Composer/singer/pianist Luiz Simas was born in Rio de Janeiro. He performed and recorded with some of the greatest Brazilian artists, and many of his original compositions were recorded in Brazil and abroad. Living in New York since 1989, he has performed in venues such as the Birdland Jazz Club, the Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, the Metropolitan Room, and the Iridium in New York. He’s also performed in Jazz Festivals and clubs in Norway, France, the UK, Ukraine, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, the Caribbean, and Brazil. In 2018 he formed the Simas & Amorim Duo with brilliant Brazilian guitarist Wesley Amorim. Luiz is thrilled to be performing in this concert at Saint Francis Xavier. The program will include Luiz’s seldom performed composition Mata Atlântica (Atlantic Forest) Piano Suite, as well as other original pieces and his arrangements of well-known Brazilian tunes.
