du public et notre bonheur comme artistes, alors ...on a reussi.

I was very happy that everything went well specially because I was producing the concert all alone and it is not easy at all to have all responsibility of the production plus the responsibility of be singing on the stage in this Theater in Cannes for a quite special audience.You know, a premiere, it is always a premiere, it`s more tense of course. But the results were all good.

Je suis très heureuse que tout se bien passé, parce que j'ai produis seul le concert et c'est ne pas facile du tout d'être responsable de la production et de la responsabilité de chanter sur la scène de ce Théâtre à Cannes pour un public tout à fait particulier . Vous savez, une première, c'est toujours une première, c'est plus tendu bien sûr. Mais les résultats étaient tous bons. Et on va suivre , parce que l`art rendre la vie plus belle.
