Premiação Melhor do Brasil nos Estados Unidos 2022
Hugo Sanbone is a composer, conductor, multi-instrumentalist, and musical director with a charismatic and innovative style. A virtuoso in the trombone and accordion, Mr. Sanbone comes out of the top crop of the exciting music scene of Bahia, Brazil. He has worked as a session player for some of the country’s most prominent artists, such as Ivete Sangalo and Carlinhos Brown. Professor of Brazilian Music and Culture at the University of Bahia, he is also the director for the institution’s Big Band, brass leader for the Neojiba Symphonic Orchestra, and the Orkestra Rumpilezz. His academic research into the traditional forms of Pagode led him to the composition of the repertoire that brought to prominence his own big band, the Sanbone Orchestra. The ensemble came to prominence due to the fusion of classical music with the contagious percussion from Bahia. Mr. Sanbone will be developing his first opera based on the African-Brazilian mythology of Yemanjá, a major water spirit from the Yoruba religion. She is an orisha: the spirit of rivers and oceans.
