Vera’s Heartbeat proudly presents Brazilian guitarist, composer and producer Fabiano do Nascimento, joined by Israeli multi-instrumentalist, producer and composer Tamir Barzilay next Tuesday, January 24, at Resident as part of the acoustic series Songs a Vera. Fabiano is celebrating his latest album Lendas, which features orchestral arrangements by Vittor Santos and special participation by Arthur Verocai. With Lendas, Do Nascimento recalls memories from places that no longer exist; from fever dreams in the Amazon; from parts of the world we might never see or engage, but can imagine through music.

Fabiano and Vittor Santos met in 2017 and bonded over a mutual appreciation for Fabiano’s uncle Lúcio Nascimento and the Bossa Nova star Leny Andrade, both of whom largely influenced Fabiano’s musical foundation. In Santos, Fabiano found an arranger who was sensitive enough in his orchestrations that he could create an orchestral dialogue between stacks of strings and Do Nascimento’s plaintive plucking. It was only natural to invite the highest regarded, now legendary, 1970s Brazilian arranger, Arthur Verocai, to contribute. Verocai, who had worked with Fabiano on his forays in Los Angeles, was pleased to participate. In this way, the circle of old and new, so crucial in Fabiano’s work, comes together and flows outwards.

Born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Fabiano is known for his unique compositions and arrangements evoking jazz, bossa-nova and samba, and Brazilian folkloric music. After studying classical piano and theory at a young age, Fabiano started playing guitar at 12 and followed the steps of masters like Dalmo Motta and his late uncle, Lucio Nascimento.
Fabiano moved to Los Angeles in the early 2000s, where he became an in-demand session player working with a variety of artists like Arthur Verocai, Mia Doi Todd, and Aloe Blacc. In 2009, Fabiano formed the adventurous Latin jazz trio Triorganico with woodwind player Pablo Calogero and percussionist Tiki Pasillas. In 2013, Fabiano collaborated with saxophonist Sam Gendel on Sul, an album of traditional South American folk music.

Two years later, Fabiano made his solo debut with the thrilling Dança dos Tempos, a set of originals, covers, and traditional songs that featured contributions from legendary percussionist Airto Moreira. His follow-up LP, Tempos dos Mestres, arrived in 2017, expanding on the style of its predecessor. Released in 2020, his third album, Prelúdio, was Fabiano’s first solo release to consist entirely of original material and was recorded with his Triorganico bandmate Pasillas on drums. Appearing just one year later, Ykytu took a more stripped-down approach, featuring just solo guitar with minimal overdubs.
