Performer

Dom Salvador Sextet

This double bill honors an Afro-Brazilian legend with the premiere of a film documentary screening that explores his legacy and a live performance that celebrates it. Often called the “godfather of Brazilian soul,” Dom Salvador is a jazz pianist, composer, and arranger who helped create Bossa Nova before fleeing Brazil at the height of its military dictatorship. Dom Salvador & Abolition follows him through his adopted hometown of New York City—where’s been the resident pianist at the River Café for the last 44 years—flitting from record shops to jazz clubs to the hallowed stage at Carnegie Hall. He brings his Samba Jazz Sextet to his performance at SummerStage, featuring David Sneider (trumpet), Laura Dreyer (saxophone, flute), Gili Lopes (bass), Alevtina Wilcox (trombone), Graciliano Zambonin (drums), and featuring guest vocalist Raquel Lima.
