Zé Luis Nascimento, percussionniste brésilien virtuose, est originaire de Salvador de Bahia. En tant que soliste et assistant à la direction musicale, il enchaine les tournées mondiales avec le ballet folklorique de Bahia, au sein duquel il a été formé.

Arrivé en France en 1996, il s'est ouvert aux styles des percussions orientales et occidentales et élabore alors un vocabulaire rythmique profondément original mêlant des instruments trés variés, qu'il rassemble dans un discours musical d'une grande cohérence.

Parfois sur scène ou en studio, il collabore avec d'artistes comme: Titi Robin, Mayra Andrade, Ayo, Césaria Evora, Grace & the Spiritual Riders, Jean-Luc Ponty, Al Di Meola, Sixun, Tania Maria, Lokua Kanza, Oumou Sangare, Tété, Souad Massi, Vladimir Cosma, Michel Legrand, Céline Rudolph, Jaques Morelenbaum, Georges Moustaki, entre autres.

Il dit avant tout "vouloir servir la musique". Inspiré, élégant et puissant, tel pourrait se définir l'univers musical de Zé Luis Nascimento.

 

 

 

Virtuoso percussionist Zé Luis Nascimento was born in Salvador de Bahia, Brazil. His career on the world stage comprises solo performances, and participation in musical directing with the Bahian Folk Ballet, where he was trained first as a dancer, and rapidly, given his talent and inclination, trained and recruited as a musician.

On arriving in France in 1996, Ze Luis discovered new types of oriental and occidental percussions. It was then that he offered the world a different, very personal, voice, developing a profoundly original rhythmic vocabulary of his own. Nasicmento creates stunning coherence resorting to a wealth of instruments.

Both on stage and in recordings, Nascimento has and continues to collaborate with ‘the great’, including Michel Legrand, Césaria Evora, Georges Moustaki, Jean-Luc Ponty, Al Di Meola, Ayo, Tania Maria, Vladimir Cosma, Lokua Kanza, Souad Massi, Grace, Titi Robin, Gulabi Sapera, Faiz Ali Faiz,   Mayra Andrade, Sixun, Paco Sery, Marcio Faraco, Oumou Sangare, Jun Miyaké, Jaques Morelenbaum, Tété, and many more.  He has thus participated and can be heard in the recordings of over a hundred international albums.

Ze Luis Nascimento’ musical universe is infused with power, inspiration, and elegance. His credo is “to serve the music”.
